If there’s one wardrobe essential you’ll need this summer, it’s a great pair of sunnies and, as the celebs are rarely seen without a pair, we thought where better to look for inspo on the best styles to shop this summer than to them.

With the ability to elevate any outfit, the best sunglasses really are a summer must-have. Not only will they come in handy on a sunny day but they’re also perfect for hiding tired eyes after a big night out or our favourite summer pastime – people-watching. So, now that summer has finally decided to make an appearance (dare we speak too soon), it’s the perfect time to invest in a new pair.

Not sure where to start with upgrading your eye candy? We’ve done the hard work and rounded up the best sunglasses all our fave celebs and influencers are actually wearing. Whether you want to get your hands on a classic pair of Ray Bans like Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Wilde, try out the tiny sunglasses trend or you’re after the best dupes of Oliver Peoples cult status sunglasses, we’ve got you covered.

And if you don’t fancy splashing the cash on a designer pair, we’ve also scouted the best dupes from just £4.
