This Key Accessory Will Make Everything You Own Look Designer

In the pursuit of making your outfits look cooler, you don't have to invest in a haul of new clothes to make them so. In fact, the secret to adding instant polish and attitude to your ensembles lies with one key accessory—sunglasses.

We consider sunglasses to be a year-round staple, but now as we ease into spring, chances are you've bumped upgrading your shades up a couple of spots on your sartorial to-do list. While you can quite easily pick up a new pair as you browse online (the high street has plenty of low-cost, on-trend options), some sunglasses brands are in a league of their own. We hope you're ready because we're about to introduce you to our pick of said brands.

Small but mighty, we think sunglasses are worth spending a little extra on, specifically if you want a pair that'll never date. High-end fashion houses like Celine and Gucci have created eyewear collections that are just as impressive as their clothing lines. Similarly, The Row has teamed up with eyewear label Oliver Peoples to create its own capsule of covetable styles. Still, if your budget is looking a little lean, rest assured, as some more affordable options have also made our list, including under-the-radar brands your friends are less likely to know about. Scroll below to see our edit of the best sunglasses brands—then start planning your chic spring outfits around them.
