Trend Alert: Sunglasses-Inspired Jewelry
This summer staple is enjoying newfound attention from designers who have created fun new accessories inspired by shades. Our favorite so far are from A’N’D, which sells Wrist Shade Bracelets, bangles cut from sunglass lenses. Their Grey Neckshade Necklace (above), also features nearly a dozen charms which look like broken shades. (Log on to Creature Comforts to find these pieces on sale right now.) While you’re at it, log on to Odd and Even NYC, which sells amazing vintage-inspired shades by designer Samantha Smikle. Her Double Chain Faced Shades, $20, are connected to a gold chain link, which means you can wear them as a necklace or in the traditional style of over your eyes to protect your peepers from the sun. So old school!
