I obsess over sunglasses quite a bit- I love how easy it is to transform your look by merely putting on a pair of sunglasses. Whether you lean on the simpler side of the spectrum, or if you're drawn to extravagant prints, a pair of sunglasses will either accentuate your aesthetic or balance the look. Gathered my favorites up top, and combed through hundreds of styles to bring you the gems in the following styles:

Cat-eye/retro: Retrosuperfuture 'Ragazza Carusa' / MYKITA 'Dawn' / ChloƩ 'Carlina'

Square/flat: Retrosuperfuture 'Lira Maculato', Thom Browne 'TB 703' / Saint Laurent 'Bold 1' / Tom Ford 'Rock'

Wire-frame: Vuaret 'Round Swing' / Ahlem 'Concorde' / RAEN 'Benson' / Retrosuperfuture 'Wire Zero'

Rimless: Tom Ford semi-rimless / Maui Jim / FRED

O.K. Back from the radio silence now, for good! This rut felt like Mercury was in constant retrograde since the start of the year, and something just clicked after returning from a fourteen-day trip in Japan last week. I'm not sure if this sense of clarity is due to the fact that I'd left the country when it was (almost symbolically) hazy/rainy and come back home to longer days full of sunshine, but I guess it's true that my clock spins on its own time-- it feels like the new year is finally here, now.
