1. Colored Wayfarers
With neons, colored denim, and color blocking being so hot this year, it's no surprise that bright-colored sunglasses are on-trend as well. Colored wayfarers (like the ones above) are the most popular in colored frames. You can also find bright neon frames. I usually suggest pairing bright accessories with neutral clothing, but when it comes to colorful sunglasses, I'd say more is more. Pair them with colored denim and a modern white top. If you do want to wear them with a neutral, go with black. It'll add to the cool vibe of these shades. Click here to shop wayfarers.
The aviator is a classic that is hot every year. In the last few years the brown aviator sunglasses were so trendy. This season you'll notice a lot of popular brands are coming out with more shiny, silver, or mirrored aviators. The silver tones look great with blacks and browns. I wouldn't pair them with anything too girly or traditional. Aviators look best with a modern or sporty look. Click here to shop aviator sunglasses.
We can thank Mad Men and Etsy for the explosion of vintage-inspired fashion. I love how these Kate Spade cat-eye frames are a subtle interpretation of the trend. They'd be perfect with delicate floral or polka-dot prints, which luckily are also very in this season. You might be tempted to wear cat-eye sunglasses with a very Mad-Men inspired dress or outfit, but you want to mix your styles up a bit so you don't look like you're in costume.

4. Oversized Rectangular Frames
The over-sized square frames are another great influence of retro fashion. The great thing about this shape is it goes with just about any style and looks best with any face shape. I always have a pair in brown and a pair in black for a quick grab-and-go pair to keep in my purse or with all the accessories in my entryway. Whether you're wearing something casual or formal, sporty or girly, these over-sized sunglasses always look great. Click here to shop.

6. Patterned Frames
From florals to polka dots to animal prints, patterened accessories are everywhere for Spring and Summer. I love these fun retro-inspired polka-dot frames. Pair them with shorts and a tee or a casual summer dress. Click here to browse more patterned sunglasses.
My favorite is still without a doubt the oversized square frames. They just go with everything. Which ones are your favorite?
