Make a strong personal statement with these bold sunglasses for spring
Sunglass trends have never failed to make a statement. This season, women’s styles as well as unisex selections are about sleek shapes, saturated colors and expressing your personal style.
“Personal style is everything,” said Julia Gogosha, owner of Gogosha Optique, an eyewear boutique with two locations in Los Angeles. “Aggressive cat eyes and graphic shapes to classic forms — it’s all about personal expression and an opportunity to enhance features and exclaim personal style. Remember, color has no gender. The better a shape fits your features, the better it looks. It’s all composition. Wear what makes you smile and makes you feel swaggy when you put it on.”
Sound advice, especially in time for this month’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, as well as the vibrant lineup of festivals to follow during summer.
Here are the trend-setting, statement-making sunglass styles sure to be spotted around the polo grounds at Coachella and beyond this season.
