If you look around the shops for a new pair of sunglasses as the sun comes out, it seems like the same styles pop up every year, in every shop!

The black and brown colour, with either a wayfarer or aviator style seems to be pretty much all that's offered down the high street.

At Cooler, following the crowd and wearing the same as everyone else is not something we are interested in, so we've had a scour and found some awesome alternatives!

From funky lenses to fashion forward frames, no one will be wearing sunglasses like yours at the BBQ this year!


Price: £35.00

These Le Specs neo noir mirrored glasses are such a great statement against delicate summer outfits.

We love the thick rims and aggressive shape and the way the light blue mirrored lenses clash against the tortoiseshell frame.

These glasses have attitude!


Price: £147.00

There was a period around four years ago when heart shaped became a bit of a thing.

The plastic red heart frames could be spotted at any festival or poolside for one summer, then suddenly, they disappeared once again.

We liked the novelty of the red 'Lolita' style specs, however this more grown up version from Wildfox is definitely more up our street.

These small heart glasses will set off a round shaped face perfectly, while looking more summer chic than Russian literary nymph!


Price: £50.00

These glittery green frames sum up everything we love about summer, bright, happy and just a little bit childish!

Roxy has some great styles this summer to choose between and while we love these specs, we've also fallen for at least another three rad pairs from the collection!

Take a look for yourself!


Price: £25.00

These glasses make us want to star in an Kraftwerk music video.

While everyone else is donning themselves in florals and pretty rounded rims, stand out from the crows and team these futuristic frames with a light, simple tailored look.

Best of all, these sunglasses will look super rad to dance in when your rocking out at outdoor concerts this summer!

Vans never ceases to surprise us with its new collections.

This summer, the brand have got some pretty out-there designs going on, which is why we so shocked to find these gorgeous floral specs in the mix.

The rounded shape of the glasses keep the look edgy, while the floral pattern juxtaposes the style with a softer aesthetic.

We want to throw these on when we've got beach hair going on, with a good white cotton t short and our old faithful denim shorts- easy!


Price: £15.00

Freepeople is our go-to for really well made, boho styles, so we were excited to see their sunglasses offering this year.

They did not disappoint! These perfect Lennon style hippy specs are the perfect size to avoid looking too 60's fancy dress party and look incredible with a floaty summer dress.

The lenses come in a variety of different colours, from the green above to pale pink, blue, yellow and more.


Price: £16.00

We love these Jeepers Peepers specs!

They make us want to don a neckerchief and go for a weekend away in a open top convertible...

This sunglasses brand is always a lot cheaper than we expect it to be and their glasses last for ages!

What could have been a normal pair of aviators is instead an entire rainbow.

How awesome are these lenses?!

With the unpredicatable British weather, we want these glasses to brighten up any grey day!
