Steeped in ‘classic cool’, the offerings from Ray-Ban come loaded with history. Take those hexagonal frames above. They're a move on from the round-lens style, a staple of the Ray-Ban collection since the 60s when the decade’s most iconic musicians – like Bob Dylan – rocked them. Plus, there isn't a look they wouldn't go with – it's a win-win.

When you think ‘classic sunglasses’, the Wayfarer will surely come to mind. Coined as ‘the most recognisable style of sunglasses in history’, the shape has been around since the 50s. They've even made their way into some of the most stylish flicks ever made, like Reservoir Dogs and The Blues Brothers. These shades are so versatile, they'll go great with everything from beach-ready looks like the ones above to your summer wedding 'fit. And finally, the black-frame square lens are the classic OG – and this season they're also available in tortoiseshell finishes among other iconic styles such as the Aviator and Clubmaster. The shade is real.
