What would Vancouverites do without their sunglasses?

Sunglasses are the ultimate summer accessory in Vancouver.

The ultimate summer accessory, sunglasses can be worn with everything from Brooks Brothers to bikinis while 
providing practical protection from ultraviolet rays. More importantly, their ability to broadcast an instant cool factor will transform stolen sidewalk lunches into mini beach vacations – if you let them work their magic. When on the hunt, remember the continued dominance of retro-chic means bigger is irrefutably better (within reason). Here, a 
selection of this summer’s most stylish looks.
