You can never have too many pairs of sunglasses. They are one of the few accessories that have the power to transform an entire outfit.
Sunglasses come in all shapes and sizes and can be perceived as sophisticated or trendy. They can be geometric, oversized, thin-framed, thick-framed, tinted lenses or as classic as a sleek pair of Ray-Ban aviators. Celebrities, musicians and fashion icons have made certain sunnies a consistent staple in their wardrobe, claiming a trademark look and leaving a lasting impression.
