The 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto are now over, but we loved watching all the action! These games have been running since 2014, a competition specifically for injured and sick ex-servicemen and women from across the globe.
Having been established by Prince Harry, the games have gone from strength to strength over the years, with now seventeen countries taking place in 2017’s event in Toronto.
We have pulled together some of the best eyewear looks from the games so far and similar eyewear picks from SelectSpecs’ collection. Keep reading to discover how you can get the look!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
With actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry making their first official public appearance together at the games this year, we couldn’t miss taking a look at their eyewear!
Meghan wears some gorgeous round retro style sunnies, with tortoiseshell frames. They look great teamed with her oversized shirt and jeans combination. You can get her look with the Carducci Sun CD1049. These are a very similar style and probably at a much more reasonable cost!
Harry is wearing a tortoiseshell pair of wayfarer sunglasses, which once again have a retro feel to them. These style of sunglasses are super easy to wear and make a great everyday go-to pair.
Get the look with the Polaroid PLD 2049/S. These havana print sunnies also have green tinted lenses, which are fab for very bright light conditions.
Get patriotic and support your country’s competitors with some colourful sunglasses like the supporter is wearing above! SelectSpecs sell a huge range of colourful sunglasses which will help you show everyone where your loyalties lie!
Get the look with the Polaroid PLD 6024/S. They feature a dark blue frame and dark blue tinted polarized lenses.

You can’t go wrong with a decent pair of wraparound sports sunglasses which are great for an active lifestyle. Take a look at the American Air Force competitor above wearing a pair of white sports sunglasses during his running event.
Get the look with the Bolle Highwood. These sunglasses are made from a soft grip material which will keep them in place during a workout, and blue polarized lenses which will help protect eyes from glare.
Black Wraparound Sunglasses
Pictured above (right) is Ivan Castro, who is a US Army Officer who lost his eyesight during combat in Iraq in 2006. Despite this, he still serves in the US Special Forces as an Officer and still competes in various marathons and athletic competitions.
Get his sunglasses look with the Bolle Spiral. These have a black frame and dark grey polarized lenses and a snug wraparound design once again. These are a great pair to wear for high impact sports or activity requires rapid movement, as they will effectively stay put on your face!
