Trending Sunglasses: Celeb-Inspired Eyewear

If there’s one accessory that’s truly a must-have, it’s a great pair of sunglasses. The trouble is, shopping for sunglasses can be a tad overwhelming. I mean, you have your pick of what feels like thousands of options at any given moment. And there’s extra pressure to get the style right — after all, those sunnies take center stage on your face.

How best to choose the right pair of sunglasses? Take cues from your favorite style-minded celebs, of course. That’s how we’re tapping into trending sunglasses this season, and we found some budget picks you’re sure to love.

Trending sunglasses: Patterns

If you’re all about expressing your fearless side through fashion, look no further than Joan Smalls for inspiration. The model never seems to wear the same pair twice, so it’s unlikely you’ll see these Versace Tribute 51mm Cat Eye Sunglasses on her again — but that look will remain branded in memory for a long time.

Make it your own by selecting a pair with thick frames with a fun floral print, like the pair above from Kate Spade New York.

Trending sunglasses: Studs

A few studs are always a plus if you pull them off the right way. Without going overboard, you can make a bold statement and look sleek and sophisticated, much like Kate Hudson in her Valentinos.

Trending sunglasses: Triangles

Just as oversized frames were everywhere a few years back, the new MVP contender is the triangle. This frame is decidedly unexpected, yet super fun to wear if you want to try something that’s a bit outside of your comfort zone. The style looks best with edgy garb — think leather jackets a la Ashlee Simpson here.

Trending sunglasses: Retro cat-eyes

Katy Perry looks the picture of vintage chic here. Polka-dots, bare shoulders, and cat eyes are the perfect combo for a retro look.

Trending sunglasses: Wrap-arounds

Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, proves that if guys can wear something stylishly, girls can too. I love how she pairs a sporty sunglass shape with an elegant, floaty dress — and knee-high socks! Just goes to show, you can wear anything well when you’re confident.
