So I recently had a minor…ok major panic attack when my favorite pair of sunglasses broke. I may have pitched a fit in the middle of a restaurant but I have a connection with my sunnies. I wear them every where; in the middle of summer on the beach and while shoveling snow in January. So long story longer I decided to do a little sunnie shopping with my good guy friend on a Saturday afternoon. Our shopping trip may or may not have been steamrolled by two lovely ladies so we’ve got triple the lady advice. Here are some of the styles out there that I really liked for the fellas.
Ray Ban Wayfarers
I have a soft spot for the Classic Wayfarers. Maybe it’s the touch of hipster inside of me but I went straight for these beauties in the store. Who wouldn’t love these?!?! Most ladies can’t pull this style off because they’re a larger pair but I think they look great on almost every guy. Gotta love a classic.
Ray Ban Clubmaster
I know again with the Ray Bans. Clubmasters are for your inner rock and roll soul. They have a little bit more pizzazz than the Wayfarers but still look great. I mean who wouldn’t say yes to say Marcus Mumford sporting them? And he’s got a British accent. I know he’s my soul mate: British, tall dark and handsome, in a band AND wears Ray Bans. Ok back to the sunglasses. Get these and I’ll love you forever.
Lactose Navigator Aviators
Aviators are perfection for any summer day and fit perfectly into any situation. I like the black frames on this pair. They don’t make the glasses look as flimsy as classic aviators so you don’t have to feel as bad tossing them around.
The Persol Supreme are little twist on the classic aviator. You already have a pair of aviators but you’re looking for something to show the ladies you’ve got a stylish side. The squared off larger lens are definitely great for those with bigger faces.
Banana Republic Shawn
Most people seem to buy their sunglasses in black and silver but the OCD in me has to match her sunglasses to her jewelry to her shoes. OCD…I know! So if you want a pair not in a traditional color, check out these Banana Republic beauties in Gold.
I tried this pair of Persol on myself in the store. Ok I tried on pretty much every pair of sunglasses in the store. Even though they looked fab on me they also looked great on guys. I would say most sunglasses are not unisex but these definitely are. They’re very similar to the Clubmaster but the tortoise frames tone down the hipster feel for those of you who don’t see yourselves hanging out on the Coachella fair grounds.
For the Sporty Spice in you. The Plaintiff is stylish but doesn’t scream ‘I love wearing my Nantucket Reds while riding my white BMW convertible around town with Lady Gaga blasting on the radio’. They’ve got a sport edge to them so you can get away with wearing them while playing in the softball league after work.
