Best Sunglasses for Summer 2012

As the weather shows it's sunny side up , we girls fill up our hold-alls with sun block and sun glasses right ? So which ones to lust after this season?
Which shapes and styles to splurge on ? Should you be spotted with a neon acetate frame or a John Lennon teshade on that pretty face? 

Don't fret ! Heiress is here for the rescue !  

TREND : The round frame a.k.a Teashades

Remember the 60s? Try and guide your mind to visualize John Lennon, Ozzy Osbourne... yes the two can be used in the same sentence , sitting next to eachother because of the shape of sunglasses they wore !

Seems the teashades are back in Vogue ! Notice below Mary Kate Olsen sporting one ! Also the catwalks were filled with it - Marni , Chanel , Rrdem , Viktor and Rolf - you name it and they have an array of round sunglasses to leave you spoilt for choice. Heiress recommends an acetate frame instead of the traditional metal. The color can range from pastels to neon directly proportional to the wearer's strength of heart !

TREND : Gradient Lens

Noticed the Marni Spring summer Picture above? It serves as the right introduction to the next trend - Gradient lens ! Our favorite is the Chanel piece below seen on Freja Beha Erichson. 

Trend : Contrast frame

Up next is a very exciting trend ! Very fresh and wearable ! Color blocking has been around for a while in apparel but pursuing the same in sunglasses seems interesting an alluring !

TREND : Cat Eye

Second trend this season proving that fashion recycles itself ! The shape was first made popular by Marilyn Monroe , Audrey Hepburn and the like in the 50s and in 2012 designers are reviving it again , with Missoni , Proenza Schouler , Tory Burch - everyone jumping on to the bandwagon.

And you thought sunglasses were just a defense mechanism!
