Emerald may be the It color for 2013, but we’re still partial to red. Whether it’s on your nails, lips, or illuminating your face in a pair of designer sunglasses, this color is always a classic, and it’s versatile, too! You can go bold with a bright candy red, or be a little more dramatic with a deeper shade. Here are our five favorite red frames for the summer.
Face a Face Senso 2 sunglasses
Want to really stand out this summer? This frame is as bold as you can get, with its lips-shaped silhouette inspired by Salvador Dali’s Mae West couch. Grey lenses keep this bright frame from being too overwhelming. If you really love the season, show your love and give a big smooch with Senso.
MYKITA Leroy sunglasses
Want to go a little retro with your frame? Leroy takes the plastic aviator style of the ’80s and updates it for today with the screw-less hinge. See the silver detail on the temple? That’s the hinge made of interlocking pieces, to snap right back on if they happen to detach in an accident. Gradient lenses round out this awesome look.
Oliver Goldsmith Kolus sunglasses
If you want to tone the color down a notch but looking as chic as ever, Kolus will do the trick. The Raspberry Coulis frame has a rectangular shape but with pointed corners that add some edge to your look.
Etnia AF280 sunglasses
One of our latest arrivals, the AF280 was actually inspired by Yoko Ono’s style in the ’60s. Its solid red frame is topped with a strip of gray along the brow, surrounding gray gradient lenses for a fun but slightly subdued look.
Beausoleil S382 sunglasses
Last, but not least, is the fabulous S382, with a subtly patterned red frame that features silver dot accents on each corner. The round silhouette is oversized and dramatic, giving you that sexy divalicious look you want for a day on the beach.
