A close up of the new Faherty August sunglasses in black.

Sunglasses are one of the most underrated accessories. Just hear me out: Despite their power to spruce up your look year-round, most of us keep them tucked away until spring and summer. But that's about to change. Faherty just launched its first-ever sunglasses collection, and you'll want to wear the laid-back styles all year long. The best part is all 16 pairs are crafted from 100 percent recycled materials and are less than $150, so it's a win-win for the environment *and* your bank account.

When it comes to the Byron sunglasses ($148), though, I would be willing to buy them no matter the cost. Not only do they have that classic aviator shape that makes you look effortlessly cool, but like all the new sunglasses, they feature polarized lenses, which are chemically treated to reduce the sun's glare and other harsh light, so there's less strain on your eyes. Impressed yet? Well, you will be once you discover that the pairs come in two versatile colors (gold and gunmetal) that will elevate any fit. Plus, you'll get a soft drawstring case and a polishing cloth with the shades, which make them easy to pack and clean on the go.


BTW: The brand has a great return and exchange policy. (More specifically, you'll have 60 days to return or exchange 'em for any reason.) So, if you think your new sunglasses aren't up to standards, you can exchange them for a new pair or get a refund. However, if you plan on snagging the All Day sunglasses ($98), that will be the least of your worries. For starters, they have the retro-classic vibe of Wayfarers but are way more functional, thanks to a foldable design that makes them super convenient to carry around on a daily. Because trust—you'll want to wear them on repeat.

Looking for something a little more trendy? Say no more. The Weber sunglasses ($148) are super sleek and edgy with chunky square frames that won't go unnoticed. If you want a more subdued look, go for the black pair; if you want to stand out a bit more, I vote tortoise. Either way, you can't go wrong.

These sunglasses also feature an Easter egg of sorts. While all of them have the brand's Sun and Waves logo, only select styles are adorned with a signature surf stripe design on the hinges (not limited to this Stinson style). That attention to detail caught my eye, and I'm sure I'm not the only one, so if you're interested, you'll want to act fast before word gets out and these sell out.
