National Sunglasses Day is almost here and we’re so excited to celebrate!

Following prolonged ultraviolet (UV) exposure, American adults report they experience trouble seeing, sunburnt eyes or eyelids, irritated eyes, red or swollen eyes, wrinkles around the eyes and even cancer on or around the eyes. Plus, according to a recent survey by The Vision Council, 28.2 percent of American adults state their No. 1 concern about UV eye exposure is vision loss, yet 27 percent say they don’t typically wear sunglasses when outside. But with so many options, there’s no reason to not wear sunnies every time you step outside because no matter if it’s cold or hot, sunny or cloudy, summer or winter, the sun’s UV rays are always at play.
So, for the sake of protecting your eyes and adding extra flair to any ensemble, we gathered up this season’s hottest styles for guys and gals. Dive into daring oversized rounded, classic pilot-like, chic geometric and cool rectangle shapes that boast sophistication. Fast forward in futuristic frames that feature layered and translucent effects or rock a retro look in designs reminiscent of the past.
