Well, it’s past July 4th, I guess there is no denying that Summer is here. While I wear sunglasses year round, I think summer is a good time to revisit your sunglass game. So we’ll be taking a look at a few varieties in the upcoming weeks.
An important part of a useful summer sunglass is a lens with UV protection. Not only does it protect your eye, but a proper UV coating also protects the delicate skin around your eye. You know, that part that ages faster than any part of your face.
That is why we like LotFancy Women’s Resin Frame Metal Temples Sunglasses. They have UV400 protection, which means that they guard against 100% of both UVA and UVB rays, so your eyes and orbital skin are completely protected by these lenses.
Sunglasses with UV protection is especially imperative if you don’t have a sunscreen that you can tolerate wearing around your eyes. It took me a long time to find a few sunscreens that don’t irritate my eye skin, and even then, and the extra layer of protection is good to protect the thin skin of the orbital area.
The oversized styling of the frames also works in your favor as far as skin protection. The top of your cheekbones is a prime spot for sun damage, so a pair of sunglasses that covers the area is a wonderful aid in keeping the area wrinkle and age spot free.
I also really like the white colored frames. There is something so fresh, crispy, and summery about white frames. Do you remember the last scene in Gwenyth Paltrow’s Great Expectations? Her oversized white frames exuded classic preppy chic. They also come in black if you want a more classic look.
While I use sunglasses everyday that there is the slightest of sun peaking out (over my sunscreen that I wear rain or shine, of course), these sunglasses are a must for vacations to sunny locales. Did you read that fantastic article about Italy in Allure this month? How amazing would these glasses look as you spend the day on the gorgeous Italian coast?
Lot Fancy makes a great pair of sunglasses at a reasonable cost, and the UV400 protection rivals $200 pairs of sunglasses. So whether you are looking for an everyday pair or an extra pair for the beach, these are worth picking up!.
