The summer wedding season is upon us. Whether you’re a wedding guest, part of the inner wedding party, life and soul of the stag, a groomsman, or the groom, getting suited up requires some great accessories to match.
Sunglasses are a great way of elevating your wedding wardrobe and keep you from squinting in those wedding shots. Plus, a good quality pair of shades are a fantastic investment, seeing you through every event, holiday or pub crawl for years to come.
Here are some of the best men’s sunglasses for weddings, including some of the best designer eyewear to invest in.
A brow bar helps to create the impression of a square jaw, giving you that chiselled look (think Brad Pitt, David Beckham or Matt Bomer). While tortoise shell gives you that classic summer vibe. Finished off with gold metal detailing, these Serengeti BORON frames make a sophisticated choice for men’s sunglasses and men’s wedding guest sunglasses.
A smarter take on everyone’s go-to aviators, the Chopard SCHF79 sunglasses make Ray-Bans look kinda boring. The brow bar helps to frame your face, and the geometric lens is just that bit more polished and elevated than your everyday aviator shades. If you’ve got a mate’s wedding or a big summer event planned where you need to look your best, these are the perfect upgrade.
There’s something very suave about these designer men’s sunglasses – which we think are totally worth the investment. The matte gunmetal finish is a level up from your typical black or brown eyewear range, ensuring you have a polished accessory to match your favourite suit.
The price isn’t for the fainthearted – but if you’re the groom, the best man, or just the guy who upstages everyone else at weddings, the Bvlgari BV5048K frames are for you.
Giorgio Armani AR6017TK
Luxury eyewear that’s edgy and different….and dare we say it, a little bit “hipster”. We know, we know, the hipster label has been overused in recent years, but that doesn’t stop us from coveting this street style trend.
The Giorgio Armani AR6017TK sunglasses feature a retro round lens, slick gunmetal detailing, and a super thick wooden brow bridge with matching wood finish temple tips. The finished effect? “Look at me” and “low-key” all rolled into one.
Lanvin Paris LNV612S
Bold, attention-seeking, and the perfect balance of smart/casual. You love your festival wayfarers, but need something a little smarter. The Lanvin Paris LNV612S frames tick all of these boxes. They take a classic wayfarer silhouette, which is great for framing your face, and the versatile design makes them suitable for every kind of summer event – from weddings and galas to your best mate’s barbeque or a few rounds at the pub.
Step things up a notch with these Rag&Bone RNB5034/G/S sunglasses, designed for the man who loves his Ray-Ban Clubmasters but wants something luxury. Price-wise, it’s a little bit more. But style-wise, it’s got all the extra details to take you from beer garden to posh country manor.
Tapered arms and gold detailing denote quality, and the dark Havana colourway creates a timeless vibe that complements formal wardrobes. Luxury barns, stately homes or marquees – we’ve got you covered for every style of venue.
The round aviator is a modern twist on a classic. Bored of the same old frames that have graced every stag, ceremony, outdoor event and party? Aviators are the type of sunglasses that go everywhere with us, so it’s nice to have something with a point of difference.
These Persol PO2496S men’s sunglasses can give your outfit a fresh new look, and the gold metal finish gives you a sophisticated edge while staying on trend.
