The CF Ultimate Sunglasses Guide

No summer accessories wardrobe is complete without a new pair of sunglasses. Here is our ultimate guide to the chicest styles for summer 2021.

A new pair of sunglasses are crucial whether you’re jetting off, or staying more local. Nothing refreshes your existing summer wardrobe quite like a smart new pair of shades. Finding the right pair is never an easy task. Luckily, this season there are myriad shapes to suit all face types. Whether you are after a maximalist oversized pair, or sleek 90s micro frames, we have you covered.


THE AVIATOR

The aviator shade is the perfect androgynous silhouette. Timeless and classic, it's perfect paired with a loose linen shirt for a borrowed-from-the-boys vibe, and also dials down a hyper-feminine floral dress. Opt for classic blue lenses at Ray-Ban – they will go with absolutely every outfit.
