Quite the spectacles

Fashion ShowsEntertainment

"It" bags and shoes of the season are a given. But let's talk gotta-have-it sunglasses, spring's must-have extra.

More designers are parading a covetable lineup of sunnies down fashion runways. Some of the latest looks include large round and wrap styles, geometric shapes and oversized cat eyes with colored lenses and elaborate decoration.

But our true style inspiration is British pop star Rita Ora, who has proved that a pair of charmingly offbeat sunglasses is not only wearable but can be a girl's best accessory. The blond bombshell has made it her fashion signature to rock out a tomgirl mix of designer dresses, sneakers and street wear with statement specs, from exaggerated cat-eyes and oversize Ray-Ban aviators to some truly over-the-top styles.

Fashion lesson learned? Even jeans and a tee get instant fashion cred when paired with the pure spectacle of designer spectacles.
