DIY: Pearl Embellished Sunglasses

Sunglasses can put the finishing touch on an already chic outfit, and really highlight your best features with frames that suit your face. This DIY is all about taking a simple pair of sunglasses, and transforming them into a stylish statement. We’ve used classic accents like pearls to embellish our circular frames, but you can use anything from rhinestones to studs if you’re looking for something more glamorous or edgy.

Summer in Shades Inspiration

Sunglasses are on of our most beloved accessories for spring and summer, and we usually can’t wait to start wearing them during the dark and dreary days of winter. Sunglasses can instantly make you look polished and put-together. Just throw on a pair of statement sunnies, a light coat of coral lipstick, and you’re ready to face the day!
Black Prada SunglassesWe love the unique curly shape of the arms. Look for unique details like that on the sides of your sunglasses, if you prefer a more basic frame shape.

Stylish Shades

Sometimes your outfit may be missing one key element. If it’s not a bag or the shoes, it may very well be your shades. In recent years sunglasses have been seen as more than just protective eyewear. They have been used to accessorize ones look similar to jewelry. We can’t wait to decorate some of our shades here at M&J.
