Spring 2013 Shopping: 10 Hot High Fashion Sunglasses

When it comes to sunglasses, there are usually two camps of stylistas: those who don’t spend much on shades because they’ll lose them or sit on them, or those who are willing to splurge and hold onto their finds for years.
This roundup is moreso for the latter group; the ladies and gents who don’t mind investing a bit in distinctive, look-at-me shapes, gilded embellishments, and gradient lenses. We’re focusing on high fashion sunglasses (not the classic Ray-Bans)–styles beloved by a few of our favorite celebs, and available to purchase just in time for bright rays and beach excursions:
