Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Summer Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists.

Meet Corinne, the trendy fashionista who blogs her funky, fresh #OOTDs over on Pink Avenue. We sat down with Corinne to learn more about her bold personal style and of course, her sunglass personality. Read on for her fashion tips, photos, and more! Oh, and if you’re wondering where she got those pink clubmaster style shades, look no further. We’ve got you covered.

Bold & Bright: Corinne of Pink Avenue

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with?

Corinne: Trendsetter, for sure! I always like thinking outside the box when it comes to fashion and style.

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Corinne: That’s a tough one! Probably my Christian Louboutin pumps, because overpriced 5-inch heels are totally what I would need on a deserted island. :)

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Corinne: My husband! He is my favorite person in the world and also happens to have a very busy lunch schedule.

Bold & Bright: Corinne of Pink Avenue

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Corinne: Wearing something you feel uncomfortable in! What you wear should always exude confidence and personality.

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Corinne: I love Instagram (you can follow me at @corinneroxanne). It’s a real addiction but I try to limit myself to 30 minutes per day.

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite Sunglass Warehouse shades?

Corinne: I love classic aviators! My whole family wears them. They’re a great shade for both guys and gals.

Thank you, Corinne, for answering our questions and getting to know our SW readers! We love your Bold & Bright look! Check out more Pink Avenue styles here. #DareToWear

Out & About

This summer, it’s time to get up and go! It doesn’t matter if you’re couch surfing or resort lounging — no trip is complete without the right pair of shades. To help you pinpoint your next destination (and pack the perfect shades for the trip!), we polled a few of our favorite travel bloggers about which destination they have their eye on next — plus which pair of Sunglass Warehouse shades best suit the trip!

Destination Shades

1. Reykjavik

Recommended Shades: SW Oversized Style #3439

Jennifer of Jdomb’s TravelsWe’ve been to 50 countries now, and without hesitation, we’ll tell you that Iceland is our favorite! We love the otherworldly landscapes, abundance of adventure activities like snorkeling in near-freezing water and glacier trekking, and still being able to get a bit of luxury and pampering in chic Reykjavik. Oversized sunglass like these are perfect for keeping me stylish on and off the glacier!

2. Orlando

Recommended Shades: SW Padded Sport Style #1889

Beth of The Vacation GalsOver the past couple of years, my husband and I have been really getting into destination road races. I can’t think of anything better than combining fitness with travel. Orlando is one of my favorite destinations since it brings out the kid in me. I’m hoping to run a Disney World race in the near future (post baby, as I’m due any day)! However, the one thing I’ve learned is that it’s important to have eye protection, especially in a sunny destination such as Orlando. I was excited to see that Sunglasses Warehouse offers sport options, specifically this padded sport style. Not only does it come in a selection of colors (pink and silver for me, please), but the EVA foam padded lenses makes for a snug but comfortable fit.

3. Panama City Beach

Recommended Shades: SW Retro Style #1275

Christy of Ordinary TravelerThis weekend, I’m headed to PCB, Florida for the first time. Based on the photos of Shell Island and the crystal-clear water, I’m pretty sure I’ll fall in love with this destination. I would choose these red retro style sunglasses for this trip because they would look great in photos with the blue water in the background.

4. Riviera Maya

Recommended Shades: SW Oversized Style 1702

Corinne of Have Baby Will TravelThese oversized sunglasses were “the perfect fit” for our recent vacation to Riviera Maya, in Mexico. Riviera Maya is one of our favorite spots for a family vacation, since it’s a perfect mix of beach and culture — plus, the fabulous and kid-friendly Mexican food is a bonus. I like these celebrity-inspired frames because on a beach vacation with my family, it’s one of the few ways I feel I can add a pinch of glamour to my look. I’m usually spending my days in a sandy swimsuit and cover-up, with my hair a beachy mess, so these somewhat glamorous shades make me feel like I mean to look that way!

5. Waikiki

Recommended Shades: SW Bi-Focal Style #55440

Kara of The Vacation GalsI love the look of these slightly oversized tortoiseshell frames for vacationing in one of my favorite tropical spots in the world: Hawaii. I’m not getting any younger(!), and I’m finding myself squinting more and more when I’m looking at my phone or restaurant menus. With these bi-focal shades, I can read in comfort on a chaise lounge at the beach, and I’ll be able to better read small print on my phone’s map app as I’m sightseeing on Kauai or shopping in the streets Waikiki.

6. Maui

Recommended Shades: SW Polarized Retro Style #540432

Jennifer of The Vacation GalsMaui in Hawaii is the place I cannot WAIT to show off my retro tortoise frames. I’ll be staying on Wailea Beach. On this stretch of Maui, Hawaiian Sea Turtles love sitting in the sun and soaking up those warm golden rays as much as all of the island’s human visitors do. The sunglasses will protect my eyes, and who knows? Maybe the tortoiseshell pattern will confuse those large, lazy, sun basking turtles into thinking I’m one of their land-based cousins.

