Despite practically being a requirement for any spring outfit in NYC, shopping for sunglasses isn't always as easy as it should be. Small boutiques may stock a few pairs, but they're often hit-or-miss. Department stores, on the other hand, sometimes carry too many—and the result is often overwhelming. And stumbling into a mall-chain optometrist can be tricky, since the selection is often limited to mall-chain brands.

To assist with all your eyewear needs, we've put together a list of ten stores that we think are actually worth your time and energy while shopping for sunglasses. Some have small but well-curated selections, others specialize in hard-to-find vintage frames, and some even have a secret back room where you might just bump into Kanye West.
