While hailing a cab in NYC, Scarlett Johansson looked cute in a floral minidress — here's her full look — but what really took her look to a stylish level was her Stella McCartney soft-pink round sunglasses ($225). The round shape is totally on trend, while the soft-pink hue lent a playful, girlie touch. If pink is too feminine for your taste, these Stella sunglasses also come in black, brown, and dark gray. With Summer right around the corner, we recommend investing in a pair of Scarlett's shades — any hue will do but we love pink — if you want to be noticed while shielding your eyes from the rays.
