Like Angelina Jolie  and Brad Pitt  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  ($225) feel so summery. Go all the way by pairing them with a nearly neon lipstick like Illamasqua in Luster  ($28).
These chic and subtle Chanel sunglasses  ($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  ($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 , $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 , $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 , $109) pair perfectly with a bright purple lipstick such as MAC's Midnight Mambo  ($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 ). To play off the colored frames, we paired the look with a matching lipstick: Tom Ford's Wild Ginger  ($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 , $340). To balance the color, texture, and shape, go for a neutral lip color like BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Be Free  ($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  ($70). We amped up the bold look with Bite Lipstick in Coral  ($24).
If round frames never look quite right on you, then try a relaxed rectangle like Warby Parker's Thatcher in Walnut Tortoise  ($95). The neutral palette calls for a nude lip, so we went with By Terry Sheer Rouge in Nudissimo  ($35).
Retro round frames in a camel shade, like on this Burberry pair  ($200), go best with a classic lipstick. We coupled the chic style with Chanel Rouge Coco in Amant  ($35).
The wayfarer  ($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), a soft coral lipstick.
We're all about mirrored sunglasses, especially with cool clear legs and frames like on this pair  ($153) from celeb-favorite Westward Leaning. The blue in the reflective lenses looks best with a contrasting lip color like MAC Neon Orange lipstick  ($16).
If trendy frames aren't quite your thing, then wire rims like on this DKNY pair  ($99) are a timeless choice. The rosy, satiny Nars Lipstick in Tolede  ($26) is just as classic.
