Shopping for sunglasses can be a daunting task. Before you hashtag #firstworldproblems, picture yourself in a store scouring racks upon racks of frames in myriad sizes, shapes, and colors. The best case scenario is you find a pair that seemingly complements your face shape. The worst case is you walk out rocking something so futuristic, people sarcastically inquire whether or not you're planning a trip to the moon. It's a bit of a lose-lose situation any way you slice it.
Avoid a summer's worth of embarrassment by trying Illesteva’s cool new "build your own" option. The Italian luxury eyewear brand favored by Beyoncé, Cara Delevingne, and Katy Perry specializes in cooler-than-thou sunglasses with a distinct contemporary age in a veritable rainbow of color options, and is now letting you take the reins by designing your very own pair.
Play around with the tool by first selecting a frame, then a front color, a side color, and a lens color (warning: this process can be very addictive). We recommend combining different textures and hues for a truly attention-grabbing pair (after all, Fashion Week is just around the corner). Check out is easy peasy once you settle on a style: Frames range from $190 to $300, and each custom order takes up to two weeks with free ground shipping within the U.S. If you're not pleased with your creation, each order is eligible for a free return within 10 days. Go ahead, get shady.
