The $16 Sunglasses That Will Instantly Update Your Spring Look

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked National associate editor Kenzie Bryant.

Arched Metal Mix Sunglasses, $16 at Urban Outfitters

I refuse to spend over $20 on sunglasses for a couple reasons. There are the usual easy-to-break and easy-to-lose arguments, but also, I tend to put my wardrobe budget into shoes and basics that will last me at least a couple seasons and then rely on accessories to update my mainstays. These Urban Outfitters sunnies are perfect because they're low-commitment ($16!) and trendy in a way that fits with the summer clothes I already own. The clear bridge and light colored frames are nice touches, and at a fraction of the cost of similar Karen Walker sunnies, it's cool with me if I retire them by next spring.
