Though the forecast still calls for April showers, summer is only a few weeks away. Summer means hanging out with friends from home, going on family vacations, and spending plenty of time in the sun.  If you’re looking for a new pair of sunglasses for the warmest months of the year, check out these three stores for a hip new set of shades

– Lenscrafters is known for its glasses and sunglasses, so it’s the perfect place to start when you’re searching for a new summer look.  Even if you don’t end up purchasing your sunglasses there, it’ll give you an idea of what style and color you’re interested in buying.  Whether it’s classic Aviators that draw your eye or something new and different like these patterned DKNY frames, it’ll be there for you to try on.  

– Urban Outfitters carries a range of sunglasses, all of which vary in price and style.  You can buy a pair of Ray Bans, but you can also find these unique sunglasses in the same place!  Here are a few other options from Urban Outfitters:

Le Specs Macarena Sunglasses

Jupiter Round Sunglasses

Sweet Like Candy Round Sunglasses

Shopbop provides shoppers with designer sunglasses in an easy-to-find online display.  With the ability to search specific brands, colors, and price points with a few clicks, you’ll be able to narrow down your sunglass selection in no time.  Whether you’re just looking for a backup pair of shades for the pool or a brand new look, Shopbop provides top quality sunglasses for your sunny summer experiences.  Here are a few stand outs:

Tory Burch Modern Sunglasses

Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized Aviator Sunglasses

Elizabeth and James Isabella Sunglasses

*If you can’t coordinate a time to hunt for sunglasses with a friend or family member, take your camera!  Looking at the frames from afar can really help with your decision
