There are two reasons why I rarely spend more than $50 on a pair of sunglasses: First of all, they’re one of the few accessories that I think are done reallyĀ well by affordable brands (unlike, say, shoes, which are harder to get right for less than $100). Then there’s my track recordā€”I’ve been known to break, scratch, and even sit on expensive shades, and at least one pair of my $300 Karen Walker sunglasses were forgotten in the back of a taxi.Ā Cheaper, easily replaceable pairs just saveĀ thatĀ stress.

This summer ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, and Nasty Gal are all offering cool shades for as little as $8, whileĀ smallerĀ sunglasses brands like Quay Eyewear, Perverse, and Minkpink haveĀ takenĀ hintsĀ from the pricierĀ designers in their under-$50 collections. Basically, that meansĀ you can getĀ a pair that looks just like the onesĀ you loved on the runway for literally a fraction of the investment.
