Experiment with different sizes of the lenses as well as the colours to get the desired pop diva look.
The classic John Lennon-inspired sunglasses get a modern reinterpretation for the season. They original styles evoke elegance, but the new round eyeglasses are seen in many stores now in fun colours and artsy embellishments.
