Summer Must-Have: Acetate Sunglasses

The long summer days are almost upon us, bringing plenty of days spent outdoors by a pool or on a patio with a drink. Along with your other must haves; the perfect bathing suit, large waterproof beach bag, SP45 and other essential items, one thing that should be in your summer arsenal this year are a pair of acetate sunglasses. Everyone from Tom Ford to Ray Ban has jumped on this hot trend. With trips to the West Coast being planned or other beach locals, it's never too early to find your favorite pair of sunglasses for the summer. While some people may scoff at the idea of wearing an accessory made out of material most known for platform shoes, let's get one thing straight; Tom Ford knows best. The Leo Acetate sunglasses from his eponymous brand is my personal pick on how to rock the acetate trend, made almost in a tortoise shell design. Among Ford's Leo, the following are other perfect alternatives.
