By this time of the year, our winter wardrobe is usually in need of a facelift. We’ve long since packed away our holiday sequins and velvets and have already devoted our next shopping spree to new spring clothes (which, unfortunately, will be off-limits for a few more months), meaning that our current dressing situation can end up looking pretty drab.
While we’re all for dark and moody vibes (aka black, black, and black) during the most dreary time of year, a burst of brights, an interesting detail, and a unique shape here and there can help breathe new life into our everyday look. And what easier way to bring in that much-needed pop than with a pair of sunglasses?
We rounded up some of winter’s most interesting eyewear offerings. From neon and rainbow tortoiseshell to quirky shapes of all sorts, there’s a little something for everyone.
Even if you refuse to dress in anything but black, gray, and olive, liven things up a bit with statement-making shades. Below, our 18 picks of the season.
