Like Angelina Jolie [1] and Brad Pitt [2] or Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, some things just work better in pairs . . . including stylish sunglasses matched up with complementing lipsticks. Our go-to looks this Summer are all about standout shades paired with coordinating lipstick. Just keep scrolling for our top combinations (modeled by real women!).

These bold blue Stella McCartney cat-eye shades [3] ($225) feel so summery. Go all the way by pairing them with a nearly neon lipstick like Illamasqua in Luster [4] ($28).

These chic and subtle Chanel sunglasses [5] ($650) are even classier when you notice there's a rim of pearls placed behind the upper frame. For such a timeless look, Sonia Kashuk's Red Orange lip color [6] ($10) is the way to go.

There's absolutely nothing subtle about these black-and-white Nasty Gal frames (similar style: Nasty Gal CRAP Eyewear Diamond Brunch Shades [7], $62). A nude lip would be too demure, but a hot pink or bold red might feel too over the top. Meet in the middle with a matte coral like Givenchy Le Rouge in Croisière Coral (similar style: Givenchy Le Rouge in Corail Décolleté [8], $36).

Big frames don't have to be overwhelming. Shop for a pair that isn't wider than your face for a flattering fit. The cool tones in these BCBG ombré sunglasses (similar style: BCBG Axazria 56mm Sunglasses [9], $109) pair perfectly with a bright purple lipstick such as MAC's Midnight Mambo [10] ($65).

Love brightly colored sunglasses but afraid to go all the way? Try a vivid hue on just the upper rim like on this red-and-black pair from Coach (similar styles: Coach sunglasses [11]). To play off the colored frames, we paired the look with a matching lipstick: Tom Ford's Wild Ginger [12] ($49).

Not for the faint of heart, this geometric Miu Miu option is covered in petal-pink suede (similar style: Miu Miu 'Culte Collection' 57 mm Geometric Sunglasses [13], $340). To balance the color, texture, and shape, go for a neutral lip color like BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Be Free [14] ($18).

If you're a veteran of the pointed cat eye, then take things one step further with these floral frames from Kate Spade Saturday [15] ($70). We amped up the bold look with Bite Lipstick in Coral [16] ($24).

If round frames never look quite right on you, then try a relaxed rectangle like Warby Parker's Thatcher in Walnut Tortoise [17] ($95). The neutral palette calls for a nude lip, so we went with By Terry Sheer Rouge in Nudissimo [18] ($35).

Retro round frames in a camel shade, like on this Burberry pair [19] ($200), go best with a classic lipstick. We coupled the chic style with Chanel Rouge Coco in Amant [20] ($35).

The wayfarer [21] ($175) gets done over time and time again, and Tory Burch updated the silhouette with a bright orange print. Not to compete with the graphic frames, we paired them with Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Juicy Melons [22] ($22), a soft coral lipstick.

We're all about mirrored sunglasses, especially with cool clear legs and frames like on this pair [23] ($153) from celeb-favorite Westward Leaning. The blue in the reflective lenses looks best with a contrasting lip color like MAC Neon Orange lipstick [24] ($16).

If trendy frames aren't quite your thing, then wire rims like on this DKNY pair [25] ($99) are a timeless choice. The rosy, satiny Nars Lipstick in Tolede [26] ($26) is just as classic.
