The truth is, for the most part all sunglasses are created equal. Save for maybe the occasional diamond-studded or leather-trimmed pair, oftentimes it's hard to tell the difference between a $5 pair and a $300 pair -- same materials, same shape, same design -- some just happen to have the designer stamp of approval and the accompanying triple-digit price tag. And while it's certainly nice to have at least one pair of expensive sunglasses in your arsenal of shades, there are just too many resurgent retro-inspired trends worth trying on -- cat-eye, circular, etc -- to justify spending that much on a whole collection of season-approved shades. Luckily for us recessionistas, there are plenty of trendy pairs of sunglasses on the shelves for less than $30, and unless you're looking closely for an obnoxious Tory Burch monogram or a cursive Ray Ban signature on the lens, no one will be able to tell they're not designer!