7. Scandinavia

Recommended Shades: SW Aviator Style #490

Marie of EuroTrip TipsI gotta admit that I’m a big fan of Northern Europe (Germany, Scandinavia, UK, etc.) — I like the efficiency, the architecture, and even the weather! I would narrow down my favorite place to Scandinavia, a mix of Swedish chic, Norwegian outdoors, and Danish city vibes. Forward-thinking, outstandingly beautiful, incredibly stylish (and not to mention historic Vikings and delicious food) … that’s Scandinavia for me!

8. Boracay

Recommended Shades: SW Mirrored Retro Style #1645

Brendan of Bren On The RoadBoracay in The Philippines, because it’s a busy tropical island with a charming, laidback vibe. I’d recommend rocking a pair of white wayfarers — perfect for looking stylish on the most gorgeous white sand beach in the world.

9. Bwindi National Park, Uganda

Recommended Shades: SW Retro Aviator Style #1904

Brendan of Bren On The Road: Visit Bwindi National Park in Uganda; it’s home to incredible mountain gorillas, and you’ll find yourself standing only a few footsteps away from them. Arm yourself with a vintage pair of aviators for this one — you’ll look and feel like one of those classic safari rangers. Plus, those gorillas won’t see the fear in your eyes when they stare straight at you!

10. Sossusvlei

Recommended Shades: SW Polarized Retro Style #540432

Brendan of Brendan’s AdventuresGet yourself to Sossusvlei, Namibia. I’ve been to deserts on four different continents, and the red sands of these dunes are by far the most majestic. Be sure to pack yourself a pair of polarized sunnies to truly bring out the red of the earth and the blue of the sky. Personally, I’d rock these polarized retro shades, as they’ll keep your eyes protected, keep the colors popping, and have you looking suave all the while.

11. Antarctica

Recommended Shades: SW Padded Sport Style #4230

Nellie of WildJunketAntarctica is definitely the top travel destination for me as there’s nowhere else quite like it in the world. Here at the southernmost tip of the world, icebergs stand taller than skyscrapers, glaciers run for miles, and whales, seals and penguins roam freely. When the midnight sun is out, protect your eyes with a pair of athletic sunglasses like these – sometimes the snow sparkles and dazzles so much it can blind you!

So, which destination is next on your bucket list? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter, and share pics of your trip with @SunglassWarehouse on Instagram!

Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Summer Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists.

Meet Ashley, the face behind the blog Twenties Girl Style. We took a minute to ask Ashley a few questions about all things personal style as we kickoff our Bold & Bright edition of the Summer Lookbook. Get to know Ashley below and sneak a peek at her blog, where she’s always experimenting with playful new styles, trends, and clothing combinations.

Diggin’ her bold and bright shades? Snag a pair of our Mirrored Aviator Style #9950 in your favorite color before they’re gone!

Twenties Girl Style: Bold & Bright Shades

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with? 

Ashley: I would have to say Trendsetter meets Indie Artist. I love a unique pair of sunglasses that nobody has, but also love a great pair in a classic shape (hello wayfarer style)!

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Ashley: A big floppy hat to shade my face from the sun.

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Ashley: Audrey Hepburn, of course! She was beautiful and classy with amazing style!

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Ashley: Not wearing what you love or not dressing for yourself.

Twenties Girl Style

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

Ashley: “Wear what you love,” is something my mom told me years ago that has always stuck with me! When I was a lot younger, I was always drawn to interesting clothing choices, but was always scared to commit to buying them for fear of never wearing them (because of what other people might say). My mom was always the one to tell me to buy it and wear it if I love it because that’s really all that matters. That is definitely something I live by today. No matter the trend, style, or if it’s outdated … if I love it, I’m wearing it!

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Ashley: Online shopping! It’s the world’s biggest mall at your fingertips!

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite SunglassWarehouse.com shades?

Ashley: I love a good pair of oversized sunnies! The Round Retro Style #1598 are a perfect pair of classic oversized sunglasses, but if you want to spice things up a bit, the Two-Toned Round Style #7140 with the faded frames are so fun! I also love a pair of heart-shaped shades (like the Folding Heart Style #1120) that are so on trend this summer!

We’d like to send a huge thank you to Ashley for answering our questions! Don’t forget to show her blog some love. :) #DareToWear

The Lens: Snapshot Spotlight

Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Summer Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists. 

Meet Elaine, the blogger behind Romantic Fawn who loves to put together fun, dreamy fashion combinations. Read more about Elaine’s unique style and the sunglasses she’s craving in our interview below! In love with her patriotic shades? Grab your own pair of our SW American Flag Style #2058 and celebrate Independence Day in style.

