Sunglasses have long ago become the casual out-of-season accessory and an essential piece of wardrobe. Nevertheless, summer is always the best time to renew your pair - we collected some of the trendiest shapes and designs during this summer to stay on track with the haute couture latest innovations.

This season divides designers primarily into the two groups: ones borrowed the classic and vintage shapes when others came up with some new frames and decorations taking inspiration from the past as well. The common thing they all share is the tendency for unisex styles and size exaggeration - too mini or too maxi. 

So, in case you prefer classic models, the good news is that aviators are trendy again. The more sporty-looking oversized version of aviators is suitable for the roundish face shapes and can be a good alternative for those who torn between old and new. You also can not go wrong with putting on the Audrey Hepburn retro square shape or flirty cat-eye sunglasses, which could be actualized by the crystalized rim or patterns on the frame. White and round pairs would look fabulous with the retro dress and a wide-brimmed hat. The large shield pairs are still on the fashion pedestal - their futuristic design would be a perfect match with the tank top and sweatpants.

This sporty and glossy at the same time pair by Valentino combines most of the newest trends. It revisits the inspired from the 90s famous "Matrix" shape and features a narrow squared frame. The neon pink (un)intentionally refers us to the early 2000s Britney's favorite, and the sunglasses' simple embellishment and colorful lenses complete the trendiest list of tendencies. What they lack are, probably, the rhinestones and chains that are also very popular during these days.
