The summer solstice has finally come, signaling the return of afternoons at the pool, nights at the ballpark, weekend road trips, and lots of delicious ice cream in between. Best of all it’s the prime time to rock your favorite shades! While wearing your sunglasses year-round to protect your eyes is encouraged, it’s especially crucial at this time of year. Harmful UV rays are out in full force, even on cloudy days. Thankfully, you can protect your vision and look super fly at the same time. If you’re in the market for a new pair of sunglasses this season, consider the following:
BE BOLD – Its summer. Wear the crop top. We all know it’s too hot not to. Pair your favorite 90-degree day outfit with a bold style! Life is too short. Designers are going all out to craft unique styles. If there’s a funky frame or fashion that you’ve had your eyes on, go for it! Whether it’s a larger-than-life frame, fun shape, jeweled embellishment, or a crazy color – now’s the time to experiment. Being fearless always gets points in the fashion department. Proceed with confidence!
HEART EYES – Heart-shaped frames can show off your flirty side. Whether you choose an obvious pink or red-hued mirror pair or a more subtle approach, a heart-shaped shade may be the perfect style to play with this hot summer.
AVIATORS – Let’s be honest, you can’t go wrong with this classic. Universally flattering on every face shape, find the perfect size for your features and you’re good to go. Gold is especially flattering on dark or tan skin. You have a rainbow to choose from for the lenses, though we’re partial to blue hues (like the Blue Hawaiian line from Maui Jim!), reminiscent of blue skies and blue oceans!
MIRRORED LENSES – It’s been suggested that some of the first people to wear sunglasses were actually judges in China – hiding their emotions from those on trial. It’s no wonder that mirrored lenses can give off a certain air of coolness. The ultimate poker face, mirrored lenses in any color are an excellent accessory.
There are more options now than ever before. Find your most flattering style and rock it this summer!
