Sunglasses are to summer what boots are to winter. In other words, an absolute necessity.
However, if you browse various department stores and sunglass retailers, you might find yourself facing a serious case of sticker shock encountering numbers like $500. Yes, $500, for something that you’ll inevitably end up losing in a cab, or breaking at the beach.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Great style doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and there are plenty of killer sunglass options out there that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Because, really, you shouldn’t be spending money on sunglasses, you should be saving up for that much-needed trip to the beach this summer.
Here, our favorite styles, all under $100—with some even costing a little more than a cup of a coffee. Now get out there and enjoy the rays.
