Kanye may have introduced the shutter shade to the rest of the world (or reintroduced, if you're old enough to remember the '80s), but that doesn't mean he's limited himself to just one eyewear style. In recent years, he's more likely to be spotted in oversized, plastic-framed aviator sunglasses, classic Wayfarers or basic black glasses with a rounded frame.

Sunglasses are a must for celebrities who would prefer not to make eye contact with the fans and photographers who stalk them at every turn, but as Kanye shows us, the right pair can also add panache to any outfit...even for those of us who are still waiting for our 15 minutes of fame. To wear them as well as he does, pick a frame that fits your face and makes a statement. An unexpected shape, size or color can mean the difference between a basic pair of shades and one that reflects your signature style.

And speaking of signature style...the next fashion lesson on our list is one that Kanye has taught us well.
