Come summer, outdoor activities abound—from beach days to poolside fêtes, and from music festivals to well-deserved vacations. A plethora of cool ensembles are part of the equation, and a stylish pair of sunglasses can be the finishing touch that punctuates staples like swimwear, tank tops and dresses. Always on the move, model-actress and LA influencer Julia Friedman is a pro at styling the sunny-day accessory for standout looks between meetings, events and photo shoots. We tapped her to demonstrate three incredible ways to style sunglasses like an It girl, featuring the latest on-trend offerings from Armani Exchange.
Sleek aviators are timeless and lend a bit of mystery. An oversize frame in black works for every face shape and aesthetic, from minimalist to daring. Pair them with everything from all-black looks to colorful pieces for a fashion-girl effect.
Square-shaped metal frames are retro-chic when worn with crisp whites and breezy maxis. This feminine, universal design feels extra glamorous with statement earrings and tousled waves.
An oversize silhouette is perfect for when you want to go incognito or when you're running between events. Tortoiseshell pairs seamlessly with neutral tones and brilliant shades, as the slight cat eye ensures a flattering fit. Wear with everything from athleisure to jeans.
