When I recently moved part-time to Miami…(more about that here), I realized a lot of my sunglasses have a more New York City vibe. Lot’s of square, black very to the point sunglasses make up most of my collection. But anytime I had a tropical vacay, like that time I went to Barbados Carnival or my many trips to Tulum, I found myself investing in more fun and colorful sunglasses like these beauties from Nroda Eyewear which is a black owned business. So now that I’m in a place where it’s sunny 95% of the time, I’ve been looking to expand my sunglasses collection and just added these Dior So Lite beauties to my stash. I featured them recently in this Spring Haul YouTube Video so if you want more details make sure to watch. And because I’ve been scouring the internets looking at sunglasses I thought I’d go ahead and put together a Guide for you all featuring affordable to luxury sunglasses and sunglasses chains that I’m loving. Make sure to bookmark this post for Spring and Summer accessory inspiration.
SUNGLASSES UNDER $20
A lot of my favorite sunglasses are actually under $20! Like these Celine Dupes from & Other Stories that I wear all the time. They are perhaps my favorite sunglasses. Then there’s ASOS who has a plethora of amazing quality sunglasses for next to nothing! If you love sunglasses definitely peruse ASOS because they have everything and every dupe!
Now I love a great sunglasses chain. They add just a little extra touch to any outfit and immediately elevates a look. I currently have two and I got both for under $20 at ASOS. Here’s a cool way to style sunglasses chains with your favorite pair of sunglasses.
SUNGLASSES UNDER $60
Now luxury sunglasses can run you anywhere from $200 and up! I used to think is was crazy to spend that kind of money on sunglasses until I realize the price is for the quality and helps me not to lose them at every turn! I had a really bad habit of losing all of my sunglasses when I’d buy dupes or lower end price point sunnies. But when I know I’ve spend good money on a pair, I NEVER LOSE THEM (knock on wood). LOL. Luckily lots of the place that sell luxury sunnies have sales on them eventually like at Farfetch (they currently have lots of Fendi and Gucci sunnies on sale), MyTheresa (they currently have Loewe and Zimmermann sunnies on sale use code EXTRA10 for 10% off sale items) and Nordstrom. Just check out the sales and look out for discount codes too! When it comes to luxury sunglasses I own a pair of Celine sunnies, these Burberry sunnies, a pair of Loewe Sunnies, these Dior So Lites I’m wearing and a brand new pair of Versace interchangeable sunglasses.
SHOP THE LOOK
I’m thrilled with my It’s a Bugs Life sunglasses. They are just the right amount of extra for my life here in Miami Beach and they are actually super light which is why they are called the Dior So Lite sunglasses. They come in a few colors including black, pink and this beige color. I also just invested in a pair of Versace sunglasses and what I love about them is they come with 3 interchange sets of frames in clear, green and black! So it’s like 3 pair of sunglasses for the price of 1. I’ll show them soon in a Youtube video but go ahead and check them out for yourself before they sell out. They are a great investment for sure if you want a pair of sunglasses that will really work for the money!
