Finding a great pair of pair of sunglasses should be your priority style staple heading into the warmer months. Not only do they provide much-needed protection for your eyes from harmful UV rays, but the right pair of shades — whether round or squared — is the sartorial finishing touch to every outfit. Should you be lounging poolside, wingmanning weddings, or even stylishly running errands, sunglasses are the make-or-break accessory in every man’s wardrobe.
If you lean toward more traditional styles, you can’t go wrong with a universally flattering wayfarer, aviator, or beach-ready clubmaster. More trend-savvy?
