Fashion week is in full swing here in N.Y.C. and while the temperatures are pretty dismal, the sun is still shining. And let's be honest, even if there was no sunlight, the week's must-have accessory would still be an amazing pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are a cure-all! They hide tired eyes, protect from UV damage and—most importantly—are perfect for all the people watching you do both on and off the runway. Here are nine sunglasses you'll see on the usual suspects found in and around New York Fashion Week.
