For Looking Sharp (or Hiding)

The amazing thing about sunglasses is their sheer versatility. Whether your goal is standing out or taking cover, here are your best holiday options. From back to front: Unisex Vintage Carrera black Champion frames with a neon yellow streak bring your 1980s attitude back. The classic aviator gets oversized with Angelina Jolie's favorite: silver Beryll Kelly frames with aqua lenses. Chanel incorporates a single ladylike "Perle" into the delicate arms of these tortoise laminate frames. Dior's Josephines for women make a statement with their Truman Capote–style orbs. Bright red Valentino shades bring holiday cheer, and Dior Homme continues to make the best men's eyewear that women want to steal…in this case, nerdy-cool blue tortoise laminates. Also from Dior Homme are the elegant gunmetal braid aviators. And in the very front, sunglasses really made to wear at night: TAG Heuer's revolutionary night vision specs, designed to correct low-light conditions at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
