Those Matrix-style small frame sunglasses were everywhere at one point — and I'm glad we're not there anymore. While not really achieving their purpose and fully protecting eyes from the sun, tiny shades also tend to make you look like you've just walked out of a Berlin bar you've been sat in since 2018. Fortunately, oversized sunglasses are back.
High fashion houses, including large sunglasses stalwart Gucci, are on board. But so are sports lens labels like Oakley — which recently revived its unashamedly massive Sutro from the depths of its '80s eyewear archive. They've been a pretty consistent look in womenswear for some time, partly thanks to the aforementioned Gucci, but big sunglasses for men are having a moment.
This summer demands loud looks. And what better way to start than by going loud up top? Start as you mean to go on — big fits will follow big sunglasses.

Bottega Veneta Sunglasses
If you're not yet convinced about big sunglasses, let Bottega's pair be your gateway to the world of oversized shades. Adding volume via the frame, rather than the lens, these aren't quite all-out '80s visor.
Oakley x Highsnobiety Sutro Lite
But if all-out '80s visor is what you're hunting for, then look no further. Oakley's retro Sutro returns in the form of the Sutro light, a collab with Highsnobiety that plays host to eye-protecting tech and bold statements.
Gucci has been on the large sunglasses tip for decades, and you've got to respect that unwavering support for the style. Laced with tortoiseshell brown and gold-tone details, these sunglasses do decadence in a big way.
Rick Owens Shielding Sunglasses
Woah these are wild. They're also further evidence of the return of big cycling sunglasses. Here for it.
Kuboraum Oversized Sunglasses
Berlin's Kuboraum shows its penchant for the modernist aesthetic once more, this time in a pair of sunglasses that let you channel your inner Hepburn.
Saint Laurent SL 68 Sunglasses
Offering a similar vibe to the Kuboraum above, but in white, these Saint Laurent are perfect for that Italy trip you finally get to take in 2032.
Grey Ant Gold Dempsey Sunglasses
The Aviator, Hollywood's favorite pair of sunglasses, gets the oversized treatment by Grey Ant.
