Sunglasses are one of the most versatile items in our accessories closet. True, your sunglasses might be there to protect your eyes from the sun and prevent your skin from getting premature wrinkles.

For those of us that live for Instagram though, our sunglasses pose a much greater purpose – they help us look our best and sassiest self on social media.

So, if you want to look as good as a celebrity online, you need the best in this season’s designer frames. Which is why we’ve put together this handy list of the best sunglasses on the market right now. Just think, any one of these frames could instantly boost your followers!

Ray-Ban Nina


If you truly want to wow your Instagram followers with your sassiest self, there is absolutely nothing sassier than cat-eye sunglasses. Which is why we absolutely adore the Ray-Ban Nina collection with its classic cat-eye that’s been transformed into modern times curtesy of Siberian DJ Nina Kraviz.

Ideal for both day and night looks, these sunglasses are the epitome of this season’s style and sass. Which means, if you want to beat all those other social media influencers, you need to get these in your shopping bag ASAP.

Even better, if you like the idea of Ray-Ban, this brand allows you to customise many of their sunglasses, including the colour of your lenses. This means you can hone your new sunglasses to your own personal style. You can even add prescription lenses to these sunglasses, ideal for when you’re driving or replying to all those Insta comments.

Le Specs Petit Panthère


If you like the idea of cat-eye sunglasses but you want something a little slicker, then the Le Specs Petit Panthère specs could be your perfect match. These sunglasses, which are like a wonderful throwback to fashion from the nineties, are known for their micro-lens cat-eyes. That’s because the lenses here are much smaller, with distinct angles. Which is what makes these sunglasses feel so trendy and sassy.

Plus, the cherry on top here is the fact that these sunglasses all come with a gold chain designed by Jordan Askill. This means, even when you’re not wearing your gorgeous sunglasses, you’ll still look incredibly fashionable.

Dolce & Gabbana Cuore Sacro


If you’re looking for style and sass, you can’t go wrong with Dolce and Gabbana. Not only are D&G one of the most recognised designer brands across the globe, their Cuore Sacro sunglasses are the best in oversized cat-eyes. Not only is bigger better, but these sunglasses will hide a multitude of sins. Which means if you don’t have time to do a full glam make-up look, you’ll still look incredibly stylish.

These sunglasses aren’t just for looks though, they also give you 100% UV protection and are suitable for prescription lenses.

Versace Medusa Ares


If you want to look like a sassy rebel, you’ll need a pair of sunglasses that emit a deep dose of rock and roll. Which is where the Versace Medusa Ares sunglasses come in. Big, bold and studded, these sunglasses are not only rebellious, but they also give you an intense sense of glamour. Which means you get the best of both worlds.
