The 10 Best Designer sunglasses
At these prices they are an investment, but a new pair of shades is an easy way to buy into the latest catwalk trends
1. Yves Saint Laurent
Round frames aren't for everyone, thanks in part to the hippy connotations. This acetate pair is futuristic in styling though, so perfect for forward-thinkers.
2. Miu Miu
In one of the hottest shapes of the season, the pink-tinted lenses will add a romantic touch to your vision that will make everything seem to be coming up roses.
Available in four colourways the "Sonic" design was a continuation of the designer's drawings of swans and mirrors the "elegant mystery" of that majestic fowl.
4. Christian Dior
£210, 01423 520 303
Candy colours are inescapable for summer and a bright pair of sunglasses is a fun way to wear the trend if classic neutrals are more your thing clothes-wise.
Erdem Moralioglu's collection for spring/summer was a symphony of lace and florals. Here lace is encapsulated within acetate for a feminine, modern style.
6. Marc Jacobs
£219, Marc Jacobs, 01423 520 303
Aviators come in almost all shapes and sizes. This acrylic pair isn't flight regulation thanks to the oversize frame and fun and frivolous colours.
7. Louis Vuitton
Continuing the ice-cream shades throughout Marc Jacobs' spring/ summer collection, this pair has retro styling reminiscent of flight goggles with feminine curves.
Classic aviators are a perennially popular style. This luxurious pair comes replete with the house's signature check as a discreet detail on the arms.
If you're struggling to choose between this season's cat-eye or round shapes, this angled pair offers the best of both worlds and is flattering to boot.
The keyhole detail on this pair of tortoiseshell shades references classic preppy styles. Honey and brown tones will flatter blondes who may find black too harsh.
