Raise your hand if you’ve ever lost a pair of sunglasses. That’s what we thought. Chances are that, in the midst of your summer revelry, the first thing to go will be your shades. Still, it’s necessary to have a rotation: Sunglasses shield your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Science — or rather, Science of Us — says they make everyone appear more attractive. Plus, a cool pair of shades adds instant allure to your selfies.
Lucky for you, we’re currently living in the golden age of cheap sunglasses. (All hail the rise of so-bad-it’s-good fashion.) Now, more than ever, kitschy acetate frames and sleazy-chic, Johnny Depp-circa-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas tinted lenses are in. Elsewhere, you’ve got sites like Nordstrom Rack and nascent labels like Bonnie Clyde selling designer-quality fare at a very reasonable (read: under $100) price point.
Yes, chic, cheap sunglasses do exist. Click through the slideshow above for proof. From Topshop’s retro-inspired cat eyes to Le Specs’ rimless, Bella Hadid-approved shades, we’ve rounded up 34 sunglasses of all sizes, shapes and colors — all costing $100 or less.
