Amazon Prime Day is a tipping point: It’s that critical moment when you get to gift yourself that treat you’ve been longing for—because for a hot second the price is so great, you’d be kicking yourself forever for missing it.
Stunning high-quality sunglasses come to mind—and at the very top of the pyramid, of course, are Ray-Bans. There’s something transformative about slipping on a pair. Elegance, confidence, character and understated cool take over, even when you’re dressed in your most casual clothes.
If you’ve been a-wishin’ and a-waitin’ for your very Ray-Bans, we’ve got great news: Your shop-portunity has arrived. For Prime Day, Amazon has marked down the perfect pairs. Not that you need any justification (especially with a discount like this), but pros say it’s important to protect your eyes from UV rays year-round.
And if you’re all set with your own Ray-Bans? Check these out as a present for a loved one. The holidays are coming; there’s definitely someone on your list who would flip for this gift.
These classic aviators have hardly changed since they first hit the market — and that’s the way we like them. They feature polarized lenses, 100 percent UV protection and come in three sizes and tons of colors to perfectly suit your face.
“The UV protection is ridiculous — I can literally look at the sun with them on, although I would NOT recommend doing this — and the lenses are the perfect balance between dark and light. I have always been a fan of the aviator style and these definitely do not disappoint!” says a happy shopper.

There’s a reason these sunglasses have a near-perfect rating — they look great on everybody. The rounded wire frame with an angular acetate browline has a lifting effect and flatters every face shape. Plus, they come in 10 colors.
“I absolutely fell in love with these. I received many compliments from my friends, commenting that they had a distinguished look,” says a five-star reviewer. “The glasses feel absolutely great, and I feel very confident going out with them. I definitely recommend this pair to anyone who has a larger, round face and needs an oversized pair of sunglasses.”

These rounded rectangle frames are flattering to every face shape—we bet that when you picture the perfect classic sunglasses, these come to mind.
“I was going to buy the New Wayfarers but these just have the classic look that I love. I am in Arizona and I like the fact that the Original Wayfarer lenses are tilted down which conforms to my face and keeps the sun out. Normally, I am a cheapskate and just buy cheap sunglasses so it was a major decision for me to buy expensive glasses. The retro and classic look of the Original Wayfarer and the excellent quality of the polarized lenses are worth it,” writes a Ray-Ban lover.

There’s something transformative about a retro frame — they feel young and modern yet timeless. This version gives the face a lifted look.
“These sunglasses are well worth the money,” says a reviewer. “They are lightweight and a very comfortable fit. The polarization is perfect in that there is absolutely no glare. It’s like looking at everything in HD. Definitely five stars.”

These sunglasses will challenge anybody who thinks they can’t pull off round frames. They’re super flattering—delicate enough not to overpower your face, but bold enough to make a statement.
“The quality of these Italian-made sunglasses is excellent,” says a reviewer who believes the brand name is synonymous with quality. “They are wonderful sunglasses, and exactly like a pair I had in the early ‘70s.”
