Sunglasses aren't just a summer accessory.

The summer might be coming in a close, but sunglasses aren’t just a summer accessory. For those of you that can remember 9th grade Earth Science, you might recall being told that winter in the northern hemisphere actually brings our planet closer to the sun than the summer months. As such, UV radiation is still very much an issue to contend with and you can’t really expect the sun to be any less in your eyes when you’re driving.

So, as the summer winds down, you might want to consider treating yourself to a new pair of sunglasses. If you’re like me, you can’t remember a summer full of fun that you haven’t lost or damaged your favorite pair of sunglasses, but all hope isn’t lost. Instead you can opt for one of these amazing brands available on Amazon for an ultra-convenient replacement pair that will allow you to continue protecting your eyes from sun rays all year long.

Vaurnet Sunglasses

Why We Picked It: A quick Amazon search for “Vaurnet Sunglasses” returns dozens of results in both men’s and women’s styles. Ranging from as low as $19.99, Vuarnet has robust options for a sunglass fanatic with any budget. The above frames are among my favorite of their offerings thanks to the bold color featured on the lenses contrasted with the neutral brown frames that allow them to be a perfect unisex option.

Ray Ban Sunglasses

Why We Picked It: If you’ve ever purchased—or lusted after—a pair of designer sunglasses, chances are you’ve crossed paths with legacy brand, Ray Ban. A quick search for Ray Ban sunglasses on Amazon will return hundreds of results, but the great thing about searching on Amazon as opposed to brick and mortar stores is that many of the prices are slashed. Choose from Hot Trends, Classic Icons, Sports frames, Men’s, Women’s and Kid’s. Find your new favorite pair of sunglasses that’ll last you a lifetime—or at least until your next splurge—without the pressure of high in-store prices. Amazon Ray-Ban prices start as low as $69. The above pair were selected for their unisex functionality as well as the range of lens colors with 100 percent UV protection coating and incredibly durable steel frame.

SUNGAIT Sunglasses

Why We Picked It: Amazon offers everything. Once a retailer for pretty much every brand under the sun—and still is—Amazon has started to create their own in-house brands at more affordable price points so that everyone can have access to the same great products. SUNGAIT is one of those brands. Offering dozens of Men’s, Women’s and Unisex style options, none of SUNGAIT’s sunglasses cost more than $20. The perfect gift to a co-worker, sunglass forgetting friend or purchase for an adventure that you might not want to take your investment pair on, this sunglass brand offers a tremendous amount of variety to their offerings not just by way of numerous color ways but the wide variety of frame shapes, materials and sizes. The above pair is perfect for anyone who likes a classic no frills approach to their daily sunglasses and they’re perfect for men or women.
