Though we can’t believe it’s now almost autumn, summer is over and we’ve got to accept it.
So, if it’s time to pack away your summer wardrobe and get ready for the cold, crisp weather, you may want to take a look at our top tips for autumn eyewear.
Autumn is a transitional period, with changing light and changing weather, and some people opt for a lens that changes with the light.
You may choose to go for a Photochromic lens as a way of adapting to the changing light, which comes along with autumn.
Photochromic lenses are lenses that are clear (or nearly clear) indoors and darken automatically when exposed to sunlight.
Other terms sometimes used for photochromic lenses include “light-adaptive lenses” and “variable tint lenses.”
Photochromic sunglasses are primarily for outdoor wear.
They are not as clear indoors as other photochromic lenses, but they provide extra comfort in bright sunlight and behind the wheel.
Light-adaptive lenses can be placed in just about any fashion frame.
A photochromic lens is different to a polarized lenses.
Now you can get the benefits of polarization in an everyday lens.
These type of lenses are virtually clear indoors.
Outdoors they increase polarization as they darken.
This means that you can get crisper, sharper vision in the dappled light of a quiet residential street or the full glare of a city street.
Which Frames To Buy?
In the period between summer and winter you may be trying to decide between light and dark colours or heavy and light frames.
You don’t have to keep the colours completely neutral, but a toned down colour palette works for every season and looks great during autumn.
A great frame such as the Infinity 2440 in animal print is colourful and interesting yet toned down in black and silver.
Another way to add some colour into an autumn frame is to reflect the typical autumn colours including red and brown.
Different shades of brown and red work together on the Antares 5025 frame below.
The glasses look great for autumn and really suit the colder months.
The glasses match the multi-coloured leaves on trees during autumn.
The frames are available in red and blue – both colours embody typical autumnal colours.
Although in the UK we lack sunshine, the sun still occasionally makes an appearance during autumn.
It’s important to have a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.
We recommend a simple yet stylish frame such as the Ray-ban RB3025 – Aviator with flash lenses.
If you want to play it safe and go for something a bit more minimal and perhaps not colourful at all, then a nice black frame will take you through autumn to winter and beyond.
A frame such as Oakley OX5038 Metal Plate is a great option to see you through the months.
A well-made pair of glasses such as these ones exude quality and provide a comfortable fit. A good all-round frame is a great crowd pleaser.
