round shaped sunglasses

If your old pair of specs are looking a bit worse for wear (or you’re simply bored of them), it might be time to get some new prescription sunglasses online. There are so many different styles to choose from, so we’ve helped you out by narrowing them down to the cream of the crop.

Here are 15 frames to consider wearing this summer:

 

Tortoiseshell

Fashionistas, rejoice! Tortoiseshell pairs well with virtually any outfit, and can take a plain look to the next level. Its marbled pattern and neutral brown and black shades make it work particularly well with simple block coloured clothing.

 

Aviator

Aviators are the perfect prescription sunglasses online pick for would-be pilots and Tom Cruise wannabes. They’re distinctive, bold and masculine – and they’re extremely good at doing what they’re meant to do, i.e. blocking out glare.

 

Heart-shaped

Let your inner heart-face emoji run free with some heart-shaped sunnies. Cute, colourful and pretty, they’re not just for little girls – they’re for anyone who wants to see the world through rose-tinted lenses.

 

Tiny

The 90s are back, with Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and a whole generation of Instagram influencers sporting tiny prescription sunglasses online. They’re an easy way to make any outfit instantly edgy. For extra street-style, wear them low on the nose (because let’s be real; you’re not wearing them for UV protection).

 

Oversized

Alternatively, if you want to make a bold statement – or need something with a little more sun protection, a pair of oversized prescription sunglasses online might be the ones for you. Dramatic and fun, they’re available in a range of colours, patterns and shapes, so you’re sure to find your perfect match.

 

Rectangle

Rectangle sunnies are fast becoming the ultimate in cool-girl style, thanks to celebs like Priyanka Chopra and Olivia Kulpo showing them off. They particularly suit people with a high nose bridge. Choose a pair in a bright colour like red or orange for the perfect all-in-one accessory.

 

Round

If you’re all about the 70s, consider buying a pair of round prescription sunglasses online. Channel your inner John Lennon with these quirky specs – they come in a range of colours and tints to suit every flower child.

 

Cat-eye

Cat-eye sunnies are one of the few styles that have never seemed to go out of date. They’re stylish, chic and effortless, and work with almost any outfit. In 2019 they’ve been updated slightly, so you’ll likely find them with more exaggerated angles and stripes.

 

Sporty

If you do a lot of sports, you’d do well to invest in a solid pair of sporty prescription sunglasses online. Designed to be lightweight yet sturdy, a good pair will offer excellent glare and UV-protection along with a slight wrap to block light from the sides.

 

Hexagon

Hexagonal frames have become trendy recently as they suit most face shapes. They’re a great prescription sunglasses online option for people who find square and round lenses to be too harsh for them. They’re ideal for younger folks.

 

Audio

For people who want to be a little more extra, audio sunnies are the latest trend taking the world by storm. They’re exactly what they sound like; sunnies with inbuilt speakers that let you listen to music or take calls while you wear them. The only downside is that they’re currently not available for prescription lenses.

 

Wayfarer

Ray-Ban’s Wayfarers have enjoyed a second revival thanks to their iconic look. Their classic shape can be paired with a range of colours and patterns in order to get the perfect pair for you. They suit men, women and children alike, making them a great gift option, too.
