This Season’s Sunglasses for a Holiday in the Sun

When it comes to sunglasses, you'd be forgiven for picking the coolest looking pair without giving much thought to how much protection they actually offer your eyes – we're all guilty of it! When you think about it though, your eyes need protection from the sun, sea and sand on holiday, so investing in a pair of sunglasses which keeps your eyes safe is well worth the extra money. Here are a few of this summer's best shades to ensure you not only look cool but look after the health of your eyes too.

Polarised lenses

It's well worth investing extra in a pair of cool sunglasses with polarised lenses. Not only do polarised lenses make details clearer and provide total UV protection, with 100% of UVA and UVB rays eliminated, they're also anti-glare, which means those headaches from bright light and glare are a thing of the past. As anyone from the UK knows, all that sunshine can be a bit of a shock to the system on holiday, so investing in polarised lenses is well worth it. We love Ray-Ban Original Aviator shades in a range of styles to suit both men and women, but you'll find a wide choice of sunglasses offering polarised lenses to choose from.

Cat's eye

As anyone in touch with the world of fashion knows, retro glamour is where it's at this season, so channel your inner movie star with a fabulous pair of cat’s eye sunglasses. Make sure you opt for sunglasses which offer full UVA and UVB protection – Prada and Tom Ford have a range of cool cat’s eye styles to suit oval and round faces. 


Aviators are great for a cool, classic look and it seems like they've been in fashion forever. Choosing Aviator shades with polarised lenses helps to protect your eyes on holiday whilst picking a reputable brand such as Ray-Ban means you know your sunglasses will last.

Sport chic

Sporty wrap-around styles from brands such as Oakley offer superior protection for active types – whether you're surfing, playing beach volleyball or just lounging in the sun, sporty sunglasses are great to keep your eyes protected.

You should always buy your sunglasses from a reputable website – we're not suggesting that shades bought from smaller sites will offer inferior protection, but if you buy from a well-known brand or website, you know exactly what you are getting for your money.
