What Style Sunglasses are in for Summer 2024?

When we talk about the sunglasses of summer 2024, upswept cat-eyes, vivacious metallic frames, sporty shades, and tinted lenses are all the rage. From Jenner Sisters’ retro revival to Adele’s oversized sunnies, the sunglasses trends of 2024 are diverse, daring, and oh-so fashion forward.

  • Tinted Glasses

    This summer, why not put on a pair of ‘rose-tinted’ glasses (literally), and romanticise your life? Well, among the hottest sunglasses trends of 2024, tinted lenses stand out. These transparent monocles come in a range of colours, from pinks to blues, and purples, and have the potential to instantly elevate even the most monotonous outfits.

    If you are an avid lover of all-things vivid and bright, tinted lenses are something worth considering. They add an instant pop of colour, and their ‘thick’ frames and bold silhouette will surely help you pull through times ‘thick and thin,’ and beat the summer heat in style.

    Style Tip: Match the colour of your tinted glasses with the outfit for a cohesive and flattering monochromatic look. For instance, if you are wearing a blue T-shirt, then a pair of tinted eyewear like our EDEN 4 will automatically elevate and aggrandise the attire! So, when it comes to tinted sunglasses, it is important to have ‘a frame for every game.’

  • Oversized Sunglasses

    Oversized sunglasses are a classic, but this summer, they are also a massive trend that even A-list Hollywood stars cannot seem to resist. Although Oversized sunglasses took a backseat for a brief while, as their tinier counterparts took over, the wheels of fashion have changed again. Oversized rectangular, square, and even oval frames are sweeping through runway shows.

    Besides, oversized shades also give off an intriguing and mysterious appearance, which is precisely why Mary Kate and Ashley Oslen never take off them, while out in front of the paparazzis. So, if your plan is to stand out, slay, and look like an enigmatic individual who has got their ‘sh*t’ together, then oversized trending summer sunglasses are the way to go!

    Style Tip: Pair your oversized sunglasses with minimal accessories for a put-together look. As oversized sunnies are a big fashion statement in themselves, make sure that other elements of your outfit like jewellery are muted and subtle.

  • Cat-eye Sunglasses

    Trends come and go, but some like cat-eyes sunglasses have stood the test of time to become absolute classics. And, what is even better is that they are among the most trending sunglasses of 2024. With an upswept look, black lenses, and a thick frame, cat-eye sunnies are a sight to behold. They exemplify the ‘femme fatale’ look but add a contemporary touch.

    From Bella Hadid to Haily Beiber, cat-eye glasses have become the fan favourite of A-list style divas. Besides, if you want some extra fashion inspo for your cat-eye sunnies, then look no further than Ashley Park and Lily Collins from Emily in Paris for the trendiest cat-eye glasses and outfit combos. Whether it is Parisian chic or Old Hollywood glamour, cat-eye sunglasses can help you achieve both!

    Style Tip: Cat-eye glasses are incredibly feminine. So, while styling them, you can either take the extremely ‘girly’ look or go for a ‘masc’ attire. The former will create a seamless unison of the sunglasses and the outfit, whereas the latter will produce a striking contrast.

  • Sporty Shield Sunglasses

    Whether you are an avid sports lover or a big-time homebody, this summer, you have the chance to flaunt your inner Andy Murray, by donning a pair of sporty sunglasses. Among the trending sunglasses of 2024, sporty eyewear stands out, owing to their limelight-grabbing look and high-fashion appeal.

    Popularised by none other than Kim Kardashian, sporty Bug-eyed sunglasses with a massive mask-like frame and a mirrored finish will surely make you feel and look like an absolute fashion powerhouse. These types of sunglasses exude an extremely high-fashion aura, as they are the original ideations of Balenciaga and Demna - a brand and a creative designer known to launch the most out-of-the-box and androgynous creations.

    Style Tip: Sporty sunglasses are best paired with a high-street casual look. Think parachute pants, carpenter jeans, cargos, bucket hats, and chunky sneakers. Moreover, if you want a sleek ‘Kim K’ appeal, then pair your sporty sunglasses with the famous ‘SKIMS’ dress or anything similar!

What Sunglasses Colours are Trending in 2024

Trending Sunglasses in summers

Well, after a conversation of the trendiest sunglasses of summer 2024, it is only appropriate if we end the discussion by talking about the most voguish frame colours for this year.

Of course, neutrals and basics like black and brown are classic frame colours that are always in, and will continue to hold the reins of the ‘high fashion club.’ But, don’t you think that summer calls for some kind of experimentation?

This year, coloured frames are an absolute rage, thronging both runways and designer stores. The most fashionable frame colours include light blue, mint green, Valentino pink, Viva Magenta, white, orange, and Bottega green. These shades are, of course, spicy, eye-catching, and flirtatious, but they look equally suave and sophisticated.
