Sunglasses are summer’s de rigueur accessories not only because they are a summer fashion staple but also because they protect your eyes from UV rays. So if you are looking for an excuse to add a pair or two to your collection, now is a perfect time.
If you weren’t a fan of the micro sunglasses trend, you can finally heave a sigh of relief—oversized frames are making a comeback this summer and the bigger they are the better.
And speaking of comebacks, get ready to see more and more 70s-inspired silhouettes as it seems that designers can’t get enough of the creative influences this decade offered.
