“I love the Yamina sunglasses from Port Tanger. I like my glasses big enough to hide any evidence of a sleepless night and these are the perfect size. The light green lenses act as a nice contrast to the black frame.” — Stephanie Sanchez, fashion & accessories editor

“As someone with a round face shape, I like my sunglasses angular and not too oversized. This cat-eye pair from Saint Laurent checks all those boxes and then some. Plus, the crimson color delivers a similar confidence-boosting effect as a red lip.” — Emma Childs, fashion writer
