If you, like me, are sick of the hipster-standard Ray-Ban wayfarers (and its multitude of rip-offs), Alexander Wang has a solution: zipper frame sunglasses. The black square-framed shades have a similar (and universally appealing) shape similar to wayfarers, but with the added design detail of pewter-colored zipper teeth running along the side of the lenses and down the ear piece.

The zipper frame sunglasses from Alexander Wang were made as part of a collaboration with glasses retailer Linda Farrow. Pick them up for $365 at net-a-porter. Stats for Zipper Hipster Shades Trending: Older & Warm
