As spring continues on into summer, odds are good you’ll be attending some special occasions in the great outdoors. Rather than silently squint into the sun, we recommend finding the perfect pair of sunglasses to complement your fancy attire.

If you’re going with classic black, like the Leave a Light on Black Dress, we recommend trying something clear or metallic to keep it chic while still adding some flair. The Quay Asha Gold Sunglasses accomplish this perfectly!

Going with a brighter hue? We paired the Colette White and Black Striped Sunglasses with the LULUS Exclusive Notch Landing Coral Pink Strapless Dress to find a balance between bright and subdued. The stripes on these sunglasses are a great addition to any frock that’s a solid color!

You can’t go wrong with neutral tones! The Feline Rust Brown Sunglasses have a great shape and a gorgeous shade of brown that will work for just about any dress. We love the way they look with the LULUS Exlcusive Be So Bow-ld Cutout Blue Dress!
