This spring's hot trends in sunglasses: Round, pastel, all black and cool cat eye

Whether you’re jetting off to a dreamy beach vacation or simply updating your look for the warmer seasons to come, nothing feels cooler than sporting a great pair of shades.

Style expert Lilliana Vazquez stopped by TODAY Wednesday to show us the four hottest trends in sunglasses — and where to find celebrity-inspired looks for less.

Modern cat eye

“This is a trend I think that looks good on all face shapes,” Vazquez told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb during her “Luxe for Less” segment.

Love Child - Quay sunglasses from, $50


Seen on supermodel Gigi Hadid, today’s rounded shades have a softer look than they did in the past.

“What I like about them is they’re not the ‘70s bug-eye round ones,” Vazquez said.

All black

Seen on tastemakers like the Olsen twins, all-black frames and all-black lenses make a statement.

Another bonus?

“These are great if you have a hangover and you don’t want anyone to see your eyes,” Vazquez said.

The hot new colors are pastel, like sweet pale pink as seen on Scarlett Johansson.

And for fans of “Top Gun” or those still gunning for a sequel, hold on to those classic aviators.


“We all have our aviators, which we love,” Vazquez said. “Don’t throw those out. They always come back.”
