As we look ahead toward the warmest months of the year, the future's looking bright. Between the growing accessibility to vaccinations and the increasing number of options for places to go and things to do, there's no doubt that you'll be out and about this spring and summer dressed in stylish ensembles. And naturally, you're going to need a pair of sunglasses to go with them.

Now, you may be asking yourself what qualifies as the best sunglasses on the market. In our humble opinion, the cream of the crop always showcase an edge of style -- no matter how you describe your aesthetic. That said, there are a few more practical details to always keep in mind, too. Such features include UV protection to block out harmful rays, whether or not they include a polarized lens (but really, two) and so much more. Luckily, there are plenty of sunglasses to choose from that check all the boxes, so you don't have to skimp on form or function.

From a tried-and-true aviator style by Ray-Ban to a cool, statement-making pair of polarized sunglasses from celebrity-approved Quay, scroll down below to shop the best sunglasses to sport with all your warm-weather outfits for 2021.

For Quay's latest celebrity collaboration, the Australian eyewear brand teamed up with Saweetie to create a collection of bold and stylish sunnies, which are sure to have all eyes on you. We love these oversized, polarized sunglasses from the capsule, which will go with everything you own.
