Jeanne Damas sunglasses! There’s no easier way to French style than finding your own best take on the uber-influencer’s lunettes.
If you haven’t bought her book — In Paris: 20 Women on Life in the City of Light — it belongs on the same francophilic bookshelf as How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are. If you are looking for near-daily photos from what seems like an perpetually stylish vacation in the South of France, you will absolutely want to follow her on Instagram. And if you are interested in taking a look at her style — a primer on how to do that Frenchy-styley thing — you are bienvenue.
You might want to begin with a wider look at her style — cropped sweaters! wide-legged denim! straw bags! — here. You may be most interested in her shoes (these are my 19 favorites), which seem to alternate between espadrilles (I mentioned the neverending vacations???), designer heels, and one pair of go-to booties. Or! You may be most interested in her wide array of sunglasses, in which case you are 100% in the right place.
Here, I’ve collected the best of her sunglasses. Once you start looking, you start seeing patterns. Let’s begin with this pair, which I thought was Karen Walker’s One Astronaut but definitely isn’t and I wish I knew who it was but “¯\_(ツ)_/¯“. They do remind me quite a bit of them.
After this, we’ll see a recurring brown pair with with an ivory inlay design, and then what seems to be her favorite shape — a really horizontal vibe, and not a cat’s eye, as I would have guessed. If the brown ones aren’t these from Rouje, they are very, very close.
If you don’t feel like playing guess-the-designer, you can find Damas-approved lunettes chez Rouje — especially now, given the ongoing collab with Jimmy Fairley.

And then, all the squashy ones
