No fashion maven would be caught dead without a good pair of sunglasses, so in honor of Coach’s new sunwear collection we asked our Editor-in-Chief, some of our favorite tastemakers and a few members of Team Zoe to spill which style they’re wearing and the other daily essentials they won’t leave home without.
"I can't leave my house in the morning without English breakfast tea, layers of gold jewels and this pair of oversize tortoiseshell sunnies."
Claire Thomas, The Kitchy Kitchen
"I wrap and pack treats every day and am constantly grabbing things out of my desk drawer. I have everything I need within arm's reach, including my aviator sunnies for when I'm ready to head out the door."
Courtney Trop, Always Judging
"I usually start my day with berries, my planner, this pair of glamorous sunnies and some sort of inspiration— whether it’s via a magazine or a great tumblr account—they're all key to getting my day started."
Mandana Dayani, Vice President, Rachel Zoe Inc.
"I begin every morning with my favorite Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream moisturizer. It feels so light but leaves my skin soft and hydrated throughout a busy day at the office."
Marisa Runyon, Director of Brand Partnerships, Rachel Zoe Inc.
"Nothing wakes me up like a jolt of color which is why I keep this pink lip color and punchy laptop cover close at hand. Running to appointments all over town requires sugary treats and these seriously chic sunglasses."
Emily Faulstich, Hawaiian Coconut
"My favorite essentials for a luxurious morning include a Diptyque candle, a good bronzing foundation, Sugar lip gloss, some costume jewelry to brighten up my outfit and these big Coach sunglasses to make me feel like a 1950s French movie starlet."
Kate Wolfson, Freelance Fashion and Beauty Editor, The Zoe Report
"I look at my phone first thing in the morning, and then it rarely leaves my hand for the rest of the day. And I can’t function without my trusty sunnies—I love these because they’re super light and offer a subtle pop of color too. ”
