While you should certainly be protecting your eyes 12 months of the year, there’s a definite argument to be made for Summer 2020 sunglasses trends. After all, you're spending more time outside — if only in your own backyard or on a walk down the street — and the sun is shining brighter than usual. As such, it’s time to update that accessory drawer of yours now that the warmer half of the year is right around the corner.
Sure, aviators, tortoise frames, and wayfarer styles will always be a timeless classic, but you can certainly try out a runway trend or two while you're at it. This season, designers have really turned up the heat on the whimsicality, embracing trends like color, futuristic side shield looks, and chunky chain straps to accessorize your shades. There is nothing boring about these sunglasses. They will be sure to amp up your every look this season, no matter how dressy or casual.
Slip them on with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, throw them in your bag when you’re headed to the park, or be sure to add them as a final accessory to that after-hours look — just for show. Ahead, shop 6 trends to step your sunglasses game up this summer.
