Eyewear trends come and go, but a pair of sleek black sunglasses never lose their cool. There’s something so indescribably effortless about a pair of classic square/rectangular shaped frames in glossy black and dark lenses to match. The subtle yet strong look contributes to their everlasting allure and timeless movie-star aesthetic.
One of the best parts of owning a pair of black shades is that you’ll never grow tired of them; better yet, they’ll likely go with any outfit. Not to mention this classic hue looks good on just about everyone—no accessory collection should be without one (or two).
There’s a lot of variety within the black sunglasses genre; each style has subtle details which makes them unique. First, you must decide on the shape; there are cat-eye, ultra-square, Wayfarer, and rounded rectangular Jackie O-styles from which to choose. Then come the design nuances like titanium accents, curved or straight bridges, wide or narrow temples, etc. It’s no wonder some we’ve seen chic black shades grace the pages of Vogue for decades, a test to their timelessness and modernity.
