The sunglasses you wear should match your lifestyle. Simple as that. Find yourself below.
Are you tired of constantly charging your Fitbit? Do you have more pairs of running tights than jeans? Do you have more Strava followers than Twitter followers? If you’re sporty and you know it, embrace it. Go for polarized lenses and a sleek, sporty look. Wrap-around sunglasses will stay put when you’re sweating, but they’ll look great with your favorite fleece and a pair of jeans, too.
Smith and Suncloud make a variety of sporty sunglasses that provide plenty of coverage, are lightweight, and look great, too.
Do you watch Mad Men for style and fashion ideas? Do you have trouble resisting pencil skirts? Have you ever ridden in a mint green 1957 Cadillac? If you love retro styles and fashion from the days of yesteryear, a pair of modern shades will look out of place in your local Woolsworth five-and-dime store. Don’t go there.
Instead of chasing new trends and designs, stick with your gut. Classic cateye sunglasses are perfect for your particular fashion personality. If you’re feeling adventurous, choose a colorful twist on these classic frame styles.
Like a Boss
Are you the alpha wolf? Do you wear suits to three-martini-lunch in the financial district? Do you have a .io startup and a Series A in the pipeline? If you’re all business and you don’t take no for an answer, you need a pair of sunglasses that fit your drive and ambition. Dark wayfarer frames or teardrop aviators are the perfect shades for you.
Clubmasters can also fit the bill. They have a classic look and exude a certain nerd-chic appeal that feels at home in Silicon Valley.
What’s your favorite Institute of Technology? If you clicked your Louboutins and said ‘Fashion!’ this is probably for you. You’re always looking for the latest trends on the runways your sunglasses style is going to change with the seasons, but that’s okay because so will the rest of your wardrobe.
