The one accessory that can take an outfit from boring to wow is a cool pair of shades. Sure, watches and belts are important too, but if you plan on spending long hours in the sun (which you probably will this spring and summer) you need something stylish that offers protection from those harmful UV rays.

With the days getting longer and the sun shining brighter, it’s time to find the right pair of sunglasses to complement your look through this season. Since we assume you’ll be spending ample time in the light, we gathered up a few of our favorite shades.

Sunski Treelines – $89

Outfitted with discreet side blinders, these bad boys block out peripheral light, truly shading your precious corneas from the sun’s harmful rays. Plus, every pair comes with polarized lenses, which reduce glare for an even more optimized user experience.
