As the winter melts away and the days start to get longer, it’s time to start thinking about your summertime accessories. Tried and true frames are that for a reason, but playing around with different sunglasses styles and trends can be the best part of getting dressed.
Utilize your sunnies as the finishing touch for styling your warm-weather looks. Whether you’re looking for an added touch of glam or a way to infuse a bit of nostalgia, sunglasses are a summer accessory you should have fun with. We’ve gathered seven warm weather accessories and perfect sunglasses pairings—whether you want your look to transport you to the coast of Italy or the streets of New York City.
Let’s start with summer accessories that will transport you to the coast of Italy. A silk hair scarf matches the romantic vintage aesthetic of these chunky cat-eye sunglasses. Together they evoke an old-school kind of glamour, perfect for those that like their warm-weather accessories with a touch of romanticism.
For those that prefer a more playful approach, these colorful Bottega Veneta shades emit pure joy. The Matisse-inspired printed bucket hat and chunky acetate frames prove that just a slight colorful update can transform the most basic of shapes. While brown, orange, and yellow lens have been seen everywhere, this Kelly-green option is a little more unexpected take on the colored lens trend.
In almost every round-up we include a ‘70s inspired look—and for good reason. The vintage-yet-timeless approach to eyewear that the ‘70s brought(i.e. classic aviator sunnies) feels transcendent of trends because they simply look good! For those that want a little more trend-hitting combo, play up the vintage cool factor with yellow lenses and a crotchet bucket hat.
Here’s a summer combo if you’re looking for optimal sun protection in the most glamorous and dramatic way possible. These oversized round sunglasses are the definition of doing the most. And the perfect pairing to match this aesthetic? A lampshade straw hat with a statement ribbon. Bonus: these shades are only expensive in their looks, priced at just over $60.
Play up the sepia-inspired desert aesthetic of these rectangular Ray-Bans with a chic Western-inspired hat. Going for small tweaks (like brown-tinted lenses) offer just the amount of trendiness while keeping your sunglasses wearable each season and beyond.
A baseball cap and aviators feel quintessential city cool girl, but the trendiest in the city aren’t just throwing on any hat and shades. A Gucci print ball cap invites the luxe streetwear idea of logomania, while the matching Gucci frames feels like a modern take on regular aviators with their rounded square frame.
Some people just want to make a statement when it comes to their summer accessories, and trust me, nothing will invite more compliments than these Miu Miu sunnies. The optical-illusion-inducing oversized lenses feek extra cool thanks to the leopard print touches. Play up the girly-glam of the all brown sunnies with a prim and proper bow – with a leopard twist.
