"With my sunglasses on, I'm Jack Nicholson. Without them, I'm fat and 60." - Jack Nicholson
Just like a closet without that perennially comely Little Black Dress or that nonchalantly cool hooded sweatshirt feels wanting, a closet without a classic eye wear is totally unforgivable. Eyewear has moved beyond being an embarrassing accompaniment to one of the most necessary.
A statement eye piece (be that eyeglasses or sunglasses) defines who you are. You have got to exhibit certain astuteness while making a choice. 
Know your face cut, know the classics, the height of sassy eyewear and you will be in ship-shape condition.
