The weather's heating up and so are this season's latest fashion trends. I've been seeing all sorts of fun, summery styles pop up, from sporty tenniscore to borrowed-from-the-boys boxer shorts—but the one that's most recently caught my eye (quite literally) is the oversized sunglasses trend, which is totally taking me back to the early aughts. The oh-so-glam silhouette has appeared on multiple runways lately, from Gucci to Tom Ford, and fashionistas have already started to take note. I know I most likely have a Paris Hilton-inspired pair or two stashed in an old Juicy Couture bag somewhere, but in case the style's new to you, or you simply don't hoard sunnies for decades like I do, here are a few pairs you'll want to snag to get your peepers prepared for the sunny summer days ahead.

True to their name, these sunnies simply *belong* on a vacay in paradise this summer. They have a chic, exaggerated shape that screams "socialite off-duty," and reviewers say their quality exceeds expectations. As one reviewer shared, "Love them so much! I see so clearly out of them...Dark enough to protect my eyes from the sun, but light enough to still see clearly even indoors." Plus, you can get them either with or without a prescription, as well as customize the lens color to your liking.

This sleek black pair, designed with square frames and a touch of gold metal detailing at the sides, is *so* classic and versatile, I can almost guarantee they'll go with every outfit in your summer rotation. They can be ordered with prescription or non-prescription lenses, and have an anti-scratch coating so you won't have to stress over tossing them in your beach bag.

I adore the gold metal frame and unique honey-colored lenses of this pair of sunnies that will totally stand out during a poolside lounge session. They come with a cleaning cloth and case, so it'll be no hassle to keep them protected, and if you're in a rush packing for your next trip, Revolve's quick shipping will have them to you in a flash.

Shoppers say these colorful specs not only have an uber-stylish design, but feel comfortable while they're wearing them, too. The lenses have 100 percent UV protection, per the brand, so they're a totally functional pick that will keep your eyes safe from the sun's bright rays—while hiding those dark circles from the (late) night before.
