Spring is the perfect season to bust out your statement sunglasses! As soon as the temperature starts to rise, we are all itching to don a great accessory that symbolizes the forthcoming warmer months- that to me is a pair of unconventional sunnies. Everyday, I check out my go-to roster of fashion blogs for style inspiration – the majority of which are based out of Paris, because I have a sick obsession with that city of chic, (after all it’s one of the fashion capitals of the world) and California, because I lived in San Diego for a short period of time in my late teens and I have to admit, the little SoCal girl that I was will forever be a part of me. So, after perusing a number of trendsetters’ blogs from different parts of the globe, I’ve come to a conclusion that the eyewear trends this season are round panto frames and mirrored lenses. You’re probably wondering what panto frames are – the word “panto” comes from the word “pantoscopic” which means, “seeing everything or wide view” and these frames have a nice vintage aesthetic which I love especially with the exaggerated round frames. I urge you to try something new this spring! And remember: not only does wearing a great pair of sunnies instantly update your look, they will also protect you from UV rays and wrinkles!
