Summer is just around the corner, which means the days are staying lighter for longer, and plans for picnics outdoors are being pencilled into our diaries, especially as lockdown restrictions start to lift.
When we are enjoying the sunshine with a picnic in tow, there are a couple of essentials on our check list: picnic blanket, cooler bag, sun cream and a pair of sunglasses.
Shoppers are preparing for the warmer months, as eyewear company Fashion Eyewear, has found searches for sunglasses have soared to 187% year on year.
Whether you are sitting catching the rays, dining al fresco, reading in the park, driving, or simply want to conceal your tired eyes when you go make-up free, a pair of sunnies is the way forward, and an accessory we, personally, do not leave the house without.
There are a whole host of styles to choose from, from square or round frames, stylish cat eye numbers, oversized designs, as well as classic looks, such as aviator designs, so there is something to suit all face shapes, style preferences, and budgets.
While some have tinted lenses, others are polarised, as well as some with UV protection.
We have curated a selection of the top-rated sunnies to buy now, including Meghan Markle’s go-to summer accessories, so you are ready and raring to enjoy the sunshine.
