Summer sunglasses are a staple item to protect you from the sun’s rays while also looking like a fashion icon! The perfect cross between function and fashion, these summer sunglasses are a must-have to show off your personal style and make a statement. Whether you’re dressing up or running for your morning coffee this summer, these 10 sunglasses will for sure keep you looking trendy and classic this season!
1. Geometric Sunglasses
If you’re bored of wearing the same style of round sunglasses, but you like the way they look on your face, then these are definitely the ones for you! They come in all different shapes and sizes such as an octagon shape, hexagon shape, and even circular. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner rock this style all the time! The best part about geometric sunglasses is how easily you can throw them on and instantly you will look straight out of a fashion magazine.
This has been a trend for a couple years now, but it still remains one of the most go-to summer sunglasses! Oversized glasses add a little bit of drama and character to your overall look. Since they do cover most of your face, they are able to hide blemishes or hide your no-makeup morning face! No other pair of sunglasses can do that! You can find oversized sunglasses in any shape that fits your face or you prefer, making them extremely versatile to whatever your style maybe! They are also the perfect sunglasses for a cute summer Instagram post or even a festival look.

3. 90’s Skinny Sunglasses
The 90’s skinny summer sunglasses have been around for so long! They remind me a little of the early 2000’s Lizzie Mcguire style! They have been on the come up and making statements on runways all over. Although they are not the most practical sunglasses, they will keep you looking extremely stylish this summer. They look great in Instagram photos too! Back in 2017, Bella Hadid has been seen wearing this style with just about every look from athleisure, to the red carpet, she had this tiny accessory. They say a lot without being overly bold!
John Lennon started this trend back in the ’90s and we just cannot get enough! Round glasses are quirky and edgy, giving you the perfect summer sunglasses for selfies! They come in all different frame colors and styles, along with colored lenses. The style that seems to be taking over the shelves at stores and summer runways are ombre lensed circle glasses. They are super trendy and easily match with a basic tee, a bathing suit, or even a summer dress. If you’re headed out to a music festival these are a must-have in every suitcase!
The aviator-style sunglasses is one of the oldest styles dating back to the 1930s! They are the most classic style and continue to be one of Ray-Bans hottest selling frames! Ray-Ban even allows you to customize your own on the website to make them truly your own! The aviator style has a teardrop-shaped lens that is versatile with most round and oval-shaped faces. The frame is thin, which makes the lenses stand out. I personally love to rock these a little bit oversized, giving off a super trendy, but classic vibe!
6. Flat Top Sunglasses
This style is extremely bold and edgy, however, it is being seen in more and more places! As summer gets closer, you will definitely be seeing these on your feed or even around town! This style is boxy and oversized, but they are universal to all face shapes! They have a straight and flat top with a rounded bottom. These cover most of your face, giving you extra protection against the sun and hide most blemishes, which is an added bonus! These would be the perfect festival sunglasses!
7. Two-Tone Lenses
The two-tone lense will be a new trend in summer sunglasses, but they will not fail to make you look amazing! You can find these lenses in just about any frame style including all the styles above! This look is an easy way to bring an accessory from plain to stylish! They cover your eyes, but show off a little bit of your cheeks which gives you a flirty innocence! These summer sunglasses give off a badass vibe that will for sure turn heads this summer!
Square sunglasses give off a retro and dominant vibe, while also maintaining a girly flare. There are many different types of square sunglasses, ranging from Ray-Bans best selling Clubmasters and wayfares, to plain oversized and chunky square frames. This shape reminds me a lot of the style sunglasses that the Kardashian’s wear. Although these have been trending for a while, they continue to stay extremely stylish and trendy.

9. Mirrored Lenses
Mirrored lenses are very trendy right now and offer great protection from the sun while feeling mysterious and futuristic. These lenses have a reflective coating that stops most of the sun’s rays and will have people wondering where you’re looking! The lenses act as a privacy feature because it turns into a one-way mirror. The mirrored lenses will for sure be a hit this summer and your friends will definitely ask to check how they look in your frames!
Symbol summer sunglasses are currently trending right now. They make for the cutest Instagram posts and add a pop of color and attitude to all outfits. This summer, these shades will for sure show off your fun-loving self! They come in hearts, daisy’s, and even flames! When I think of the ultimate festival or outdoor concert sunglasses, these are hands down them; however, these are on the cheaper end, so they will not protect as much as a more expensive pair.
