Throwing Shade: Quay Sunglasses

quay sunglasses celebs

What do Shay Mitchell, Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Emma Roberts, JLo, Lauren Conrad and Vanessa Hudgens have in common? Well, aside from being fabulous A-listers, they all wear the same brand of sunglasses: Quay Australia. So do Kylie Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce…ok, you get it. They’re popular.

When I first noticed the shades popping up all over my Instagram feed a while ago, I didn’t even bother Googling them. I assumed that if they were a celeb favorite they would be out of my price range.

Turns out they’re budget friendly! Most of the Quay styles are about $50 per pair. They come in such a wide range of styles that there is surely a pair for everyone. Celeb-approved, affordable and versatile? I’m sold.

There are tons of different pairs available through Quay’s own website, Nordstrom, Lord and Taylor, ASOS, Nasty Gal and more. Sound overwhelming? Don’t worry – I did the work for you. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite pairs of Quay sunglasses below. Click the links to shop ’em!
