If you’ve been keeping up with the Vizio Optic Blog, you already know that contrary to popular belief, it’s important to wear sunglasses in the winter! You may not be spending your days out by the pool or on the beach, but the cloudy days we so often have this season just bring the sun’s rays to you in different ways. Rather than wearing your usual summer shades, designer sunglasses for the winter have a couple different requirements.
The two main things you want in a pair of sunglasses this winter are gray lenses and a cozy fit. The color of these lenses are optimal for winter lighting conditions, and the close fit allows full protection from the low and varied angles at which the UVA and UVB rays are coming through the clouds. Maui Jim sunglasses and Mosley Tribes sunglasses make great options for men and women.
Maui Jim Kahana sunglasses are a semi-rimless frame with a lightweight design. The sporty look is perfect for looking casual in outdoor activities, with oval lenses in light gray to ward off the rays bouncing off of the white snow.
Maui Jim Alana sunglasses for women are a chic way to stay protected this winter. The curvy black frame mixes plastic and gunmetal temples, which are accented by leaf-shaped hinges in gold. The metal arm pieces are capped with plastic for a comfortable fit.
Those who like a unisex look should try out Mosley Tribes Hillyard sunglasses, which are also fitted with light gray lenses. Made entirely with plastic, this style has a straight top rim and straight black arms – the perfect option for the minimalist in you.
