Sunglasses are an essential item when it comes to keeping your eyes healthy. They protect your eyes from grit, dust, and the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. But sunglasses are more than just protection for your eyes, they’re a fashion accessory, a reflection of your personality. They highlight your facial features and enhance your sense of style. This summer, why not check out an enduring trend and go for sunglasses with mirror lenses.
Mirrored lenses go with everything
We’re not just saying this. Mirrored lenses really do go with everything! Plus, eye-catching reflective lenses make a strong statement. Whether you go for classic aviators, wayfarers, or oversized cat eye frames, mirror lenses can make you appear sporty, chic, or stylish.
Styling your mirror lenses this summer
Mirror lenses are bright, youthful, and truly ideal for the summer. Don’t be scared to mix up patterns and textures when picking frames and lenses to add an extra dimension to your look.
A great way to rock reflective lenses is by matching them with some of the colorful pieces in your wardrobe. Pick out parts of your favorite color elements in your clothes and find lenses in the same shade. Sunglasses are also great for injecting a bold pop of color on their own. Select clothes with more neutral tones and choose bold, patterned frames with colored mirror lenses to set off any outfit.
Which color mirror lenses should you get?
Mirror lenses are available in all the colors of the rainbow and more. With so many to choose from, how do you know whether to go for silver, gold, blue, or hot pink?
If you’re blonde, why not try silver for a cool contrast to your locks. For those with dark hair, gold mirror lenses will highlight your face. Redheads are lucky and will look fabulous in either gold or silver. If you spend lots of time on the water, blue or purple are good options.
Or simply be brave and just go for the color you like best!
Mirrored lenses are good for your eyes and your wardrobe
Mirrored lenses are colorful, fun, and great for adding some oomph to your wardrobe. But did you know that by choosing these lenses, you’ll also be helping your eyes at the same time.
The reflective film on the outside surface of mirror lenses reflects light as it hits them. By restricting the amount of light getting through to your eyes, glare and eye strain are reduced. They also give a brighter field of vision, this is vital for cyclists and drivers who spend time staring into the sun.
Remember, sunglasses are not just for summer. You should be wearing them all year round to really look after your eye health. And whether you choose mirrored lenses or not, make sure the shades you buy offer 100 percent UVA and UVB protection.
