Shady Style for Your Perfect Vacation

Summer is in full swing, which means hot-weather holidays are happening, and we couldn’t be more excited! Every destination calls for a pair of shades to complement your outfits and protect your peepers from the sun. That’s why we’ve gathered a few must-have items (sunnies included) that you need to pack for your next getaway. From city-chic, to beachy, to camping vibes there’s a perfect pair of frames for both guys and gals to rock. Check out what we’ll be bringing along with us on our next adventure, below.

Beach Bound: Surf lovin’ gals know the only things you really need for a day relaxing in the sun is a cute cover-up and an adorable tassel bag. Eye-catching oversized sunnies from SPY are the perfect hue of purple, while the modern take on the familiar tortoise print is cool and casual. Top it off with a straw hat and you’re set!

Guys can indulge in an equally casual look with bright yellow flip-flops and pastel-hued printed swim shorts. Pop on these shades from MYKITA that are equal parts relaxed and sophisticated thanks to their orange color and keyhole bridge detail, and then stretch out on your nautical towel to enjoy the day.


Seeing the Sights: City gals (even if it’s only for the day) need to be comfortable and stylin’. Summer-inspired espadrilles are perfect for walking from sight to sight, while this yellow romper with pompom detailing is easy to throw on for that effortless look. You’ll fit right in with these shades from Kingsley Rowe that feature a subtle feather pattern and a double bridge. Finish off the look with a backpack to tote your essentials.

Guys, comfort is key for you, too, so opt for this fun pair of sneakers in cheerful orange. A simple tee with an all-over print is the perfect backdrop to these grassy green sunglasses from Shwood. Unexpected wood accents on the temples will perfectly juxtapose the concrete jungle you’re exploring. Don’t forget to bring along your vintage camera for snapping pics!

Camping Escapade: If a quiet weekend in the wilderness is more your style, we’ve got you covered. Pack up your supplies in this two-toned backpack and lace up your comfy hiking shoes. A periwinkle blue sweatshirt will not only keep you cozy on cooler nights, but it’ll also keep you lookin’ good throughout your trip. Days on the trail call for sporty shades from Wiley X, but the flash lenses and pop of purple are a hint of unexpected panache.

Outdoorsy guys know this vibrant red rain coat will keep you warm and dry no matter the weather, while a safari-inspired hat is perfect for exploring. Take along this palm leaf water bottle for stylish hydration, and finish off your look with earthy Greg Norman sunnies. Gray and white colorations envelope the classic wayfarer-like profile, while metal accents on the temples add just a hint of flair.
