Among the necessity for tailored shorts, boat shoes and fedoras this summer comes the need for a great pair of sunglasses.

The ever-popular Ray Ban brand is a summer staple for any man’s wardrobe, so what better place to start than with these classic aviators?

Look 1: Classic cool

Ray Ban RB3025

Originally designed in 1937 to combat the blinding glare US Air Force pilots were experiencing, the Ray Ban aviators flew off the shelves soon after their introduction. From Tom Cruise to David Beckham, celebrities are all over the aviator sunglasses craze, and with its classic design and large range of colours, it seems wearing this style of sunglasses won’t ever be out of fashion.

Look 2: Retro stylin’

D&G 3082 Sunglasses

Another common sunglasses style is the wayfarer frame made famous by Ray Ban. Although the style was pinned by Ray Ban early on, there are dozens of brands now creating wayfarer-style frames but with their own mark of their own signature style.

Take these uber-cool D&G 3083 sunglasses. The thick, black, glossy frames pairs with the timeless wayfarer frame make for a stunning men’s sunglasses frame with non-fussy design and easy-to-wear gradient tinted lens. (D&G 3082 sunglasses RRP £127)

Look 3: Sporty casual

Carrera Forever Mine sunglasses

Whether it’s the Olympics, Tour de France or Wimbledon inspiring men across the globe to wear sports gear, one thing’s for sure: this trend looks great in sunglasses. These Carrera Forever Mine sunglasses offer a teardrop aviator frame with glossy acetate surround. The black, red and white colours make them an ideal choice for all day wear and they ooze sports style. (Carrera Forever Mine sunglasses RRP £109)

So whatever your style, this season there is plenty of sunglasses styles from some of the world’s top designers.
