While peak sunglass season is here, it’s a great excuse to widen your collection and broaden your horizons. From a Louis Vuitton frame to feed your logomania obsession to Dior’s statement B1U (that you can try on digitally), here are five styles worth trying this season.

VERSACE Medusa Biggie Sunglasses

Jetblack doesn’t have to be understated, especially when detailed with Versace’s signature gold-tone heritage Medusa Medallion. The Medusa Biggie Sunglasses pays homage to the bondage chain dress Donatella wore in the nineties—designed by her brother and Versace’s founder Gianni.

DIOR DiorSignature B1U

Consider a neon-colored frame that plays on curves for sunnies that pop. If you’re cautious about going with a bold choice without trying them on, Dior offers a “try online” feature. It requires access to your device’s camera, then the eyewear you want to fit pops on your face like an Instagram filter.

On the Korean brand’s bestsellers list is the Tega G1, a square iteration of their Flatba frame with a “barely-there” slope over the lenses. It’s an option for frames you can leave in your purse when the sun beats down—it offers 99.9 percent UV protection and the subtle Gentle Monster logo by the hinges.

LOUIS VUITTON LV Flash Sunglasses

When traveling with your neverfull and Horizon luggage, you might as well match your shades with your favorite monogram. Although the Flash Sunglasses look like classic aviators, there’s an angular twist on the edges for accent. For this piece, the French house was inspired by former men’s creative director Virgil Abloh’s heavy use of their signature motif.

CUTLER & GROSS 1388 Square Sunglasses

Although nineties trends are prevalent again, we might as well throw it back to the more glamorous era of the seventies and eighties. For this design, Tony Gross, the brand’s founder (and the man regarded as the first optician to influence fashion), was inspired by New York’s hip hop and style scene of that era.
