As you probably know, the primary function of a pair of sunglasses is to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays. Looking directly at the sun can cause you serious eye damage, and eventually leads to medical conditions such as cataracts and eye cancer.
Now you might be thinking that in order to have a pair of sunglasses that protects your eyes from all of the bad things will mean that you have to end up with some pretty geeky-looking eyewear, but you will be pleased to learn that sunglasses come in all sorts of cool designs.
Achieving the Rockstar look
When people go cruising around during the summer, one awesome look that many people want to achieve is the rockstar look! It always makes a person feel great to be walking around, strutting their stuff and acting just like a celeb!
Regardless of whether you are heading down to the beach or heading into town with your friends, you might have got your clothes sorted for your rockstar look but what about your sunglasses? Without them, you just can’t quite pull that look off! So if you are a bit stuck for ideas, then here is a handy guide to help you out!
Essential things to look for in sunglasses
OK, before you head off down the shops in search of your next pair of sunglasses, there are a few important points that you need to remember before you buy:
Lenses – make sure that the lenses of the sunglasses you are checking out offer 100% UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays;
Frame and fit – you need to ensure that the sunglasses you buy are totally comfortable, after all, people have different head and face shapes, sadly there is no “one size fits all” policy when it comes to sunglasses (well, not unless you want to walk around in agony);
Scratch resistance – even the most expensive pair of sunglasses can be susceptible to scratches unless the lenses have a scratch-resistant coating on them;
Price – don’t buy a cheap pair of sunglasses, as you can be guaranteed that they will either end up giving you headaches or they will be poorly constructed and only last for a very short period of time!
Rockstar sunglasses for men
Everyone knows that if you are looking for a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses, then you are most certainly looking to pull off the Rockstar look! Aviators and sport-style sunglasses are very trendy for those seeking to complete the rock star look.
Just make sure that you get yourself a pair of sunglasses that will suit what you will be mostly doing – i.e. Walking, going to the beach, or any other type of outdoor activity.
Rockstar sunglasses for women
For women that want to go for the rock star look, some cool retro Hollywood styles have made something of a comeback, especially sunglasses that have large thick frames from the likes of brands such as Vince Camuto, Burberry or Chloe.
