From Audrey Hepburn to Beyoncé: Why Sunglasses Will Never Go Out of Style

Wednesday May 20, 2020

One of our favorite things about the spring and summer months is all of the adorable outfits we get to wear. From pretty florals through to strappy sandals and sundresses, there are so many more ways to express your style when it's warm and sunny outside.

It's not just our outfits that we get excited over, but the chance to accessorize too. From cute pumps to chic sunhats, there are plenty of options to make your warm-weather wardrobe pop, and we especially love to express our style with some on-trend shades.

Cat-eye to aviator, heart-eye to out-there, there are so many pretty and preppy styles to choose from, and everyone from silver-screen starlets to global songstresses has taken advantage. Here are just four of the reasons why we're convinced that our favorite accessory will endure forever.

Sunglasses Are Timeless

Lots of accessories prove to be a fashion flash in the pan. While they might reign supreme one summer, they're gone by the next. Prime examples include everything from cute and quirky Alice bands through to tie-dye hair scrunchies and neon nails, all of which come and go in a continual fashion march. Sunglasses, on the other hand, are the exception to the rule. Modeled by everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Beyonc over the years, these useful additions to our wardrobe never go out of style, making them a guilt-free investment piece for those who are considering splurging.

They Complement Every Outfit

Not only are sunglasses always on-trend, but they have the handy habit of complementing every outfit imaginable. No matter what fashions come and go over the years, a cute pair of shades always helps to lift them to another level, adding a sweet and summery vibe. This means that whether you're a hedonistic punk rocker or prefer cute sundresses on warm spring days, you'll always be able to find a pair of sunglasses to match your mood and add the finishing touch to your outfit.

There's So Much Choice

If you want to know why cute shades are so good at completing a look, it's because they offer an amazing amount of choice. One only has to take a peek at a retailer like to see that there are a whole host of different sunglasses styles available, in dozens of different colors and from a range of designers, from Ray-Ban through to Gucci. This means that you can choose a pair for every occasion, from sleek black shades that finish your monochrome ensemble through to chic cat-eye frames to add an on-trend 50's vibe to your outfit.

They're Practical, Too

As if all of the above weren't enough to cement their place in the eternal fashion hall of fame, sunglasses have the added boon of being practical, too. Nothing ruins a look like having to squint against the glare from the bright summer sun or spoils a day as quickly as the headache that results. Protecting your eyes from damaging rays while also looking good, sunglasses are the ultimate example of practical and fashionable in one.

Isn't it time you invested in another pair?
