Known for being a luxury brand, Ray-Ban uses a large variety of high-quality materials in its frames. On this list you’ll find frames made of acetate (a popular frame choice due to it being lightweight, hypoallergenic, and durable), nylon (another popular choice due to its durability and comfort), and steel (cut thin to be lightweight and strong).
Similarly to the variety of frame material, Ray-Ban uses different lens materials to suit each frame. Some lenses are crystal glass, offering the greatest clarity and lens quality perfect for if you seek that everyday elegance. Other lenses are made of high-grade polycarbonate, which is lighter and more comfortable than glass. Since polycarbonate is impact-resistant, these are best if you’re playing sports or lead a more active lifestyle.
Gradient, mirror, and polarized lenses are also popular choices for those looking for a further touch of style. Gradient lenses have a gradual, lighter tint at the bottom, making them better for a wide variety of lighting conditions. Meanwhile, mirror lenses reflect light away from your eyes, which is especially handy if you spend a lot of time outside and want to reduce eye strain. Last but not least, polarized lenses reduce glare from reflective surfaces, so they are great for driving and water-related activities. All of Ray-Ban’s lenses offer 100% UV protection as well.

Ray-Ban RB2168 Meteor
Kicking off this list is the Ray-Ban Meteor, a retro pair of sunglasses sure to make you stand out like a shooting star—they look good on anyone, but they’re an especially great fit if you have a heart-shaped face. Featuring a unique striped gradient frame made out of lightweight and durable acetate, these shades are an alternate Wayfarer style and a good alternative to the Clubmaster if you prefer a fully acetate frame over an acetate/metal one. Make a modern statement while calling back to the 50s with these snazzy shades.
Ray-Ban RB4101 Jackie Ohh
A bestseller for Ray-Ban, the Jackie Ohh features a modern take on the classic Cats style. The softly curved upper frame flatters all face shapes, while its nylon build makes these shades both durable and comfortable. This bold but feminine look meshes well with your wardrobe regardless of your style.
Ray-Ban RB3016 Clubmaster
You can’t go wrong with the Ray-Ban Clubmaster. With acetate on top and metal on the bottom, this timeless and unisex frame sets you apart from the crowd and ensures your voice will be heard. Adjustable nose pads and a rounded-square shape ensures these will fit comfortably and look great on any face shape. As a bonus, the Clubmaster is a popular choice to be turned into regular eyeglasses.
Ray-Ban RB3025 Aviator
Possibly Ray-Ban’s most iconic sunglasses ever, the Aviator is always in style, looks great on anyone, and has been making a name for itself since the first military pilots wore it in the 1930s. Featuring a double bridge and adjustable nose pads on a thin metal frame, these shades draw attention to the teardrop-shaped lenses and are lightweight while staying on your face all day long. These vintage, unisex sunglasses are available in a large variety of colors and sizes. View our Aviator size guide here, and check out more Aviator styles here.
Ray-Ban RB4171 Erika
The Erika is another classic Ray-Ban frame, featuring an oversized round shape—perfect if you have a square or angular face—and a keyhole nose bridge for a unique twist. The nylon frame and metal temples make the Erika comfortable and durable, and these can be found in a variety of frame and lens colors to suit your style. Also available in Asian Fit if glasses sliding down your face is a common issue for you.
Ray-Ban RB2132 New Wayfarer
An updated version of the original Wayfarer, the Ray-Ban New Wayfarer kicks it up a notch by being rebuilt for smaller faces. Featuring a softer eye shape than its predecessor, the square frame is a lightweight and durable nylon available in a variety of colors. Bold but stylish, this bestseller is always comfortable.
Ray-Ban RB2185 Wayfarer II
Not to be confused with the New Wayfarer, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer II is an all-new 2019 style, featuring a round shape and a comfortable, lightweight acetate frame as opposed to the square look and nylon frame of the New Wayfarer. The thin temples and slight cat-eye (perfect for angular faces) give these sunglasses a look of sophistication.
The N in the Ray-Ban RB3647N means these sunglasses have a flat lens—this combined with their round shape provides a unique and contemporary look to any wearer. The thin, full metal frame and double bridge further serve this pair’s striking style and irresistible appeal.
Part of Ray-Ban’s @Collection pairing iconic styles with new frame and lens colors, the Ray-Ban RB3548N features a flat lens for a subtle yet interesting look. The thin metal frame with acetate temple tips quietly accents the unique hexagonal shape, while the combination of curved edges and angles means these shades are both round and square at the same time. If you want the trendiest sunglasses, you can’t go wrong with the RB3548N.
Another retro look that’s making a comeback, the Ray-Ban RB3447 finishes off our list and is sure to turn heads with its round shape and metal temples. These sunglasses feature a curved brow bar, adjustable nose pads, and plastic temple tips to ensure a comfortable fit; a style popularized by both musicians and counterculture frontrunners in the 1960s.
