I’ve arrived at a point in my life where I just can’t be bothered to ball out on sunglasses. Or if I’m being real, I just can’t be trusted. Words cannot describe the pain I felt when I realized I had sat on my Louis V aviators and completely crushed them. Thick thighs may save lives, but not sunglasses. Other shades have been lost at sea, forgotten in Ubers, and I’ll admit I’ve also left a pair (perhaps more) on the Cactus Club patio after a few too many glasses of Frozé. RIP Louis, Gucci and Céline.
So rather than spending half a stack on a singular pair, I’m more into buying a few pairs that won’t launch me into a depressive episode should they end up at the bottom of the ocean. LOL. But seriously. Aside from the responsibility issue, sunglasses trends change SO damn fast and we all know certain frame styles and colors won’t be around for more than a season. So there’s also that. The sunglasses I’ve been wearing the most this summer are from my friend Kate’s collab with Basix Boutique. Sassy AF, right? And they’re only $30! They go with literally everything and play a crucial role in the “sunglasses and advil, last night was mad real” hungover aesthetic. Yup, I took it there ;).
All of that being said, I’ve rounded up a TON of cute sunglasses from all of my favorite brands that are all under $100! All of these are affordable, but still look and feel ultra luxe.
