The 10 Best high-street sunglasses

1. Urban Outfitters £18, urbanoutfitters.co.uk Supersized lenses and a delicate frame ensure that the Harry Potter and John Lennon references won't fly. The sepia tint makes everything pleasingly lo-fi too.
2. Gap £19.95, gap.co.uk The aviator is a style classic, and the hot pink frame on these is a fun but subtle way to update a favourite – not everyone can pull off Timmy Mallett wackiness.
3. Boden £49.99, boden.co.uk This classic shape won't go out of style, and the understated colours are a nice detail for those who are allowed up close and personal enough to you to notice.
4. Asos £15, asos.com For those who like their nod to the Fifties with a dose of Americana, this pair is perfect for riding around in cars with boys – silk headscarf optional.
5. Topshop £16, topshop.com Retro roundness is flattened and made modern in this lavender pair and further accented by a keyhole detail which emulates more expensive shades.
6. Oasis £14, oasis-stores.com Tortoiseshell is so wearable because it looks great on most colourings. The softly tinted lenses on this wayfarer style are pleasingly bookish too.
7. Biba £75, houseoffraser.co.uk The oversized frames and metalwork logo epitomise the Seventies glamour this relaunched iconic label was best known for. Luxury yacht not included.
8. Mango £19.99, mango.com These fold-up, wayfarer-style shades are a fun way to wear this season's candy coloured trend. The collapsible design suits stowing in your hand luggage.
9. Very £17, very.co.uk The cat's eye shape is so flattering. The softened angles and minimal details will suit most face shapes without making you feel like you're wearing fancy dress.
10. Accessorize £12, accessorize.com This feminine floral print is a discreet way to wear one of the season's key trends. Why not create a clash by wearing them with flower-printed clothing?

Keep a pair of well-priced shades on hand for those rare occasions when the sun peeks out from behind the clouds.
