Get Sunglass Savvy!

One of the most essential items to your summer wardrobe is the perfect pair of sunglasses. The right frames can definitely add a little touch of sass or sophistication to any outfit. This Spring Fashion Forward has noticed a definite shift from last season's uniform oversized look to a wider variety of funky and multi-colored frames. 




With a season of music festivals, picnics, and trips to the beach ahead of us, use your sunglasses to define you this season! We especially loved these heart shaped frames shown in Vogue's online highlight of Coachella outfits. They remind us of those great plastic frames we wore in our 80's childhoods. Don't be restricted by shape, color, or pattern. Go nuts!




The most important thing when looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses, however, is finding the right frames to suit your face, which can sometimes be a daunting task. We found this great fit guide on Yahoo that gives a few tips on finding the best shape for most face types. Check it out if you need a little help.




Fashion Forward's favorite place to find awesome unique frames is Sharks Vintage on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley. With a huge case full of quirky vintage eyewear, it's a great place to find retro shades and other cute summer finds.
