I'm not usually one to invest in expensive sunglasses. I have this pair of Ray Bans that I absolutely love, but now that I have this one pair of very versatile and great quality sunglasses, I really don't need to be spending a lot of money on other pairs of a similar, or higher, price point.
I'm all for having multiple colors and styles, but I don't see the need for them all to cost what I could get a dress (or several), or a great quality bag, or a nice pair of shoes (or 2) for, while there are similar and much cheaper options out there. I just think if I want something fun like mirrored lenses or clear frames, or whatever else that has been trendy lately, I'm going to look for pairs on the cheaper side. Mostly because I know I could only wear them with certain outfits and probably won't be wearing them for years to come.
However I think you need at least 1 pair of investment sunglasses, because cheap ones break, a lot. I used to only have 1 pair at a time and I never paid more than probably $20 per pair, but found myself replacing them all the time. So I may invest in another pair of Ray Bans in a classic style that I could wear for years and I know will last, like some neutral wayfarers or aviators. But, as much as I have been loving the Karen Walker and Illesteva sunglasses everyone is wearing, I really would rather buy a cheap pair for about $150 (or up to $230) less. So here is a Splurge or Save on some of the most popular sunglasses right now!
