Sunglasses are one of the only accessories you can rock all year round — hey, it is still sunny when there's snow on the ground. And, that makes the sometimes-higher price tag a little less painful (if you can keep from sitting on them or leaving 'em in the back of a taxi, of course). That said, with temperatures on the rise, those more out-there optics with colorful adornments and cheeky add-ons are starting to feel just right now that we're slowly pushing the dark, wool outerwear to the back of the closet.
The spring runways were full of quirky sunnies begging to be worn in warmer weather. Carolina Herrera's models walked the runway in futuristic white shades; Jason Wu showed gradient, cat-eye styles; and Marc by Marc Jacobs' '70s-inspired lenses evoked stylish days of the past. Wear oversized, pink sunglasses with spring's best floral frocks and round looks with cool-girl denim duds. Click through to shop both designer and affordable shades in kooky styles that'll make your peepers center stage.
