These clear frames have been a fashion blogger favorite since last year, and they’re not going anywhere. From crystal clear to tinted hues, they match with everything in your wardrobe (no coordination needed).

If you live in Brooklyn (or want to pretend you do), this style is a prerequisite. They’re a little hipster, but they’re easy for anyone to pull off. Think of them as your favorite oversize sunglasses, but for the indoors.
