8 Designer sunglasses you need to add to your collection this season

With the spring season on the horizon, now is the perfect time to give your wardrobe a refreshing update. Sunglasses, in particular, are a crucial addition as the sun begins to make its presence felt, and we’ve curated a selection of essential eyewear that is sure to enhance your style. From Chanel’s oversized shades to Gentle Monster’s chic eyewear, here are eight pairs of sunnies you cannot afford to miss this season. 


Oversized sunglasses

It’s a well-known fact that a great pair of oversized sunglasses not only conceals eye bags but also offers additional coverage and shields your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. For a classy touch, consider the burgundy Chanel sunglasses or the SL M119 Blaze sunglasses from Saint Laurent. Each pair features a subtle dual-toned frame, adding a playful flair to your overall look. 

Pilot sunglasses

Aviator sunglasses are always an ideal choice, and if you’re looking for an elevated pair, consider these Prada sunglasses. In contrast to the ordinary design, this pair features notably larger frames and highlights the brand’s iconic triangle logo on the temples. Meanwhile, Giorgio Armani offers understated elegance in its eyewear, showcasing a minimalist yet refined design. Nature lovers would appreciate the grey lenses as they reveal the true colours of objects.

Oval sunglasses

These shades are in trend at the moment and it’s easy to understand the hype given their universal appeal across different face shapes, contingent on the frame’s thickness and width. The Sugar Buff WC3 by Gentle Monster stands out with a design crafted for comfort on a low nose bridge and high cheekbones. If you’re after a bold statement piece, the clear choice is the silver Balenciaga Swift sunglasses, which can draw attention even from a distance.

Rectangle sunglasses

Rectangle sunglasses are a popular choice among many thanks to its gender-neutral silhouette. Among the most sought-after pieces are the Versace Medusa Biggie sunglasses, embellished with a gold-tone heritage Medusa medallion on its temples. Another compelling selection is the Triomphe XL 01 sunglasses from Celine, which boast a captivating glossy tortoiseshell print and are adorned with the label’s iconic insignia on their temples.
