If you weren’t so keen on this spring’s ubiquitous white shades, try red! They may seem a little bold at first , but they flatter most skin tones and range from deep burgundy to eye-popping cherry. Lindsay Lohan added some color to a basic black dress with her classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers in red, $130, at sunglasshut.com — not surprisingly, fashionista Mary-Kate Olsen also has a pair. Check out our picks for the hottest red shades, no matter what your budget is!

well i guess i’m just going to be labled unstylish, but i don’t think rayban wayfarers are a classic that are worth bringing back in style! they look dorky on everyone! i’ve seen them on kirsten dunst, lindsay, and mary-kate…not exactly the girls whose style i want to emulate… and they always look funny to me. in my opinion the glasses shown to the left that wrap around or are oversized rectangular shapes are so much more flattering. but i do like red.

glad on

This is so much more flattering than white shades! I would wear these in a heartbeat, although you can walk into target and buy a knockoff for 10 bucks!!!
On another note, Lindseys hair parted like this looks bad. It makes her look like she is balding. And I don’t like the busy earings. Don’t get me wrong, I usually say that Lindsey is a beautiful girl. This is just a REALLY bad hair day for her!

I agree with faith. the wayfarers are so ugly. i will definitely pass on that “trend”!

I hate wayfarers. HATE them!

I had a pair of Wayfarers back in the early 90s. Gave them to my mom. Can not imagine buying them again! Like Faith (above) says, the wraparound styles are much more flattering. But I really like the big and chunky sunglasses that are so in fashion this season!

I’ve put together a gallery of sunglasses on my web site http://www.smallshoppingworld.com.

who cares on

Love the red, hate the ones lindsey’s got on. not flattering. She should try less sqaure. AND DYE HER HAIR BACK TO ITS NATURAL COLOR!!!! I’ve always wanted red hair.
