6 Chic Alternatives to the Dior “So Real” Sunglasses

* These Dior sunnies a favorite of everyone from Rihanna to Zoe Kravitz
* These fashionable alternatives feel just as chic as the originals without the hefty price tag
* Look for mirrored lenses and sleek curves

The hybrid sunglasses of the moment are the Christian Dior “Dior So Real” sunnies — and for good reason. They have been seen perched on the noses of most of the fashion elite, from models to editors to pop-stars. From Rihanna who was featured in the campaign and has been seen out and about in them, to Olivia Palermo to Zoe Kravitz, everyone has been seen sporting these chic and expensive shades.

These sunglasses have a geometric silhouette that’s part wayfarer, part Aviator and comes in an array of styles and colors that will add an instant cool factor to any outfit. If the expensive price tag makes you do a double-take, scroll down to see some equally chic, wallet-friendly options.
