Sunglasses are an important summer accessory, but who wants to pay a fortune for a pair that is going to get lost or broken. Am I right? Don’t worry, there are some great cheaper alternatives to expensive sunglasses!
This is the next post in my popular “cheaper alternatives” series. In this series, I look at popular brands and find cheaper alternatives. Today’s topic is cheaper alternatives to Ray-Ban sunglasses.
Ray-Bans have become so common that people often have trouble even thinking of any other sunglass brand! I’ll look at alternatives (or some people might say Ray-Ban dupes, Ray-Ban lookalikes, or Ray-Ban knockoffs) of the four most popular styles: Aviator, Wayfarer, Clubmaster, and Caravan.
Cheaper Alternatives to Ray-Ban Sunglasses
I looked for cheaper sunglasses that look like Ray-Bans that had:
- High review ratings from customers that check out with Fakespot. There are many sunglasses with fake reviews, so be careful!
- UVA/UVB protection
- Polarized lenses
There are plenty of great sunglasses that are MUCH cheaper than Ray-Ban’s price of $150+.
Here’s a quick list of the top picks for cheaper alternatives to Ray-Ban sunglasses:
