College Girl: 4 Affordable Pairs of Designer-worthy Shades

This summer, Birchbox’s content team is extremely lucky to have awesome intern Shana in the office. She’s a student at Syracuse University (the smarty pants is a dual major in magazine journalism and psychology) and she’ll be helping with researching, writing, product testing and, of course, blogging. In addition to daily beauty news posts, she’ll be writing a weekly column called College Girl.

Accessories can jazz up even the most boring of outfits and in the summer, no one should be without a great pair of sunglasses. From retro to open temple, I’ve noticed that almost every major designer has developed some glorious new styles—but they all come with sky-high prices. So I decided to round up some affordable alternatives—here are four pairs that will help you keep up with the trends without maxing out your credit card.
