With summer in full swing, make sure you’ve got the perfect pair of sunglasses to shade your eyes from harmful UV rays and keep you looking cool in the heat.
Whether you go for a classic frame – aviators, wayfarers, cat’s eye or Lennon-style rounds one - or a contemporary twist on all old favourite (gold-mirrored lenses are our latest must-have), we’ve got it covered. We've scouted-out a range of sunglasses; from New Look’s under-a-fiver mirrored wayfarers right up to Atelier’s customisable cat’s eye frames, we hope you’ll find a pair you like.

Ray-Ban’s Clubmaster sunglasses are modern classics that’ll work all year round. If that’s too predictable, try hot new British eyewear brand Kite to stand out from the crowd. Or, if you want sunnies that’ll be a talking point, try Topshop’s festival-friendly Flower Power shades.
