Made in the Shade

I blame my blogger friends for my latest obsession with collecting sunglasses.  And while I can't afford to stock up on designer lenses, I have found some budget-friendly frames that mimic the popular, more expensive styles.  Here are my penny-pincher picks, all less than $30:


H&M (Gold) - $5.95/XOXO (Silver) - $18.20/ASOS (Rose Gold) - $21.49

Oh I love this post!!! I hardly ever buy expensive sunglasses because I tend to either sit on them or have them fall on the floor and break. So I usually go for low budget shades and I like the ones you picked. Have a wonderful Thursday! xo, Christina

I'm a sucker for sunnies :) Most of mine are from Target but I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of awesome deals on Poshmark! I got a gorgeous pair of brand new Michael Kors for $50. And a pair of Chanel for $65!

i only own two pairs of sunnies and they are both a few years old. i ALMOST bought the house of harlow nicole sunnies last night and then i read reviews that they were HUGE (like bigger than normal HUGE...even for oversized) so now i am going to wait and try them on before buying online. my head is small =( there are some super cute options in this roundup!

For years I've been collecting sunglasses. While the majority of them are bargain finds, I do own a couple of Betsey Johnson sunglasses... but I'm itching to get a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs shades. Maybe after my shopping challenge is over.. = P

Loving aviators and wayfarers these days. Can't adjust to some of the bigger frames... my head is already large enough! :)

Rachel said...

I love that you kept these all at such a low price! I'm so tired of people bragging about their designer sunglasses, only to lose or scratch them a month later (there goes $200 down the drain!)

Love these sunglasses-especially the H&M aviators. Sadly I wear prescription sunglasses which means I'm limited to one pair. Whomp whomp.
fun post!

I cannot buy designer sunglasses...I go through sunglasses so quickly because I just jam them in my purse and they break! Great picks here!

I think your aviator suggestions are great for a budget. I have a lovely pair of Fendi aviators (a gift, I was sooo grateful!) but my friend has a pair that were no money at all and I can hardly them apart :-)

Great picks! I have a pair of designer shades that I received as a gift that I wear all the time. However, I love budget friendly ones especially if I am worried I might lose them (like at the beach or lake).
