How to Actually Pull Off Super-Embellished Sunglasses

Hint: Just lean into their craziness.

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.

It's tempting to look at a pair of bedazzled sunglasses with two enormous tassels hanging off of them and think, "Maybe I should pair these with just jeans and a simple T-shirt." False. This impulse is wrong. Instead, lean into their weird, grandma's-costume-closet vibe by adding a pair of, say, rainbow palazzo pants and checkered Vans. Heck, even add some googly eyes!
