When it comes to statement designer sunglasses, you can bank on Céline to deliver. The French brand has become the destination for distinctive, outfit-defining sunnies, with a new must-have shape arriving every single season. While Céline bags might require a hefty budget of a couple thousand pounds, a standout pair of sunnies is a lower-priced investment we can justify. In fact, we know plenty of girls who have worn their investment eyewear on repeat for years now. If you're considering buying a Céline pair but aren't sure where to start, let us run you through the eight most iconic styles. From the Audrey with its distinctive round frames to the more directional Mask, scroll below for your complete guide to the best Céline sunglasses to shop right now.
Style Notes: Spotted at Copenhagen Fashion Week on Pernille Teisbaek, the Mask is one of those key Céline styles that makes a simple outfit feel infinitely cooler in seconds. Style yours just like Pernille with a white shirt tied at the waist, black tailored trousers and chunky gold jewellery.
Style Notes: If anyone knows about investment accessories, it's Anna Vitiello. The & Finally co-founder chose the Marta style, which is ideal for those looking for a classic shape with a trend-led twist.
Style Notes: If there's one pair we spot on every single street styler, it's the Edge. This super-sleek option is statement-making and incredibly versatile. They look every bit as good with denim as they do with an elegant wedding guest outfit.
Style Notes: Minimalists look away now—the jumbo sized, round-frame Butterfly style worn by Monikh Dale sits low on the cheekbones and is guaranteed to get you noticed.
Style Notes: While a bold, oversized pair sure is tempting, the Kate, with its square edges and timeless tortoiseshell finish, is also well worth thinking about.
#6. Cat Eye
Style Notes: These might not be timeless, but they're one of the brand's most-spotted styles. Choose between the rainbow shades on offer (think lime green, cobalt blue or red), or keep it chic with the black mirrored iteration.
Style Notes: Every wardrobe needs a "wear with everything" pair of black sunglasses, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a style more wearable (and more recognisable) pair than the Audrey.
Style Notes: If you're not so into subtle sunnies or fashion's unwavering obsession with teeny-tiny retro frames right now, why not try the Shadow style?
