Sunglasses- Needed All Year Round
After a few long days outside these past few weeks, I realized that cold weather and sunglasses are not mutually exclusive. The sun has been very bright for the time it is out, and starting March 9th it will be out to enjoy even longer. That being said, snow on the ground or not, it is important to protect your eyes. And honestly, squinting is not nearly as attractive as adding an accessory.
This week I was lucky enough to have received a pair of Axiis Titanium Eyewear, courtesy of Runway magazine. My eyes feel better already and I look great. The best way to describe these glasses would be industrial meets vintage. Pictured below, they come in a durable metal case, so they definitely won’t break in the bottom of your purse. They feature oval titanium vintage style frames in a yellow-ish hue, accented by silver metal industrial styled bars. More styles are available at Axiis.us.
Let’s say you dig vintage everything, but aren’t quite there with the industrial elements. GiantVintage.com has everything you are looking for. They have vintage and retro glasses ranging from 70’s style to 90’s style, and everything else you could imagine. Aviators of all styles and big glasses in all different shapes and colors are rarely more than $20 on this site, so you don’t have to chose just one. Pictured below is a small variety of their sunglasses.
While vintage accessories are extremely popular, not everyone loves it. So if you aren’t a vintage lover, there are plenty of fashionable sunglasses for you, too. 6pm.com offers a variety of designer sunglasses at wholesale prices. This site offers an array of glasses of all shapes and sizes from designers like Alexander McQueen, Ray Ban, Michael Kors, and Stella McCartney. Pictured below is a peak of what they offer.
Whatever your personal preference of eyewear may be, do not skip out on a good pair of sunglasses. Too much sun can affect your vision, and squinting all of the time accelerates the forming of crow’s feet near the eyes. So, spend some money now on a nice pair of sunglasses and save later on all those eye creams.
