20 Sunglasses That’ll Make You Look Cool As A Cucumber

Featured Image Source

Sunglasses are a summertime essential for everyone and not only because they protect our eyes from the glaring sun rays – they look cool. Stop trying to act like you don’t feel at least a little glamorous when you slide your oversized shades on your face! You should feel like your look is elevated when wearing a great pair of glam goggles. 

Just remember, style is not the only thing to consider when buying sunglasses – double check that the lenses offer the proper protection from the sun’s harsh rays.

Before you even consider buying your summer sunnies, make sure the glasses “Offer 100% or UV400 protection, meaning the lenses will be blocking 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB radiation,” says Good Housekeeping.

Forbes explains further: “Because not all lenses offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, so be sure to double-check the lens details if you want to be assured of that — and stick with polarized options.”

Now that we have the necessary UV stats covered, let’s get into the fun part – picking your particular style.

Sunglasses are a summer staple for women with so many different styles to choose from, and this year is no exception! But with so many different shapes, colors, and styles to choose from, it can be tricky to find the perfect pair of shades. 

Whether you want classic Ray-Ban’s, aviator sunglasses, or something more trendy and unique like cat eye, square frames or super-oversized Elton John-ish sunnies, there’s definitely a pair of shades that will suit your taste. And, since they’re such an important part of your summer wardrobe, it’s important to find a pair that you love putting on your face!

We put together a list of the best women’s sunglasses this summer – keep scrolling to find your new favorite pair!
