When it comes to summer style, I want my outfits to be easy, comfortable, and yet timeless. When I’m hot, I really don’t have the patience for fussy or super trendy items. I’m not super plain but I rely on basics. One part of my summer wardrobe that I do refresh every year are my sunglasses. I keep my favorite pair from the year before, but it’s always fun to add a little something new to the mix. A fun, colorful set of sunnies are the perfect counterpoint to my classic jean shorts, olive green tee, and Birkenstocks. Since I like to buy a new pair (or two) every year, I’m always on the hunt for a bargain. This year, I’ve rounded up 11 pairs of chic statement sunglasses for less than $40. Check out the slideshow to see the colors, shapes, and add-on features I’m loving this summer.
