20 Pairs of Sunglasses Your Favorite Celebs Can’t Stop Wearing
Celebrities know a thing or two about good eyewear: When photographers and camera flashes follow your every move, they become a basic necessity.
Victoria Beckham (rarely spotted without her dark, oversized shades) revealed during a Facebook Live chat that she wears sunglasses to “hide a multitude of sins.” She continued, “I think sunglasses are the final touch to a woman's outfit.”
While we can't speak for your sins, we can all agree with Beckham on the second part — sunglasses really do have the ability to transform an outfit and make it exponentially cooler.
Even if you’re not concerned with the fashion aspect of things, you can’t ignore the health benefits of wearing UV-protected sunglasses. Overexposure to sunlight can, over time, cause cancer or lead to vision loss. The Skin Cancer Foundation actually recommends you wear them year-round and not just when you’re hanging out on the beach in the summer.
So if you need some inspiration for your next pair of sunglasses, take a page out of your favorite celebrities’ books, where Ray-Ban seems to reign supreme. The brand’s wayfarer and aviator styles have stood the test of time and are still popular among the Hollywood crowd.
Now, check out what the stars are wearing when the sun is shining.
