16 Of The Hottest Sunglasses For Summer

Be a shady lady with our pick of the best shades trending right now.

‘Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around.’ That irrefutable wisdom comes from one who knows: queen of the mega-shade herself, Victoria Beckham. The biggest stars from across the globe and spanning the decades have long understood the power of a knock-out pair of glamourous sunglasses, from Audrey Hepburn and, famously, Jackie O to the likes of Lady Gaga today. Why? Well, they usefully hide late nights and tiredness, of course – but it’s more than that. There is an instant, transformative chic when you don a pair that’s right for you simply, we guess, because they just make you feel good.

The sunglasses that are trending right now range from square styles to cats’ eyes to – as ever – the timeless classic. We bring you the best of them – from the high-end to the high-street – and leave you with the words of the inimitable Jack Nicholson: ‘With my sunglasses on, I’m Jack Nicholson. Without them, I’m fat and sixty.’ We’ll always love you Jack, but it’s true: you can’t deny the power of the shade.
