Summer is just around the corner and if you’re anything like us — you’re prepping your warm weather wardrobe full of cutoff shorts, comfy tank tops and colorful flip flops. Still, no summertime closet is complete without a pair of stylish sunglasses. And who better to offer all the sunny side inspo than the Duchess of Cambridge. For years, this busy royal has been rocking Ray Bans and designer frames. Luckily, Kate’s most beloved sunglasses are available at a few popular retailers.
Ray Ban Folding Wayfarer Sunglasses (RB4105) — Tortoise Frame/Brown Lens
The duchess has perfected the art of finding trendy and timeless glasses that can be worn for casual off-duty family outings at polo or the park as well as for sporty royal engagements like hikes, safaris and of course Wimbledon. Kate has worn her classic and compact Wayfarer sunglasses since the spring of 2014 when she stepped out for a boating event in New Zealand wearing the smart brown shades. The popular princess was last spotted in the sleek sunnies for the London Marathon in 2017. The practical and portable folding design of the chic tortoise frames gives them endless appeal as they work exceptionally well for travel, outdoor events and special occasions like weddings.
