Raise your hand if you've already lost your favorite pair of sunglasses this summer. Now raise your hand if you're secretly sick of last year's frames. If you currently have your hand raised, then this list is for you.

Did we miss your favorite? Let us know in the comments.—Reporting by Jared Hatch and Jenny Berg
