Ready to make the ultimate statement with your face? Enter the latest men’s sunglasses. Gone are the days when your sunglasses were just black and basic. Pick a pair that really showcases your personality and, dare we say, choose a couple of different shades based on the overall look you’re going for. From new wayfarers and classic aviators to colored polarized lenses and even some sleek AF prescription choices, we’ve rounded up the best sunglasses for men (so far) in 2018.
1. New Wayfarer Mens Sunglasses by Ray Ban in Black Matte – Check Price
We love these new Wayfarers because they are a modernized version of the originals, but haven’t changed so much that they’ve lost their legend status. The 60’s are back and still going strong in 2018 and, well, we’re more than ok with that. These lenses give you 100% UV blocking and protection for your eyes. While the matte black is our personal favorite they also come in other cool color options like tortoise, grey, silver, blue, and more.
2. New Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses for Men – Check Price
Aviators aren’t going anywhere and we’re grateful for that. These metal frames come equipped with the coolest rainbow-sheen lenses that block out ultraviolet rays and keep your eyes totally protected.
3. Warby Parker Classic Whiskey Tortoise Mens Sunglasses – Check Price
These tortoise sunglasses are some of the coolest we’ve seen all season. Fun fact: These frames are meticulously polished by hand for three days with a German wax compound before they’re ever sold. They not only protect your eyes thanks to the 100% UV protection, but the anti-scratch coating is included with each pair that Warby Parker sells. Get a pair while you still can!

4. Men’s Dolce & Gabbana Gold Shiny Brown Pilot Sunglasses – Check Price
One of our favorite designers, these Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses are classic, iconic, and make you look like you’re red carpet ready. The frames are thin and simple and can be paired up with your work suit, favorite pair of jeans, or driving around down. These are more of a brownish-gold have polycarbonate lenses and are perfect for any face shape, especially heart, oval, or square.
5. Markham Brushed Black Ink Retro Sunglasses – Check Price
How cool are these sunglasses?! The rectangular shape and wider fit make these the perfect pair when you’re looking for something that gives you total eye protection and fits your face perfectly (unless you have a tiny head and, if that’s the case, no judgements from us!). As an added bonus, these black retro sunglasses have PVC nose pads that helps to prevent your sunnies from slipping down your nose and reduces added pressure too. It’s a real win-win.
6. Persol Brown/Blue Designer Sunglasses for Men – Check Price
You really can’t go wrong with Persol. Their vintage look is part of their exclusive ‘Typewriter Edition Collection’ where the small lines that are are engraved on the temple mimics the rays of the typewriter. So much detail is put into these sunglasses that they’ll not only make you look great, but will be a head turner too. When you purchase this pair, you’ll receive a cool sunglass carrying case as well. It’s like a bonus gift! We’ll take it.
7. Men’s Oakley Holbrook Prizm Sunglasses in Black Matte – Check Price
Nothing says sporty, yet cool, sunglasses quite like Oakley. They’ve come along way from just baseball players sporting them. Now they’re perfect for anyone, every day. We love their Prizm lenses which actually makes landscapes crystal clear and vibrant while sharpening visual acuity. While we’re always partial to black-on-black sunglasses, these also come in additional cool color combos like blue, brown, silver, grey, brown, green and more. Mix and match!
8. Haskell Crystal Polarized Sunglasses – Check Price
These crystal clear sunglasses are some of the trendiest we’ve seen in 2018. They’re crafted from customized cellulose acetate that’s cut from one single sheet of acetate so that the color is the same across your entire frame. These, too, are hand-polished for 3 days with wax compound to ensure you’re getting a top quality pair of sunglasses.
9. AX Armani Exchange Matte Black/Grey Men’s Sunglasses – Check Price
These A/X sunnies are stylish A/F. See what we did there? We love that this pair is a combo pair of half matte and half shiny that truly brings them to the next level. Totally eye-catching and perfect for any time of year, really. These come in a black/grey combo as well as a matte black/blue combo. You gotta see those.
10. Men’s Barkley Sunglasses in Antique Shale with Grey/Green Lenses – Check Price
Speaking of two-tones, we can’t get enough of these Barkley sunglasses. The top is shade of black and the bottom of the frames are a brownish all while the lenses are a beachy green/grey. Combined these are such killer sunglasses.
11. Classic Original Ray Ban Aviators – Check Price
Who doesn’t love aviators?! No matter what your face shape is, these look great on just about everyone. Ray-Ban is the brand that started this aviator craze going way back to the 1930s. These are sleek gold with green polarized lenses that bring your overall look to the complete next level. Tom Cruise who?
12. Ray Ban Mirror Collection in Tortoise & Blue – Check Price
Ray-Ban and retailer Sunglass Hut came together to design these beautifully unique sunglasses for Fashion Week. They have brilliant blue mirror lenses and Havana coloration that bring a vintage look to the modern age. You can also get them in a variety of other color options like black/blue, tortoise/green, grey/purple, and more.
