Popular Summer Shades

Lately we have been really feeling the Summer heat! There hasn't been one cool day to actually enjoy being outside. Something I did recently, was gather all of my Sunglasses that I could possibly find, and store them in a small box. I tend to lose my sunglasses because I wear a variety during photoshoots and am constantly switching them up. I tend to store sunglasses in pockets of coats, purses, bags and then completely forget about them. 

I also recently bought a few new pairs to add to my "collection". As I looked around to find some shades for this season, some stood out to me more than others. I realized there is a trend for sure going on. Here are what I have seen as "popular" trends in shades, as well as some of my favorites.


This style has been around for a long time and one of my personal favs! The classic aviators by Ray-Ban can do no wrong! I have also seen lately some aviators that take the shape of mirrored shades. I recently made my purchase of one at h&m for only $7.99! 

Extreme Cat Eye

I only own one pair of cat eye sunglasses and even those aren't as extreme as the ones i've seen lately! It's not a bad thing at all, and I quote like the retro look to these type of shades. I did try some on, and they personally didn't look too good (or at least maybe they aren't my taste). I do recommend trying them for yourself this Summer regardless! 

Round or Oval

This style tends to pop up every now and then. I made my first purchase of round sunglasses last year, as I prepped for New York Fashion Week. I call them my John Lennon sunglasses, haha. I love how they completely change up my look, and even add a little pizazz to my outfits. 

Mirrored or Champagne Shades

I am completely loving the champagne and mirrored styles! I remember being a little apprehensive about this type about a year ago, but once I tried on a pair that I really loved... I didn't look back. I love that they take a regular aviator for example, and make it a bit more flashy with the mirrored look. Same goes with the champagne shades. I love how a light pink can take regular round shades to a more elegant and sweet look. 

Square and Bold

I will always love this look! For sure dark brown or black and bold sunglasses, look the best on me since I have dark hair. This is basically my go-to look when nothing else. I have seen squared sunglasses with thick, bold frames in stores which make them look oh-so chic :)
