Market Editor Tammy Palmer dishes on the hottest style of sunglasses for summer.


Ask A Fashion Editor

YOU ASKED: What is the hottest style of sunglasses this season?
FASHION EDITOR: Pack your tote with an array of sunworthy shades. Sleek and sexy aviators seem to never go out of style—they’re a classic. Stick with gold rimmed like the ones at Michael Kors—they flatter a myriad of skin tones plus they work with the cool safari/tribal pieces in your closet. Large seventies-inspired oversize frames made a comeback—this time around choose a colorful frame such as red, orange or yellow or stick to a pretty neutral as seen at Matthew Williamson. Wear them with your floaty floral dresses or on the weekends to add zip to your jeans and tee routine. Sleek lightweight rimless shades were a hit this season—Christopher Bailey for Burberry Prorsum showed a dramatic version for spring—they work beautifully with the tough chic trend. Opt for a clear color for day to punch up your light neutrals. Tammy Palmer
