Splurge or Save: Sunglasses

While we highly recommend investing in a quality pair of statement sunglasses to protect your peepers from the sun’s glare, we know it’s hard to spend a pretty penny on something you may well sit on and break, or leave on a bus.

So whether you just can’t afford to splash out this summer, or you’ve finally decided to make a designer commitment, we give you the low-down on high-end and highstreet sunnies. Now all we need is a little sun… Sigh.
