As we've previously reported, shield sunglasses are the emerging trend we've got our eyes on. Last year's micro sunnies are making way for bigger, bolder shapes!
Some of the shield sunglasses that have graced previous runway shows featured otherwordly designs and colors so bright, they're hotter than the sun. We realize that such a look doesn't appeal to those with simple style sensibilities, but we're here to tell you this: There's a pair of shield sunglasses out there for anyone.
