Summer is just around the corner, your Hamptons share is booked, and you’ve begun to sift through the stuff you lived in last summer. Can’t bear the sight of your old sunglasses? Retire the Riviera-chic gold-rimmed aviators, stow your Anna Wintour–esque wraparounds, and stop by Oliver Peoples for something lighter, brighter, and preferably rimless. In the past, when the Hollywood crowd wanted Peoples’s signature wild, candy-colored lenses -- say in an orange-and-violet combo -- they had to custom-order them. This spring, fans like Calista Flockhart, Jennifer Lopez, and Lenny Kravitz are scooping new, ready-made versions inspired by the zodiac (we want the purple-lensed Scorpio style, $420). Sounds too much like an investment? At H&M, lookalikes are only $4.50 a pair.
