I wrote a post on why we need SPF to age gracefully (check it out – under ‘Skin Care’ on the panel to the left), so I thought I would share my current favorite sunglasses, call it SPF for your eyes, that I think everyone needs to be incorporating in their wardrobes. You should always have a good staple pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV rays. I don’t ever have just one vibe when it comes to my wardrobe, i’m pretty much all over the place, hence pullingravity. So here are some styles that are my go-to’s.
This season’s it-girl sunglass designer is Poppy Lissiman. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve probably seen a pair from her line on the face of a model someplace on Instagram without a doubt. She’s got some funky sunglasses, but I am loving the ‘le skinny’ line. It’s a personal favorite because they give any outfit an edge, especially with the different colors that are out. https://poppylissiman.com/products/sunglasses/le-skinny-sunglasses-black

Cat eye sunnies are SO IN right now and I love it. You’re going to hear me talk about Audrey Hepburn a lot, I’m a little obsessed. Cat eyes just remind me of her look. Chic, sophisticated, bold, and feminine. They play up any outfit, and that’s the kind of staple piece we all need. The one’s I really like are these ones from Le Specs. Great quality, and they come in tons of different colors to play up your outfit for the spring. https://lespecs.com/the-last-lolita-1602115-black-smoke-mono-las1602115
If you still want that look, but you’re looking for something more affordable, Urban Outfitters carries so many retro, modern, colorful looks: https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shop/wild-child-cat-eye-sunglasses?category=womens-sunglasses&color=060
Oval frame sunglasses, clout af. Need I say more? You’re either currently “ew-ing” or “yaaas-ing” after reading that, but I dig them. They give an outfit a fun vibe, and it hits the dress-up factor. Acne studios has them in the colors that are poppin’ for Spring. https://www.acnestudios.com/us/en/mustang/17A152-8H8.html
If you’re still going for the fun vibe and this season’s top Spring colors, UO has some great affordable options too: https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shop/venice-oval-sunglasses?adpos=1o1&cm_mmc=SEM-_-Google-_-PLA-_-307629622960_product_type_w_product_type_acc_product_type_sunglasses_brand&color=102&creative=209990449589&device=c&gclid=CjwKCAjwwbHWBRBWEiwAMIV7E0wYTtFhaZD-TFe7CEYNeVt5zrqyxk0aG3vfvPf7HPFxB2ga9PIuchoCYBwQAvD_BwE&inventoryCountry=US&matchtype=&mrkgadid=3206393185&mrkgcl=671&network=g&product_id=42633487&quantity=1&rkg_id=h-4a7cae7bbdffccbeca98a6d4bbfdb3f5_t-1523348332&size=ONE%20SIZE&type=REGULAR&utm_campaign=Google&utm_content=307629622960_product_type_w_product_type_acc_product_type_sunglasses_brand&utm_medium=paid_search&utm_source=SEM&utm_term=GSC%20-%20Women%27s
Can’t forget the cult favorite, Aviators. Everyone I know has at least one pair. They’re a staple piece, and they go with just about every outfit in your closet. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ray-ban-org-aviator-62mm-sunglasses/3890330?page=3&top=72

Hold up, hold up, hold up. You thought I was about to end that list without these sick shades? Walk it like I talk it. Thanks for the style inspo’ Quavo. These shades are bad, and they give a little somethin’ to an outfit. I don’t even need to explain. Check out my IG in the tab to the left to see how I styled a pair similar to these babies. https://9five.com/collections/9five-st-james
