4 Sunglasses Women Are Buying Right Now
Is it actually summer if you have yet to find the perfect pair of summer shades? One of the benefits of a high-quality pair of sunglasses is their ability to transition effortlessly to every occasion. The right pair of sunglasses can elevate any summer look, whether you’re beach hopping with friends or enjoying cocktails at sunset. Gone are the days when sunglasses are solely used for protection from the elements. Luxury shades are undoubtedly one of the most essential accessories to complete your insta-worthy summertime look.
The sunglasses industry is competitive, and new brands on the block like Akoni and Rigards do everything they can to set themselves apart from more established brands like Jacques Marie Mage. However, buyers benefit tremendously from the competitive nature of the fashion world, giving us seemingly endless options of one-of-a-kind shades.

JOHANN WOLFF | ANNA
Johann Wolff prides itself on creating easy-to-wear frames that are sure to compliment the broadest range of trends and aesthetics. If we look at the Anna frame, we see they are perfect for those who prioritize a sharp and clean look. The Annas best-fit medium to large faces with its slightly oversized frames.
And what’s more is that the cores are made from custom stainless steel for strength and durability, meaning they are built to last! An added bonus? The Annas come in a whopping twelve different colors, from the classic matte black to army green, to the historically popular tortoise pattern.
JACQUES MARIE MAGE | SCHINDLER
What do you get when you combine a subtle cat eye with a funky geometric shape? The gorgeous Jacques Marie Mage Schindler frame. These frames are indeed the best of both worlds, making them a no-brainer summer pick for women. The slight cateye gives the wearer a refined, classic look, while the geometric shape of the eyes provides a unique twist bound to turn heads.
With a 44mm eye frame, these shades best fit medium to small faces. The Schindlers are made from Premium Japanese Acetate. This frame is sophisticated enough to pair with an elegant evening outfit and casual enough to keep in your bag for running errands after a yoga class.

RIGARDS | RGOOUW5
Next up, we have the incomparable Rigards RG00W5 frame, an exclusive collaboration between Rigards and Chinese fashion designer Uma Wang. Wang is known for prioritizing texture and textiles in her clothing lines. The texture is undoubtedly the first thing you will notice with these classic round shades.
Both Rigards and Wang approached the collaboration with the desire to use natural materials and embracing the varieties that come with handmade craftsmanship. What sets this special collab collection apart are the aged and worn titanium frames, giving the sunglasses a purposeful “lived in” look. These shades are perfect for island hopping and summer traveling to rich historical sites.
AKONI | EUROPA
Akoni has remained a brand to watch since the Swiss-born luxury eyewear company launched in 2019. Akoni advertises itself as a new kind of eyewear brand, focusing on utilizing the latest technologies and materials. Their inspiration draws from the art, design, and fashion world.
We are particularly excited about the Europa frame for its squared-off aviator design, a modern interpretation of the classic aviator frame. Fun fact: The squared aviator frames were designed to fit under next-generation flight helmet visors. The Europas are great for all facial types due to their slightly smaller lenses than a classic aviator frame. These are the perfect shades for a more gender-fluid aesthetic.
