Spring/Summer 2011 Trend Alert: 70’s Inspired Sunglasses

April 20, 2011 • Accessories, Yahoo


Summary: Ah, the return of the big Jackie-O-esque sunglasses! Love 'em or leave 'em, but you can't avoid them. My mother has never given up on her collection of larger-than-life sunglasses. In fact, she has some pairs that actually date back to the Jackie era. Well, lucky for her, she is so retro…she's back in style! Now personally this 70's inspired sunglasses trend is one I must admire from afar. I have a small face and the large frames look awful on me, but I do love them on others. So if the frame fits, wear them! You can't go wrong with these casual glam sunglasses.

    Some great looking sunglasses there. Unfortunately they are all out of my price range;(. Well maybe except for the Armani Exchange one, at $75 I could possibly consider buying that one.
