Geeky black sunglasses feel played out, so this summer look for something a little see-through. Crystal clear, pale amber or smoky gray, these transparent frames complement your mug rather than hide it. Just choose the best shape, which is usually the opposite of your features—rounded frames on a square face and vice versa. And blue- or green-tinted lenses harmonize easily with the gentle faded colors of the sunny season.
