100 Sultry Summer Shades

From Gold Gilded Glasses to Stylish Lightweight Shades

— February 28, 2013 — Fashion
It might still be snowing out there, but soon enough the sun will begin to shine brightly and these fantastic summer shades will help shield your eyes from the light while still looking chic.

What's important to notice about this collection of summer shades is that they aren't the basic, boring black color schemes that usually dominate the market. Instead, they are made of funky materials like wood and sport colors that are vibrant and fresh to help make them easy to wear in the heat. I've also curated this collection of summer shades to be relatively ornate because sunglasses are the one area of fashion where some people feel the most comfortable going wild. Basic outfits can be really kicked up a notch with the right shades and these summery ones will have you ready for the boardwalk.
