Before we jump into our lineup of the most popular women's Oakley sunglasses, let's quickly review Oakley proprietary technology and what that means for your frames.
Dedicated to providing the best-performing eyewear for virtually any sport or active lifestyle, Oakley engineers have created proprietary frame materials that surpass the competition. For sunglasses, that means O Matter™ frame construction and Unobtainium™ rubber grip. You'll get lightweight and durable wear with a strategically placed grip that gets tackier when wet and stays perfectly in place no matter how much you break a sweat.
As for lenses, Oakley PRIZM™ is the star of the show. This contrast-enhancing lens technology calibrates the visible light spectrum to finetune color, contrast, and clarity for your specific environment. Made from Plutonite™, Oakley's proprietary lens material, all PRIZM™ lenses are impact-resistant and deliver superior optics. And they're Rx-able!
Now that we're familiar with Oakley's proprietary technology, let's check out the frames!
Created for the woman on the go who loves timeless style, the Oakley Feedback is as impressive in performance as it is in design. Featuring an iconic teardrop lens, this mixed-composition frame is constructed of Oakley's proprietary C-5 metal alloy and acetate. In addition to being ultra-lightweight to wear, the no-snag nose pads ensure maximum comfort. You'll never again experience the uncomfortable hair pulling of a metal frame upon removal. Now that's a feature we girls can get behind!

Achieving impeccable style and high-quality optics doesn't mean breaking the bank. The Oakley Manorburn is one of Oakley's newer price-friendly frames that features the same great quality and technologies we love to see from the brand.

The Ace Fit temples can easily be heated to customize the fit and ensure the most comfortable frame experience yet.

Most Popular Oakley Women's Sunglasses of 2020
Get a pair of sunglasses that can meet any of your daily demands with ease. The Top Knot is a fashion forward frame made for women on the go. Whats especially nice for women is that the no-slip and no-snag nosepads won't get caught in your hair if you happen to rest them on the top of your head. Flexible spring hinges make the Top Knot an excellent fit for all the larger heads out there.
The Rev Up will keep you cool even when your day heats up with the Advancer System. This works by raising the sunglasses forward on your nosebridge to increase airflow between your face and the sunglasses. Thicker temple arms keep sunlight at bay and give you the protection you need in an everyday pair of sunglasses.
The Low Key was an instant favorite from the Oakley Women's Spring Collection. An on-trend lens shape and temple accents give you the confidence for any task that comes your way. Like the Top Knot and Rev Up, this frame also features Unobtainium™ nosepads for all the grip you need.
Originally introduced in 1984, the Frogskins continue to be an Oakley staple in the lifestyle lineup. O Matter™ frame construction and Plutonite lenses will hold up to any daily abuse you put these sunglasses through. There are many different renditions of this frame you can check out in our review of the Frogskins Collection. This sunglass has a medium fit but it is also available in a smaller fit as the Frogskins XS.
As the name indicates, you can really split your time between sport and lifestyle activities with the Split Time. The saddle Unobtainium™ bridge provides more contact points with your nose and keeps the sunglasses from sliding down your face. Embrace the classic aviator look in a sunglass that is capable of much more than just casual wear.
The Moonlighter takes subtle design cues from the Frogskins with a slightly more feminine touch. The brow line of the Moonlighter dips a little lower in the middle, creating a more cat-eyed look than the Frogskins. The other main difference is that you get Unobtanium nosepads for grip and a classic saddle nosebridge vs a keyhole. The fit of the Moonlighter is also slightly smaller than the Frogskins.
The Feedback has been a part of the Oakley Women's collection for a few years running. This wire frame features adjustable nosepads and a double bridge for the classic aviator style. The tip-to-tip retention at the end of the temples is snug so we recommend this sunglass for smaller heads.
Half Jacket 2.0 XL
The Half Jacket 2.0 XL is what our opticians typically recommend to most women because of its size. It is a size smaller than the Flak 2.0 XL but larger than the Flak XS which puts it at a solid medium. Don't worry, the 'XL' refers only to the lens shape. In this case it means 'extended lens' because the bottom of the lenses are curved to provide you with more coverage but still avoid contact with your cheeks. It is also available in a standard fit version if you have high cheekbones.
The EVZero Ascend adds a cat-eyed look to this sport-driven model. You get everything you love about the EVZero including a full rimless frame and Unobtainium™ grip on the nosepads and temples. With the absence of a frame, this sunglass weighs essentially nothing, which makes it very comfortable when worn for extended periods of time.
Want a more retro-inspired look than the Ascend? The EVZero Blades have you covered. Literally. This sunglass is perfect for nearly any sport because it gives you the protection you need and will stay in place when you are moving around and breaking a sweat. It is available with a wide variety of PRIZM™ lens options to boost contrast and make details easier to see.
Radar EV Path
Following the shield theme, the Radar EV Path has more frame structure than the EVZeros. Built-in vents in the top of the shield keep you cool so you don't have to worry about fogging when you are at the peak of your workout. The Radar EV Path pictured above features the all-new PRIZM™ Trail Torch lens. See how this lens compares to the traditional PRIZM Trail for your next adventure.
