There’s certainly more to a summer wardrobe than your choice of sunglasses, but it’s a good place to start. After all, they are the sort of thing you’ll be reaching for day after day in the warmer months. The fact that you’ll be wearing them on an almost daily basis is also something you’ll want to keep in mind when you’re picking out a new pair. Here are just five that are perfect for the job.

Fleming: The Sophisticated Round-Frames

If you want to look like you’ve just stepped out of the pages of a 1990s magazine (by way of an editorial inspired by the 1960s), then round frame sunglasses are the way to go. Inspired by the Brit Pop era, these Fleming shades have a bold profile and are fitted with rivets at the temple which nod to contemporary styles. If you look a little closer, you’ll spot that the arms are crafting from contrasting acetate.

Foster: The Modern Classics

Updating the classics is one of those things that’s easier said than done. But when it’s done well, well, it looks a lot like these Foster frames. A close cousin to classic aviator-style frames, these sunglasses come in a navigator shape which became popular a few years later and are distinguished by their squared-off, slightly oversized lenses. Available in matte black or polished silver, they’re a timeless pick.
