Designer sunglasses often come with a high price tag, but you don’t have to spend a lot to have a high quality and fashionable pair of sunnies. We’ve gathered some of the best sunglasses dupes for you to give you a designer look at a more affordable price.
The Ray-Ban Erika
A chic look for both men and women, the Ray-Ban Erica sunglasses are a popular choice. Known for their characteristic round lenses, curved, high nose bridge and thicker edges along the nose and the temples. The FGC Sky C01 Smoke Polarised sunglasses are very similar in style, from the same shaped lens down to the slender temple tips.
The Police x Lewis Hamilton aviators
Police recently collaborated with Lewis Hamilton to create a luxurious and unique range of sunglasses. Their Police Lewis Rose Gold sunglasses are a modern take on the aviator, with its straight, gold top bar and round lenses.
