Aside from glamorous events, starlets have relied on designers like Chanel, Matsuda and Karen Walker to spruce up any on-the-go look. Jessica Alba looked effortlessly chic in pink sunglasses while shopping for groceries, and Carey Mulligan looked red-carpet-ready in half-mooned shades while at the airport.

Celebrities have proven that sunglasses aren't just for protecting eyes from the harsh sun (of course a bonus), but also act as an easy accessory to spruce up any look. "Don't underestimate the cosmetic power of sunglasses," Dita Von Teese told T Magazine. "It's worth spending a bit of money on a quality pair."

From bold and daring to classic and subtle, there's a pair of sunglasses to suit any personality. "You can tell a lot about a woman by her sunnies," stylist Rachel Zoe shared with WhoWhatWear.com. "To me, sunglasses are everything. They are the perfect complement to any outfit, plus, putting on a pair of sunglasses takes much less thought than choosing the right jewelry for your look."
