This spring, the standard black-frame shades are taking a backseat to lighter, more playful sunglasses – but that doesn't mean you have to look like Elton John. All 28 of these brands are designing timeless shades with interesting hues and shapes that make a distinct break from your old frames. "Eyewear is an easy way to incorporate a little color into your look," says Garrett Leight, of Garrett Leight California Optical. "And it's not a huge commitment, like a yellow suit or a pair of white pants; it's just a small accent."
Dior Homme Black Tie 172S Sunglasses
Where Dior Homme's 182S style looks great with black, formal suits, their 172S style is better suited for the every day. A classic aviator shape with lightly-tinted lenses and two-tone acetate frames, these are great for bigger guys whose style swings more towards boat shoes and cuffed pants. We recommend the Black/Brown color combination if you're looking for a pair to wear with everything. If you want to be a little more bold, the Blue/Shaded will do nicely.
