Upon losing or forgetting my sunglasses, that is the precise moment I appreciate the power of not only the style component but their functionality to protect my eyes and enable me to enjoy being out in the glorious sunshine. Such was the case last week as I left behind my sunglasses, a pair of aviators I wear nearly every day in the summer months. Thankfully, I was able to trace my steps to where I last had them and there they were. So simple, so nominally important in the grand scheme of things, but a pair of perfect shades are a worthwhile item to have in your possession. One only need one or two, and as you will see here, classic often works the best so long as it works with your face’s shape. Here’s to protecting our eyes and the delicate skin that surrounds it as well as epitomizing effortless chic style.
Last year I shared a detailed post about shopping for the right shape of shades as well as the many benefits of find your ideal pair. And if you were a fan of Diane Lane’s sunglasses in Paris Can Wait, a kind reader recently shared with me they are Oliver People’s from their Row collection; you can shop them here (there are many colors).
