Arched Metal Mix Sunglasses, $16 at Urban Outfitters

I refuse to spend over $20 on sunglasses for a couple reasons. There are the usual easy-to-break and easy-to-lose arguments, but also, I tend to put my wardrobe budget into shoes and basics that will last me at least a couple seasons and then rely on accessories to update my mainstays. These Urban Outfitters sunnies are perfect because they're low-commitment ($16!) and trendy in a way that fits with the summer clothes I already own. The clear bridge and light colored frames are nice touches, and since they're a fraction of the cost of similar Karen Walker sunnies, it's cool with me if I retire them by next spring.
