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."
Tom Ford Federico Sunglasses
A couple of things Tom Ford doesn't typically do: unisex anything, colorful, or cheap. But when Mr. Ford puts his mind to something, he does it well. Federicos have been worn by a ton of celebrities and come in many, many colors like orange ($99.99), amber and yellow ($139.99) and dark grey ($146.99). Resist the urge to collect them all and go for a bright color that fits right in with your summer wardrobe. [$190; opticsfast.com]
