    1. Warby Parker is a glasses powerhouse, but their five-day, five-frames free trial also extends to a selection of sunglasses so you can find your perfect pair.

    instagram.com

    Why it's great: If you're looking for high-quality sunglasses, look no further than Warby Parker. Not only do they have great glasses, but you can also get prescription or regular sunglasses that are cute and on trend. They're also so sure that their glasses are scratch-resistant that they'll replace your lenses if they scratch at any time during the first year. Plus, free shipping and returns.

    Styles we love: Harris (above top, $95+, available in black, brown, and tan), Lola (above middle, $95+, available in marble and dark blue), Winnie ($145+, available in pink and black), and Raglan ($95+, available in black, pink, and tortoise).

    instagram.com, madewell.com

    Why it's great: Madewell offers quality jeans and clothes, but their sunglasses are also top-notch. Reviews rave about the quality for the price (all are under $100) and the endless compliments they get when wearing them. Reviewers also say they fit narrow faces well.

    instagram.com, instagram.com

    Why it's great: Zenni offers "eyewear for everyone," and their price point and customization level is pretty ridiculous.

    Why it's great: Yes, you've probably seen these advertised a million times by "celebs" on your Instagram feed, but DIFF has some seriously awesome sunglasses with lots of sparkling reviews.
