Sunglasses: Keep the mystery alive!
Never leave the crib without your stunna shades, because you never know who you’re going to run into! Sunglasses are quite possibly the most important clothing accessory you can possess. Simply put, they can make or break your whole image, if not your day. Not only do they help protect your eyes, like blocking out harmful UV rays, but more importantly, they say a lot about you as a person too.
An individual’s idea of style may differ from person to person, and whether you dig metal frames or opt for plastic ones, you’re sure to find one that complements your face. Take for example the girl coping with the aftereffects of a regretful night of debauchery and sin: oversize frames are your new BFFs. And remember those aviator sunglasses your dad rocked back in the day? You can floss ‘em now and get mad props for your sense of vintage taste. Oval, round, narrow, heart-shaped or oblong, no matter your facial structure, there’s a pair of shades just for you.
Timeless classics never go out of style, and that’s why iconic brands like Lacoste®, Ray Ban®, Tommy Bahama®, and Maui Jim® continue to sustain a cult following. These designers have been instrumental in bridging a generational gap where young and old alike can appreciate a decent pair of fashionable sunglasses without dipping into their 401(k). Then there are the household names that you grew up with like Arnette®, Fox®, Nike®, and Dragon Alliance™ that continue to hold it down with raw, in-your-face products while the Asian Fit line from Oakley® remains a popular alternative to those who have small to medium faces.
For the diva in the family, where brand name takes precedence over function, Juicy Couture®, Kenneth Cole®, and Kate Spade® keep your little drama queen looking hot like fiyah! Influential designers like Marc Jacobs® and Roberto Cavalli® are a classic example of what you see is more than what you expected—literally! For the man in your life with far too much knowledge on fashion than what’s acceptable, who prefer rock Diesel® jeans to Levi®, D&G® sneakers to old-school Chucks, athletic fitted tees to regular, a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs® shades may be a the perfect ego booster he needs. Or if he wants to keep it real OG, some RAEN Optics® or Neff™ stunna™ shades solidify his street cred.
With an immense selection of frame styles, it’ll come as no surprise that you’ve just burned half the day looking for the “one.” From the rugged outdoorsman to the laid-back beach bum to budding starlets easily swayed by tabloid magazines, there’s a plethora of sunglasses to choose from. And remember this: beauty is in the eye of the beholder; and getting your hands on some stylish sunglasses is the first step to a new you.
