Sunglasses. Not really an original or imaginative name – they are literally a piece of glass (or plastic) covering your eyes from the sun. Worn by both men and women year round, they also double as a headband and can be found draped down the front of shirts all over the country.

In fact, they can even be more fashionable when they are worn off the eyes! Sunglasses can range anywhere from five dollars to five thousand dollars, and are arguably one of the most versatile fashion items. Dare to wear the wrong pair of sunglasses, and it can easily ruin your entire outfit or reputation (if your reputation is based around having great sunglasses that is).

Because there are so many styles on the market vary so much, here are the top 9 best sunglasses for women in 2016 that we have picked for you.
