B Sunglasses are celebrating all things summer. We’ve teamed up with lifestyle blogger Louis Armstrong to present to you the top summer sunglasses styles for 2018. All the sunglasses are leading trends this season and we’ve picked a variety of frames to suit different face shapes and cater to different tastes. If you’re looking for the perfect pair of sunnies for summer, then read on to find out more…
Last year Louis’s blog LifeWithLouis, brought to you two videos detailing the top sunglasses and glasses picks for 2017. It was met with an amazing response and Louis has created an updated video for summer 2018 to help you stay on trend again this year. For the 2018 men’s sunglasses, we’ve chosen five top styles for summer as well as included two of our best sellers from leading eyewear brand Ray-Ban.
Tom Ford round frames
These shiny rose gold frames by Tom Ford are Louis’s favourite style from the selection. Tom Ford is synonymous with sophistication. Made for the modern gentleman, each expertly crafted piece by Tom Ford is effortlessly cool. These lightweight sunglasses are both classic and modern: with retro round frames and fresh gold green lenses that stand out from the crowd. The chic simplicity of round frames mean come back season after season in different variations and this year they’ve been a leading runway style again. Tom Ford eyewear is presented in an equally elegant brown velvet case which is perfect for summer travel.
Flat top frames by Gucci
Another favourite from Louis, the Gucci Flat Top Pilot frames are one of the coolest frames on the market this summer. Gucci are known for their bold and creative style, and each season their innovative campaigns make us want to recreate our whole wardrobe. Sculpted in black acetate, these Gucci frames are versatile and simple but striking. Wear these pilot frames this summer and you’re guaranteed to be the most stylish in any circle.
Ray-Ban’s classic Justin sunglasses
The Justin frames are one of B Sunglasses’s continuous top sellers. We decided to include top sellers into this guide because we know that not everyone can afford new sunglasses every summer. Versatile frames like Ray-Ban’s Justins never go out of style, they are a continuous top pick on our site, and therefore are a good investment for those who know they need a pair of sunnies that will last. The matte black frames are contemporary and will go with any outfit for any occasion. Work, holidays, or weddings, they will add something to your outfit. Plus, the polarised lenses make life easier, as they prevent glare and improve clarity and ease of vision. If you’re looking for a pair of sunglasses that are practical, affordable and timelessly stylish, then the Justin frames are perfect for you.
Louis was joined in Portugal by his girlfriend Francis, who talks us through the top summer picks for women. Again, we picked five modern and bold styles for the summer as well as our two best sellers year after year.
Cut out frames by Guess
Our favourite look on Francis was these Guess rose gold frames. They’re unique, glamorous and as some summery as they come with pink gradient lenses matching the rose gold frames. The rounded cateye style with cut out detailing on the frames is quirky and completely individual. Guess are known for their creative and out-there luxurious fashion but offer their products at affordable prices making Guess eyewear a win win for the summer.
Prada’s mirrored lenses
A less colourful pair than the Guess frames, but still equally as unique, the Prada irregular pilot sunglasses are a bold pick for summer. The simple silver frames and silver polarised mirror lenses make these Prada sunnies a flexible choice for summer because they’ll go with any outfit. The eye-catching edginess comes from the shape of the design, with a distinctive double bridge detail and sharp pointed frames that offer an urban update of the classic pilot silhouette. Polarised lenses are always a smart choice as they protect your eyes from glare making the sunglasses an easy wear in all conditions. The pair are presented with an authentic leather effect Prada sunglasses case to keep your pair in solid condition throughout all your summer adventures.
Classic round Erika frames by Ray-Ban
As previously explained, we included two of B Sunglasses’s best sellers in this guide because we understand it’s not possible for everyone to update their eyewear each season. These round Erika frames return just as strong every season though, making them a good investment piece to add to your wardrobe. The Erika frames are lightweight, with thin metal arms and an acetate matte frame and earpieces. The keyhole detailing on the bridge is contemporary and sophisticated and they add character to any look. Erika frames come in endless colour variations so you can opt for a more versatile style like this Havana, or you can play around with your look and go for a something a little quirkier like these…
