6 Ray-Ban Styles That Will Give Your Summer Outfits Life
When you consider an outfit, what's that one finishing touch that will take it to the next level? Is it a handbag or a pair of earrings? For me, it's the sunglasses. A good pair of sunglasses can make or break an entire look. And as a self-proclaimed sunglasses savant, with a collection that runs the gamut between high-end luxury pairs and affordable trendy ones, I can confidently say that I always go back to the ones that fall squarely in the middle: my Ray-Ban frames.
The thing I love most about the brand is that with timeless creations reinvented season after season in fresh colors, you truly get the best of both worlds: the luxury quality plus the nod to current trends. Whether you're into classics like the Clubmaster or something a little bolder like the brand-new pink Aviators, let your summer outfits live up to their full potential with these iconic sunglasses — all shoppable at Nordstrom!
State Street Sunglasses
For an updated take on Ray-Ban's classic Wayfarer style, opt for the State Street Sunglasses ($172). With the more angular shape, they feel modern, stylish, and luxe. I'd match the sharp lines with clean, tailored pieces (think a blazer or wide-leg trousers) for a sophisticated summer look.
Aviator sunglasses have been a style staple for decades, and for good reason. They complement many face shapes, and exude that classic-cool vibe no matter how you wear them. For a summery touch, the new Pink Mirror Aviators ($200) will add a playful pop against dresses or swimwear. I personally love wearing aviators with activewear for a street-style-approved look.
Candy-colored lenses are a big trend for summer, and the cool blue of these Hexagonal Sunglasses ($161) — not to mention the eye-catching not-quite-round, not-quite-square shape — hit the perfect note between striking and subdued. Wear them with your summer denims for a tonal effect.
Polarized lenses, like the ones featured in the Orion Sunglasses ($222), are ideal for active lifestyles since they help reduce glare. Whether you're going on a hike or headed to the beach, grab these on your way out the door. The sleek shape will add a polished finish to your outdoor gear.
With the new pink tortoiseshell color combined with the iconic retro shape, the Clubmaster Sunglasses ($176) have distinct summer appeal. They're the perfect finishing touch for flirty, feminine pieces — throw them on with your tiered dresses, smocked tops, and ruffled bikinis!
