Summer is here and the sun is finally out, which is a legitimate concept here in Boston because of the four seasons and all. So during the summer, it’s imperative to celebrate the solitary months that the sun is actually out and shining with the most appropriate summer accessory: sunglasses! Sunglasses are wonderful for a number of reasons. They keep your eyes healthy by protecting your retinas from harsh rays. They shield them from migraine-inducing brightness and judgment when you’re hungover. And they make people watching in public places more discreet.
In this day and age there are numerous styles of sunglasses to fit any personality type, and mood and any fashion phase. The possibilities are endless, making the prospect of settling on a pair a little bit daunting. I myself have always been discouraged about purchasing sunglasses because I don’t think that I have a face that’s made to rock them. No matter how many I try on they are always too small, too bug eyed, or just insolubly wrong for me. But in the vast world of sun-protecting spectacles there, somewhere, lays the ideal pair.
But in the mean time, here are tons of different sunglasses styles ranging from smart to shocking that would be perfectly rock-able for the summer. With all the variety, anyone, regardless of preference, is bound to find the perfect pair.
