Sunglasses are not only stylish, but they also protect your eyes and the sensitive skin around your eyes from UV rays and premature aging. These added benefits are reasons alone to wear protective eyewear, but sunglasses can complete an outfit; oversized sunglasses are glamorous, wayfarers are relaxed, and cat eyes are dramatic. Various shapes and fits can say a lot about your personal style. Here are some local boutiques that sell eyewear and will help you find whatever type fits your face and preferred aesthetic.
