Do you have a signature pair of sunglasses? They come in handy. They compliment your look and enhance your personal style so much that when you receive a compliment it's something along the lines of... "those look perfect on you!" #meanttobe?
Think Jackie O or Miss Olivia P. You know immediately know what iconic shape to associate with them. I opt for cat eyes or simple but chic and classic round sunnies. In fact, I've only ever had those 2 pairs of sunglasses my entire adult life.
I loved my ray-ban cat eyes and wore them so much- through scratches, drops, tumbles and fumbles- that I retired them on my 25th birthday. Mr. Wonderful got me a beautiful pair of Elizabeth and James round sunglasses to take the ray-bans' place. And they've been my signature ever since.
And although I won't replacing those anytime soon, I'll be looking to add the wayfarer frame to my arsenal next. Hey, maybe around my 30th birthday I'll find the perfect pair- since I seem to hold on to them for 5 years or so ;)
Here's some eye candy for ya- four pairs of gorgeous statement wayfarers you need now!
Who makes the most classic wayfarer but Ray Ban?! Love them for their great price points, durability, and universally stylish options & color ways.
If you really want to make a statement, look no further than Retro Super Future. These are large (but lightweight!) and command attention. Super indeed.
Want to steal OP's signature look? Well lucky for us, we can- she designed a beautiful collection of wayfarers for Westward Leaning. I love them all. So will you.
Finally, Celine makes the most gorgeous sunnies (and bags, might I add.) Of course these are hard to find (unless you're a Kardashian or Gwyneth Paltrow) but a girl can dream of this perfect pair, no?
P.S. four perfect lip balms to wear with your shades.
