Sunglasses with heavy metal frames are totally in style this year. Even more popular are gold-rimmed sunnies. This kind of trend usually applies to more classic sunglasses styles, like pilot sunglasses and aviators, so you can freely pair this with even the simplest outfit. The sunnies alone would make your look more high-end.
