The dull days are disappearing and the sun is making a welcome return, which marks the annual review of our sunglasses game. With 80 years experience in stylishly shielding our eyes, Ray-Ban is a natural choice – and now it's given its timeless offering a refresh with added character and new styles, you needn’t look any further than the American brand’s SS17 line.

Finding the right specs for your face shape is a difficult task, so it’s tempting to play it safe and opt for classic silhouettes like Wayfarers. However, for the coming summer, Ray-Ban is challenging us to broaden our horizons in terms of style. While, in many people’s eyes, Aviators evoke sun-tinged thoughts of cool, leather-clad bikers or Air Force pilots, Ray-Ban’s spring season sees its classic style given a subtle reworking, courtesy of some light blue-hued lenses.
The same lenses are used in its 70s-inspired Ja-Jo silhouette, which boasts a minimal, round-lens design. The bolder choice of frame will not only give your 'fits a throwback feel, it'll mean they’ll slot seamlessly into a festival look.
For fans of more modest styles, however, the Clubmaster remains a sure-fire winner, with its tortoiseshell frame adding a prominent structure to an otherwise simple gold frame.
