It's a hot summer day, the sun is shining bright above your head, and you're all set for your day ahead. Once you step out, you find yourself squinting and thinking... what's missing?
A PAIR OF SUNGLASSES.
Finding the right pair of sunglasses can be quite the challenge - but stay right here, because you're about to find out where to get your perfect pair.
Here are the best places to buy sunglasses, with options for every style and budget:
1. Forever 21
This is a no-brainer because 1) we know Forever 21 is very affordable and 2) the options they offer are limitless.
Every eyewear trend you spot on models and/or street bloggers can be found here! And the best part? You can try out these trends without investing too much of your hard-earned cash.
Find your new staple piece by browsing the accessories rack at your local H&M. This is my go-to place to get sunglasses because they carry a wide range of options in tons of classic styles. Wayfarers, cat-eye, aviators... you name it, H&M has it.
3. Urban Outfitters
For those of you who are never satisfied with basic styles and like to go the extra mile with your accessories, Urban Outfitters is a paradise. UO never fails to come out with ~funky~ and unique glasses that are sure to stand out from the crowd.
4. Princess Polly Boutique
Did one of your favorite influencers recently come out with a collaboration? You can probably find it on Princess Polly. This Australian brand carries lots of different sunglasses brands and also does exclusive collaborations with social media influencers. Be ready to add some ~cool~ points to your outfit with these shades.
When you're ready to commit (to a pair of sunglasses), you'll know. Nordstrom carries the best brands for sunglasses, ranging from more affordable brands like Quay, BP, and Ray-Ban to luxurious brands such as Gucci, Prada, and Chloé.
Whatever your budget, you are guaranteed quality with the pair of shades you get at Nordstrom.
6. Warby Parker
This one is for us girls who need a pair of prescription sunglasses. Warby Parker's wide range of frames and at home try-on program are just some reasons I love this brand.
Their sunglasses are on the expensive side, but you know you're investing in a pair that will last you for a very long time.
And there you have it: the best places to get sunglasses!
