How to Accessorize with Designer Sunglasses

Lenses, sunnies, shades call them what you will, but sunglasses are definitely one hot fashion accessory. Once used purely to protect the eyes from the glare of the sun, sunglasses have evolved into timeless fashion pieces that will always make an instant fashion statement.

You may not have a designer dress hanging in your wardrobe, but everyone should have at least one good pair of designer shades, perhaps even two. Bvlgari, Dolce and Gabanna, Chanel, Dior, Gucci and even Chopard and Louis Vuitton are just some of the top designer names of fashionable eye candy.

With sunglasses being styled and embellished using modern and trendy designs, they can be great accompaniments to your fashionable wardrobe. And the beauty of owning a pair of designer shades, is you could wear them more often than you would a designer Haute Couture dress fresh from the runway. Sunglasses will also see you through a few seasons, and can be mixed and matched to complete your fashionable look.

Sunglasses could be worn as your only fashion accessory, or you can wear them with earrings or a stylish hat. Although designer shades are hot to have, you can also play around with cheaper options, making it easier to match them to your various outfits.

Sunglasses can also give your whole look a theme, and take you into a completely different era. For example, a simple black dress with stilettos is modern day trendy, but add a pair of huge Jackie O sunglasses and you have yourself a sixties fashion look, fit for a first lady, but with a touch of modern today.

You should always try to match your sunglasses to your outfit. Have a few pairs that can be worn with multiple outfits, and for the days that you just can't match them up a simple black or brown pair, perhaps even with a subtle detail should work fine. These simple shades should be your investment pieces, while you should look at cheaper options for shades that can only be worn with a few items.

TOP SHADY TIP: If you're wearing bright, bold sunnies, try to match something that's bright and bold in your outfit, for example a bright bangle or bold, complimenting handbag.