Sunglass Warehouse 2014 Summer Lookbook: Elaine from Romantic Fawn

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be? 

Elaine: I’d bring a skort because it’s very versatile! I rarely wear pants — mostly because I feel like they’re boring. In a skort, you could run and jump around and still look cute and girly!

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Elaine: I’d have lunch with Sofia Coppola! I’m a huge fan of her films, and she’s super intelligent. I can imagine her talking for hours about different films and books and philosophies, and I would be sitting there super starstruck trying to soak up all the knowledge.

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Elaine: For some reason, I really can’t find myself liking those chunky sandals that are popular these days. They just seem uncomfortable and awkward!

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

Elaine: The best advice I’ve ever received was from my aunt, when she told me to get personal with my style. She said that fashion is art, and artists got personal and deep with their work and that’s why people looked up to them. Most of my style is inspired by my nostalgia for childhood, so that’s why I dress really girly and childlike. Trends are so short-lived, there’s no point in trying to be a part of something that everybody just pretends to like. People will like and appreciate your unique, personal style!

Elaine from Romantic Fawn

If you had a personal theme song, what would it be?

Elaine: My personal theme song would be Objects In Space by La Dispute. There’s not really a reason why, but I just love listening to it! La Dispute is one of my favorite bands.

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Elaine: My current Internet addiction is Polyvore! I’ve been using it for almost 4 years, and I’m still obsessed with it. It’s so interesting to see the sense of community — you meet and talk to so many new people. Everyone has different opinions and ideas, and it’s cool to hear the contrast. Everyone also has their own unique style, and it’s so much fun creating new looks.

What are your typical Independence Day festivities?

Elaine: On the Fourth of July, my friends and I have this annual pool party and a barbecue, but we don’t usually invite a lot of people because we want to keep it special. In the nighttime, my whole neighborhood meets at the local park and lays out blankets and foldable chairs to see the fireworks — it’s so much fun!

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with and why? (Great Adventurer, Trendsetter, Party Rocker, Indie Artist, or Superfan)

Elaine: I’d identify myself with Indie Artist, because I love love love making art, and independent music is my fave. You don’t know how much this sunglass style accurately describes me, haha.

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite Sunglass Warehouse shades?

Elaine: People usually think it’s strange, but I’m crushing on heart-shaped and circle-shaped glasses so much! The Oversized Round #244s and Celebrity Heart Style #1971s are adorable!

Thank you, Elaine, for spending time answering our questions and getting to know us. We love your fun patriotic style!

Whether you prefer retro, modern, or straight up practical, there’s a story behind how you style your shades. Join us as we look behind the lens at the bloggers who styled and starred in our 2014 Summer Lookbook. From shades they can’t leave the house without to the trends they’re trying to forget, get to know our featured stylists. 

Meet Kelvin: a husband, father, and artist from South Carolina who blogs about his daily style creations on Notoriously Dapper. Check out Kelvin’s patriotic style and read his advice on trends and fashion below! Like his shades? Snag your own patriotic sunglasses here.

Sunglass Warehouse 2014 Summer Lookbook: Kelvin from Notoriously Dapper

If you had to choose one item from your closet to take with you on a deserted island, what would it be?

Kelvin: I would take my Cole Haan LunarGrand shoes! They are very comfortable, and since I would be doing a lot of walking and running on the island, I would want the stylish comfort those bad boys offer.

If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present), who would it be and why?

Kelvin: I would have lunch with Andy Warhol! Teaching his work as an art teacher, I have grown to love his personality. I think we would share a great artistic insight on the world we live in now. It may sound crazy, but I often think we share the same genius at some levels. I’m not going to go on an artistic rant saying I’m the modern day Warhol, but he would be an amazing person to chat with in an Amsterdam coffee shop.

What would you consider the ultimate male fashion fail?

Kelvin: I consider cargo shorts an ultimate male fashion fail. Personally, I think if you try too hard to be something or someone you’re not, you have fashionably failed. My advice to all men is to be yourself and wear what makes you feel 100% confident. Everyone loves a confident person, so own who you are!

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

Kelvin: My dad always said, “As long as you truly love yourself, it doesn’t matter what you wear.” My parents always taught me to be proud of who I am, so I try to show that through my personal style. If you care about something, you take good care of it, so why not take care of yourself?

Kelvin from Notoriously Dapper

If you had a personal theme song, what would it be?

Kelvin: My personal theme song would be Happy by Pharrell Williams. I think the song embodies what I feel 95% of the time!

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Kelvin: My current Internet addiction is my Instagram. I just love the Instagram community —  it’s safe, mostly spam free, and filled with love.

