The coming summer is going to see us all emerge into the sunlight with a renewed sense of sartorial flair. If you're looking forward to throwing everything at your wardrobe to see what sticks, investing in a new outfit for your summer gatherings, and enjoying dressing up again, we don't blame you. But which men's sunglasses should you choose to complement your new look, or simply upgrade your old one? Here, we take you through a few classic styles, and a couple making a big splash right now, and how you can pull them off this summer 2021. 

Wayfarers

Truly the all-rounder and for a long-time the absolute go-to for just about every fashion-conscious guy in existence, classic sunglass shapes like the Ray-Ban Wayfarer retain some of their lasting beauty in the fact they can be worn with pretty much everything. They pair well with a suit, but due to their sporting heritage, also work seamlessly into more leisurely fits, whether that be flowy resort wear or even athleisure. If you want a one-size-fits-all option, this is where to start.

Wire-frames

Something of a sartorial upgrade from the classic Wayfarers while maintaining a sense of classic style, wire-frame sunglasses are a great opportunity to add a little glamour to your eyewear game if you're still working out your own personal style. Wire-frame glasses look great with breezy dressed-up outfits, but can also look surprisingly cool paired with a slouchy t-shirt and some nice sneakers. Don't be afraid to play with tints and colours, either. They're meant to stand out, not blend in.

Rectangular frames

A firm favourite of the street style crowd right now, angular, geometric frames are having a big moment, whether they're being rocked by Virgil Abloh or The Inspired Unemployed. But while they might look a bit more 'fashun' than your regular specs, pulling them off isn't that much different to rocking a pair of Wayfarers. If you like summery fits, bright shirts and playing with materials, they're a great shout to help you stand out.

Sport style

Sports sunglasses have been either largely written off or worn almost exclusively with a tinge of irony in recent years, but the fact remains that due to a resurgence in turn of the millennium fashion, the test cricket specials are making a comeback. That's not to say we recommend pairing your Oakley sunglasses with a suit and tie at special occasions, but much like the resurgence of the modern-day mullet, if you're a fan of retro sportswear or a more streetwear-heavy look, there's never been a more fashionable time to invest in athletic eyewear.
