36 best sunglasses for women in 2021 and 9 trends to buy now



Sunglasses can be a small accessory, but they have a big impact. A good pair can elevate your outfit and style, but the best sunglasses for women can boost your mood, too. After a year spent mostly indoors, this spring and summer is calling to get out and you’ll need a new pair of sunglasses when you do.

So what does summer have in store for glasses? Daily exuberance in the image of the optimistic fashion of the season. On the catwalk, the season has brought us brightly colored clothes and quirky prints, and for sunglasses that means a pair of eyeglasses that make a splash.

Among the best deals, shop for pairs with square rims and colorful tinted lenses or cheeky cat eyes designed to look like a new classic. Or consider a style that offers an original take on a flagship trend like oversized ’60s mod sunglasses or retro aviators. If you want your glasses to make a statement that everyone can hear, go for a pair that doubles as jewelry. An option from Chanel comes with a beaded cord sunglasses chain, while Magda Butrym’s collaboration with Linda Farrow is decked out in removable bling.

As summer sets in, it’s time to buy a new pair – or two – for the sunnier days ahead. Below buy the best sunglasses for women.
