Retro-inspired sunglass trends may come and go (and come back again), and it’s fun to collect and test out circle-framed shades, aviators, and wayfarers in every shade of the rainbow before they go out of style again, there’s still something to be said for the oversized, futuristic shield styles! After all, when it comes to maximum sun protection, bug eyes are the way to go (and I mean that in the coolest way possible), so build out your summer eyewear collection with a pair of shield shades. From aviator-inspired frames like these Dior Rimless Shield Sunglasses, partial-rimmed like these Glam Shield Sunglasses by Vince Camuto, to dramatic-rimmed vintage Burberry frames (kind of GaGa-esque, if you ask me!) and Versace Biggie Sunglasses, the specific styles may vary, but the overall look is effortlessly cool. If you have a hard time justifying splurging on a designer pair because you’re constantly breaking them, consider Tory Burch’s foldable shield frames, which fold at the temple for more compact storage (yes, they’re meant to bend that way)!
