50 Unusual Eyewear Accessories

From Designer Insect Sunnies to Crocheted Summer Spectacles

— January 15, 2015 — Fashion
This list of unusual eyewear looks includes crocheted summer spectacles and sculptural shades that rival styles worn by Rihanna herself.

With winter comes cool weather and the season's latest designer collection reveals. As the weather grows harsher, many of us will escape to a tropical destination that will result in some much-needed sun and sand.

When travelling to warm climates, packing comfy clothes and edgy sunglasses is key. Even if dressed for comfort, one can make a statement while simply putting on a pair of their favorite shades.

These unusual eyewear looks include playful and whimsical frames along with glasses that are more daring in their aesthetic. Whatever your preference, the right pair makes all the difference when making a summer style statement.
