We’ve picked out a selection of stylish designer shades that’ll look fabulous whether you’re wearing them at your private villa, or at the local beach club
When it comes to perfecting a holiday look that embodies effortless elegance balanced with tropical chic, the right pair of sunglasses is essential.
Whether you’re lounging by the pool at your luxury private villa or heading down to the local beach club for an endless brunch, the right pair of shades will inject your outfit with sophistication and panache.

Few designer sunglasses scream effortless style in the same way that Prada does. That’s why we’ve picked out these sleek men’s shades.

They’re also complete with brand detailing on the arms and tips, so no one can miss where your designer sunglasses are from.
These stunning sunglasses by French label Saint Laurent are ideal for ladies who aren’t afraid of standing out. Famous for their luxurious, feminine designs, Saint Laurent have hit the mark perfectly with this square tortoiseshell design. The tortoiseshell frames add a flourish of vintage style to these shades, while the bold shape of the frames is perfect for making a stronger style statement. These shades will work just as well for lunch at the local beach club as they would for sipping cocktails by your private villa’s pool.
Funk it up
For gentlemen keen to jazz up their holiday wardrobe with a little bit of colour and funk, these Oakley sunglasses are the perfect pick. Featuring a lightweight, comfortable frame, these glasses come with a built-in clip element for when you want to take them off and attach them to your shirt. While the classic keyhole-shaped bridge offers a traditionally-styled element, the grey frame and striking mirror blue lenses bring a striking, modern touch. The putonite lenses also offer great protection for your eyes, filtering 100 percent of harmful UVA, UVB UVC and blue light out up to distances of 400m.
Known for its playful designs, these gorgeous sunnies from Mui Miu offer everything you’d expect from the label.

Gradient sepia lenses complement the gorgeous polished gold toned base. The embossed logo adds an extra touch of luxury.
Our list of stylish shades for your holiday in Thailand would be incomplete without including a classic pair of Ray Ban aviators. That’s why we’ve picked out this mirrored design in blue and silver. The frameless version of the classic aviator design adds a modern twist to traditional style, but the bold design that never goes out of style, and will translate from an al fresco barbecue lunch at your private villa to sunset cocktails at a beach side bar later on.
Bvlgari is one of the world’s leading designers when it comes to luxurious accessories, which means a pair of sunglasses from the label’s latest collection is considered a must-have for your holiday in Thailand.
