It’s always the right time of year to sport stylish specs

Whether it’s the hottest day of the summer and you’re lying on a beach, or mid-January and you’re trekking on a snowshoe expedition – UV rays are always present and potentially causing damage to your eyes.

Even though the days aect your eyes and look stylish all year rounre shorter, the sun sits lower in the sky which may actually be increasing your exposure to UV rays.

Protd with these tips for purchasing winter sunglasses:

  • Unisex eyewear – Who says we all can’t wear the same shades? As long as they’re properly fitted, this year will focus on unisex sunglasses with retro features such as keyhole bridges and interior kick-ups that allow you to clip your shades to your shirt.
  • Simple but classic – Timeless styles such as aviators are always on trend. You can look for unique twists on classic styles such as printed temples or warm lens colours.
  • Multi-use – Practical sunglasses that can be worn on a shopping trip or the slopes are coming in to style. A lasting design combined with unified technologies such as polarized or mirrored lenses are making their statement.

Remember, even on a cloudy day the sun’s UV rays still come through so be sure to protect your eyes from morning until night, 365 days a year.
