We can't say we're too surprised that red -– and all its vibrant iterations, from rose to oxblood to muted rouge –- has been trending hard for a while now. Everything from punchy red sweaters to tomato red accessories has been pulling at our heartstrings and influencing our sartorial moods. With the shift from cold weather to warm, it only makes sense that red itself has shifted into softer, rosy vibes. The rose bloom is our favorite way of keeping red around in the summer of 2024. It's the prettiest summertime hue, and we want it everywhere we can get it, including in shades.

And wearing pink-tinted sunglasses may bring more than just a dose of style and color to our lives. According to the American Optical, wearing pink and rose-tinted lenses can affect our moods, inspiring love, passion, and romance. So get ready to fall in love with these rosy shades.

Opt for oval frames with rose lenses

Oval frames offer a retro base for rose-tinted sunglasses. Go totally tonal with shell-pink frames, so that the whole look is saturated in a spring blossom palette. You can even style with other pink accessories, from necklace charms to a pastel pink headband, since candy-coated pastels are one of the biggest color trends of 2024. Taffeta's Brown Thick Acetate Oval Tinted Sunglasses with a pink lens are the perfect choice for this look.

Chocolate brown frames are a neutral version of this look

If you love the rose sunglasses trend but aren't enamored with the idea of going full-on pink, opt for a darker lens that still has warm undertones. The Dipsea shades in Dusk Bronze are a great way to achieve this look, and Coach's Charms Oversized Square Sunglasses in Brown Pink Gradient is also a gorgeous option. These are easy to style thanks to their versatility and neutral base.

Get nostalgic with Y2K pink shield sunglasses

There's nothing like a quality throwback, and since pink sunglasses are already out there, why not go full-on Y2K? We love these shield-style frames, and statement pieces lend themselves so well to the added embellishment of pink lenses. Have some fun with the pink Rimless Shield Y2K Wrap Around Sunglasses from Amazon, or go for the Brittney Y2K Classic Shield Sunglasses from Urban Outfitters before they're gone.

Pink on pink shades are a romantic version of the trend

Go all in on pink with sunglasses that feature bubblegum pink in both the frames and lenses. Square frames are a classic, so taking this iconic look and turning it into a rose sensation is a great way to play with the trend. The Polo PH4167 sunglasses are an ideal way to achieve this perfection. Get ready for a major mood boost with such bright shades.

Big lenses are back and they're pinker than ever

While small sunglasses are still happening, big frames are emerging again all over the place. Go for major rose power by choosing sunglasses that feature overly large frames in the most romantic tone of the season. The Stunner Sunglasses from Alo in Pink Mirror are a gorgeous way to achieve this look, or the Pink Lens Ombre Oversized Square Frame Sunglasses from Pretty Little Thing do the job nicely.
