The Love Island Trend For Wrap-Around Sunglasses Has Already Taken Off On TikTok

Even more stylish than aviators.

Love Island wrap-around sunglasses

by Natalie Hammond |

As Love Island has coincided with the latest instalment of Top Gun, it kind of makes sense that the biggest sunglasses trend so far has been the aviator. But there's another style in the villa that might just have the edge for the coolest shade of summer 2022: meet wrap-around sunglasses, the sporty silhouette that's already found a foothold with fans on TikTok.

Super glam - and yet, somehow, also suitable for cycling thanks to their extended lenses that wrap around your face - these sunglasses found fame in the early '00s on Paris Hilton. Tasha wore a black pair last night from Quay - the villa's official sunglasses outfitter - and they're available to buy now for just £49. Balenciaga's Xpander Sunglasses, meanwhile, are leader of the pack when it comes to cult wrap-arounds, but we also have time for the styles from sporty brands like Oakley, SunGod and Alo Yoga. Whether you're planning a hill climb - or just some much-needed downtime on a sun lounger - wrap-around sunglasses are the perfect plus one.
