Like most, we revel in the chance to bathe in a spot of sunshine the moment that summer rears its beautiful sunny head. The problem is that every year around the same time, we manage to misplace our sunglasses from the previous heatwave. Okay, we lie. We haven't lost our shades at all—we simply want a new pair and, boy, are there some good styles around right now.

We've scoured the best online shops, as well as looking at the biggest trends of the season, to find a multitude of frames you can't fail to fall in love with.

So before you start panicking about what to wear to the office when an inevitable heat wave hits, in the meantime at least make all your outfits summer ready with a decent pair of sunglasses. Tip: Just remember where you keep them for next year, or at least learn to fake such a thing convincingly.
