There is no better time than summertime for a pair of new sunglasses -- particularly if you're of the sit on them, forget them in the dressing room, lose them annually variety. This season's hottest shades are mirrored sunglasses and trust us, you'll want to hold on to these highly reflective pairs that instantly up the style ante on any outfit. Whether you try a pair of brightly colored mirrored sunglasses, or a cool metallic pair, let these fashion bloggers, street style stars and fashion week designers show you how it's done.
Jessica Alba (otherwise known as the world's most fashionable mother/actress/CEO) added some edge to her street style with these red-framed mirrored sunglasses. The trick to keeping the look mature: Casually structured pieces like Alba's slim lapel blazer.
Fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury proves the mirrored sunglasses trend can easily outlast the summer heat. Her silver aviators look downright icy paired with metallic accessories, lots of leather and a statement-making pastel trench coat.
Bigger is Better
Phillip Lim is known for coming out with accessories that become instant must-haves (I have vivid dreams about owning the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel), so it's no surprise that he debuted another at his SS '14 Fashion Week show. These bug-eyed mirrored sunglasses look extra chic worn with a coordinating monochromatic ensemble.
Green With Style Envy
Globetrotting style blogger Chiara Ferragni's (The Blonde Salad) green mirrored sunglasses with tortoiseshell frames are like nothing we've ever seen. Lesson learned: a trendy item paired with classic touches (i.e. brocade and tortoiseshell) equals instant glamour.
