Everything looks cooler with sunglasses on, so it stands to reason that wearing sunglasses designed by fashion influencers would make one look about a thousand times cooler! I always love to see fashion brands collaborate with influencers and bridge the gap between influencer and brand audiences. Right now, sunglasses brands in particular are partnering with major influencers, while other influencers are launching their own standalone brands. Keep scrolling for 5 of these collections and my shopping picks:

You probably know Mikayla Jane from her personality-driven beauty tutorials and hilariously honest product reviews, so it is fitting that her latest collaboration is with dime Optics for a line of sunglasses that will serve as the perfect accessories to any makeup look. Mikayla explains, "I created this to represent my style: fun, bold, yet sophisticated” and that she loves “to pair [sunglasses] with my bold makeup looks. It really ties everything together.”

Marta Pozzan x AperçuMarta Pozzan x Aperçu
Marta Pozzan is an actress, model, writer, and activist who is known for her chic Italian style and innovative style. Her collaboration with Aperçu was especially fitting, as she is a self-described sunglasses aficionado who never leaves the house without a pair. With my Aperçu collaboration, my goal is to promote respect, love, and a playfulness that we should all feel when it comes to fashion,” Pozzan says of her frames, which come in 5 fashionable colors.
