Summer is finally over and for many this is a real bummer. It is time to put away the shorts and swimsuits and bring out the coats and sweaters. Some people believe that sunglasses are no longer necessary because bright hot sunny days are over for the winter. However, that is not the case. The sun is out 365 days a year. With it come those damaging UV rays. One should protect their eyes from the sun all year long.

Some sunglasses such as Aviators and Wayfarers are timeless and never go out of style. Round shaped lenses like John Lennon’s glasses were a hit this summer and likely to be good for winter. This year, fashion experts say when it comes to sunglasses big is back and better for this winter. Oversized frames with designs and jeweled accents are the hit of this season. Bold, dramatic, and retro designs will help a woman stand out in the crowd. Although black and brown are the most popular colors, all dark bold colors are also fashionable this season.

One might consider wearing a lighter lens tint for winter. This makes it easier to see clearly on cloudy winter days. However, the lens needs to have UV 400 protection. The tint of a lens does not affect UV protection. Wide plastic arms or wraparound sunglasses help protect the side of the eye better than thin wire frames.

Lets all have a great winter. Ladies when choosing your winter sunglasses remember… go big, go bold, get wild, and be extravagant!
