Just because we’re not spending days basking in the sun’s rays at the beach (covered in SPF, of course) doesn’t mean we shouldn't be protecting our precious eyes and eyelids. The truth is, sunglasses aren’t just a summer accessory. Not only are they essential for protection from the harsh winter sun, but they're also a pretty decent way of hiding the after-effects of one-too-many glasses of Champagne at all the holiday parties you'll be attending soon.
This season brings us a ton of new styles for our choosing, however, winter’s latest releases aren’t just some typical hodgepodge of brightly colored acetate. This year, it’s all about futuristic mirrored frames, pops of enameled color, and retro throwbacks with a modern twist. Whether you have rainbows on the brain with Ray-Ban’s new oil slick-esque aviators or your goal is to channel your favorite ‘70s style icon with Krewe’s oversized frames, there’s something new out there for everyone who wants to freshen up their winter accessories game.
We picked out 15 of our favorite new shades that we just can’t wait to pair with our beloved beanies and scarves. Just don’t forget to pair them with some SPF, too.
