17 Best Sunglasses For The Beach To Shield Your Eyes From The Summer Sun — PHOTOS
You know the saying: Sun's out....sunglasses out (at least for me). Now that temps are staying above the 70s, only one thing is on our mind — water. And of course, crop tops, denim shorts, and sunglasses for the beach. So after a long, long winter of snowstorms, hail, and broken umbrellas (really, NYC, screw you), it's time to bask in the sun we've been waiting an entire year for.
Nothing says summer quite like a pair of sunglasses. Of course, bathing suits, hats, cover-ups, and towels are all fun, but a cool pair of sunnies are the ultimate accessory. And, essentially, you can throw as much shade as you want and hide behind them. That's why I love them, at least. If you remember one thing to bring to the pool or beach, it's sunglasses. It's a strong statement, but it's true.
While we all wear sunnies all year long, something about the summer and glasses feels so satisfying. Like you've earned the sunshine. I can look back in my life and identify the summer based on the sunglasses I was wearing that year. Seriously. In 2008, it was a pair of Marc Jacobs oversized glasses. In 2010, aviators with a gold frame. The year 2012 was topped off with a super cool cat eye. Beyond an accessory, they're a benchmark. A reminder of all the fun memories of each year.
Anyone feel this love for them like I do? This year, these are the sunnies that'll change your summer and make you remember it for the rest of your life. Just add a killer bathing suit and hat and you are set, my friend.
Gold and pink are the ultimate combo.
