The holy grail.

If you’re considering making one sunglasses purchase this summer, there’s one designer that has every trending style nailed. You guessed it: Prada.

Perhaps you’ve noticed the angled cat-eye style all over Instagram and on the polished faces of Fashion Week attendees across the globe. It was Prada that set the trend for the androgynous shades, and trust me when I say they’re not going anywhere fast.

The luxury label added eyewear to its roster in 2000, and like much of the designer’s accessories, it wasn’t long before they made their mark.

These days the unique styles like the aforementioned cat-eyes, aviators and sleek rectangular pairs set the eyewear trends for the season and count stars like Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Amal Clooney and Rihanna as fans.

In fact, Kardashian recently sported a pair of Y2K-inspired rectangular shades from the brand at Milan Fashion Week, proving she doesn’t just wear Balenciaga after all.

Frankly, investing in a pair of Prada’s is a no brainer. If they’re good enough for Kim K, they’re good enough for us – and unlike the designer’s nylon bags, they won’t set you back thousands.

If you’re wondering which pair to go for, take a look at your face shape. Oval faces suit the majority of frames, so you have the luxury of picking from the bunch. Oversized shades and aviators work particularly well.

If you have a heart-shaped face, rounded or cat-eye styles look great, whilst rectangular shades will balance out rounded faces.

Last but not least, square-shaped faces should avoid square-shaped sunglasses. Instead, try cat-eye, aviators or rounded styles for the most flattering results.

So without further ado, here are the best Prada shades for SS22 available to shop now. With a whole lot of tortoiseshell, angular and sleek styles to choose from, here are the best of the bunch.
