If you’re looking to make a style statement, this fresh take on the classic Wayfarer is a super cool option for the summer. Featuring a wood-grain outer print and a unique surf patchwork print on the inner, these Ray-bans were made to be worn with a white tee and your best pair of deck shoes.

2. Paris Cream Tortoise Shell Sunglasses by Prism

Super-cool Brit label Prism never fail to deliver, with trend-friendly styles that will still look fresh next summer, and the summer after. Offering 100% UV protection and a unique cream tortoise shell design, these specs will look good with every t-shirt and shorts combo you can dream up.

3. Lunettes Homme by RETROSUPERFUTURE X A.P.C.

If you’re looking for something a little different, these frames offer a hint of a hexagonal shape, which proves surprisingly flattering on most face shapes. Our favorite design from the RETROSUPERFUTURE X A.P.C. collaboration, the classical black frames and smoky lenses will work with your entire summer wardrobe.

4. Limited Edition Kazu Kokubo Signature Series Frogskins by Oakleys

If your style is more sporty than sartorial, Oakley’s latest ‘froggies’ are the frames for you. Inspired by prolific snowboarder Kazuhiro Kazu, this lightweight design features unique bronze lenses for increased visual contrast and vision in medium-bright sun, and a classical brown tortoise design, with a simple graphical splice on the interior; perfect from slope to street.

5. 6008 by Carrera

We love the double-centre strip design of these Carreras. Offering stylish circular lenses in a graduated brown, and a lightweight metal and tortoiseshell design, these frames will look great teamed with your favorite white shirt and Chinos.
