Too many sunglasses, too little time. InStyle's Hannah Lewis on the styles you should be buying this summer
Summer fashion can be hard work. Shorts = give us 24 hours to cleanse, buff and fake tan. Bikinis = instant regret over those cancelled HIIT classes. Spaghetti straps = yikes, where did those biceps go? Sunglasses, though? Now you're talking. Sunglasses hide a multitude of sins, from a big night out, to those wrinkles that just keep coming.
Here's our pick of the most Insta-worthy shades hitting stores for Summer 2017.
Look out for:

Think va-va voom! From rose to orange, tinted lenses are a huge thing right now and we’re thrilled to see that Kendall and Gigi agree with rock their colour-tinted-aviators. Acne's uber cool round frames are leading the way with this trend and high street store River Island has totally nailed it, too.
Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana have gone all-out with their embellished and glittering oversized square frames - not your everyday wear-to-work sunnies, we'll admit, but they’ll look great when you’re sunning it up at a beach club.
Matte-coloured rectangle frames, to be precise. Cutler and Gross and Urban Outfitters will have the perfect pair you’re looking for.
Shop the coolest pairs in the edit above, plus we've dug out what’s new in your favourite tortoise-shell tones and covered the classics, from Celine to H&M. After all, where would Victoria Beckham be without her dark oversized frames?
Now it’s just down to you not sit on them!
