7 Stylish designer sunglasses to splurge on this season

Did you know that you still need to put on your sunglasses, even if it’s autumn or winter? Since the sun doesn’t rise as high in the sky as it does in the summer, your exposure to UV rays drastically increases, making a pair of shades a must for eye protection. But really, who doesn’t enjoy wearing them? At the end of the day, a pair of sunglasses lend you the confidence you didn’t know you needed while accentuating your style. If you’ve been wanting to expand your own collection or simply need a pair to brave the climate, here are seven of our favourite designer picks that are well worth the money! 


Chanel Cat Eye

The latest iteration of the Maison’s iconic cat-eye sunglasses is a must-have as it offers gradient grey tint lenses that shield your eyes when you’re in the great outdoors. You’re also in luck if you have a round or oval face because the square frame lends more angles to your delicate facial features, making it appear longer and slimmer. Beyond that, what truly separates these shades from other styles is the unique tweed that decorates its arms.



Ray-Ban Reverse Aviator Sun

While Ray-Ban has long been known for its aviator sunglasses, the American brand keeps on pushing the limits with the new Reverse collection, featuring Vittoria Ceretti as the face of the campaign. The Ray-Ban Reverse Aviator Sun, in particular, arrives with a revolutionary reverse lens that complements the natural curve of the cheekbone without losing optical precision. The classic lenses are further enhanced with a high-performance anti-glare treatment for sharper vision, and you can cop the aviator-style sunglasses in anthracite, rose gold, or black metal frames.



Miu Miu Glimpse

The Miu Miu Glimpse encapsulates both confidence and refined elegance. As seen on A-list celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Taylor Hill, and Sydney Sweeney, the oval-shaped sunglasses include UV-protected tinted lenses and the fresh emblem of the House set on the hinge of its thick temples. These sunglasses are available in several colours, such as porcelain white and jet-black, but the tortoiseshell style caught our attention the most because it instantly evokes a sense of nostalgia. Pair it with oversized blazers and flare trousers for a timeless style! 



Carolina Herrera HER0178/S

Carolina Herrera, as we all know, loves to add pops of colour to her designs, and the HER0178/S from the Constellation series is one of the pieces that depicts the brand’s playful attitude. This opal dark crimson eyewear sports a chic square frame with glistening crystal and cabochons decorating the front for an opulent finish. Additionally, the House’s insignia is added to the temples, while the end tips are personalised with a little crystal.



BOSS 1607/S

The sporty Boss 1607/S sunglasses from the fresh ‘Active & Dynamic’ eyewear range are not only practical in colder temperatures but also make an eye-catching fashion statement. Designed with sustainability in mind, the German label crafted the shield sunglasses by using innovative materials such as bio-injected resin and bio rubber, which provide optimal comfort and grip. Moreover, it boasts high-contrast lenses for crystal-clear vision along with an appealing colour palette that nicely integrates the iconic Boss colours of black, white, and camel.



David Beckham DB1129/S

Leave it to Beckham to come up with sunglasses that bring out the confidence in gentlemen! In this case, the DB1129/S sunglasses provide much-needed pizazz with its geometric frame accented by gold, finely carved rims that extend to half of the temples. Similarly, a closer look reveals the DB monogram at the end tips. And, yes, these cool sunglasses can be customised with prescription, mirrored, or polarised lenses.



Celine Triomphe 11

You can always count on Celine to create the best round-frame sunglasses. The Celine Triomphe 11 is characterised by its sturdy, pressure-resistant acetate frame as well as smoke lenses, which have the capacity to reduce blinding brightness. Despite Celine’s minimalist aesthetic, the gold Triomphe signature on the temples brings an extra dash of luxury to the sunglasses.
