Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Discounting today's dreariness, sunglasses are an LA necessity—almost as important as proper hydration and a car with a navigation system. And because you're wearing them almost every day, you should really love the pairs you own. There's no shortage of places to pick up a cool new style in this town; below, we've rounded up our favorites. If we've left your go-to off the list, let us know about it in the comments.

PLUS: See where to shop for sunglasses in Chicago, New York and online.
