  • Despite the lockdown, spring is definitely kicking in, with days become (almost) unbearably sunny. So with the view of being able to enjoy them soon, we thought we’d round-up the best sunglasses for spring/summer 2020.

    But let’s be honest, they’re not just a seasonal trend, they’re an all-year-round must. Even when it’s not sunny, they’re still an impossibly chic way to hide those under eye bags after a night out.

    SS20 sunglasses trends

    This season, they’re cooler than ever. Sunglasses are the kind of thing you can justify spending on — bear in mind, if you buy them right, you’ll have them forever (read: Céline cat eye sunglasses). But, if you’re looking for a quick fix, there are pairs on the high street we’d wear for seasons too.

    In terms of shapes, you’ve got the two iconic styles beloved by all: aviators and cat-eyes, though they are getting a makeover.

    The classic bottle green and mirror aviator sunglasses will never go out of style, but this season, the offering is much more retro, with tortoiseshell frames and sepia lenses giving us all the 70s feels.

    On the other side of things, if you want a bit of a departure from your classic black cat eye sunglasses, try OTT frames. Think loud prints, 3D detailing, glitter and gems. There’s no such thing as too much in this instance. Why not check out some of our favourite sunglasses styles on the Marie Claire Edit 

    If you don’t fall in either of those two camps, then try any of the other trends around, from round to square, 70s style to 90s, all of which you can shop below.
