The Sunglass Trends In-the-Know Girls Are Wearing
Sunglasses serve a dual purpose on the streets of fashion weeks around the world: a) protecting the wearer from the swarms of photographers awaiting them outside the shows and b) making them look damn cool, even on practically zero sleep. Along with bags, shoes, and especially cool iPhone cases, they're one of the accessories we'll always take notice of—particularly if they're a style that isn't already everywhere.
Other than Anna Wintour, who consistently wears her signature Chanel sunglasses, most showgoers prefer to switch up their shades to suit their outfit, and this season, there were some definite trends that stood out from the pack, from retro-inspired cat-eye frames to Star Trek-worthy space-age styles.
Below, see—and shop—the five sunglasses trends that dominated Fashion Month this season.
