The sun is shining, spring is here and your sunglasses are… uh oh. You broke them. No, you lost them? They’re somewhere, you swear! Face it — your beautiful, handcrafted, designer sunglasses are gone forever. Perhaps you should try a… less delicate (and expensive) pair this spring, instead?

There’s something to be said for the sub-$50 pair of sunglasses — specifically that they’re cheap, so if you misplace, crush, snap or just get sick of them, the damage to your wallet is minimal. A little bit of frugality goes a long way, too; the fool-proof three-for-the-price-of-one method is not only endorsed and utilized by our editors, but it’s a great way to vary your spring eyewear beyond just one style.

Speaking of style, the sky’s the limit, even when it comes to low-price pairs. Military-esque aviators, groovy circular glasses, humungous “la bella vita” shades, even the iconic wayfarer style, are all well within a constrained budget.

In some ways, of course, cheap sunglasses don’t compare to the best of the best, but there are some options that come pretty close, which we’ve condensed into a list below. Premium features like polarized lenses aren’t necessarily off the table, and we’d personally wear just about every pair on this list out and about. So hop to it, and remember — you can always buy another pair.
