As we prepare to come out of quarantine, we’re thinking a lot about staying safe and protected, and that should include protecting our eyes—both from the sun and from the virus.
Since coronavirus can be spread through the eyes, some doctors believe that wearing glasses or other protective eyewear can help stave off the virus. Plus, protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays is important year-round. Luckily, Amazon’s Big Style Sale includes over 100 pairs of Ray-Ban and Oakley sunglasses that’ll get the job done in style.
In the Ray-Ban sunglasses sale? Classic shapes like the Aviator and Wayfarer, plus lesser-known varieties. As for the Oakley sunglasses sale? Durable and sporty sunnies with polarized lenses. Scroll down for our favorite ways to throw some shade during Amazon’s Big Style Sale.
Aviator sunglasses haven’t changed since they first hit the market — and that’s the way we like them. They feature polarized lenses, 100 percent UV protection and come in four sizes to perfectly suit your face.
“I have several pairs of these beauties,” writes a dedicated fan. “Aviators never go out of style and look good on any face type. They also provide unprecedented visibility because of the shape of the lens and the fact that these lenses are polarized. The finish on the lenses is flawless. They will provide you with years of use and still look good.”

There’s a reason these sunglasses have a near-perfect rating — they look great on everybody. The rounded wire frame with an angular acetate browline has a lifting effect and flatters every face shape. Plus, they come in 31 colors and two sizes.
This reviewer vouches for their quality: “I've had mine [for six months] and I, admittedly, am not careful with them. I drop them, I chew on [them], and I wear them constantly and often hang them on strings or my shirt. There's not a scratch on them, the screws aren't coming loose, and because they're the same as the day I bought them, I no longer have ‘hundred-dollar-sunglasses’ shame,” they write. “There's so much confidence that comes with wearing them I will happily buy them again on the day that I lose or sit on them.”
