We can all agree that a chic pair of sunnies is the ultimate summer accessory—one of those things that we just can’t live without. And while we try to take good care of them, all that tossing into our bag and transporting to the beach means that by the end of the season, our sunglasses are typically a little worse for wear (or, um, lost). That’s why we’re not into spending ridiculous amounts of money on new frames. Enter these stylish pairs from Amazon that look fabulous but don’t cost a fortune. We’ll take one of each, please.


Editors’ Pick: WearMePro Polarized Metal Frame Pilot Style Aviator Sunglasses

The Facts:

  • Timeless shape
  • Optional mirrored reflective lens
  • 100 percent UVB + UVA protection

You can never go wrong with a pair of oversize aviators. That’s because they’re universally flattering and seriously cool. Choose from a classic black lens or really go for those Top Gun vibes with a mirrored look. “I love the classic shape and matte black rims of these sunglasses,” says PureWow’s associate managing editor, Catrina. “In the past, I’ve struggled to find a simple pair of aviators that can pull together an outfit without any bells and whistles. Finally, I found them—these will never go out of style, plus you can’t beat that price!”

Best Value: Livhò Retro Vintage Narrow Cat Eye Sunglasses

The Facts:

  • Retro design
  • 100 percent UV400 eye protection
  • Available in a variety of colors

These trendy frames only look like you spent over $100 on them. But this affordable style is practically indestructible (thanks to sturdy frames and solid metal hinges) and comfortable, too (no nose-pinching, here). While black will never go out of style, there are 22 other colors to choose from, if that’s your thing. “I was hesitant to hop on board the small sunglasses trend, and certainly didn’t want to spend tons of money on something I might not like,” says Sarah, an editor at PureWow. “This cat-eye pair looks (and feels) way more expensive than $10, and I know of at least three people who’ve bought the same pair after seeing mine.” Copying is the highest form of flattery, after all.

Most Popular: VeBrellen Polarized Sunglasses

The Facts:

  • Mirrored lens
  • Polarized to reduce glare
  • Lightweight

From the front, these lightweight sunnies give off all the Malibu chic feels. Fom the side, they’re even more stylish with the option of silver or gold-colored frames. Great for days at the beach or hanging by the pool, these polarized glasses are designed to reduce glare from the water and guard against harmful UVA and UVB rays. The oversize lenses work to lessen reflections from glass, which makes them ideal for your summer road trip needs. The bigger the sunglasses, the harder it is to lose them (at least in theory, anyway).
