Hi. It's Allison McNamara and welcome back to Fab Flash. One of my favorite accessories are sunglasses. So today we've rounded up to must have styles. From pastel hues to the new cut-eye that you need to get your hands on this summer. Fashion is having a pastel moment. But instead of wearing pastel pants or a jacket, try out some pastel sunglasses. They're really fun, they're playful, great for the summertime, and they're an easy way to inject some bold color. Most important thing is to find a shade that looks great on your skin tone. We love these by Karen Walker. They've got a unique shape and a really cheery, bold color. Prints are no longer just for your clothes. They wear everywhere this season, from shoes to sunglasses. You want a high fashion edge. British designer Erdem collaborated with Cutler and which is great. These sunglasses inspired by the Spring collection. They have a lacey overlay, which is just like runway and they're more subdued so they don't have a bright bold color, which makes them a little bit easier to wear. But if you want something with a little bit more color, Benjamin Eyewear has these bright sunglasses and balanced out the more traditional shade. Cat eye sunglasses styles are still around, but a fresh update is to choose a more exaggerated version. They're more retro. They have a 50's feel and they're a little bit smaller but they're more exaggerated with these wing tips. These are by Tom Ford and they're best for round face shapes. The offset frames draw attention to the top of your face making it appear less round. Clear accessories were all over the runways for spring especially Rag & Bone. They actually featured these sunglasses that I'm wearing as a necklace. They have no arms. Definitely for the sporty girl. But if you're looking for something more functional, Oliver Peoples makes this great version. Kristen Stewart is a big fan.and they're universally flattering. Round sunglasses are still right on trend. These are by Illesteva and they're matte instead of glossy, which is a little less expected. Round sunglasses look great on most face shapes, or they look best on square faces because they soften the angle. So there you have the it. The five coolest sunglasses trends for spring summer 2012. Which style do you like best? Let us know below and don't forget to come back here for more must haves. I'm Allison McNamara, and I'll see you next time of Fab Flash.
