You categorize your accessories - bandanas for brunch, heels for happy hour, ponchos for the post office.

And you need sunnies to match every moment. Find yours thanks to designer Garrett Leightson of the founder of iconic eyewear line Oliver Peoples. Leight has opened his newest flagship on South Congress, with a space reflecting his Venice-born vibe. Stroll among custom designed planters, an ombre light installation (pictured below) and pretty rows of glasses lining the walls. Hand finished in L.A., the celeb-approved luxury brand offers a range of styles like the pretty-in-pink Marian sun and varied springtime lenses in hyped-up hues. The optical selection will have you seeing the world in a better light, too. 

Because every occasion should be a bit of a spectacle.
