Sunglasses Style

Designer sunglasses are more than just UV protection for your eyes. They are a fashion statement.

I see more and more people wearing sunglasses at night and inside, where there is no sun light. Now more than ever, sunglasses or SHADES are the style. Celebrities where sunglasses all the time! I can’t remember the last time I saw Britney Spears photographed without a pair of designer sunglasses on her face!

In the 80’s Cory Hart had a famous song title “I wear my sunglasses at night”. At that time everyone wore sunglasses, especially at night 🙂 20 years later the fashion trend is repeating itself. But now it is easier to obtain high end sunglasses, like Gucci and Christian Dior, thanks to the internet.

High end designer sunglasses can be very pricey! Many websites including eBay sell fakes, or “designer inspired”. Unfortunately, not all of them tell you that their glasses are not authentic. If you do a bit of investigating, it’s not too hard to tell what the fakes are! Remember an authentic pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses will not cost $6.99, and they always use the & in between D&G – a knock off brand will call themselves authentic D G sunglasses for example. Also, top brands such as Dior, Porsche design and Tom Ford will come with a nice presentation box and authenticity papers when they are new. When buying on eBay or other auction sites, always look closely at the photos, or ask for more photos.

Some popular styles of sunglasses for this summer are Over sized – seen on Paris Hilton a lot! Juicy Couture, and Prada make stylish over-sized framed sunglasses, as well as Tom Ford, DIOR, and Gucci. Aviator sunglasses never go out of fashion, so they are a good investment! Even knockoff or cheap aviator sunglasses look good on both men and women. Wayfarer shades are back! This wayfarer retro look was brought back mostly by rayban – whose sunglasses are high quality, yet gentle on the budget! Shield sunglasses are hot for the sporty type, and wrap sunglasses are always in style for men.


Should You Buy Discount Sunglasses

There are many people who are not willing to buy these sunglasses because they have several notions about the quality and usefulness of these sunglasses. These are all myths – in fact discount sunglasses are one of the top selling sunglasses today. Here are some reasons why you should always purchase these sunglasses.

  • You must buy these sunglasses at least once in your life just to feel the satisfaction which is derived on the purchase of these sunglasses. The main satisfaction is being able to use such a functional and utility product at such less prices. Suppose you know that the price of a particular Ray Ban sunglass is $20. You have often admired that pair of sunglass and thought of buying it in future and then suddenly when you walk around the store one day and you find that the sunglass is being offered at a discounted price of $15. Wouldn’t you just go for it? This is more of a psychology. We tend to love and enjoy those goods more which we buy at cheaper prices and if such a good is your favourite sunglass – will you need anything else?
  • Discount sunglasses are a true value of their money. Can you imagine buying your favourite aviator sunglasses or Versace sunglasses at a price which is ten percent less than their actual price? Wouldn’t you feel happy to use such a product and enjoy its benefit more? When we purchase something by spending a huge amount of money, if often pricks us that we had to spend so much to use that product. Though the satisfaction derived in using such product is immense, yet human mind is not that much at ease. Imagine that you are buying that same product but at discounted amount – your value for such a product will be much greater because you will know that you have got a good quality product by paying a lot less.
  • Discounted sunglasses have nothing to complain about. You should buy these sunglasses because they are nothing but a package full of benefits for you. You are being offered at a discounted rate maybe due to a promotional offer or because as per the policy of the company, or simply because the manufacturing company wishes to release all its old stocks of sunglasses. You do not have to worry about the quality or life of the sunglasses in such a case. Buying discounted sunglasses does not mean that there is some problem with the sunglass and you should be aware. You should be aware of what you are purchasing but you don’t have to be extra cautious because you are purchasing a discounted pair of sunglasses.
  • If you want to make the most use of discount sunglasses which are offered you should choose the designer discounted sunglasses. You might find these designer sunglasses a little tough to purchase otherwise because they are slightly expensive, so when you are getting them at a discounted rate you can surely purchase them.

Sunglasses, Accessories

Sunglasses are not just for the summer, anymore. They’ve become a year-round fashion must! These days, the bigger, the better! So ladies, go big! And when you think you’ve gone too big, go even bigger, and you’re sure to find a winning look for you!

Purse have become passĂ©. It’s all about bags! And like the sunglasses, the bigger, the better! If you can’t put everything but the kitchen sink in what’s draped over your shoulder, honey, you’re doing it all wrong! I have two words for you: ho-bo. Imagine that you’re the homeless lady carrying all of her earthly possessions around, and the only place there is to put it is in your bag…and you’re right on target!

Accessorize to glamorize, ladies! This is where your personal style will be very important. Earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets, (and for the very daring nose rings) have dressed girls up from infancy. For some of you ladies, a simple pair of dangly earrings and one necklace dresses you up to the nines. And then for others, several twenty-inch necklaces (coupled with a choker) has you looking and feeling like you’re on the Red Carpet. The most important thing is to know what works for you and to work it!

With shoes, this will vary from person-to person. But remember, comfort is key. Some feel like six-inch stilettos are comfy beach walkers. So do what makes you feel sexy. If sneakers do it for you, then just do it! Just make sure that they are an expression of who you are, and you can’t lose!

Remember, I told you none of these would cost you a fortune, and I am a woman of my word. You can find any of these items for less than twenty dollars at a merchant near you! They’re sold in stores you probably already frequent.

The idea is to make these items speak to those who pass you as you go through your day. Make them wonder if they’ve stepped into an area of Los Angeles where the stars play. If fierceness is what you’re after, these few components will help put you on the path of the wild side. So, get out there and dress up from your head down to your toes!
