Designer sunglasses have become the must-have fashion accessory for celebrities from all walks of life. Both men and women tend to follow the trend of their favorite celebrity, and even if they cannot afford the top designer names will go for other well-known brands or copies of the real thing. Even those who wear glasses for medical reasons can now buy designer frames, although that is a very recent thing. Sunglasses, on the other hand, have been seen more as a fashion accessory than aid in sunlight since the nineteen-thirties.
It is not an easy job to get the kind of designer glasses that you want at a price you can afford but some lower-priced designer sunglasses are just as attractive as those from the big-name design houses. If you want to know what sunglasses are both fashionable and useful for keeping the dust from your eyes and protecting your sight from the harmful UV rays of the sun? It is well worth taking a look in fashion magazines or trawling the internet to find sunglasses that suit both your style and your pocket.
Before you spend a lot of money on your designer sunglasses it is worth doing some research. There are some fashion houses that offer discounts and money-saving coupons on some of the high name brands, so it is worth taking the time to look for some of these bargains. There are some discount stores on the internet that deal only with designer and designer style sunglasses. If you look hard enough you can get Dior, Prada, and Gucci sunglasses at discount prices and if your budget doesn’t run to the real thing then there are some really good copies available now.
There are different types of sunglasses available. Most good sunglasses will have a Polaroid lens, which is designed to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Aviator style sunglasses are popular not just because they look so stylish but because they also give extra protection as they cover the whole of the eye and wrap around the face – this stops strong sunlight from affecting your eyes.
Nowadays you can get designer sunglasses that are made especially for sports like fishing, golf, and skiing. These sunglasses have special lenses, depending on what you are doing, and cost more because of these special properties. Designer names to look for in sporting sunglasses are Ray-ban and Nike.
Designers like Armani have a new collection of designer sunglasses every year, as do Dior and Prada. Because men, as well as women, view designer sunglasses as a must-have fashion accessory these fashion houses usually have designs for both. Gucci and Dior sunglasses have their own special signature usually on the arms of the sunglasses and this can make them difficult to replicate. In recent years there has been a trend back to the large sunglasses that were made so popular in the nineteen sixties by people like Jackie Kennedy, and these are made by most of the big fashion houses and come in a range of colors. Sunglasses have been a popular accessory for more than seventy years and it seems that their popularity is set to continue.
