Fashion & Accessories

By Alexandra Taylor

A summer look is never complete without a pair of fun and stylish sunglasses. Not only for UV protection, sunglasses have become an essential component of summer style, completing any outfit from day to night and from the beach to the city streets. Finding a pair of flattering shades can be difficult, but with the variety of shapes and colors available, you can be sure the perfect pair is out there. From round and square shapes to oversize and aviators, there are sunglasses to fit every facial type. Play up the color and style for the summer with colored lenses and eccentric shapes. If you are a little more daring, you can shop for pairs in two tones and side embellishments like the collaboration of Alexander Wang for Linda Farrow.

Alexander Wang’s eccentric sunglass collection is stylish with a vintage throwback, sure to catch the attention of many New Yorkers. Available at Opening Ceremony in Manhattan at 35 Howard Street; visit http://www.openingceremony.com

DSquared2′s oversized square sunglasses in orange are flattering and add a pop of color. These two toned sunglasses have gradient lenses and also are available in a beige and black combination as well as in red and black. Find them at Bloomingdales.com and Nordstrom.com.
