We can all agree that a chic pair of sunnies makes for the ultimate accessory that we can’t live without. Try though we may to take good care of our favorites, however, all of that bag-tossing and beach-toting means that by the end of the season, our sunglasses are typically a little worse for wear (or, um, lost). You could say that we’ve finally learned our lesson after our eighth pair of expensive designer ones mysteriously vanished…into thin air, but what matters is that we’ve moved on to wiser fashion choices with inexpensive, trendy selections that don’t skimp on style—aka the best cheap sunglasses.
After all, they'll still shield your eyes from the sun’s glaring rays, with some even offering UV400 protection (that's the highest level available, FYI), and look great on your face, too. We've scoured the web to find ten pairs that will do just that—but first, a bit more on how to find the right pair below.
