The spring season is here and that means you need a fresh and exciting pair of sunglasses. Your sunglasses will be your most worn item this season and throughout the summer—you'll rock them probably more often than you sport your swimsuit. Contrary to popular belief, your eyewear doesn't need to be basic and boring to be useful. Not only should sunglasses be sturdy and durable for the countless tosses they may endure in their lifetime, they should also showcase your personality. Whether you are quirky and eccentric or minimalistic and classic, be sure to check out some of our favorite retro-inspired styles.
