These Gucci Frames Are Officially the Coolest Sunglasses of 2021

The return of the sun this week has prompted a wardrobe switchover for many, with puffer coats and bulky knitwear retired for another year and the dusting off of our summer pieces. Nothing says summer like a pair of sunglasses, and there is one silhouette that is proving particularly popular of late—square and rectangular frames. Gucci has become a moniker for maximalist styling, so it is not surprising that this is the brand leading this trend.

The house's rectangular- and square-frame sunglasses with an interlocking double-G logo on each arm are rapidly becoming a mainstay on my Instagram feed, and they are so popular that I think they are officially the sunglasses of 2021. For a more classic take, follow Lizzo's lead and opt for the black pair with quilted leather arms. If you want something a little punchier, however, I love the white version, which is £255, and the oversize mint-green pair. Actress Jodie Turner-Smith wore these in a recent feature with MatchesFashion and said she loves dialling up her outfits with colour and her Gucci sunglasses, in particular, "which [she] never [leaves] home without." Keep scrolling to see—and shop—the sunglasses of 2021.
