We don’t really need a new handbag right now, nor is there much necessity for a fresh pair of fancy sandals. So, what’s a gal to do with that summer shopping itch? Invest in a pair of designer sunglasses, of course. Even better, you can easily find a chic pair of high-end sunglasses up to 50 percent off. We tracked down 14 of the top designer shades on sale right this very second, ranging from classic wayfarers to funky cat-eyes. Read on to find your perfect match (or matches).
1. Givenchy GV 7124 Round Sunglasses
Not quite a cat eye, but also not your typical square or round frame either, these oversize sunnies still stand the test of time and will remain cool for years to come.
2. Dior 48MM Tortoise Aviator Sunglasses
This geometric aviator is one of Dior’s best-selling styles, so we suggest you act fast if this tortoise frame version is making your heart sing.
3. Alexander McQueen Piercing Cat-Eye Gold-Tone Sunglasses
This subtle cat-eye is all at once minimalist and incredibly glamorous.
4. Victoria Beckham Hammered Aviators
A little bit ‘70s glam, a touch Top Gun and 100 percent approved by Posh Spice herself (because yes, she designed them).
5. SALVATORE FERRAGAMO SF939SL
Skip the mod minidress and pair these ‘60s-inspired shades with a racer-back tank and slip skirt for a more 2020-appropriate ensemble.
6. Miu Miu Cat-Eye Two-Tone Sunglasses
The subtle white rim on these oversize cat-eye frames from Miu Miu is just enough to separate them from the pack, and earn you tons of compliments in the process.
7. Dior Diorama Mini 54MM Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses
One the other hand, if subtle just isn’t your vibe we suggest picking up a pair of these mirrored sunnies that are equal parts glamorous and fashion-forward.
8. Gucci 56mm Round Sunglasses
If your sunglasses motto is “the bigger, the better,” then Gucci has you covered. Literally. This oversize pair offers the most sun protection on this list simply because the frames will cover more of your face.
9. Lele Sadoughi Imitation Pearl-Embellished Sunglasses
We love a good old-school ladylike accessory—structured square handbags, glasses chains, Mary Jane flats—and these pearl-accented sunnies certainly fit the bill.
10. Tom Ford Alissa Round-Frame Acetate and Gold-Tone Sunglasses
This half-frame is particularly flattering for those with smaller faces who find that too much detail tends to overwhelm their features.
11. Zimmermann Tallow Sunglasses
Some prefer to invest in classic, neutral-hued eyewear. Others prefer a more spectacular approach. These retro cat-eyes are squarely in the latter camp (although we’d be so bold as to suggest they’ve got a certain timeless appeal regardless of color and shape).
12. Stella McCartney Aviator Sunglasses
These are not your average aviators. For starters, they’re made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials, and they’re also decked out with a very cool acetate bar with delicate chain detailing for a unique take on the classic.
13. Saint Laurent Square-Frame Acetate Sunglasses
If you’re really attached to the look of smaller frames, this petite Wayfarer style might do the trick.
14. Oliver Peoples x The Row Board Meeting 2 Sunglasses
Don't worry, the gorgeous blue lens remains just sheer enough to show off your sparkling eyes.
