Listen up, ladies! We’ve just discovered a new sunglasses brand that you HAVE to check out. Yup, Finlay & Co. is so good we’re dubbing them the new Ray-Bans. Yes, really.

They’ve already been spotted on Fearne Cotton, Laura Whitmore, Daisy Lowe and Natalie Imbruglia  – so if Finlay & Co. isn’t on your radar, it should be!

Founded in 2012 by four friends in London, this British eyewear brand creates stylish sunnies that look WAY more expensive than their price tag.

What’s more, Finlay & co. sunglasses are all handcrafted – made only from sustainable hardwoods or Italian Mazzucchelli acetate (we mean, we don’t really know what that means but it sounds fancy!) – so you know you’re getting quality sunnies that will last for summers to come – no accidentally sitting on these in the car!

So while sunglasses are essential in protecting your eyes from the sun’s rays – there’s also the fact that they look seriously cool.

Trust us, popping on a pair is the easiest way to finish off an outfit. Not to mention that they can transform any everyday look into a Insta-worthy outfit.
