Summer has arrived, and whether the next few months have you down for enjoying the sunny climes at home or abroad, you’ll need to start getting prepared for what will hopefully be some long stints in the sun.

Get your summer style off to the right start with a pair of designer sunglasses- from cultured classics to sporty pro performers, we’ve got them all; so whether you’re going for a look that would make Maverick from Top Gun look jealous, or chasing a frame that would match up to the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins’ exacting standards, then look no further than this hand run down of our favourite sunglasses:

Carrera Champion White/Red Sunglasses

No matter where you go, you just can’t escape Carrera. Originally starting out as a snow sports brand, their knowledge of lens technology, coupled with a penchant for retro styling has made them one of the most chased eyewear brands on the planet. Adorning the faces of Hollywood A-listers, sports stars and models, Carrera’s flair for a vintage visor look has made them hot property. The Champion frame is one of their most iconic styles, and this piece looks crisp and clean in white with a red trim. A brown gradient lens tint gives them a feel of premium design, and gold Carrera branding on the nose bridge backs it right up, making these sunglasses fit to be taken pretty much anywhere- from Hackney to the French Riviera.

Ray Ban Aviator Metal Crystal Lens Sunglasses

A sunglass that needs no introduction, the aviator is a member of summer frame royalty. One of the original pieces that rocketed Ray Ban to fame, the aviator was originally developed as a pilot’s sunglass, which resulted in that iconic teardrop lens shape that provides a high quality level of protection. Metal frames offer a sturdy feel which separates the original aviator from flimsy imitations; whilst a polarised lens gives an even greater level of protection that is truly authentic to a Ray Ban aviator frame.
