As trends come and go easily, sunglasses are always a staple in accessorizing an outfit.

Speaking of leveling up, the trend this season is to revamp classic sunglasses in a more modern approach. On one hand, you have cat eyes gone extreme, on the other, you have tiny sunglasses that appear to be taken out of The Matrix.
