We’re big fans of sunglasses over here at Marie Claire. Come rain or shine, we rarely leave the house without a pair of sunnies, not just to protect our eyes from what little sunshine we get here in the UK, but they’re also a simple way to give every day looks a new season feel. This Spring, there are a few key styles to have on your radar, but one that is quickly gaining traction is tinted lens aviators.

From celebrities to influencers, aviators have always been a timeless wardrobe favourite choice of eyewear. However, this season, what makes them different is the tortoiseshell frame and the addition of tinted lenses in shades including light blue, green and yellow. Unlike most sunglasses trends, tinted-lens aviators come in an array of sizes and colours to suit all face shapes, so whether you like yours classic with a light green lens (seen at Gucci) or like to go bold with a chunkier frame and blue lens (seen at Tom Ford), there's a style to suit every face shape and budget.
