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."
ic! berlin Kjell
The only square aviator on this list, ic! berlin's Kjell style – in gold and tortoiseshell with a tinted green lens – is classic enough that you won't need another pair of sunglasses any time soon. The style works for just about everyone, but guys with rugged looks and strong bone structure will do especially well with these. [$285; shadesemporium.com]
