What started off as a functional piece of eyewear to protect the eyes from the harsh glare of the sun and UV rays it emits has become a very prominent accessory in fashion. Everchanging trends and new technology has changed the face of sunglasses and to celebrate this iconic style is National Sunglasses Day. Here are some trends in men’s and women’s sunglasses that will show off your love for sunglasses on this day…
Shades for women
Starting off with the broad-lensed square pair of sunglasses from Kate Spade New York detailed with a brown print across the frame and gold hinges, these shades are elegance redefined. For a similar but more subtle design, Molsion’s round sunglasses in black with contrasting gold temples is the perfect accessory for your look. Femina Flaunt’s oval sunglasses takes a page out of the transparent sunglasses trend book with its wide transparent frame in pink and slender temples. The purple pair with round lenses from O2GEN also has a transparent frame.
If you’re looking for an all-metal pair, try the geometric-frame pair from Bolon. The sleek design has grey tinted lenses placed in a thin gold frame – minimalistic and super stylish. Another metallic design you are sure to love is Femina Flaunt’s oval sunglasses with a stylized bridge and tortoiseshell-patterned temples. For a more retro look, you can always opt for the bright red pair of cat-eye sunglasses from Scott. All these designs are perfect to celebrate National Sunglasses Day.
Shades for men
Pick from classic styles like Wayfarers and Aviators or more futuristic and sporty styles for men this National Sunglasses Day. Ray-Ban is a timeless brand for sunglasses and the tortoiseshell Wayfarers with square lenses and pronounced temples is a style that never fails, just like Aviators from the same brand. The green lenses encased in a gold frame with the striking double bridge is one of the most popular sunglasses styles and can be recognised anywhere. Another Aviator-style pair of sunglasses with brown lenses and a metallic frame is from O2GEN – perfect for urban styling.
Two more metallic designs that are great for men are Opium’s square sunglasses with a gunmetal coloured frame and brown lenses and Kosch Elemente’s Clubmaster sunglasses in brown and black. For something sportier to add to your athleisure looks, Opium’s sporty polarized sunglasses in red and black will pair with anything while Scott’s square sunglasses in the same colour theme will set any look apart.
