Top 5 Men’s Sunglasses Styles for Summer 2017

Square Sunglasses for Summer 2017

For something subtle which still oozes sophistication, a square-lensed shade should be at the top of your shopping list. Annoyingly the summer doesn’t mean work finishes but if you find the right pair, squared sunglasses can add some real panache to you’re working outfit.

We like these Marc by Marc Jacobs MMJ 096/N/S sunglasses. Perfect for those office to bar days, these sunglasses feature Acetate frames combined with Polycarbonate, which will provide full protection from UV rays. Available in a great assortment of colours, we love the in Black frames with Grey Gradient lenses. £92

Round Sunglasses for Summer 2017

For a more retro look, a Round-lensed shade can bring some playfulness to any outfit. We prefer larger glasses but there are also plenty of smaller lenses around which will do the trick too.

Something like this Colin frame from Ace & Tate would do the trick. If you generally don’t think you suit glasses, then round-shaped Colin is for you. It’s like jeans: it suits everybody. Available in Bio-Black, Moraine or Tiger Wood. £98

Pilot Sunglasses for Summer 2017

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

No surprises here but you really can’t go wrong with a classic Ray-Ban Aviator. We love this Classic model which features a classic gold frame, and a lens colour of your choice. Each lens comes with optimum visual clarity and 100% UV protection. £125

Single Lens Sunglasses for Summer 2017

While it might not officially be in European ski season, there are still some slopes across the continent to be hit in the summer. Not only that, it’s one of the best times of year to get on the saddle and do some cycling. 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 something like the Oakley RadarLock Path is perfect if you’re a serious athlete.

Semi-Rimmed Sunglasses for Summer 2017

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

We like these Emporio Armani EA4092 Round Sunglasses. The stylish design comes with a structured metal frame and a contrasting plastic front part, with the sunglasses offering a smartly-designed double bridge and two-tone arms with the brand’s distinctive logo. £135
