The Quick Fix:
You have fashion aficionados, actress Diane Kruger and designer Mary-Kate Olsen, to thank for the revival of teashades this season. Sleeker and more refined than the traditional hippie incarnation, Pre-Fall offers a host of souped-up round-framed styles, featuring mirror-shine lenses and sharp chrome framework.

"I heavily reference that era because I think it suits me the most. I love the whole cat eye, pale-lipped, big-haired look," Chung tells us.

Work ladylike with a '60s twist, à la Alexa Chung
