Last Updated on March 3, 2023

Finding the best sunglasses for summer is just as fun as wearing them to the beach. You have so many choices, from 70s-style oversized frames to classic Top Gun aviators.

I’m quite picky when it comes to sunglasses, I have quite a round face, so I only choose frames that flatter my face shape. That’s why I always go for square or rectangular frames.

The best sunglasses of 2023 is all about bold and playful designs. So, picture oversized frames, tinted lenses, and colourful frames.

Another big trend this year is 70s-style shades. Basically retro frames like tortoiseshell sunglasses and square oversized frames. They also offer a subtle way to add a dramatic flair to your summer wardrobe without going overboard.

A wave of Y2K nostalgia also has a chokehold on 2023, especially futuristic fashion. Pinterest reports a 70% increase in searches for “futuristic glasses”, with racer frames expected to be a major trend.

With an eclectic mix of sunglasses trends, you will be sure to find the perfect pair of sunglasses that will not only protect your eyes but also elevate your fashion game.
