Holly Willoughby and Kate Middleton’s favourite sunglasses are now on sale on Amazon

A good pair of sunglasses is often the only spring/summer accessory you need to upgrade your entire look. They seem to have a transformative power; the right pair can make you feel instantly confident. On a practical level, they’re just as important as wearing sunscreen when it comes to protecting yourself from harmful UV rays. 

In short, a pair of sunnies are a warm weather must-have. But, with thousands of options out there, the decision on which pair to buy is often a lot less straightforward.

So, once again, we look toward our favourite celebs for inspiration regarding the best sunglasses to buy, and who better to emulate than the ever-stylish Duchess of Cambridge and daytime TV fashion icon, Holly Willoughby?

Luckily, the dynamic duo seem to have a favourite pair of sunglasses in common (that makes things easy, hey?), with both women regularly seen out and about wearing statement tinted Ray-Bans.

Both Holly and Kate are fans of the classic Wayfarer style – a sleek and elegant frame that suits most face types, is infinitely versatile and easily paired with a summer wedding outfit or a casual t-shirt and jeans combo.

Holly donned her all-black pair to attend a tennis match at Wimbledon. She teamed her favourite frames with a stunning green spotted dress by Reformation, espadrilles from Mango, and a cream croc handbag from Mulberry, while the Duchess has been wearing her own pair for years to Wimbledon too. Kate was most recently spotted wearing them on the royal tour of the Caribbean with Prince William.

But the high profile women aren’t the only celebrity fans of the sunnies: since launching in 1952, Wayfarers have gained a cult following among celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon, Kaia Gerber and Karlie Kloss. 

And the good news? You can now grab yourself your very own pair for £30 off the usual price in the Amazon sale. 

We might not be heading to the royal box at Wimbledon anytime soon, but we can certainly look our best on the stroll to the supermarket.
