With summer in full swing, it’s time you updated your wardrobe. And after you’ve sorted your summer footwear, you’re going to need a pair of new shades. And with today being National Sunglasses Day (it’s apparently a thing), here’s some top tips on buying men’s sunglasses in summer 2018!

Top 5 Men’s Sunglasses Styles for Summer 2018

Square Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2018

For something subtle which still offers some sophistication, a square-lensed shade should be at the top of your shopping list this summer. Annoyingly the warmer weather doesn’t mean you skip work but the right pair of squared sunglasses can add some real panache to your work outfit.

We like these Dragon Alliance DRAC sunglasses. Perfect for those office to bar days, versatility and comfort are the name of the game with the Drac sunglass. The Italian-made lightweight frame sits conspicuously with subtle hints of style, as found in the hinge, temple detailing, and distinct keyhole. £160

Round Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2018

For a more retro look, a Round-lensed shade is something we’ve seen a big revival of in the last year or two, and they can bring some real playfulness to any outfit. We prefer larger glasses but there are also plenty of smaller lenses out there which will have the same effect. We’re also a fan of a feature frame when it comes to round-lenses.

Something like these Benjamin shades from Ace & Tate would do just the trick. The rounded frame comes with a keyhole bridge and will add character to any outfit and should give you an approachable, smart but offbeat look. Available in Tigerwood or Hummingbird. £98

Pilot Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2018

The main style you’ll be seeing this summer, and probably every summer forever more, is unsurprisingly the iconic Pilot. The thinly framed, reflective classics are showing no signs of fading into history thanks to their ability to suit basically any outfit and every occasion, and therefore every Joe.

No real surprises here but you really can’t go wrong with a classic Ray-Ban Aviator. We love this Classic model which features a gold frame and a lens colour of your choice. Each lens comes with optimum visual clarity and 100% UV protection. £127

Performance Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2018

Though the height of the European ski season has been and gone, there are still some slopes across the continent to be hit in the summer. Not only that, it’s also one of the best times of year to get on the saddle and do some road cycling. And that means you’re going to need something extremely functional and durable.

Oakley are always a safe bet when it comes to performance sunglasses and the Oakley Field Jacket is the brand’s most exciting eyewear at the moment. The revolutionary eyewear features Prizm lenses which provide unprecedented control of light transmission and Advancer technology which instantly opens airflow to combat fogging and overheating – an essential in the summer! £185

Semi-Rimmed Men’s Sunglasses for Summer 2018

A trend we’ve seen in the last couple of years which looks set to continue this summer, a pair of Semi-Rimmed sunglasses can add some edge to even the most standard pair of shades, which is why Joes are opting for the style more than ever.

We absolutely love these Henry sunglasses from Tom Ford. The stylish design comes with a structured acetate frame and a contrasting gold bottom rim, with the sunglasses offering a smartly-designed single bridge and gold accents. Pure class. £169
