There’s one trend the ever-stylish Rachel Bilson is totally over. “Sunglasses at night,” she tells PEOPLE flatly. “C’mon, really?”
The actress, a spokeswoman for Sunglass Hut, is a huge fan of shades in general (she won’t even tell us how many pairs she owns), but has a few particular styles she gravitates toward. “I love the Ray-Ban Wayfarer,” she shares, including Chanel and Vogue on her list of faves. “They are a perfect hybrid of being cool, but also a classic.”
Bilson suggests that every woman keep two pairs of sunglasses on hand — “One for when you are feeling ultra-glamorous and one for your everyday, cool and casual look,” she shares — and “think opposites” when shopping for frames. “If you have a square face, you’ll need rounded frames,” she explains. “Choosing the right shape is all about balancing your proportions.”
For spring/summer, Bilson is really into playing with color, too. “I am loving pastels, nudes, patterns, bright frames,” she shares. “Wearing colored or patterned sunglasses is such an easy way to spruce up an outfit.”
So, how does the fashionista know so much about shades? “I live in Los Angeles,” she says. “Sunglasses are the necessary accessory!” Tell us: How many pairs of sunglasses do you own?
