How many sunglasses should you own?

When it comes to shopping for designer sunglasses, it’s fair to say that you’re definitely spoilt for choice. At Designer Sunnies, we sell a range of fabulous designer sunnies from some of the world’s biggest designer brands, and whatever the occasion there is the perfect style out there for you – you just need to know which pair of sunglasses will suit you best!

If you’ve ever wondered how many sunglasses should you own, we’ve put together a list of some suggested occasions for wearing them along with some examples of the most popular designer brands and styles to help you decide – the toughest decision will be deciding which one to add to your collection first!


When it comes to getting behind the wheel, the most important thing is making sure that you are able to see the road clearly. And when the sun is shining (especially during the winter when it’s lower in the sky and can make it harder to see), this means putting on a pair of designer sunglasses that will let enough light into your eyes and reduce glare but most importantly won’t affect your visibility.

If you’re thinking about what style of sunglasses are best to be worn while you’re driving, then a pair of oversized sunnies is what you’re looking for! This will help reduce your peripheral vision and make it easier for you to see the road, and polarised lenses will also help to reduce glare too.

Some of our favourite designer sunglasses brands that are perfect to be worn while driving are the Valentino V612s 004 with their chic two toned frames, or the Polo Ralph Lauren PH3093 for the gents


When you’re thinking of the best pair of sunglasses to wear while you’re out and about shopping, you need a pair that will not only help you feel chic and stylish, but they need to be practical and match your outfit too.

If you’re looking for a new pair of designer sunglasses to wear on a day to day basis for activities such as shopping, the possibilities are almost endless – you just need to work out what look you want to go for when it comes to deciding which ones to buy. For example, do you want your sunglasses to work as an accessory for a cool and trendy look, or do you want them to have a practical use if your eyes are particularly sensitive to the artificial light that is commonly found in shops?

If you’re planning on visiting the shops soon, then we’ve picked out two of our favourite designer sunglasses styles which are bound to compliment your look. For example, what about the Bvlgari 6083 with their beautiful cats eye frames, or the Emporio Armani EA 4023 with their cool brown tinted lenses?


If a holiday to you means sitting by the pool or lying on the beach soaking up some rays, then you need to ensure that you wear designer sunglasses that will protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun.

When it comes to picking a pair of sunnies to take on your next trip, you need a style that will prevent any lasting damage from UVA and UVB rays, which means going for oversized or wraparound frame. Not only will these also help to protect the soft tissue around your eyes, but choosing polarised lenses will help to reduce the glare of the sun too.

For some inspiration for your next sunbathing session, we just love the Yves Saint Laurent YSL 6358, as well as the hip and trendy Diesel DL0037 90C – both classic styles that will ensure you look your best while you top up your tan!

Fishing and skiing

If the perfect day for you involves sitting by a lake for a spot of fishing, or hitting the slopes on a skiing trip, then you’ll know that having a good pair of sunglasses is essential. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a pair of new sunglasses for these activities is that you’ll need some that will protect your eyes against the glare of the sun on the water and the snow, which means choosing some with polarised lenses.

If you love spending time in the great outdoors then we’ve got two perfect pair of designer sunglasses for you – how about the Calvin Klein CK415s, or the Oakley Holbrook Metal? Not only will you cool super cool, but you’ll be safe in the knowledge that the glare from the sun won’t be getting in the way of you enjoying yourself!
