I love accessories, but my biggest vice has always been sunglasses. I’m no stranger to splurging on designer pairs, but my bills and rent keep my sunglasses addiction on the cheaper end of the spectrum for now. Last year, I bought a pair of red cat-eye sunglasses on Amazon for … not a lot of money. The first time I wore them, my friends thought they were Le Specs, which retail for about five times what I paid. Since then, I’ve been trawling Amazon for cheap eyewear, and I’ve amassed such a large collection that it’s like having a pair for every mood. They may not hold up as well as a $250 pair, but for $10, you won’t feel a pit of shame if they accidentally get crushed.
Below, I’ve rounded up some of the best pairs I could find under $30. Bonus: You can get all of them in two days.

Who knew translucent blue could be so damn chic? When Celine released a similar pair years ago, it was practically impossible to escape them, and the shape has become a modern classic.
Some people think certain face shapes require certain sunglasses shapes. Some people think this is a myth. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this oversize pair, which is big enough to sit comfortably on your face but not so aggressive that it’ll swallow it whole.
Looking expensive and feeling expensive are two different things. At $30, these are priced slightly higher than everything else on the list, but their weight and solid construction make them well worth it.
