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.
