15 Sunglasses Under $20 That Are Actually Cool For Summer
I firmly believe that a pair of sunglasses can make an outfit. Like the perfect addition to an Instagram photo (say, an iced coffee from Starbucks or a newly-manicured hand holding that iced coffee), sunglasses really just give an entire outfit that extra 'oomph.' And oomphs are always good in my book. If you're dreading shelling out serious cash to get that perfect pair of sunnies, fear not. There are dozens of reasonably-priced sunglasses out there that are perfect for your own personal style. Plus, these won't hurt quite as badly if you lose them at some point — which, if you're like me, is just inevitable.
I’m going to start out where every fashionista shopping for a deal should begin their quest for trendy, affordable pieces — Forever 21.

The CLASSIC cat eye pair of sunglasses is the way to go if you want to put together a completely vintage-inspired look.
