How to Upgrade Your Look With Affordable Sunglasses



Today is the first day of summer and it’s a great time to pull out your cute sunglasses. Sunglasses are accessories that I love to incorporate in my looks. They serve as an instant outfit upgrade while simultaneously protecting your eyes from the bright sun. I like to purchase sunglasses from different stores, to include The Limited, Old Navy and various vintage stores. I’m not a fan of spending a lot of money on designer sunglasses because of risk of damage. It’s so easy to get a scratch on a lens or even break sunglasses. I’d rather stick with the affordable options because if those mess up and I need to replace them, my budget won’t be greatly affected.

When starting your sunglasses collection, it’s always good to have a black and brown pair because those will go with the majority of the items in your wardrobe. Once you have those, it’s great to begin to add unique sunglasses, like ones with different color lenses or different frame shapes. Most importantly you’ll want to have sunglasses that compliment your face shape. You don’t want anything that’s too big or too small so be sure to try on as many pairs as you need to until you find what’s best for you.

If you’re looking for sunglasses similar to the ones I’m wearing, check out these affordable options below.
