Hot sunglasses for summer
Sunglass styles vary from oversized and cat-eye to rectangular and wrap-around. This season's hot shades include retro styles from the 1950s and 1960s that have been modernized with colors and patterns. Whether you're spending a relaxing day at the beach or need to protect your eyes from the sun's harsh rays on a busy day, these styles are a must-have for summer's top accessory. -- Meghan Giannotta
