Marie Claire: 19 Sunglasses Brands to Have on Your Radar for Summer 2021
Whether you're channeling Bella Hadid or Sophia Loren.
The search for flawless frames is never a quick process. It's a never-ending personal journey that involves careful research and sometimes visits to—gasp!—brick-and-mortar retailers to try on the eyewear in the flesh. Not to mention, as with most accessories, sunglasses trends evolve with the season. One day, oversize frames are in, the next they’re replaced by tiny spectacles worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner—it's hard to keep up, I know. To top it all off, there are hundreds of eyewear brands out there. Because shopping for sunglasses can be a struggle if you don't know where to look, I'm kick-starting your search with a list of the most high-quality, covetable, fashion-forward sunglasses brands out there, and the pair we're lusting over from each one.
Aperçu, an effortlessly cool new eyewear brand, strives to create easy-to-wear frames for all shapes and looks. The brand offers acetate frames in three essential shapes: the rounds, the cat-eye, and the squared. Along with the essentials, newer Aperçu collections continue to add of-the-moment frames.
