I Hunted Down the Coolest New Sunglasses—These 29 Pairs Are *It*

There are so many cool sunglasses on the market right now, and I just need to take a moment to discuss them. While I have some favorites in my personal sunglasses collection, I’m always willing to experiment with the new trends of the season. After all, I think that sunglasses can really transform a look, so for me, they’re never an afterthought but instead something that is a key accessory when I’m getting dressed.

This season, there are some standout trends like '80s-inspired shield styles, sculptural shapes, and colorful frames to look out for. There are also a number of newly launched sunglasses collections that are in high demand—including Who What Wear editor favorites like Cult Gaia and Nanushka. Ahead, I’m sharing the cool sunglasses I just hunted down that range from designer pieces to affordable finds and are destined for the closets of fashion insiders.
