These Retro-Inspired Sunnies Are the Local Celebs' New Summer Must-Have Très chic on the beach!

Summer is right around the corner, and if you're already on the hunt for cute outfits and accessories to wear to the beach, then head over to Instagram for inspiration! One of the most popular ones we've spotted online? Retro cat-eye sunnies.

But don't expect to see oversized pairs on the beach, though. For a modern take on the trend, reach for ones that come with teeny-tiny lenses and pointy edges. Still confused? Below, let these celebrities demonstrate how a pair of sunglasses can serve beyond its UV-shielding function, and is ultimately the only statement accessory you'll need this summer.
