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."
Gucci Techno Color Ultra-Light Aviators
If you're a jet-setter who loves to have some fun, Gucci's Techno-Color Ultra-Light Aviators are your dream sunglasses. Their shape is classic, they're light as air, and they go with just about everything. Even better, the lenses come in bright, shocking colors like orange, green, blue, and – for the less adventurous – brown. If we had it our way, we'd own one in every color. [$325; gucci.com]
