Look at any street style star and you know the finishing touch to any great #OOTD is a pair of sunglasses. However, not all of us can afford a pair of designer sunnies — especially when they are so prone to getting damaged or lost.
But that doesn’t mean a love for sunglasses has to be relegated to cheap frames found at fast fashion or accessories stores. There are plenty of cool sunglasses brands out there that offer high-quality, stylish eyewear that won’t do too much damage on your wallet.
Below, 11 cool brands that offer sunglasses under $150:
This Toronto-based brand offers high-end sunglasses at shockingly low prices. Each frame is hand-crafted using polarized lenses (exclusively produced for MarsQuest by prestigious manufacturers) which provide enhanced glare reduction and 100 per cent UV protection.
Designer-grade eyewear at fast-fashion prices. Montreal eyewear brand BonLook manufactures and distributes all of their sunglasses (and prescription glasses) in-house, bumping out the middleman and the cost, in the process.
SunSki’s frames are perfect for travel — they’re durable enough for an adventure, stylish enough so you don’t look like a tacky tourist and wallet-friendly so you won’t feel too bad if you lose them along the way.
Not only are Dharmo Co’s sunglasses stylish and affordable, but they are also ethically sourced and give back. With every purchase on the website, a percentage of profits is donated to long time Dharma partner charity, Optometry Giving Sight.
As an Asian woman with high cheekbones and a lower nose bridge, Faith Smith struggled to find sunglasses that fit her face. Enter Yay Sunshine. The Australian-based founder launched a new range of Asian-fit sunglasses that have been specifically selected to fit properly, but look great too.
