    #Trending: Mirrored Sunglasses

    Hey girl, hey, and welcome to #Trending! Every Tuesday, we’ll be curating some of our favorite looks at varying price points.

    Mirrored sunglasses. If you haven’t noticed, they’re everywhere. Celebrities are wearing them, fashion bloggers are wearing them, and I’m wearing them too.

    InStyle has deemed this trending accessory to be the extra “touch of cool to any given outfit.” Ok. OK. Let’s not push it. Do they complete a look? Sure. Do they dress it up? Um, debatable.

    Mirrored sunglasses are cool and all for their rainbow psychedelic colors, but I like them most for when I throw shade. See, New Yorkers, on a day-to-day basis, aren’t exactly the most well-mannered people. Every once in a while, you’re bound to bump, quite literally, into someone crazy. Aside from using them to ogle at my reflection or check for food remnants between my teeth, my sunnies and their mirrored disposition have saved me plenty of times from verbal altercations. An eye-roller and ‘tude-giver at heart, I’ve been known to glare, shake my head, and sigh, one too many times at the aforementioned people. Not the safest or smartest thing to do, I know, but my sass is a conversation best saved for another day. So yes, I can basically eye-roll all I want without anyone ever figuring it out. Winning.

    Should you buy a pair just to glare? See what I did there?

    For fashion and for throwing shade, they’re worth an investment. I know ASOS has one for $11.
