The best black sunglasses for women are as cool as they are classic


Photographed by Leibovitz Studio, Inc., Vogue, January 2022.

Eyewear trends come and go, but a pair of stylish black sunglasses never loses its cool. There’s something so indescribably easy about a pair of classic square/rectangular shaped frames in glossy black and matching dark lenses. The subtle yet strong look contributes to their timeless allure and timeless movie star aesthetic.

One of the benefits of owning a pair of black sunglasses is that you will never tire of them; best of all, they’ll probably go with just about any outfit. Not to mention, this classic hue suits almost everyone – no accessory collection should be missing one (or two).

There is a lot of variety in the black sunglasses genre; each style has subtle details that make them unique. First, you need to decide on the shape; there are cat-eye, ultra-square, Wayfarer, and rounded rectangular Jackie O styles to choose from. Next come design nuances like titanium accents, curved or straight bridges, wide or narrow temples, etc. It’s no wonder some chic black hues grace the pages of vogue for decades, a test for their timelessness and modernity.
