As summer approaches, we’ve clued you into both affordable sunglasses and trending styles for sunnies, but there’s nothing quite like a quality pair of designer shades. From historic labels like Ray-Ban and Versace to elite performance-driven models from newer players (we’re looking at you, District Vision) to on-trend startups looking to make a splash, there’s a variety of high-end sunglasses you should have on your radar.
If You’re Going to Buy Anything This Memorial Day, Make It a Pair of Sunglasses
Sunnies should be your first shopping holiday purchase
Much like a good watch, shades are an excellent way to exude coolness and composure, and to subtly — or not, we don’t judge — flex your impeccable taste, quite luxury style. It’s certainly not what we would call a frivolous investment, either; with the higher price points, better materials and modern cuts are at your fingertips. A heavy metal frame or lightweight acetate both prove more durable than cheap plastic shades found at the gas station, and look a hell of a lot better, too.
Plus, designer sunnies aren’t simply about status. The right pair can be the signature element of your warm-weather wardrobe. Premium aviators can take your run-of-the-mill white tee and jeans to Top Gun levels of swagger. (If that’s not your cup of tea, how about Batman levels?)
