Now that summer’s booming, it’s safe to say that sunglasses trump any form of accessory this season. If you plan on lounging in the sun while reading the best books, have a picnic, or hang out with friends outdoors, you’ll have to sport the hottest new sunglasses of the season. Scroll down below to see our best picks that not only shade your eyes but elevate your face and entire outfit this summer and all year long!

Fly into the summer with Emporio Armani

The first sunglasses on the list is the Emporio Armani EA2126, which borrows influences from the aviator shades. This pair is structured and features a geometric, teardrop shape. The lens comes tinted and the flat-top area is connected by a retro-esque double bridge. Available in a matte finish or glossy silver, these glasses come customisable for both the gentle and the genteel.

Round up your summer with Giorgio Armani

Rounded frames never go out of style and fit almost perfectly on any face, regardless of its structure. These Giorgio Armani AR903M sunglasses are moulded in acetate and are held together by brown crystal lenses. The thick bridge accentuates the sunglasses’ elegance on any of its wearers. Borrowed from the brand’s ’80s archives, these shades bring forth a summer-y, laid-back vibe. Laser-engraved with an enamelled Giorgio Armani logo at the temples, wear these and be sure to have a few heads turned towards you.
