A glorious summer of fun in the sun is right around the corner and that can only mean one thing — it's time for a new pair of sunglasses! They offer essential protection from the sun's harmful rays, and they are a surefire way to jump-start your summer style. Whether you want to go glamour-girl chic, sporty, urban or incognito a la Angelina Jolie, the best sunglasses for you are right here in this edition of The Trend Report!
The trendiest glamour girl sunglasses have “signature” insignias on the temples — everything from butterflies to daisies!
While the look of these sunglasses is vintage, the 100 percent UV/UVB protection isn't. Beware of picking up a pair of vintage frames to get the look, as they will not offer modern sun protection for your precious eyes.
You'll find polarized lenses that sharpen the contrast between grass and ball (if you're a tennis or golf girl), reduce glare on hills (for hikers or bikers) and other specialized needs. Cool!
One of the trendiest looks are oversized aviator-style sunglasses with brightly colored resin frames — another '70s flashback that is so summer 2006!
Downsize these beauties a notch or two and you'll have a perfectly normal, perfectly classic pair of sunglasses.
