My Top 3 Essential Sunglasses
To me sunglasses are like shoes and handbags; they're just as essential, and I tend to have two to three great basics that go with everything. My absolute favorite for all seasons is a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses with a slight cat-eye frame. They go with absolutely anything, whether formal or casual, neutral or brightly-colored. A vintage-inspired black cat eye and a pair of over-sized aviators are my other two essential sunglasses.
If you want to invest in a quality pair of sunglasses, I cannot recommend the tortoise shell sunglasses enough. Like I said above, they're perfect for all seasons; I love to wear mine in the summer with my boho-chic outfits, and in the fall and winter, they take on a much more sophisticated look with a suit or a trench. Find a pair that has some black or at least dark brown in the print, so you can pair it with both brown or black and any number of neutrals in between. A pair with classic wayfarer frames or a slight cat eye like the ones pictured above are my favorite.
I purchased a pair of black cat eye sunglasses for a photo shoot a few summers ago, and they have become a staple of mine. Extreme cat eye sunglasses are great if you're really going for that vintage-inspired look. Though I love a pair that is a bit more subtle; they go so well with my black maxi dresses during summer, and they also look so chic with a little black dress during fall and winter.
Over-sized aviators are my new favorites when it comes to sunglasses, particularly a pair with gold-tone frames and brown gradient lenses. Just like the tortoise shell frames, they go so well with both casual or dressy-casual looks.
