Spring is here. Aside from escaping the frigid cold and warming days, Spring brings with it a need for a refresh. It's time to switch up your rotation — toss away those heavy jackets, chunky snow boots, thick scarves, and any remembrance of frigid windchills. To help you with this closet reset, we have put together a Spring Toolkit with some of the most versatile, layer-friendly, colorful, and rain-ready Spring wear options of 2022.

Selecting your sunglasses for the day isn't just a choice of style — it's a choice of style tribe. Are you a The Weeknd stan inspired by his leather trench coat and yellow lens combination? Or are you a fiend for Y2K blue, à la Britney? Or maybe like Lakeith Stanfield, who paired a wide-lapel YSL jumpsuit with orange-tinted sunglasses to the Oscars, do you prefer a more '70s-inspired look?

Lenses of the more bold variety had a moment for much of the early 2000s, but they've returned to the forefront of eyewear on many different genre fronts. Whether it's Oakley outfitting people in sportswear lenses in shades of distant galaxies or younger fashion labels like Gentle Monster going wild with cyberpunk pink (matched to hair by Evan Mock below), there are plenty of ways to invest in the color camp you commit to.

Whichever camp you're in, we've done the hard bit for you, rounding up the best of the best when it comes to bold sunglasses. From the yellow lens experiencing a resurgence thanks to the likes of Our Legacy and Gucci down to straight-up classic tints.
