Sunglasses Trends for Summer 2016

Sunglasses Trends for Summer 2016

Everyone should have at least one decent pair of sunglasses, and be prepared for sunny days. They don’t only make you look a lot cooler, but they’re also a form of protective eyewear. Sunglasses have been popular as a fashion accessory since the 1940s, so if they were wearing them then, you definitely should wear them now! To celebrate the summer sun, we are also offering 25% off ADIDAS SUNGLASSES for the month of June. Here’s why a good pair of sunnies are a must this summer:

#1: Oversized Sunglasses Are a Must

While you might like tiny glasses, it is the oversized that rules the runway for the spring and summer seasons of 2016 and we expect it will continue on into the autumn and winter as well.

#2: Cat Eye Sunglasses Still Rule SupremeCat and Round Combinations Peek Through

The cat and round combination is what many are rooting for now, combining two of their most revered styles into a single look.

#3: Intriguing Geometric Sunglasses

If you prefer the rectangular look over than of the round or cat eye, you are in luck! It goes hand in hand with the whole IT boom happening around the world.

#4: Aviators Still Dominate the Style

#5: Dark Lenses Are a Favourite

Lenses can come in many different colours but it appears that the dark is holding tight to the top slot, with good reason. It is the best to protect against the strong glare of the sun.

#6: Sunglasses with Colourful Lenses

#7: Blue Keeps Appearing Everywhere

#8: Plastic Frames to the Glasses

We do most definitely see wire rims on the different sunglasses for 2016, but it is the plastic, colourful frames that that catches our attentions best.

  • When choosing sunglasses choose high protection, specially designed sunglasses and look out for the CE mark, which shows they meet European safety standards.
  • Choose sunglasses that block out 99 to 100 per cent of UV-A and UV-B rays.
  • Glare is frequently cited as the cause of road traffic accidents, but the right pair of sunglasses can prevent it.