What are your typical Independence Day festivities?

Kelvin: Grilling food, hanging out with my family, drinking beer, talking about the upcoming football season, and laughing a lot.

What sunglass style personality do you best identify with and why? (Great Adventurer, Trendsetter, Party Rocker, Indie Artist, or Superfan)

Kelvin: I would say that I’m a cross between Trendsetter and Indie Artist because I love big sunglass frames that are unique to an individual style.

And since you have an eye for fashion — what are some of your favorite Sunglass Warehouse shades?

Kelvin: I love the Oversized Retro Style #1108 and all the aviators! Mirrored aviators are by far a show-stopping staple for this spring and summer. Go get some now!

We want to send a big thank you to Kelvin for taking the time to answer our questions! We love your #GetPatriotic style.

What would you consider the ultimate fashion fail?

Steph: Wearing any kind of fancy track suit, but especially ones that have words on the butt!

What is the best fashion advice you have ever received and from who?

If you had a personal theme song, what would it be?

Steph: Everything is Awesome from The Lego Movie!

What’s your current Internet addiction?

Steph: Makeup video tutorials — I will stay up until 1 or 2 a.m. watching them sometimes. It is a problem!

What are your typical Independence Day festivities?

Steph: A parade in the morning with the family, then boating during the day, and a barbecue that night. It’s a day full of family — this is seriously my favorite holiday!

5 hot summer sunglass styles

1. Nature-Inspired

Nature Inspired Shades

SW Bamboo Retro Style #1421

A “Back to Nature” theme has taken the eyewear world by storm this summer! Wood-look sunglasses made from recycled plastic or natural materials are hot this season. We love the earthy look of these wayfarer style sunglasses, which have genuine bamboo temples and a cool, retro shape that will flatter all face shapes.

2. Bold Colors

Bold Colored Shades

SW Retro Style #1124

Don’t shy away from color this summer! Although your typical black, tortoiseshell, and metal tones are still popular, vibrant frames are stealing the spotlight. This modified cat eye shape pictured above looks girly and fun in a bold hue. Check out how our favorite bloggers are rocking bold colors in their wardrobes here.

3. ’70s-Inspired Aviators

'70s-Inspired Aviators

SW Aviator Style #2015

Aviator sunglasses were all over this summer’s designer runways and are a hot item for Hollywood celebs. Trending now are retro-inspired aviators from the ’70s, which have exaggerated brow bars, oversized lenses, and come in both plastic and metal styles. Channel Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and the rest of the cast of American Hustle for more style inspiration.

4. Colorful Mirrors

Colorful Mirrored Shades

SW Mirrored Retro Style #8839

Colorful, mirrored lenses instantly up the cool factor of your shades. Make a splash this summer in mirrored lenses that come in a rainbow of color choices. Our pick is this retro-inspired browline style with blue-green lenses, which look great on all hair colors and skin tones. (Seriously, they look good on everybody.)

5. Oversized Shapes

Oversized Sunglasses

SW Round Style #4791

Whether round, shield, or geometric, funky oversized shapes are making a statement this summer! We’re big fans of these retro round-shaped sunglasses. The keyhole bridge, which seems to be all the rage lately, sets these shades apart.

Chelsea of She Said He Said – Fashion Blog

She Said He Said - Fashion Blog

Neon and lace? Yes please. Chelsea complements her girly yet edgy style with a pair of round retro-inspired round frames. We love the metal detail for just a hint of bling. Snag these shades here!

 

Elise of WTFab

The right pastel accessories can lighten up darker colors for spring. Elise looks effortlessly chic in our retro style shades that are a cross between a clubmaster style and cat eye frame shape.

 

Hayley of Daily Dose of Darling

We’re seeing coral everywhere this spring — and we don’t hate it. Accessorize with pops of coral to pull together a printed dress like Haley or to spice up a t-shirt and jeans. Shop our fave coral clubmaster style frames here.

 

Lynne of Lynne Gabriel

Lynne of Lynne Gabriel

It doesn’t get much more girly-chic than this look by Lynne Gabriel. Statement necklace, chambray shirt (with polka dots!), and a pair of pink pastel sunnies are the perfect style combination for brunch with the gals or shopping around town.

 

Megan of Manicures & Merlot

Megan looks ready for a night out on the town in a pair of oversized round shades, black heels, and a flowy metallic crop top. Accessorize with a pop of pink lipstick — and sunglasses so bold you don’t need anything else!

 

Melissa of Missy on Madison

Missy on Madison

It’s all in the details with these oversized tortoiseshell shades, perfect for adding some style to your day at the beach. Leave the focus on your trendy shades by keeping the rest of your outfit simple (or pair with cool pastels and bright accessories like Melissa). Shop for her sunglasses here!
