Shady Lady: 40 Swanky Sunnies to Splurge On

Living in a tropical country means never really escaping from the sun's brightness--even during the rainy season!--so protect those peepers with these fashionable shades. By Patricia Dayacap

The recent storm and the rains it brought with it give us the sense that summer's fast approaching its deadline. But hey, a little dreary weather never stopped us stylish ladies from accessorizing with a gorgeous pair of sunglasses. And when the sun does come out, we'd rather protect our peepers in a flattering way—after all, the "squinting your eyes to avert the sun's glare" look never did suit anyone.

While less expensive sunglasses are fun to experiment with, we think every woman should consider spending a little more on a special pair. Here at FN, we love making things easier for our readers, so we've come up with a selection of stylish and well-crafted sunglasses from Diesel, Bottega Veneta, Kenneth Cole, Salvatore Ferragamo, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs. Pick a pair from our gallery, and we'll see you on the (hopefully) sunny side of the street.
