2009 BEST Sunglasses

Saks Fifth Avenue

Whether required for stalking an ex, masking last night’s excesses, or just plain blocking the sun, sunglasses are a very personal accessory—they’re the shades on the windows to one’s soul, after all. Eyewear emporium Robert Marc gets top marks for its sleek styles, but the one-brand situation leaves something to be desired. And while the high-to-low price spectrum at Solstice is laudable, it can’t compare to Saks, where choices abound for men and women of seemingly all tastes and budgets: Museum-rare Chloé, Valentinos, and Cavallis reign among hundreds of frames from Prada, Dior, and Oliver Peoples, and even Marc by Marc Jacobs pairs that can be had for less than $100.
