The sun's out, the pool's open: summer is here Fashionistas/os. Besides stocking up on sunscreen, maxi dresses, and jean shorts, there is one essential on every Fashionistas/os list: sunglasses.

Sunglasses are a very personal thing. Perhaps more than any accessory, they say a lot about your personality and style. For example, take a look at this Fashionista. Her sunnies are oversized, dramatic, and yet playful with their purple tint. Pulling back and looking the rest of her ensemble, it is clear that her glasses echo her free spirit and feminine, bohemian vibe. It's very rad yet refined.

On trend sunglasses come in all price points, which is great news for the CollegeFashionista. Our picks for this summer are this pair by ASOS and this pair by House of Harlow. What are your favorites? Tweet us a picture of your sunnies to @CFashionista! 

Spotted: Prada's spring 2012 runway show featured sunglasses that were one part art, one part whimsical, and two parts totally awesome. Check out our favorite from the collection here.
