Young, hip, fun and full of color…wait, I’m talking about the sunglasses, not the starlet!  Okay, Leighton Meester orange sunglasses are right on trend with a bright hue and a great shape. They cover the full eye and have a really nice gradient that keep them feeling light.  What about that slight orange highlighting to Meester’s hair? Was that to match the sunglasses or are the sunglasses meant to match her hair?

These gorgeous glasses are from Yves Saint Laurent and are sleek and bright.  The color is just right, with a great orange color that is not too bright not too muted. It is a great color that is very flattering to many different skin tones.  The two silver bands on the arms add a little pop of sparkle and help dress up these frames.  YSL is a brand you can depend on for trendy sunglasses that are still accessible.  You can feel like your own television star and step out looking just like Leighton Meester, orange sunglasses and all.

Known for his penchant for keeping his peeps under wraps, Bruno Mars sunglasses are certainly part of his signature ‘look’.  Almost never without them or at least eyeglasses, he usually sticks to a basic shape and look.  That is certainly one of the options…to stick with a particular look and make it your own, but it’s also lots of fun to try different shapes with different looks.

How To Select Designer Sunglasses – Video

Here is a great video that will teach you how to select designer sunglasses for your face shape.  Yes, I must warn you that it’s a little bit of a long video at just about 18 minutes – but the guy really does go over some great information.  If you ever wondered what kind of case or documentation comes with a high quality pair of sunglasses, you will get a chance to see some of the wonderful cases and extras that are often part of the package when you select sunglasses from different designers.

He also explains how some designers name their sunglasses so that you can tell which ones are meant for women and which are meant for men. Sometimes it’s hard to tell, right? The information also encompasses what features you might want to look for and what to be aware of with different design shapes.

How To Select Designer Sunglasses

You can really tell he loves sunglasses and has a passion for quality.  The sunglasses he shows and talks about do have a pretty similar shape, but it was still interesting to see how even subtle design shape differences could end up looking really different on him.  There were several designs that could be used to accent or take away from different face features and that was fun to see as well.  Overall, while the video could have been a little more succinct, he did give a good effort at explaining how to select designer sunglasses and what to look for if you want different looks.

The Alexander McQueen eyewear collection is the perfect way to integrate a truly dynamic essence of high fashion in to your wardrobe. (More here)

The look of Alexander McQueen – dark glamor, comes from an interesting place. What that is, exactly, I can only begin to imagine. In the world of design and high fashion, there has to be a balance of light and dark, fun and serious.  To me, graceful sunglasses that sport a small skull at the temple is exactly that kind of balance.  The flirty-ness of a pink pair of sunglasses that also keep to a more severe outline is again, in perfect balance. However it’s approached, this balance is something that is McQueen has seemingly mastered.  And for that, we are very grateful.
