You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
The sun may be going down at 4 p.m. these days, but there’s no better time than now to snag a new pair of deeply discounted designer sunglasses — for yourself or for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list. Save those retinas with some Strategist-approved shades that are 50 percent off today, making them just $66. Ray-Bans of all styles are popular among our writers for their timeless look, comfortable fit, and durability. (And if you happen to have a pilot on your gift list, look no further — five pilots we spoke to recommended Ray-Ban sunglasses as a good gift for other pilots.) This pair is non-polarized and has a UV-protection coating, something anyone on your list would be able to appreciate (pilot or not). We love the blue frame of these, which makes them pop a bit more than your average sunglasses, but if your giftee would prefer something neutral, this white and gold pair is also half off.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
