Sunglasses are a must-have for summer, and a great statement pair can completely transform an otherwise simple outfit. I strongly believe that splurging on sunglasses is unnecessary, as they're so easily lost or broken, so I'm making a list of the best pairs under $100 that will seriously spice up your hot weather ensembles!
Round glasses make a statement alone, so this bright orange pair is bold and bright, and will make an all-black outfit look downright summery. These Opening Ceremony glasses are on sale for $82.50 here.
Red plastic heart-shaped sunglasses can look a little cheesy or juvenile, so opt for a subtler version of the old-school heart shape. These Topshop glasses are $36.00 here.
These mouth sunnies definitely won't be for everyone, but they're so fun! Pair with a chicer, ladylike look to give it an edge. These crazy glasses are on sale at Nastygal for $40.60 here.
Give big, round glasses a makeover with some delicate embellishments that make them look that much more special. These River Island sunglasses are $27.00 here.
The cat-eye is everywhere, so why not pick a pair that makes more of a statement? These are seriously cool from ASOS, and are only $20.00 here.
If you aren't into a colorful style, pick a unique lattice frame that's lighter than heavy plastic frames, but more fashion-forward than frameless lenses. These Nastygal shades are only $30.00 here.
I've mentioned how the round cat-eye is a ubiquitous trend this summer, and this version of the style is a little bolder, but so cute. These Nastygal glasses are only $20.00 here.
Another upgrade to basic round lenses, these Forever21 glasses are $39.00 here. The detail is delicate but makes enough of a statement if you aren't so into the crazier pairs on this card (like the next one!).
Dinosaurs definitely aren't common sunglasses adornment for anyone over the age of 10, but that doesn't mean you can't pull them off! These Spangled glasses are $66.00 from ASOS here.
If you're into white glasses, but need a louder pair to dress up your basic sundresses and jean shorts, this pair is quite bold, but would pair nicely with pulled-back hair and simple makeup. These Le Specs glasses on sale for $47.50 here.
This pair is basically two sunglasses in one! The matte black is chic and tasteful, but combines with a shiny black rim in an unexpected way. These Nastygal glasses are only $20.00 here.
When you want a more run-of-the-mill shape but are looking for a unique frame, stripes are simple enough to speak for themselves. These Zara glasses are $25.90 here.
So, like the dino shades, you probably can't wear this pair to work, but they're so cool. The frame underneath is classic, but the embellishments are anything but ordinary. These Rad and Refined glasses are $45.00 here.
