Aside from being a necessary and practical accessory for protecting your eyes against harmful UV rays, sunglasses can also say a lot about your own personal style. Whether you enjoy sporting a retro, hipster, sassy, professional, or bookwormish vibe – sunglasses are the perfect accessory for emphasizing the style that you love most. Plus, you can switch them up and transform your entire look instantly. So, which sunglasses style are your favourite this summer? Check out a few of ours below!

Classic Ray Bans

Ray Bans have been around for a while and continue to be one of the top picks when it comes to popular trending eyewear. Since the classic aviator style first had its big screen celebrity debut on Top Gun, it seems that consumers still can’t get enough of this 80s retro style. Aviators are edgy, chic, and classy with just enough retro style to keep up with the times.

The Cat Eye Frames

Like many of our current, modern fashionable inspirations, the cat eye frames — which originated from the hoppin’ 1950s — are quickly becoming just as popular today! The clear edges and angles are undeniably chic, sassy, and bold, perfect for a little nostalgic touch, which we believe will never go out of style.

Retro Clout Sunglasses

Thanks to Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, the Retro Clout sunglasses became an instant hit among the masses. The grunge rock star helped to break down gender stereotypes by sporting these bold, oval (and “traditionally feminine”) looking sunglasses. So if you were a child of the 90s, chances are the Clout frames may still be lingering in your top 10 favourite sunglasses styles.

Clubmaster Sunglasses

The vintage-inspired Clubmaster sunglasses are cool and pronounced with classic semi-rimless frames that accentuate the browline. These are great for highlighting the eyes and adding a sharp, dapper accessory to any outfit for men or women. Perfect for wearing at the office or out on the town!

Oversized Hipster

The oversized frames can be found in a variety of different styles — square, oval, round — which is why they’re so versatile and another popular favourite! Whether you’re a hipster or not, the large size is always a winning fit since they can be dressed up or down and they provide more protection for your eyes against the sun — it’s a win-win!
