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."
Gold & Wood B24 Sunglasses
Gold & Wood sunglasses are only made of precious metals and precious woods. Hence the name and the price tag. These frames epitomize old-world manliness. The natural grain of the wood and the strong shape of the B24 style bring to conjure images of downhill racers, yacht owners, and military strongmen. Put them on and feel your posture change.
