If your favorite sunnies from last summer bear the scars and scratches from use (or from kids grabbing them constantly), now is the perfect time to replace them. And just because it’s in your fashion comfort zone, don’t immediately re-order the exact same style you’ve been wearing. Why not try something new? The hottest shapes for 2012–round lenses, cat eye, retro styles (think Wayfarers) and sporty shield looks–look great on virtually every face shape. They are also available in just about every price point. Pick a pair (or two) for fun in the sun all year long.
