Every Fashionsista loves a good pair of sunglasses. Whether it’s for function, emulating a classic incognito-celebrity look or just plain style, there is always an excuse to don this summer essential. Although there is always the fallback choice of aviators and wayfarers, this Fashionista chose a bolder frame, reminiscent of the classic 1950s cat eye, while running some late-afternoon errands. Her outfit consists of solely cool colors which is a nice alternative to all the bright pops of spring colors, while her lilac jeans keep the look on-trend. A pair of tortoise shell sunglasses with modern twist on a retro shape make the perfect, effortless accessory to complement her laid-back look.

CF: Where are your favorite places to shop?
AC: My favorite places to shop are the stores in Georgetown considering I pretty much take daily solo trips there.
CF: What is your favorite spring accessory?
AC: My sunglasses! I love the instant glamour that sunglasses can add to any look.
CF: How do you decide what shape sunglasses to wear?
AC: When picking sunglasses, make sure you take into consideration which frames would look best on you. Pay attention to your face shape as well as your coloring to determine what color frames will suit your face.
How To: Don’t be shy to venture to the other side of the color spectrum. Choosing items that are different shades of colors that are in the same family is a good way to keep the outfit fun and balanced. Play up pastel jeans with a darker hued top. Add T-strap sandals and a paler bag, which simultaneously makes a statement while remaining a more subdued aspect of the outfit. Choose a pair of sunglasses to be a key focus point in the outfit. To try the cat eye look like this Fashionista, opt for a more modern approach to the frame, as the true cat eye can be difficult to pull off.
