I have worn the same two pairs of sunglasses for years; Tory Burch sunglasses and Versace sunglasses with a cute little gold ribbon on each side which is totally not my style usually but the ribbon is small and just cute! I was really upset when I saw that my Tory Burch sunglasses had scratches on the lenses so I did what I do and started a search for sunglasses online.
During my search for sunglasses I was reminded that not all sunglasses are alike. Sunglasses come in different styles, colors, and shapes. From leopard print to brightly colored flowers to polka dots, and even camouflage, despite how small sunglasses are, they sure can pack a punch of pattern! I might expect camouflage from a pair of sunglasses in the sporting section at Walmart but I was surprised to see Tory Burch offering a sleek pair of what looks like camouflage sunglasses (#2 below). I’m not brave enough to wear anything camouflage or better yet, camouflage just isn’t my thing.
Here are five patterned sunglasses that will spice up your summer wardrobe!
1 – Bottega Veneta 195/S / $435 at Zappos.com

4 – Mossimo® Cateye Sunglasses – Tortoise / $16.99 at Target
5 – Tortoise Square Sunglasses / Ready for it? $5.80 at Forever21. You read that right. 🙂
If you want to splurge on a pair of sunglasses I suggest you go to your local eyewear boutique and spend time trying several pairs on. Consider the nosebridge, color, fit, and shape when shopping for sunglasses. While it might be fun to own a pair of leopard print or polka dot sunglasses, I think I’d rather spend money on a more basic looking pair that I feel comfortable wearing with any outfit and in any situation. I’d rather pay a lot for a good pair of sunglasses I will wear for years than a little for a pair of sunglasses that will last a few months because they are flimsy. Do you agree? My daughter on the other hand… she’s all about the print! It seems like leopard print sunglasses will always be trendy but what about aviators? A post for another day I guess.
Do you wear sunglasses with a pattern or do you stick to plain, one color sunglasses? Do you have a favorite brand of sunglasses?
