Vintage Sunglasses Styles for the Summer

Did you hear? Vintage is in. With their luxurious details and over-the-top silhouettes, vintage-style sunglasses have found their way back into the culture as trendsetters draw inspiration from the past. To help you tune into the best of nostalgia, here is QUAY’s official vintage sunglasses edit for spring.

Get Groovy with 70’s-Style Oversized Squares: BY THE WAY

Toss on oversized squares to channel the groovy 70’s. This funky frame style easily complemented the feathered hair and flared jeans that you’d spot at the disco. Bonus: It’s also incredibly versatile in our modern-day setting. 

For a retro sunglasses look, we love a thick frame rim, BY THE WAY. This chic oversized square frame is the perfect way to add attitude to your vibe, and it even features a metal hardware detail for an elevated touch. Embolden your look with go-go boots and a statement belt for authentic 70’s flair.


Pick Out 80’s Preppy Chic Gold Frame Glasses: BIG TIME

Luxury was the prevailing vibe of the 80’s. Alongside neon workout gear, preppy style, a predecessor of the old money trend, took off during this decade. In the realm of eyewear, luxurious details, like gold frames, dominated this era. 

Upgrade your look BIG TIME with geometric metal frames. An elegant gold frame is our go-to pick for extra flair at the clubhouse. Embrace 80’s luxury by pairing these vintage-style sunglasses with preppy polos and perfectly pleated skirts. 

Channel Retro Sporty Vibes with Aviators: SOUNDCHECK

We’d be remiss to bring up the 80’s without mentioning the retro sporty aviator. When it comes to signature styles of the decade, this frame earns a spot next to the oversized blazer and brightly colored suit. Still, we love that it’s timeless in terms of versatility. Top Gun might have come out in 1986, but the classic aviator is still very much in style today. 

From SOUNDCHECK to stage, we love a vintage aviator for a statement look. Along with a classic silhouette, this pick features a subtle modern flair with its geometric shape. Rock it with your more subtle outfits — think low-key blue jeans with an overshirt — or go all out with an edgy jacket. 

90’s Glam with Sized-Down Sunnies: FELT CUTE

In the 90’s, the red carpet look was all about narrow sunglasses. Perfect for an effortless vibe, these small vintage sunglasses were the just-right statement to pair with relaxed denim jackets and minidresses. 

If you FELT CUTE, show it with some 90’s glam shades. This flirty round frame was a mainstay at NYFW, and it’s sure to be an everyday staple in your eyewear wardrobe. Its scaled-down size looks great with a mini skirt and leather jacket, but it can make a statement with virtually any style.

Throw It Back to Y2K with Shields: BALANCE

At the turn of the millennium, the shield ruled the eyewear scene. Shields were constant companions to low-rise jeans, cropped tees, and velour tracksuits — bonus points if you got these Y2K sunglasses with candy-colored lenses.

Give your look some BALANCE with a luxe wrap shield. Hailing from QUAY’s collaboration with Danielle Guizio, this eye-catching frame comes with sleek metal arms and a one-piece lens (which you can even get in a rose color). Wear it with a fitted black tee or a velvet pink hoodie for a dose of early aughts chic. 

Great style isn’t just limited to what’s new — that’s why we loved a tried-and-true vintage silhouette. Travel back in time with more throwback sunglasses from QUAY’s Bestsellers Collection.
