Whether you’re driving down the highway with the windows down or sitting outside enjoying an afternoon with your friends, a stylish pair of sunglasses is a must-have for the upcoming season. Luckily, there are many stores on Rakuten where you can find your new favorite shades for summer. Here are some of our picks.
Blenders Eyewear is the epitome of “started from the bottom now we’re here.” The brand was created by Chase Fisher, who started selling sunglasses from his own backpack while working as a surf coach. We love this pair of Arctic Fame sunglasses with a polarized purple lens (and not just because the purple bears a resemblance to our Rakuten purple).
DIFF Eyewear offers designer-quality eyewear at an affordable price. Each time you purchase a pair of sunglasses, a pair of reading glasses is given to someone in need as part of the company’s Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program. The Becky line is one of DIFF’s top sellers, radiating the glam vibes needed for the summer season.
For people who are a bit sportier during the summer, Oakley has you covered with athletic eyewear. The brand’s sports performance sunglasses feature impact protection, designed to withstand all types of demanding conditions. Beach volleyball anyone?
Sunski offers sustainable sunglasses for outdoor enthusiasts. The brand’s superlight recycled frames are so comfortable and lightweight that you’ll forget you’ve been wearing them all day. The polarized lenses are designed for a crisp, clear-eyed view of the world around you, so they’re perfect for hikes, days at the beach and all other summer adventures.
Our opinion: Everyone needs a pair of tortoise-shell sunglasses. They’re stylish without being too flashy, and they go with every outfit — whether you’re dressed up or down. Warby Parker sunglasses are designed with top-tier materials for durability and style, but they won’t burn a hole through your wallet.
Ray-Ban is the leading brand for luxury sunglasses and eyeglasses. You can’t go wrong with the classic Wayfarer or Clubmaster sunglasses, but a pair of aviators is a great option if you’re looking for something a bit sleeker for the summer. We also love how Ray-Ban includes a case and cleaning cloth with its sunglasses, so you can keep yours in pristine condition all season.
