To help make the decision a little easier, we’ve selected seven of the coolest Maui Jim sunglasses for women based on design, price, customer feedback and editorial opinion. 

Maui Jim Sugar Beach

Named after the pristine white sands of Sugar Beach, these polarized rimless sunglasses offer brilliant clarity of vision and colour. The simple rimless frames are perfect for those who prefer unobtrusive frames and are particularly flattering on round and heart-shaped faces. This range is available in black with a black and silver lens or brown with a copper lens. The understated gold emblem on the lens is a stylish touch too. The frames are lightweight and feature a fixed saddle-style design with non-slip rubber nose pads, so there’s no danger of unsightly lumps and bumps either. From $169.99.

Like most Maui Jim glasses, the Akau is enhanced with PolarizedPlus2 technology too. The total weight of the shades is 10 grams, so you’ll hardly notice they’re there. Frames are available in black, transparent, brown and grey, while lenses are available in a vibrant green or blue, or a more subdued brown or grey. From $189.99.

Maui Jim Red Sands 

This stylish pair of shades is named after Red Sand Beach on Kaihalulu Bay, one of the only red sand beaches of its kind in the world. According to Maui Jim, these polarized glasses are one of a kind too. The rectangular shape will give an edge to any outfit and suits most face shapes, particularly round, oval and heart-shaped faces. The dark lenses transition well between the outdoors and indoors, which means no stumbling around if you need to pick up a bottle of water from the store either. For added comfort, there’s an adjustable nose pad on the saddle style bridge too.
