When we think of summer, we often associate the warmer weather it brings with shorter hemlines, long weekends, and parties by the pool. But the fun doesn’t have to end there! You can jazz up your eye-wear. That’s right, make a spectacle of yourself and sport frames in daring colors, and cool shapes to match your sunny disposition. With endless prescription frames and sunnies to choose from, Warby Parker has you (and your eyes) covered!

Known for their affordable men and women’s glasses that don’t sacrifice style for price, the American company is based online, but opened a number of showrooms,  and recently expanded to the Canadian market. How great is that, eh? And because with every pair purchased one is also donated to someone in need, why not stock up on a few –a splurge you can finally feel good about! Here are four styles from their newly launched Summer Collection 2014 that are sure to suit your taste:

For the Guys:

Green With Envy: Tinted in a green shade that promises to make others jealous, the Ormsby Whiskey Tortoise frames will look great paired with a denim shirt, khaki chinos, and slim loafers.

Timless with a Twist: The rectangular shape of the Mitchell Olivewood frames is a classic! Sure, we’ve seen this style worn by scholars, celebrities, and the cool downtown crowd, but you’ll fall for these glasses’ amber shade, reminiscent of tropical sunsets. Throw on colored shorts, and a laid-back white tee for an effortless look.

And the Gals:

Spot On!: With a rounded shape and brightly speckled texture, these playful Lyle Hanalei Tortoise frames are a statement piece on their own! So when planning your outfit, stick with neutral and patternless frocks from head to toe. But if you dare walk on the wild side (as these glasses should inspire you to), wear them with a fun denim romper!

Show Your Stripes: The Banks Striped Sassfras are sunglasses fit for a diva! To play up the glamor that they evoke, opt for a white button-up blouse tucked into a midi pleated skirt for an outfit that is oh-so-Audrey Hepburn.

Style is served!

As guys, you may not think much of accessories besides pocket squares and ties, let alone what you wear on your wrists. But bracelets too can play a big part in pulling an outfit together and giving you that extra Johnny Depp edge. I’m not talking about bangles and charms here, so take a look at these 5 guy-suitable styles:

Nautical Knots: Like the surf and sun? Why not sport a nautical inspired bracelet. Opt for materials such as rope or twine, even knotted leather. Think preppy with a weathered edge . This brown anchor one from Urban Outfitters should do —take a look!

Tough Cuffs: Is that a motorcycle engine roaring? For those who aren’t all about the pretty-boy prep, choose wide leather cuffs like the one from Diesel. These look great paired with jeans and a v-neck, even played up with a dress shirt.

Leaning Towards Leather: If a cuff is too much, then start small. Try a thin leather band, and add in a braid for texture and detailing. Look to this Guess one for inspiration.

Boy Beads: No, not pearls! Nice, matte, onyx beads. This bracelet from John Varvatos is a great example –subtle, simple, yet elegant. Did I mention different from the rest?

Mix in Some Metal: For high mirror-like shine and cool features,  Armani Exhange has you covered.

With so many options, which would you wear?
