fashionLet’s take a second and talk about the weather here in Massachusetts. It has been cold, windy and now we can add wicked rainy to the list too.

So with all this awful weather, it is easy to forget that May is approaching. May is a month of sunshine, laughter, flowers and sunglasses, of course.

Sunglasses, in my head, are like scarves. Some people look fabulous in them while others just can’t seem to get the right look. I fall into the “can’t ever get it right” group – lucky me.

That being said, my lack of sunglass-wearing abilities shouldn’t deter those of you who look great in them.

This summer I implore you sunglass-wearing people to try a different look. One that maybe tests you boundaries a little.

The first look to try for sure is the Wayfarer, which was started by Ray-Ban years ago. This is the one style that never seems to get old. This particular style of glasses comes in so many different colors and is shockingly one of the only styles I can pull off.

The next style of glasses to try would be the catfarer. They are a classy, Audrey Hepburn kind of look that looks nice on just about everyone. This style is great because they add shape to your eyes instead of just being a black square, like the next style of glasses I am going to tell you to buy.

The vintage square, plastic sunglasses are super popular because they are the kind of plastic that can be beat up and sat on and still look great. These are glasses that you should wear to the beach because they can be roughed up and are easily replaced.

The next pair of must-have glasses are the timeless aviators. I must confess, I have three or four different pairs of aviators. They look awesome on everyone. They also just make you look cool, and that’s always an added bonus.

I have also always wanted to see someone rock the completely circular frames like Ben Franklin. I can do no such thing, but it would make me happy to see someone try them and actually pull them off.

Summer, although it is hard to believe, is coming our way, so change things up a little. Try some new shades and find a whole new you this summer. Sunglasses are cheap, so there is no excuse!
