Stylish Sunglasses for Women
Quick… If you had to pick one accessory you couldn’t live without, what would it be? For us it would without a doubt be sunnies. Think about it — could you fathom being stuck on a desert island without any (cute) eye protection? Stylish sunglasses are the epitome of fashion and function.
The History of Sunglasses
First, a little background. Can you believe sunglasses have been around since prehistoric times? Yup, according to the Sunglass Muesum, back in the day the Inuit peoples fashioned sunnies out of walrus ivory to protect their peepers. Then in the 12th century, the Chinese used smoky quartz for lenses to conceal judges’ facial expressions. Fast forward to 1929 when Sam Foster began selling the first mass-produced shades, which were all the rage on the Atlantic City boardwalk back then. Not long after, the polarized lens was invented.
Why You Need Them
Slipping on a pair of great frames (and maybe a cute headwrap) the morning after you stayed out just a wee bit too late is an instant way to cover up some eye baggage and add a bit of glam — but that’s not the only reason you need a great pair of sunglasses.
Wearing sunglasses can help reduce the risk of eye damage due to UV light (not to mention glare). UV rays can cause various eye issues, such as cataracts and damage to the retina. So wearing those sunglasses really are an important step towards eye health.
Cat Eyes Forever
They may have originated back in the 1950s, but a stylish cat eye frame is now both classic and iconic. It’s truly a style that stands the test of time and is our favorite type of sunglasses frame. Styles of today get a modern spin with fun colors like rose gold or mint!
