Tomorrow’s the holiday we fashion-obessors have been waiting (and waiting) for all year. It’s #NationalSunglassesDay, so throw on those shades and let’s get shady.

If you haven’t been able to tell from your Instagram feed, your favorite bloggers’ Snapchat story, or from any fresh magazine in your mailbox, sunnies are the hottest—pun intended—accessory for the summer.

Colored lenses, tortoise frames, and aviators of all kinds are some of the most prominent trends right now, but the best part about sunglasses is their ability to reflect your unique style…and there’s a style to fit every face shape.

Even better? They’re totally versatile. A quality pair of sunnies can be paired with a flowing white dress, sandals, and a wide-brimmed straw hat for a casual daytime look, then easily be transitioned to rooftop dinner attire with a slip dress, your trusty leather jacket, and a killer pair of heels.

So why not celebrate National Sunglasses Day this year with a gift card for yourself? We won’t tell anyone. Pinky promise.

And, like, how could you not want to scoop up these two pairs from these stylish local merchants? Don’t fight the urge. It’s a national holiday, after all—a perfect occasion for cool gifts for yourself.

Barton Perreira

These Justice sunglasses from the Barton Perreira‘s summer 2015 collection are the perfect neutral-shade shades for brunch with the girls or a beer garden date with your guy. They’re lightweight and elegant and would fit any face shape. That’s the beauty of aviators.


Eye Spy Optical

Stylish gift cards may not seem totally appropriate for a primarily social-media holiday, but these Rigards sunglasses from Eye Spy Optical boutique in Chicago will definitely change your mind. The wide shape and dark lenses are perfect for a day at the beach followed by a bit of shopping. A must-have, right?
