TRIWA Havana Olivia tortoiseshell

You can’t go wrong with a classic cat-eye tortoiseshell frame and this Havana Olivia pair from TRIWA ($1,375) is a safe bet. For a modern 2018 look, the Crystal Klara is a fresh summer alternative. Made out of hand durable cellulose acetate, the frames have a delicate glass-like finish that looks stunning in the sunshine.

Tom Ford Samantha cat-eye black sunglasses

I know, they are huge and expensive, but hear me out. These Samantha cat-eye frames from Tom Ford ($3,500) are the glasses you buy and keep forever. They go with everything and work in all scenarios, from when you’re running to the gym late at 7am and don’t want anyone to spot your ‘I just got out of bed five minutes ago face’, to sipping an Aperol Spritz at Da Paolino in Capri. They just work, and they suit everyone. Trust me on this, my cousin, my aunt and I all walked out of a store with them in three different shades, and we look nothing alike.

Ray Ban Clubmaster folding sunglasses in black and gold

Black and gold is always a chic mix, and you can’t go wrong with Ray Ban’s original Clubmasters ($2,150). They add a little bit of finesse to a thrown-together outfit and can be dressed up or down to the beach and brunch. The folding version is my favourite because they’re easy to pack and impossible to break.

Gentle Monster LOE S3 blue acetate sunglasses

Miss your turquoise RayBan aviators and hate being seen in the same lenses as everyone else? Then this bold acetate pair by Gentle Monster ($2,200) is the perfect prescription. Hankook Kim founded the eyewear brand in 2011 in South Korea, and his designs are a staple wardrobe item for understated fashion insiders.

Jeepers Peepers flatbrow sunglasses

I prefer to invest in staple pieces then fads that disappear after a summer, and while I love flatbrow sunglasses, it’s not a style I regularly wear. This Jeepers Peepers pair ($261) tick the trend box and are fun, affordable option to wear when you’re looking to switch up your usual look.

CHIMI Tiger printed cat-eye acetate sunglasses

While I’m not totally sold on the micro-optics trend, if you’re going to go for it then you should, well… go for it. And there’s no better way to embrace the tiny-glasses movement than by adding a bit of tiger-print into the mix. Be bold, be brave, and stay in the shade, because these CHIMI sunglasses ($1,365) offer zero protection against the sun but will definitely turn heads.

9 / 11

Chloe Carlina sunglasses

Summer shades don’t get any sweeter than Chloe’s signature Carlinas in pink ($3,535). Perfect if your holiday isn’t going quite as planned and you need a spare pair of rose-tinted glasses to go with your large glass of rosé.

LBC in Rose Gold Mirror

Handcrafted in Hong Kong with a Californian influence, Peppertint brings a colourful, alternative take. With a handmade frame, a stainless steel, rose gold frame, and a convenient leather pouch, these LBC Peppertint sunnies are ideal for travelling to warmer weather.

Paper Shade Moonshade Small in Orange

These Moonshade glasses by Paper Shade ($119) are made from recycled paper and are a fraction of the price of most designer pairs. The lenses are UV400 and they use non-toxic glue to ensure their production minimises the impact of the environment. The HK based brand also offers a customisation service for bulk orders, perfect for junk parties, beach events, and festivals.
