Accessory Report: The Chicest Spring Sunnies

Accessory Report: The Chicest Spring SunniesWe all have them: Those days when you’re running out the door with less than 5 minutes to make yourself look presentable. I unfortunately find myself in this situation more often than I would like. So I guess you could say that by now, I have my running out the door routine down to a science. I throw on an outfit, put my hair in a ballerina bun, fill in my brows, put on some mascara, grab my purse and go. But no matter how much of a rush I am in, I never, ever leave home without a pair of sunnies.

Sunglasses are a girl’s best friend on a sunny day, and my go-to accessory for looking chic on the run. Lately, I’ve found myself reaching for a few styles of sunnies in particular that have been catching my eye. And today I’m going to share these styles with you.

Take a peek below to see which spring sunnies get an A+ in my book…

1. Round Frames
Springtime is the perfect season for breaking out your round sunnies. With music festivals in full swing and summer on the horizon, these ‘70s-inspired frames will serve you well for months to come. Here are my favorite round sunnies…

2. Soft Cat-Eye
I’ve always been drawn to a softer version of the cat-eye sunnies trend. It’s a little more timeless, and it creates a feminine shape for the face. These three make the cut…

3. Classic Wayfarer
A pair of classic wayfarers is something every girl should own. If you find a wayfarer style you fall in love with, it is definitely worth investing in. Personally, my favorite wayfarers are the pair by Kohl’s below…I wear them all the time!

4. Wooden Frames
Wooden framed sunnies are definitely a trendy accessory, but I must admit that I love the look of them this season. The touch of wood adds an element of surprise to your average sunnies, and this surf-inspired look is one that can take you all the way through summer, too. Start shopping below…

    Sunnies are something that are so hard for me to buy – something about my face makes every pair look HUGE, even the ones that aren’t meant to be. So far the only pair of sunnies I’ve been able to find that actually suit me are wayfarers! But I’m still on the hunt

    I’m obsessed with the round frames lately. I always feel so spring/summer wearing them, which in Chicago would be a nice change from this harsh winter.

  • Jessica

    When will you stock up on the LC Lauren Conrad Cultured Cat’s-Eye Floral Sunglasses, when I click on the link it states this product is not available, it even says that when I go to the website and type it into the search engine.

  • Ashley

    Fun post, makes me ache for warmer weather even more!

    I really like the soft cat-eye styles you shared as well as the wood frame ones. I usually sport big rounded rectangular shaped ones. Is there a name for that?! ha

  • Nicole Smith

    I love the cat eye glasses.

  • Savannah Crnick

    That reminds me that I REALLY need to buy some new sunglasses! Wayfarers and Aviators are so classic, but I also like those round sunnies. They’re fun.

  • EmilyV

    These cat eye sunglasses are the best!!! I own Guess cat eye sunnies that I loove…My next purchase would have to be a round one :)
