With the sun having been on a five-month hiatus, there's nothing more we'd love to do to welcome it back then to soak up all the Vitamin D we can. While our bodies require the basic protection, our eyes need some special TLC of their own. To shield our precious peepers, we like to buy one wallop-packing pair of sunglasses a year to wear from cookouts to garden parties, and we couldn't resist sharing our latest finds from around the web. This season, there's been a '50s renaissance with cat-eyes dominating the shape game, but we've found a slew of other sunglasses that are rife with lens-appeal. There's a whole range out there to suit your optical personality...starting at just $6. So, which one will you pick?
