And just in time for Coachella weekend two.

Sunglasses are a style staple no matter the time of year, but as the temperatures rise and we’re welcomed to brighter skies, these fashion accessories we hold so dear become, frankly put, crucial. Like, you can’t see a thing when you go outside levels of essential.

And we’re okay with that. Sunnies can elevate a simple, everyday outfit to superstar status. They can even make you look better lounging by the pool or strutting your stuff on the beach – and this considering you’re likely not wearing much in these situations to begin with.

So in the spirit of warmer weather (and UV eye protection) we’ve rounded up eight pairs of sunglasses that we’ll be adding to our shopping baskets and faces this season.
