Wayfarers-style

A favourite of everyone from Bob Dylan to Tyler The Creator (above), this is a style of sunnies that works with pretty much any outfit you can imagine. Versatile, cool and actually good at keeping the sun out of your eyes, there's a lot to love about the Wayfarer style of sunglasses.

Clubmaster-style

This iconic style (it's difficult to find a better description) has been making faces look better for 30 years and they're still going strong. Check out Tim Roth in Reservoir Dogs (above) if you needed further proof, because the man looks excellent. Get involved.

Aviator-style

The frames were originally patented by Bausch & Lomb (the parent company of Ray-Ban) back in 1937 for the United States Air Force, and this style has been setting the agenda ever since.
