There is never a wrong time to buy sunglasses, but fall may be the perfect season to do so. Whereas summer is all about showcasing your style and flair, there is a refined subtlety to autumn. Yes, we want to look good, but we like to do so with an understated elegance.
With that in mind, here are five pairs that capture that ideal for women looking to upgrade their eyewear.
These cateyes from fashion designer Michael Kors are playful without going overboard. A popular style, this pair offers a sophistication perfect for an elegant night out or a fun day shopping around town (think Boston’s Newbury Street, New York’s Fifth Avenue or Los Angeles’ Rodeo Drive).
When it comes to sophistication, you can’t go wrong with Celine. This sleek, no frills look is just one example of what this brand does right. It’s simple. And beautiful. And that’s exactly what you want out of a pair of sunglasses.
Big and round, this Marc Jacobs pair represents the perfect segue from summer to fall. They are fun to wear on a sunny, crisp autumn day, all while retaining a modesty that reflects this time of year. And at a relatively low price, they are a great way to enhance your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Put on this pair and you will turn heads wherever you go. For a more subdued approach go with the black frames. For a bolder look, blue is our choice.
This brand embodies all the qualities of its founder, Miuccia Prada, the Italian designer who is known for the fashion line Prada that she created more than three decades ago. Yes, Miu Mius are sleek and stylish. But they are also fun.
Slightly less uninhibited as others in the line (click here to see Miu Miu’s other styles), this pair does have some playful options when it comes to frame color. Choose black for a more sophisticated look or havana if you want to hold onto the last harbingers of summer.
