These days, we expect a lot from our sunglasses. Not only do they need to shield our eyes from the harshness of the summer sun, but they also need to say something about who we are. Checking out Warby Parker's extensive summer catalogue, it's clear they understand that sunglasses reflect not just UV rays, but also our personal sense of style. That's why they have something for everyone. Whether you're seeking a modern classic, bold new look, or something fashion-forward to compliment your favorite summer outfits, Warby Parker's 100% UV-protected lenses have you covered in more ways than one.
It was almost impossible to narrow down to a list of 5 favorites, but we did our best. Scroll down to see our top picks!
1. Fletcher in Black Matte Eclipse
These back-to-the-future frames feature straight lines and a modernist flat brow, perfect for achieving a clean but fashionable look. Stylish and minimalist, the Fletcher is a twist on classic square frames worn by legends like Buddy Holly, and is most suitable for round or oval-shaped faces. Everyone looks great in matte black, and with olive green lenses, these sunglasses are the epitome of cool.
2. Raider (large)
A part of the new Quintessentials line featuring timeless looks, Raider is a modern twist on classic aviator sunglasses. With a teardrop lenses, a straight brow, and shiny metal wiring, Raider large frames have a chiseling effect that flatters any face shape (though those with narrower faces may want to try Raider). These frames are perfect for adding an effortless sense of style to even the simplest outfits, and may be the only summer accessory you need.
3. Haskell limited edition
With attractively slim arms, a keyhole bridge, and a classic round lenses, the Haskell is a frame for the ages. Now, you can get these perennially flattering frames in vibrant hues like Ruby, Lemon Meringue, and Amethyst Crystal (these are awesome with violet gradient lenses), and also feel good about the fact that the proceeds will go to The Trevor Project and Lambda Legal, two LGBTQ organizations that strive for inclusiveness and equality.
A wide, chunky construction and round silhouette make the Flynn a super charming summer frame. We love the attention to detail, like the adorable keyhole bridge and slightly retro look. If you're going for beachy and fun, opt for the pretty Primrose crystal. For something more classic and modern, try the Canyon Tortoise with blue reflective frames.
5. Tilley in Petal Tortoise
The Tilley is a more glamorous take on the classic cat-eye frame. With oversized proportions and an intellectual look, this serious but fashionable frame offers a high-powered and feminine look, perfect for corporate powerhouses or aspiring magazine editors. The Petal Tortoise is so pretty and elegant, you'll want to wear these sunglasses all day.
