These 10 Summer 2024 Sunglasses Trends Will Heat Up Your Accessories Game

The best way to complete any outfit just may be a chic pair of sunglasses—especially in the summer. While shades are a practical accessory, they also have an undeniable cool factor that only gets more powerful in a bold, personality-filled style (and perhaps paired with an on-trend handbag). This summer’s sunglasses trends are all about details that take each pair from everyday into statement territory, be it a unique shape, a head-turning lens color, or a nostalgic feel. From micro frames à la Rihanna to Sofia Richie Grainge’s go-to cat eyes, there’s a style for everyone this season. Below, we’ve rounded up the top 10 sunglasses trends we’re expecting to see this summer, along with standout product picks to get the look for yourself.

Micro Frames

Tiny sunglasses have become a celebrity and influencer favorite in recent years, and this summer, they’re set to be bigger than ever. They often don’t have the best coverage for UV protection—but what they are ideal for is making a nighttime statement alongside all your summer going-out looks.


Color Blocking

Color blocking is trending across fashion in general this spring and summer, and the look has extended to sunglasses via gradient lenses and high-contrast frames. Whether your taste leans vivid or subtle, there’s a color-blocked pair of sunnies sure to take your style to the next level.


Oval Sunnies

Oval frames are versatile and work well with almost any aesthetic or face shape. A strong pair of oval sunnies will instantly give off a chic, quiet luxury vibe that money absolutely can buy.


Soft Cat Eye

While we adore traditional cat-eye sunglasses (they’ll never go out of style), this summer we’re going to be seeing a softer version of the silhouette. Sofia Richie Grainge frequently sports this type of frame when out and about, so take note from her for an effortlessly sophisticated look.



Cardi B smiling at camera with red hair, checkered leather jacket, large hoops, and red y2k inspired sunglasses

While trends from other decades (like early 2010s indie sleaze) have started creeping into fashion, Y2K is still going strong when it comes to eyewear. From frameless styles to glitz and glam, channel your inner Paris Hilton and get your hands on a pair of nostalgic, fun-filled lenses.


Modern Shields

While shield sunglasses make quite the statement and are certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, you do have some options if they’re something you’ve considered daring to try.This summer, instead of popping on a pair of shields that are overwhelming, we suggest looking into modern offerings. They’re not as harsh but still provide the face with lots of coverage and an effortlessly cool look.


Colored Lenses

Colored lenses are going to completely take over this summer, adding a vivid pop to your look alongside the silver shoes and cherry red handbags already trending. Whether you go for one of our recs below or find another pair out there that speaks to you, sunglasses with colorful lenses will make you feel instantly cool, no matter what’s on the day’s agenda.


Oversized Sunglasses

Whether you need a pair of sunglasses to rock when you’re running errands or hitting the pool, we large and in charge oversized sunnies are the way to go for all your summer plans. They make a statement (in a good way), and you have endless options when it comes to colors and shapes—so you can absolutely find a pair that fits your style.

Summer is the perfect opportunity to whip out your fave pair of aviator sunglasses. You can’t go wrong with the classic metal silhouette, or you can shake things up by opting for a plastic frame or modern shape.


Tortoise Details

Just as black sunglasses are a staple that everyone should have in their collection, tortoise is one of the most versatile investments you can make. It’s a great neutral print that will look good with any ensemble, be it a minimal neutral outfit or Palm Beach-ready vacation look.
