Sunglasses with mirrored lenses have been getting a lot of attention as a celebrity favorite, and this trend finally seems to have trickled to the mainstream. With all the colors of the rainbow set reflectively in frames from classic aviators to funky plastics, I have no doubt they'll be on display everywhere this summer from the beach to the street.  But while an array of technicolor lenses may sound enticing, it's hard enough to find the right pair of shades for any given face shape and pulling off such a loud look just becomes that much more challenging.

I found a happy compromise at how to rock this look when I snagged a pair of Tory Burch squared cat-eye sunglasses in gold frames with matching mirrored lenses.  Gold is in no way synonymous with subtlety, but it definitely has its advantages when it come to this trend.  It's one of the few shades on the spectrum that pairs well with virtually any skin tone and hair.  Gold goes easily with any wardrobe style or color combination, so you won't have to worry about looking mismatched when the sun is slowly searing your corneas and you have just the one pair of shades stashed in your bag.  And it's gold - it's the epitome of luxe, never goes out of style, and will have you looking like a million bucks even with messy hair and sans makeup.  They don't call it the "gold standard" for nothing.
