When it comes to sunglasses, most of us have a signature look.  Whether it’s a classic pair of aviators, a hip wayfarer, or an oversized Jackie O style, shades are one area of fashion where risk-taking isn’t always applauded.

However, we’ve been noticing that lately, trend-setting designers such as Karen Walker and Stella McCartney, as well as fashion-forward gals have ditched the super-dark frames in favor of cool pastel styles. The shapes are varied—round, cat-eye, square, interesting hexagonal frames—and the shades are sweet (tangerine, mint, pink, lavender.)

What’s so enticing about pastel sunglasses is the fact they instantly lend any outfit a refreshingly modern feel. Think you can’t pull it off? Start small with a simple round peach or baby pink matte acetate frame. For gals who want jump head-first into the trend, lavender and sky-blue frames are the way to go.

Click through the gallery above to shop 10 pairs of pastel sunglasses that’ll look just as chic with a fall-ready chunky sweater or cool overcoat as they will right now!
