Retro style is back in a big way this season (did you notice the varsity jacket trend?!), and whether your inspo is sourced from Audrey Hepburn or your favorite Pink Lady, thanks to the new Retro Revival collection from eyewear brand Eyebuydirect, you can channel them both with ease.

The new collection, which includes both sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses, features 15 different frame styles, ranging from the Audrey-esque Dora sunglasses (from $52) to the classic tortoiseshell Adzo pair (from $65) (which totally gives off a dark academia vibe)—all starting at under $70. Not to mention, the brand's running a sale now where you can score 40 percent off of orders $60 and up when you use code SPRING40 at checkout, so if you've got your eyes on more than one pair, this is the perfect time to snap 'em all up.

If you want to feel like you stepped off the set of Breakfast at Tiffany's don't miss the chance to scoop up these aformentioned cat-eye sunglasses (from $52) that manage to feel both timeless and on-trend at the same time. I also adore the ultra-classy look of the Channing sunglasses (from $59) that appear to have been plucked off the head of a 1970s Jackie O., as well as this Neve pair (from $55) with a total John Lennon vibe. But the pair that takes the cake for me is the Carrie Wayfarer sunglasses (from $62), which I could totally see Ms. Bradshaw herself tossing on for a day of shoe shopping.

No matter which frame you choose, you'll be able to fully customize the lenses, with the option of selecting standard or prescription-strength lenses (which come at just a slightly higher cost), as well as mirrored, polarized or color gradient finishes. The best part? They all have an anti-scratch coating to keep them looking as good as new. The glasses are also crafted from durable materials like acetate and metal, so you can wear them for years to come. As PureWow Senior Commerce Editor (and fan of the brand) Stephanie Maida says, "I was recently introduced to Eyebuydirect, and already have a ton of their glasses in my rotation. They're great quality, and have proven durable on multiple trips in my carry-on. It's also worth noting that I've found them to be so easy to wipe clean compared to some of my other glasses, which have gotten one fingerprint on them and have been ruined forever."

Now all that's left to decide is which pair(s) you'll be scooping up to channel your favorite throwback icon *and* keep your eyes protected all summer long.
