9 Wild Sunglasses You'll Want to See

May 14 2014 - 1:55pm

Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from the editors at LifeStyle Mirror. Today we are sharing Taylor Davies's picks on this season's most popular over-the-top sunglasses [1].

In the hierarchy of accessories, sunglasses [2] have never really been on top — until now. Statement sunglasses in wild colors, exaggerated shapes, and exotic fabrications are the must-have accessory of Summer. Our obsession began when we first laid eyes on Dolce & Gabbana [3]'s gold [4] filigree cat-eye shades from their Spring collection. They're opulent and intricate — not how we'd typically describe eyewear.

Back in 1970, Linda Farrow [5] was one of the first companies to treat eyewear like fashion. Through collaborations with designers like Prabal Gurung [6], The Row, and even Agent Provocateur [7], the brand continually creates the most covetable — and totally luxe — shades around.

Floral embellishments [8], bright colors, and prints. These are the qualities of our favorite bags and shoes. When it comes to sunglasses, we think the same way about how we wear them. Let the geometric shapes of a pair of Cutler & Gross shades [9] or Karen Walker's glittery intergalactic sunnies [10] stand out against your easy Summer staples, like breezy dresses and distressed denim [11] shorts.

Shop our picks in the gallery below for the most popular sunglasses of the season — it's their time to shine.
