Top 10 Cheapo Sunglasses for an On-Trend Summer

    The thing about trends is that they change every year…and often every season! That’s why it’s best to invest in wardrobe staples, but not spend a lot when it comes to trendier pieces. Sunglasses are a great example of where to be thrifty. You can find TONS of cheap sunglasses for $3 to $15 at your local Forever 21 or Target that are super trendy and cute. You may want to ditch them by next summer, but you won’t have to feel bad if you didn’t break the bank buying them. (If you’re looking to invest in some classic shades, we’d suggest saving those pennies for some Ray-Bans.)

    To help you in your search for summer sunglasses (those racks can be overwhelming!), check out our top 10 picks from Forever 21. They’re easy to order online and return, though you likely have a store near you. Once you’ve found a pair you think you love, you can check the store’s site for other favorites and make a list of what you like. Then, when you go to the store to try them on, you can be focused and ready and avoid getting swallowed whole by piles of sunglasses!

    Here are our top ten picks:

    1. My favorite pair was a white pair with some little fake jewels on the sides and some in the top corners of the frames, but I was wave jumping with them on and they were knocked off into the water. So, I got a new pair at a little shop in North Carolina that are dark and have a floral design that I just love!
