When it comes to sunglass design right now, flat is big. Swerve-y, zero-curve shades now grace the faces of nearly every influencer and festival enthusiast, and the much-hyped Warby Parker x Off-White collaboration flat-lens shades sold out within days of their release. They come in silhouettes that range from bat-winged to rounded, and like this summer’s other cult shades—those Kurt Cobain–inspired clout goggles—flat-lens sunglasses take commitment to pull off. To be clear, these won’t replace your trusty Wayfarers; they’re a much more advanced style move. As always, when you’re trying out a new trend, best to dip your toe rather than dive in. Go for frames with lenses in green, gray, brown, or blue—hold off on the mirrored lenses for now. Here are ten pairs worth a try.
