Sunglasses are an indispensable item for the summer season. While they provide much-needed protection from the sun’s UV rays, they are also the perfect versatile addition to your outfits; they add colour and character to your look.
Here are our top picks for this season.
١. A Classic: CELINE
The Square S130 from CELINE is our perfect classic black frame. Its design is both timeless and sophisticated. If you’d like to invest in sturdy shades that will serve you many warm summers, this is the one.
٢. Some Pop of Colour: ALAÏA
You can never go wrong with cat eye sunglasses, especially an Alaïa. With a spin on the retro design and a Lolita-reminiscent cherry red, this pair is a guaranteed head-turner.
٣. A Tiny Frame (done right): YSL
Small frames inspired by The Matrix are here to stay. This SL 557 is a perfect departure from the classic square frame – and if you can pull off this look, why not go for it?
٤. An Inflated Frame: LOEWE
No brand understands inflated design better than Loewe, a superb cross between futuristic and retro. And you might think, “But everyone owns them!” Well, for the right reasons.
٥. A Yellow Tint: PRADA
If over-the-top funky isn’t your brand, but you still want to have fun, these Pradas await you. Ornated with the brand’s iconic triangle, they are feminine, contemporary, and sophisticated.
١. A Staple: CELINE
Initially designed for aviation, aviator sunglasses have achieved iconic status thanks to several film appearances by actors like Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. It’s a cool and charismatic classic.
٢. Havana Brown: Bottega Veneta
These Bottega Veneta frames offer comfortable everyday wear while exhibiting elegant yet simple style. The design is timeless and suitable for any occasion.
٣. A Yellow Tint (to match with your lady, of course): PRADA
It complements any face shape, the black frame goes with everything, and the yellow tint brings a bit of cool to the style. It’s one of those shades that you can rely on at any time.
٤. Clubmaster Style: Tom Ford
With its bold upper rim, thinner lower edge, and distinctive eyebrow line accent, the Clubmaster style has become a timeless eyewear design. We like this Tom Ford pair.
٥. Something Different: Acne Studios
The Swedish brand has become synonymous with bold and unique designs. These sunglasses are true to the brand’s ethos; cartoonish cool with an unconventional shape and neutral colourway.
