If I have one guilty pleasure, it’s collecting designer and luxury sunglasses. One of the many reasons I love living in sunny Los Angeles, CA is that I have an excuse to always strut around with some new sunnies. From shield sunglasses helping me channel my inner Kardashian to some retro skinny cat eye sunglasses I believe that this fashion accessory should be a staple in every person’s wardrobe. If eyes are the window to the soul, then sunglasses are the storefront to attract and tell a story to the world.
As part of the new fall fashion blogs and videos I wanted to contribute to the conversation by sharing my list of top 5 sunglasses styles to wear in fall 2020. Whether you’re graced by sunny days or you just need a pair of sunglasses to love, check out my favorite styles below (in no particular order).
Fall Fashion 2020 Trends - 5 Sunglasses and Styles to Have In Your Fashion Closet
Skinny Statement Glasses – Retro Rectangular Frames
While I’ve yet to own a pair, I’ve definitely ordered myself, a pair of retro-inspired skinny sunglasses. The style that’s definitely going to be a fall fashion trend includes skinny rectangular frame sunglasses. Thanks to Fashion TikTok, the 80s are back in full swing and so it’s time to either bring out your mom’s vintage sunglasses or grab a pair before they’re sold out. The pair above is the one's I ordered from sunglass company Quay Australia. To shop them click here.
Classic and Cool – Aviator Sunglasses
A classic and I believe universally flattering style, aviator sunglasses should be a staple in every person’s fashion closet. This fall, aviators will of course be in style, but the twist is that statement piece aviators will be key. My favorite pair are the High Key Contrast from Quay Australia (again another Quay, and not the last. I swear this isn't a sponsored post but I wish it was). These trendy sunglasses live up to their name in the mirror lenses that Quay offers for this classic sunglass style.
All the drama – oversized square sunglasses
Similar to my love for shield sunglasses, and echoing my affinity for classic silhouettes, oversized square sunglasses are in my opinion a staple for any fall fashion 2020 closet. The sunglasses I’ve selected are another pair from my Macy’s Style Crew board, click here to shop them (affiliate link). These Prada Linea Rossa Sunglasses offer a universally flattering square lens, that works great for everyday wear.
Show up and show out – shield sunglasses
Shield sunglasses are always a statement piece, and every fall fashion closet needs a good pair of statement fashion accessories. My trendy fall fashion sunglasses are from Versace and they scream opulence with the gold bar on top. I'm so excited to share that not only did I recently join the Macy's Style Crew, but I found the exact pair of Versace shield sunglasses that I was talking about! You can buy them by clicking here, and note please note this is an affiliate link that supports me and the blog with no additional cost to you ever!
Classy and cool – club master sunglasses/ cat eye sunglasses
There is something to say about how much of a boss you feel when wearing cat eye or clubmaster sunglasses. These glasses are staples in fashion closets for the hustlers out there, and I think in fall fashion 2020 trends, these angular frames are going to pop. Because of their exaggerated shapes, they always draw attention to your eyes in the most understated way. My current favorite cat eye sunglasses were inspired by Alex Cooper’s and the Call Her Daddy podcast where she always dons a cool pair of cat eye sunglasses. The pair I’m rocking is the Mosanana Square Cateye Sunglasses available on Amazon here.
What are your favorite sunglasses or fall fashion 2020 closet staples?
