The leading cause of sunglasses loss in the United States is leaving them on a brunch table after you've vignetted the heck out of them. Does it suck? Yes. Does it suck even more if they were Céline and your traitorous butt sat on them? Yes. Because going without sunglasses in the summer is not an option (squinting can lead to crow's feet!), we've rounded up 14 inexpensive-yet-stylish frames you can afford to misplace.
Most sunglasses trends come and go, but the cat-eye style will always be a classic. This season, the frames are smaller and better than ever.
Nope, that's not the sky reflected in these shades. The lenses are that blue, and with the contrasting marble print, this pair reminds me of Greece. Time for vacation, guys?
Hesitant to try red or pink specs? Ease into colored frames with a pair of navy sunglasses. It's more striking than black, yet still versatile enough to match any outfit.
If you keep up with the Kardashians, you know that Khloé's signature sunglass style is ski goggle–inspired. Oversize shades > than tiny frames? With this pair, yes.
This pair of rimless sunglasses is the definition of trendy. And even though the lenses are colored, it's a cool tone, so you don't have to worry about clashing.

I love the marble design on this pair of dramatic cat-eye frames. The neutral hue makes it easy for dressing up or down. I prefer the latter, so I'll wear the sunglasses with jeans and a white tee for that everyday stylish look.
