12 Pairs of Sunglasses That You’re Going To Want To Add to Your Summer Stash
As the days get longer and muggier, there are few sartorial staples that one must consider investing in. A light scarf is always welcome, as are breezy hats and flip-flops, but if there’s one thing you absolutely can’t do without come summer, it’s a pair of sunglasses.
It’s safe to say that nothing tops the appeal of a classic black pair of sunnies, and if you’re in agreement, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to Illesteva’s fail-safe creation, which comes in a universally flattering shape with rose gold rims. But if you’re feeling experimental this year, why not give unconventional hues a try? For those who prefer to keep it low-key, Celine’s deep brown frames are a great starting point, along with Rimowa’s soft brown glasses and Linda Farrow’s gold aviators. Ready to go a tad bolder? Dive into the blue with Jacques Marie Mage’s square framed azure piece, add a buttery yellow Bottega Veneta pair to your accessories drawer, or get romantic—quite literally—with the rose tinted mask glasses over at Rick Owens.
A great way to spruce up your collection of sunglasses is by experimenting with intricate frames. Jimmy Choo’s hexagon pair come in a luxe shade of muted gold, while Chloé gives the simple square shape a dramatic spin by going oversized. Loewe’s distinct logo pops along the arms of its round-framed sunnies, while Alexander McQueen‘s come studded with the brand’s signature gilded skulls. Of course, we couldn’t end our roundup without a little something for the maximalists. Dolce & Gabbana’s summer must-have comes flanked with two crystal-studded leopards… need we say more?
