Giant Vintage's range of retro sunglasses is on hand to help you choose the best eyewear accessories. We've got "true vintage," unique glasses you won't find anywhere else.

Discover what's in this summer and find your style with our online guide to the best glasses of the season.

Sunglasses Trends for Summer

Staying in fashion means combining your own personal sense of style with what's hot. We've got women's and men's sunglasses, polarized sunglasses, and more in our online store. Here are just some of the highlights of our exciting summer collection.

Embrace the '80s

Ever since Stranger Things hit screens a few years ago everyone has become a bit '80s obsessed. And we love it. There are so many great '80s sunglasses styles to discover from oversized frames to sporty glasses that were just made to go with a shell suit.

These HUNT slim '80s sunglasses are available in black but for true nostalgia, it's got to be the tortoiseshell option. These deadstock originals are brought back to life thanks to our dedicated buyers and stylists.

Alternatively, you might like the SMIRK classic sunglasses. The subtle stripes in the jelly frame combined with the classic styling make these perfect for lazy days by the pool.

Subtle and Slim

While we love a pair of oversized sunglasses, we've noticed that slender and rimless glasses are making a comeback. Good news for those who like styles that are a bit more subtle. Oval-shaped frames help reduce the height of some, while others go "semi-rimless" for a lighter look. There's a lot of choice in this style, both for women and men.

True vintage IDENTICAL rimless sunglasses come in a range of cool-colored lenses which are hung from the frame making them entirely rimless. Many people prefer rimless glasses for better visibility and a reduced overall weight.

Alternatively, you could shop for ones like these HARDCORE Small Clear Rectangular 90s Glasses. Their short height and rectangular frames make these a statement piece without being ostentatious.

Back to the '90s

The '90s is the decade that just won't quit. There have been more '90s fashion revivals this century than there have been girl band reunions. Don't worry, you don't have to be a major Spice Girls fan to get your '90s cool on. Our collection boasts smart girl-boss-style glasses, cool chunky frames, and bold oversized looks, to name just a few.

We love these PLASTIC Oversized Y2K Sunglasses that will certainly make you stand out in any crowd. The extra-large frames are bold but also increase visibility. Our favorite color combo is definitely the brown and gold which will match any '90s outfit, especially if you embrace a bit of bling.

Or you could head into the realms of subculture with these TWIN PEAKS Steampunk 90s Sunglasses. The suspended oval lenses are dark and stylish, but the light frame makes them comfortable enough for a full day by the pool.

Aviators Are Back

Did they ever go away? Not really, but you can bet your bottom dollar you'll be seeing a lot more of them this summer. Aviators come in a surprising number of styles, including women's and men's sunglasses, and you can find polarized sunglasses or standard. Here are just a few of our favorites.

The ZING Aviator Sunglasses offer a slightly slimmer silhouette than standard aviators. These combine a subtle tortoiseshell rim with full UB protection to help you get the most out of summer.

For a more nostalgic look, check out these LIGHTENING Square Aviator Sunglasses, recently showcased by Reneé Rapp. Optical quality frames mean you can get these glasses fitted with prescription lenses. The LIGHTENING Aviators are part of Giant Vintage's exclusive Luxe Vintage range.

Sporty Shades

If you prefer to be in the pool rather than lounging around it, a pair of sporty sunglasses perfectly complements your active lifestyle. Shop for wrap-around shades, colorful glasses, or something that looks superbly streamlined.

The CONTROLLA Sporty Sunglasses have a truly unique look. They're vintage-inspired, which means our in-house designers have based the style on beloved vintage designs. But they've tweaked them to bring you something completely new.

If you want something that harks back to the era of spandex and leg warmers, check out the RADICAL Sporty Shield 80s Sunglasses. These colorful sunglasses are a truly standout accessory and sure to turn heads.

Why Buy Retro Sunglasses?

Our glasses are deadstock which means they are vintage, have never been worn before and have been rediscovered and given a new purpose and life. Since we're able to access these incredible vintage treasures, we can repurpose them to give you the best choice of styles for women, men, and kids. USA Today says Giant Vintage is a "...fantastic resource to collect vintage and vintage-inspired styles at a bargain." Here are just a few more reasons to buy your summer sunglasses from us.
