Specs Appeal: 10 Must-Have Summer Shades

Romance has no price, of course, but frame your face the right way, and you never know who will come calling.

Summer goals: a Negroni by the sea, short swim trunks, and the perfect pair of shades. For inspiration, travel back to the 1950s and early '60s, when style began to shake off the deprivations of the war, reflecting an aspirational chic epitomized by Europe’s famous resorts. Think Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who began their passionate affair on Ischia, just off Italy’s Amalfi coast, during the filming of Cleopatra. Whether you go for chunky Moscots or Warby Parker’s thinner silhouettes, a pair of these circular specs will add a touch of old Hollywood glamour to any ensemble. Romance has no price, of course, but frame your face the right way, and you never know who will come calling.
