This academic year at Penn State has been a mix of confusing weather — 70 degrees one week and a blizzard the next. The one fashion accessory that can be used regardless of the season is a cute pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are the effortless way to make any outfit pop. Valley has compiled the perfect list of sunnies that look good no matter what the temperature is outside.
This year retro sunglasses are back in style. They’re big, bold, and always seem to make you feel like a 60s-fashion icon. The color of choice? Yellow. That’s right, retro yellow sunglasses, like these ones from Missguided, are in right now. Wear these with lazy hair and minimal makeup for a chic look.
Another style to try out are super reflective, mirror-like glasses. They look best in a blue/silvery tone- perfect for winter and summer. These pair well with laid back sporty outfits and a high ponytail. For an edgier look, try these from Urban Outfitters. The pointed corners and shape will make a bold, eye-catching statement.
If you love a 90s look, then these sunglasses from ASOS are perfect for you. They are super simple, but still add edge to any look. Their perfection comes from their shape- not complete circles yet not rectangular. They scream Sex and the City. Wear with a long black trench coat and black loafers for that old-school NYC look.
If you want something that draws inspiration from Audrey Hepburn, then you’ll want a pair of oversized cat eye sunglasses. Make them more modern silver details, like these Marc Jacobs ones.
The best part about sunglasses is that there are styles and colors for everybody. Whatever you like, there is 100 percent a pair that fits your criteria. This year-long accessory is a necessary staple that changes in trend year after year. Valley wants to know, what’s your favorite pair of sunglasses?
