We all know that sunglasses are a year-round favourite and that a cold and gloomy day won’t stop you from adding yet another pair to your shopping cart. We also tend to get that extra bit more excited to purchase one or three pairs when the sun comes out more often than before. The eight sunglasses on our wish list for summer are right here, and ready to shop:

1.Tinted lenses

This shape is timely, and so is the shade. Futuristic and retro at the same time, this pair of glasses from The Fix is a win.

2. Fiery red frames

A pop culture favourite since the 50s, but this shape has a distinct 80s flavour that’s guaranteed to be everywhere this summer.

3. Super small shades

Tiny sunglasses are a throwback to the 1990s, and we’re loving these little bottlecaps. Pair with a beret as seen in our October editorial, and you’re away.

4. Tortoise shell cat-eyes

Glamorous and feminine, these cat-eyes go with literally anything, but we’d pair them with other trendy ‘new neutrals’, as seen in the opening trends pages of our latest issue.

5. Chain reaction

A must-have if you’re out and about. We’ve chosen these as our faves for attending Fashion Week this October.
