Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

From baseball caps and bracelets to luxury bags, shop accessories of all kinds at our accessories hub.

Though we might not see much of it right now, the sun has started to rear its head more frequently. We’ll eventually be spending more time outdoors, no doubt, so it’s smart to get ahead and invest in some eye protection that’s up to the job. While UV-blocking qualifications are important, it’s not just about function. Sunglasses can be a make it or break it part of a look.

And with endless shapes, tints, and materials available online, shopping for the perfect pair of shades is no easy task. Highsnobiety is well-versed in this particular buying area, and here we bring you some of the best sunglasses styles for 2020.

From classic square frames to the OTT models that’ll have all eyes on your eyes, our selection includes pieces from up-and-coming brands to eyewear from the world’s biggest fashion houses.

Set eyes on some of 2020’s best sunglasses below.

The Classics

Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

Angular, square frames are a classic shape that will always have a place in the category. Adding a chic touch to any fit, this shape is best loved for its suitability to a diverse range of faces, and fortunately enough, the more experimental movements in the sunglasses game haven’t stopped some of our favorite labels from producing some classic, four-point masterpieces.

Rectangular & Oval Frames

Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

Much like last year, smaller rectangular and oval frames remain the shape of choice for many. Taking a page from ’90s and early ’00s style, these uber-slim frames may not provide as much coverage or UV protection as a pair of sporty Oakleys, but let’s be honest, these ones are more about form than function, anyway.

Oversized

Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

Though still in contention, the narrow path forged by the tiny frame look has trailed off slightly. Small shades are not for everyone — it can be a tricky one to pull off for certain face shapes. If an antidote to small sunnies is what you need, look no further. Once reserved for the over 70s with waning eyesight, oversized shades, including frames like the bug-eye, allow for serious statement-making.

Sports Sunglasses

Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

Cycling and sports-optimized sunglasses emerged as a huge trend for 2018, but output over the past two years shows that they’re still on the agenda. Boutique and high-end cycling brands, as well as luxury labels such as Prada, continue to keep the look alive with performance-led eyewear.

A Little Extra

Highsnobiety / Julien Tell

For those not satisfied by stoic classics and unimpressed with practical specs, something a little extra is in order. This is all about loud lenses to match standout looks and the personalities that own them.

The Kaleidoscopic pair by Jacquemus is the perfect match for hazy summer nights, while Chinatown Market comes through in the extra category by stamping its signature smiley on a set of lenses.
