Finding the perfect pair of women’s sunglasses can be an absolute mission. With the sheer number of styles and colours available, it can be a daunting challenge for even the savviest of buyers. One of the best ways to get started is to narrow down what you like and how it fits your current trend. At Vision Direct we have made the process simpler by breaking the choices down into a variety of styles, colours (frames and lenses), and brands. We have some of the best brands available including, Gucci sunglasses, Versace sunglasses and Dragon sunglasses, you can sort through our selected styles by brand and choose one of your favourites.
Women’s sunglasses have been in the fashion spectrum ever since they were first created and mass-produced (1929, for the trivia hounds). Initially ‘sunglasses’ were used to hide a person's eyes, we won’t go into details, but let’s just say that worker safety never used to be a thing. Anyway, soon they found their way into the hands, and on faces, of celebrities. Mainly this was to help hide their identity, and thus the ‘coolness’ (and that’s enough of that word...) idea of sunglasses was born.
Now sunglasses are used for multiple reasons, but the main reason is to protect your eyes from the sun, just make sure you get a good pair of polarised sunglasses for advanced protection. Just like skin, your eyes are vulnerable to damage caused by the sun. It can prematurely age your eyes and give you extra wrinkles where you’d prefer none. However, they are also a fashion statement, you can find a pair that suits any style you are interested in. If you look through the decades of fashion, you’ll find certain styles, but in general, popular sunglasses of any period are still fashionable today. Sunglasses are probably one of the most widely accepted and easily adaptable accessories you can add to your wardrobe.
Ideally, women’s sunglasses should suit where they are going to be worn. For example, at the beach, you may prefer a darker coloured lens to help protect your eyes from the sun, and at night a lighter lens will make use of the limited light available, and you’ll be able to wear them and still see where you’re going.
For a pair of sunglasses that compliment your face you should try and find a pair that has a shape that accentuates your facial features. Your face can fit into six different specific shapes:
On our website you can use the Virtual Try On tool, to find the perfect set of glasses to fit your face. All you need is a short video and then let the tool do the rest!
There are many other decisions you can make to get that perfect pair to suit almost any situation. However most brands are aware of the different features people have and made many different styles available. Have a look through our collection of designer sunglasses and you’ll find many popular brands such as, Polaroid, Oakley, Gucci, Burberry, Le Specs, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Emporio, and Ralph Lauren among various others.
Most women's sunglasses come in an array of styles, colours, materials and fit, and it can be hard to discover the ones that will fit you the best. By breaking it down to the core amounts, you can make the choice little bit easier, and soon you’ll be flashing that perfect pair at your next beach trip.
Ideally, a pair of sunglasses should fit in with your style and picking a pair that reflects the accents of your other items will limit clashing and make everything work together. If, for example, you’re into very wide-brimmed hats, then choosing an extra-wide set of women’s sunglasses will complete the look as the two items will match. If you’re into an understated look, then opting for a smaller frame may be perfect.
The frames for your sunglasses can fall into a few categories of type and structure, you can have:
After choosing your frame type, you can look at the materials. Most women’s sunglasses are made of either metal or plastic, but you can also get wood, acetate (a type of plastic) and titanium (a high strength metal).
By using the filters in our online shop you’ll be able to narrow down your search and find a suitable frame that fits your face and pleases your individual style.
Lens colour can largely depend on the frames that you have chosen. Women’s sunglasses are available in many different colours and shades, so it’s important to note that the colour you choose will be visible and affect your vision - while that may seem obvious it’s worth noting. If you select a dark colour, the glasses may be of little use in low light situations. For extremely bright conditions, such as at the beach, you may like to choose a dark colour - blues, greys and blacks are ideal. At night you can opt for any lighter coloured lens, such as peach, rose, yellow or green.
