The days are getting shorter, but a pair of sunglasses is forever. Or at least until they get sat on, or left in an Uber. Whether it’s a high-end hunny or those more forgetful or frugal-minded — September offers three trends with new styles priced for everyone. 


No math necessary

Smoke X Mirrors (PICTURED ABOVE)

Go to the head of the class in bold model GEO VIII, a featherweight piece constructed of stainless steel with flat lenses.

(212) 647-7677,


Betsey Johnson

For those who missed out on the #StarbucksUnicornFrappuccino last spring, mythical (no, it’s real) model UNICORN offers some subdued, stylish magic.

(800) 414-7656,



Shimmer into fall wearing shapely model SLN726S, an octagon adorned with rough cut crystals. The subtle color goes with anything and the jewels bring the sparkle.

(800) 423-3023,


Oval and Oversize

Any style made famous by Jackie O is a must.

Victory Optical

Go retro in the mod model 549, inspired by original Victory designs from the 1960s. A limited edition, these pleasing purples are made in the USA.

(908) 236-9300,


Anne Klein

Sunglasses can never be too big or too dark. Go glam in chic model AK7000, and be prepared to hide from the paparazzi.

(800) 505-5557,



Inspired by traditional New Orleans jazz, and named for an all-female Mardi Gras krewe, statement-making model IRIS is part of the custom acetate Stella collection.

Colored Lenses

To paraphrase Louis Armstrong, “I see lenses of green,red lenses, too.”


The on-trend flat lens-over-frame construction and energetic colors of full-metal model BLAZE (RB3580N) enhance the classic cat-eye shape for a glorious mix of old and new.

(800) 422-2020,


Ocean Pacific

Polarized model HOWLEE has such a nice price point, why not just chuck it all and become a full-time surfer? OK, part-time then. The waves are calling.

(800) 645-3733,



Taking its visual cue from Janis Joplin and the Summer of Love, limited edition model DAZZLE ORANGE takes a little piece of your heart in a juicy hue.
