Continuing our preparation for long days in the sun, we present to you another week of fabulous designer sunglasses. This week, our friend Vanessa has chosen a pair of CHANEL 5249 sunglasses in color 714/S5, part of the new 2013 collection from the French fashion house. See how happy she looks? That’s how we like to see each and every one of you before you walk out the door! Doesn’t the tortoise color complement her so well? The square-shaped lenses flatter, too, adding angles to create a balanced look.This glamorous pair of acetate CHANEL sunglasses also features gradient brown lenses and a beautiful metal camellia on each temple, both sides accented with a tiny CC logo on one of the camellia’s petals. While we like that the signature shows our devotion to art and fashion, the logo is subtle enough to give just a hint towards our predilection for the finer frames in life.The 5249 is available in multiple shades to suit your sartorial needs this season – whether you want a teal frame to bring a pop of color to your summer look or a neutral black for a glamorous accessory enviable by any celeb. This style is also offered in a rich blue and deep red. We think the latter two are great choices to pull together a fabulous look for July 4th. Pair with a crisp white blazer and some cutoff jean shorts and you’ll be shining bright this Independence Day.
