Sunglasses

1 UVEX RUSH

($50; uvexsports.com) Sporty and lightweight, Uvex's Rush features hypoallergenic nose pads so you won't sweat yourself into a breakout. The orange lenses provide I-must-be-tripping contrast.

2 ROXY CHOP SUEY

($70; roxy.com) These Jackie O-meets-Venice Beach beauties come in six colors and offer clear-as-day views through the supercurved, shatter-resistant lenses.

3 VON ZIPPER DRESDEN

($80; vonzipper.com) Today's sunglasses are huge. These Italian-made wraparounds could hide Paris, Nicole, and their itty-bitty squipper dogs, too.

4 DRAGON HAVANA

($80; dragonoptical.com) They're made overseas, but the squarish, low-profile Havanas belong on a Cuban beach at sunset-circa 1958.

5 OAKLEY SPIKE

($145; oakley.com) Metal frames are this year's plastic rims, and the Spikes combine Oakley's patented XYZ Optics-for maximum clarity from any angle-with more menacing industrial style than Arnold's shades in Terminator.

6 SMITH SUPER METHOD

($99; smithoptics.com) A supersized version of Smith's ever-popular Method, the Super Method sports polarized lenses for stellar protection from UV radiation.

7 ELECTRIC LIVEWIRE

($130; electricvisual.com) Steeped in the tradition of the King, these gold-colored specs recall a time when a white suit and a hairy chest were the height of cool. Viva Las Vegas!
