Oakley BXTR

R&B singer Ciara was spotted making a fashion statement during a recent trip to Japan. Once dubbed the Princess of Crunk, Ciara sported a pair of oversized, sporty Oakley sunglasses to match her motorcyclist-inspired getup. Oakley’s BXTR frames come in six different shades and were designed to pay homage to Baxter Street, a well-known skate spot in Los Angeles. To make this look your own, allow the sunglasses to become the focal point of your outfit by pairing them with baggy jeans and a moto jacket.

Ray-Ban Reverse Wayfarer

Refresh your sunglasses wardrobe with styles from Ray-Ban’s Reverse collection. The brand has taken its beloved classics including the Aviator, Wayfarer, Caravan, and Boyfriend styles, and shifted the shape of the lenses from traditional convex to concave. Prior to their official release, you may have seen the Reverse Wayfarers frames from Ray-Ban walk down the red carpet on singer Labrinth. Not only are these unique frames sure to draw attention, but they are also crafted to follow the contours of the cheekbone, ensuring a flawless fit that can be pulled off by anyone.

Costa Del Mar Tuna Alley Pro

If you’re looking for something that is both trendy and can withstand heavy outdoor activities, the Tuna Alley Pro sunglasses on Costa Del Mar are perfect for you. These frames are made with premium lenses that filter reflective glare, making them ideal for bright, full-sun situations on the open water and offshore. They’re also made with a special coating that is extra resistant to scratching and creates a barrier that repels water, oil, and sweat. Regardless of whether your preferred activity is hiking, fishing, or just sightseeing, these sunglasses will make for the perfect companion.

Oakley Eye Jacket Redux

Like many trends, it’s vital to have a style inspiration. When it comes to combining athleisure and sportswear to create eye-catching ensembles, no one comes close to Bella Hadid. To replicate her trendsetting street style, go with the Eye Jacket Redux from Oakley. At first, many of us shuddered at these dad-like wraparound frames. But something about the way Hadid styles them with 90s low-rise cargo pants and midriff-baring tops has us wanting to cop a pair or two!

Burberry Briar

The Briar frames by Burberry are for those who are not quite sold on the idea that sporty sunglasses can be cute. These sunglasses feature a square, cat-eye silhouette. They’re much more subdued than oversized shield designs, yet the blue-tinted lenses and signature Burberry check still give off a playful quality.

No longer are wraparound sunglasses limited to yoga moms or dads on their yearly fishing trips. Athleisure sunglasses have become go-to accessories for supermodels and fashion gurus alike, and with good reason. Sunglasses are an easy way to add a touch of outdoor chic to any outfit without having to overhaul your entire wardrobe.
