We're in the swing of spring, when beautiful weather calls for even more beautiful accessories. Tops on our list? Luxury shades from fashion houses like Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Dior!  We've assembled a huge list of chic shades for you to buy right now... from Solstice Sunglass Boutiques nationwide or online at SolsticeSunglasses.com.

Eyewear guru Eden Wexler of Solstice Sunglass Boutiques weighs in on which of these styles — from trendy over-sized shades to classic Wayfarers — work best for your face. Wexler suggests aviators for long, and heart-shaped faces, and over-sized shades for oval faces and rounder faces. But, according to Wexler,  no matter what your face shape, there's one style which works well for all of us: Wayfarers.

"The rectangular shape offsets facial roundness and complements a square jawline."
