No Shade: The Ladies of OkayAfrica Try Out This Season’s Hottest Sunglasses

DIASPORA—Sunglass season is upon us.

Shades are easily our favorite summer accessory. As we settle into the hotter months of the year they’re an absolute must-have.

Sunglasses are a care-free way to add some flair to any look, while keeping your precious eyes guarded from the sun.

We figured, that if we’re going to wear them—and we most certainly are—we might as well rock the most vibrant, standout pair we can find. There’s no settling for mediocre frames—well, at least not for the ladies of OkayAfrica.

We got together to try out some of this season’s flyest, high-end sunglasses from major fashion houses and a photoshoot ensued.

These stylish “hater blockers” have us ready for whatever shade might get thrown our way this summer.  If you’re looking to grab a statement pair for yourself this summer, check out the photos below for some inspiration. Information on where you can purchase each pair is underneath.
