The Five Essential Sunglass Styles Every Woman Should Own

The Jackie O-Style "Lady Shades"

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is arguably our country's most stylish First Lady of all time—and while she was celebrated for her tweedy suits and pillbox hats, her signature oversized shades are perhaps the most iconic element of her look. Beloved by Hollywood actresses both past and present, this style's particularly flattering on those with longer or more angular face shapes—or those with a predilection for partying or pulling all-nighters.

When it comes to trends, sunglass shapes and brands seem to fall in and out of favor as quickly as do denim silhouettes and washes. But just like jeans, there are a select few styles of shades you absolutely need in your arsenal—consider them the eyewear equivalents of skinny, flared and boyfriend-cut denim. While you should certainly feel free to experiment with the season's more faddish frames—perhaps at a lower price point?—you can safely consider these five timeless (or in some cases, soon-to-be-timeless) sunglass types your year-round, all-occasion staples.

From the '80s-esque Wayfarer to the oversized Jackie O, click through to see and shop the five styles of sunglasses every woman should own.
