Gradient sunglasses remind us of seedy ’70s characters like Johnny Depp in Blow and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Boogie Nights. Drug dealers, porn groupies, ne’er-do-wells. Something about these shades feels, well, shady. Not wanting to give off an air of swindler, we’ve basically avoided them like the plague, but then Jennifer Lopez stepped out in a metal aviator pair and we decided to rethink things. Perhaps the gradient is just subtle enough to add a dose of cool to a simple off-duty outfit? Perhaps such an interesting detail makes statement jewelry and bold accessories unnecessary? Judging by J.Lo’s sexy-yet-effortless ensemble—perfect for a regular Saturday—we’re going to give it a shot. If you’re with us, shop our picks here.
Is there any outfit more perfect for a Saturday than a bodysuit, high-waisted skinnies, heeled sandals, sunglasses and simple hoops?
