​11 Coolest New Sunglasses for Summer

If you’re going to buy only one thing this season, make it one of these:

It’s an indisputable fact that sunglasses make you look cooler. Researcher Vanessa Brown wrote a whole book on why—citing how they make you look composed and aloof, make your face seem more chiseled and strong, and how they add an air of mystery to even the most boring schlump.Sunglasses also have a long association with attractive, old Hollywood celebrities and models. And even if you’re not one of them, we’re willing to bet these new spring frames will make you look pretty damn good. Here are 11 of our favorites.

Simple black frames go great with a suit (and everything else, too).

Gold reflective lenses are in again, and the thin silver and tortoiseshell accents here help ground the look, so you don’t end up looking like a Nascar driver.


The combination of bottle green and amber lenses make these a cool, but subtle alternative to more traditional colours.


We love the bright tan hue and strong structure of these specs inspired by the round ’60s frames of old Hollywood’s leading men.


With that price and simple construction, you won’t be afraid to play rough while wearing these minimalist black frames.


You can never go wrong with a classic Ray-Ban—especially when they reissue a classic frame like the General, the aviator introduced in 1987, named for Lt. Douglas MacArthur.


Pink looks good on every guy, and retro frames are huge this season. So consider these a double whammy of good.


Aviators are as classic as a crisp white button down or a navy blue suit, and the matte black overlay gives them a tougher look here.


Circle frames are another old-is-new trend in eyewear. Just avoid the look if you already have a round face.


These sunglasses are timeless but modern. You’ll never have to buy another pair—making them worth the price. Just make sure to wear them with caution (no watersports in these, mister).


A mix of classic tortoiseshell in a trendy shape with UV-protection. Enough said.
