The sun isn’t a summer-only phenomenon, which means that the advent of fall is no reason to forgo a pair of sunglasses. In fact, autumn is the perfect season to showcase a different, slightly more restrained look that a great pair of sunglasses will help you nail down.
But fall frames require a different sensibility than the season of sun worshiping. Instead of the metal shades that can feel icy cold when you first put them on, go for pairs made from acetate or horn, with an autumnal color palette to accentuate the rest of your fall look. Varying shades of brown and dark red, tortoise shell, and basic black should do the trick. And leave your bright-colored, reflective lenses for warmer climates and choose subtler tints in green, gray, or brown.
