Design by Morgan McMullen

Before you start shopping for sunglasses, you should find the right style for your face. Once you're comfortable with a classic style—for example, a simple black frame—you can consider more trend-driven pairs in similar shapes, from Kardashian-esque ski-inspired sunglasses to angular cat-eye shades. But no matter what kind of shades you're looking for this season, your favorite brands have you covered with both stylish new designs and fresh updates to the classics. We're big believers in there being no such thing as too many pairs of sunglasses, and if you so choose, you can own everyday sunglasses, pool-day sunglasses, early-evening sunglasses, special-occasion sunglasses, and so many more. We found the best new shades to shield your face for summer (and potentially fall/winter). Check out 30 pairs that are oh so easy on the eyes.
