If you haven't heard of Allie X yet, then you're seriously missing out. Katy Perry is a fan of this singer-songwriter, so we suggest adding her debut album, CollXtion II, to your playlist ASAP. And in the meantime, we're here to tell you a bit about her cool sense of style, particularly her choice in eyewear, which she has quite an impressive collection of—just take a peek at her Instagram.

The 32-year-old singer-songwriter recently wrapped up her North American tour, but she made some time to tell us a bit about where her obsession with sunglasses comes from. And we found it quite relatable.

"My obsession with sunglasses comes from a desire to feel comfortable," she shared with us. "The eyes are the most vulnerable part of the face, and sunglasses are a fashionable way to protect them." She adds that she is a very sensitive person, and if she is "feeling anything, it is very obvious in [her] face." So the sunglasses, in addition to being a stylish trademark of hers, also provide her with the comfort of concealment. 

It's no surprise then that she's racked up quite an enviable assortment of sunnies. So we asked her to pick out her five favorite pairs and tell us a bit about why she's so fond of them. We must say, her choices are really good. Get ready to press "Add to Cart" to all of them.
