Summer Shades: Sunglasses under $20


It's officially summer! And what is a summer without fabulous sunglasses, right? I love sunglasses. My favorite are any sunglasses that are over sized. I usually stick to the neutral colors like black or rose gold, when picking out my sunglasses. 

I like to have a few different pairs. I always either break or lose sunglasses. Every summer I seem to get through at least a few pairs.  I would rather get few different affordable pairs of sunglasses each summer and not be too upset when I lose them than have expensive designer shades that I would worry about losing anywhere I go. 

When picking out new shades I usually go to Target, Kohl's or Forever21. I find the best deals on sunglasses there. My current faves are these (featured on our twitter and instagram a lot) which are aviators from Vera Wang's line at Kohl's.  A few additional pairs that I'm considering for this year are the ones above.

Sunglasses #1 are Aviators. Yes. Another pair.  These are black/grey, which are completely different than the rose gold that I already have, right?  These just add the 'cool factor'. You could be wearing jeans and a T-shirt and once you throw on aviator sunglasses you look so cool- as if you were just heading to a festival as oppose to going to the store to buy apples. Plus they go well with any face shape.

Sunglasses #2 &3 are Wayfarers. I've actually considered buying the real Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses awhile back, but like I said before I lose sunglasses too often to spend that much money on an item. These alternatives are pretty adorable. The sunglasses at the bottom left have a cute detail on the side frames. These sunglasses look best with a heart shaped or oval face shape.

The last pair of sunglasses are Cat Eye sunglasses. I like these because the 'cat eye' shape of them is very subtle. Clara is a HUGE fan of this shape of sunglasses, whereas I am just starting to like them. I featured both colors of these sunglasses, because I'm having a hard time choosing- both of them look adorable.  These look great if you have a heart shaped or square face shape.

The best news is that all of these sunglasses are below 20$, so you won't be breaking the bank trying to look fashionable this summer. Especially if you are on a student budget. 

What kind of sunglasses are your favorite? Do you splurge or save on sunglasses?
