Perhaps, you've heard of a little movie called Breakfast at Tiffany's starting Audrey Hepburn. Her iconic sunglasses were designed by the legnedary Oliver Goldsmith. So you might as well own a piece of history, too, by investing in the classy shades.
Sure, thousands of brands have copied the iconic aviator style, but there's nothing like the real thing. Ray-Ban originally created this timeless silhouette for pilots back in the 1920s, and they are still just as stylish today.
Desna Gold-Tone Sunglasses
Meghan Markle was recently spotted wearing a pair of frames from Mykita. Each pair is certainly an investment, but the gold-tone stainless steel trimming makes them a purchase that will withstand the test of time.
Squared aviator-frame acetate sunglasses
Square frames have been a no-brainer for celebs for years. A good pair—like the beloved Céline design—will transform even the most casual outfits into a photo-ready look.
Oversized Round Sunglasses
Linda Farrow is an icon in the eyewear industry. And you've probably spotted the most stylish women in the world wearing her frames—like Amal Clooney and Kate Moss. Shape is a big part of the brand's history, and these round sunnies will always be in style.
Skinny rectangular frames might be having a moment right now, but Saint Laurent's more approachable shape will forever be a closet staple.
Serpenti Round Mitered Metal Sunglasses
Bulgari's elegant shades are also a safe investment (and Kate Middleton agrees). Shades from the Serpenti collection have become a modern classic that aren't going anywhere.
