Since 1937, Ray-Ban has produced some of the best sunglasses available anywhere. With the introduction of timeless designs like the Aviator, Wayfarer, and Clubmaster, Ray-Ban shaped how we see sunglasses, changing our perception of them as a purely functional tool to a statement-making fashion accessory. As one of the biggest brands in sunglasses, Ray-Ban offers seemingly endless options, including variations that riff on the classic styles we all know. So we looked at the entire list and narrowed it down to a collection of what we deem the best Ray-Ban sunglasses this year.
To create our list, we considered the popularity of these sunglasses today and their staying power—we think the best sunglasses are in style now, but will remain so in the long run—as well as features and options. The best Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses, the RB3025, are not only preferred by celebrities and everyday shoppers, but they still perform to the exacting standards of the pilots who popularized the design more than 50 years ago. At the same time, the best Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, the New Wayfarer, represent a fresh, modern take on the classic original.
From the best polarized Ray-Ban sunglasses, to the brand’s best prescription sunglasses, you’ll find them all in our collection that promises to delight even the most demanding sunglasses shopper
