The Shauns Esk are sunglasses designed in California—specifically for the sensual and feminine woman—from premium-quality acetate. Can you imagine yourself in a pair of Shauns? We can! For us they score a 10!
Round, Women’s Sunglasses
If in the past few years the fashion in women's sunglasses was about square frames and the infamous Wayfarer sunglasses, for 2014 the trends are sure to shift towards round and fun, fleeing from sharp angles for something more soft and sexy! In the 1970s the same shift occured, and thus came the boom of round, “hippy” sunglasses that has since become the mark of a generation. This summer get yourself a pair, either in thick plastic frames like Gigi Barcelona, or with fine metallic frames like the Italian/American Happiness Shades!
Cat Eye Sunglasses for Women
Sunglasses that gained huge fame in the 1950s and 1960s, Cat eye sunglasses are being seen more and more each day in street-style looks around the world. A trend on the rise! Their peculiar form makes them best for those woman with a distinct personality that love to flaunt tradition. And the best part? This season, the looks have softened to allow for a more subtle “cat” silhouette! We recommend the Gigi Barcelona collection, women's sunglasses of excellent quality with which you will surely find your own, distinct New York style. Take a cue from Miranda Kerr!

We have already discusses mirrored sunglasses on many occasions, but since they are totally summer shades, they must not be forgotten! Our preferred brand is Spektre, but it’s best for you to take a look at our gallery and decide for yourself!

We can’t leave colors out of the equations (of course not!). They give vivid life to our summer looks! But this year, the range of browns, such as classic tortoise shell, toffee, and tobacco are all must have women's sunglasses for any elegant lady!

However, the most feminine and fun of women among us count the turquoise, pink, and orchid hues as their strongest ally. Neither overly-classic nor overly-daring, these women's sunglasses in pastel are perfect to define that distinct, you look that we all search for!
