Today just so happens to be one of our favorite (fake) holidays: National Sunglasses Day. This very special day serves to remind us of the importance of UV protection when it comes to our precious peepers, and we’re always happy to honor our all-time favorite summer accessory.
Now, how best to celebrate? In style, of course. It’s time to toss aside those plain old aviators for something a bit more eye-catching—and not only for one day, but for all days. To help you with this noble endeavor, we rounded up 20 of the craziest sunnies of the season. From Gucci’s bedazzled pineapples to Topshop’s starry-eyed shades, there’s a pair for everyone and at every price point—whether you like things bold and bright or sparkling and shiny.
