the best sunglasses for your big vacation

splurge-worthy

A big vacation is—let’s just say it—intimidating. All the preparation and saving can be something of a waking nightmare, but there’s an excitement that drives it all. Knowing you’re about to experience something completely special, whether it’s for the first time or the tenth, is infectious.There are new sights to be seen and people to meet! And what you pack is as vital as your boarding pass and passport. We’re not ones to advocate blending in, but sticking out like sore, touristy thumb is the bane of any aspiring jet-setter. You want to curate your wardrobe, down to the sunglasses you bring, to play the part, be it the French girl, Manhattanite, beach-goer, road tripper, or Spanish romantic.

You could search high and low for the perfect pair of jet-setter sunnies, but we'll save you the time: Tiffany & Co.’s Atlas collection is designed for travel, and travel with style.

Ahead, see just how versatile the collection is when paired with five, splurge-worthy getaway destinations.

The French Getaway

Sure, sure, Paris is lovely, but venturing beyond its abundance of lights is where the magic is really felt. There’s cuisine to be sampled, fresh air to be inhaled, and a countryside to take in. Bonjour, indeed.

The New York City Getaway

Truman Capote once said, “New York is the only real city-city,” and that could not be more true. (Uh, hello Tiffany & Co.'s flagship on Fifth!) The yellow cabs pass by landmarks and street style stars at a pace unique only to the Big Apple. Getting lost among the very busy people is a trip, and making it here—whether permanently or just for a few days—is a must for any traveler.

The Road Trip Getaway

At some point in your life as an adventurer, you’re going to feel the call of the open road. Don’t ignore it. Go make mixtapes, rent that cool car, and hit the pavement. Pro tip: Pack a film camera and lots of film. You’ll thank us later.

The Spanish Getaway

Y Viva España! There’s a reason American greats like Ernest Hemingway fell in love with Spain. There’s romance to be felt and a lust for life that doesn’t exist anywhere else. Just remember: Red and black are always right together.

The Beach Getaway

It’s nearly impossible to have a bad beach vacation. There’s something about the sea breeze that piques the good vibes and grounds you. We could blame it on the blue water, but we don’t want to blame it on anything. Just be sure to pack sunglasses. Your eye doctor (and future self) will thank you.
