Sunglasses have a natural ability to add instant glamor and an effortlessly stylish factor without having to spend hours in front of the mirror which makes it the number one accessory to go for when you are pressed for time and are on a super busy schedule. Considering the fact that it also protects your eyes from the dangerously damaging UV rays which could lead to problems such as cataracts, eye wrinkles etc., highlights their functional quality as much as their vanity factor. Here are a few amazing trends that you could adopt for the rest of this summer.
