Since I live in an area of the country that has lots of sunny days all year long, I consider sunglasses a practical necessity. Eye protection isn't the only reason to wear sunglasses though because they can also be a fun fashion accessory. Once you've decided on the best style of sunglasses based on the shape of your face, you can concentrate on finding just the right trendy style in sunglasses. The only caveat for petites when choosing sunglasses is to keep them in proportion size-wise, so skip the huge, oversized sunglasses if you're a short woman.
Tortoise shell--faux, of course--is a top trend in sunglasses for fall 2012. Here's a top-rated style of sunglasses that features a tortoise shell design on the frames and a squared off rectangular shape. Tortoise shell has been popular for years although its trendy quotient waxes and wanes. We can always count on a classic to be appropriate, and the tortoise shell design remains a fashion classic, so it will continue to be fashionable even when it's not a top trend. These Vogue sunglasses are available from Macy's.
Sunglasses' frames patterned with print are a top trend for fall 2012. These classic wayfarers feature a colorful print inspired by the paintings of Mondrian. a Dutch painter whose works inspired color-blocked fashion during the 1960s. On the whimsical side of fashion, these sunglasses should put anybody in a happy "frame" of mind. These Ray-Ban sunglasses are available from Bloomingdale's.
5. Pink Frames
Pretty in pink for fall? Although it may seem a bit unusual, one of fall's trendy colors in 2012 is pink, including pastel hues as well as deeper pink colors. So why not have some fashion fun with sunglasses and opt for girly pink? Here are sunglasses that combine two trends--pink and pattern--in one stylish pair of sunglasses.
