14 Chic designer sunglasses for throwing shade with style

There are five things that all It-girls always have on hand: lip oil, lipstick, lip gloss, a travel-size fragrance, and a pair of chic sunglasses. Even on the gloomiest days and nights out with not a glint of sunlight in sight, a pair of stylish shades is an absolute essential. They’re a multipurpose accessory that not only protects your eyes from harsh UV rays, but also instantly elevates any look with a touch of chic and mystique—even with the simplest of outfits.

However, finding the right pair can be quite tricky when there is a multitude of styles and brands to choose from—you’d just want to have it all! The key is to pick a pair that’s timeless and versatile, suits your personal aesthetic, and perfectly fits your face like it was made for you. Once you’ve found the pair, you will never part with it wherever you go.

To help you in your search, we’ve curated a fabulous list of the newest designer shades in all sorts of styles, colours, and frames below. For something classic and chic, Chanel’s Rectangle Sunglasses and Celine’s Triomphe 01 Sunglasses in Acetate Milky Burgundy are must-haves. Alternatively, you may also choose Saint Laurent’s Sunglasses with Square Acetate Frames and Nylon Lenses if you’re looking for a genderless pick.

For those who have an eccentric sense of style, consider Versace’s Maxi Medusa Biggie Squared Sunglasses, Bottega Veneta’s Angle Cat-eye Sunglasses, Dior’s pearl-decked MissDior B1U cat-eye shades, or the streetwear-sporty Maison Margiela x Gentle Monster MM003 OL3 dual-wear sunglasses. If retro with a vintage flair is more to your taste, you will surely love Gucci’s Geometric-frame Sunglasses and Burberry’s Logo Detail Cat-eye Frame Sunglasses. And with that, happy shopping!
