It’s easy for women when shopping for a new pair of sunglasses to find themselves feeling somewhat skeptical about the hype that is usually associated with those created by top designers. Women’s designer sunglasses are a more expensive edition of the standard shades and this is due to the sunglasses’ visual appeal.
In order to further enhance the value of the sunglasses, designers at times attach company logos on them. Style and fashion have become an important part of the sunglasses design since the 1980’s, when their purpose wasn’t anymore to only protect the eyes from the dangerous UV light.
Fashion VS Quality
When shopping for sunglasses, current trends might sway you to place style and flamboyance above practical functionality. Even though fashion statement sunglasses attract a huge buyer base, eye protection should be considered as the most important criteria when it comes to buying designer shades with any other buying considerations coming second. It should be noted that the extra price of designer shades does come with additional benefits you would otherwise not receive if you buy the cheaper pair of glasses.
It is evident the eyewear industry has advanced in the past few years. Many specialist brands are making superior quality, carefully crafted sunglasses that are not only functional, but also look trendy. The lenses are always guaranteed to have excellent eye protective qualities. Such sunglasses have the ability to become your trademark, that is, something that not only emphasises your personality, but also reinforces your style and credentials.
Designer sunglasses for women come in various lens colours, with grey sunglasses lenses being the most popular type. This is due to the fact that the colour reduces brightness, but does not distort colour. Green lenses provide excellent colour contrast between objects, whereas brown and amber lens tints diminish glare, while distorting colour more than their grey counterparts. Blue designer sunglasses lenses are gaining a lot of popularity among women owing to its numerous attributes.
The manufacturers of women’s designer sunglasses produce the highest quality and trendiest styles. It is advisable to go for styles that have demonstrated staying power, and established long-term success, not the ones that are the next hottest thing, only to fizzle out on the market shortly. A good example are aviators that still dazzle.

It is good to take time at department stores and optical shops to review the many brands of designer sunglasses. This makes it easier to match better a specific design to one’s personality and style. Besides, women can have an opportunity to ask the staff or sales professionals the qualities of each brand.
