My Sunglasses, My Style

Summer is coming with all its rage. The necessity that pop in my mind with the very though of summer is a  pair of Sunglasses. By that I DO NOT mean that it is necessary only for the summer. In fact is a necessity throughout the year. But summer is the time when it is most necessary.
Many people have this weird notion that sunglasses are to be used only when the sun is bright and can be done without on cloudy or shady days.
NO ABSOLUTELY NOT !!! The sunglasses shield you not only through the visible(the VIBGYOR part) and tactile(the infrared part) parts of the light spectrum but also from the invisible and the most harmful part of sunlight i.e. the Ultraviolet (or UV) spectrum which cause harm to your retina and can also cause cancer on prolonged exposure.
Now what is the best thing about sunglasses? Not only do they serve the very important purpose of cooling and protecting your eyes from those harmful rays,they have also evolved as fashion accessories. Use them to enhance your facial features or use them as a hairband, they look cool both ways!! And another plus point is,they effectively cover those dark circles that you are trying so hard to hide from the world!
So when Blogadda came with this fantabulous offer,I checked out some sunglasses at gkboptical.com . They have a huge range of sunglasses from a price bracket of Rs.500 to over Rs.30000 with huge discounts upto 30%. They deliver free in India for all glasses above Rs.500 and worldwide at a very minimal shipping charge. The range of sunglasses is huge with multiple world renowned brands like RayBan, Bvlgari, Oakley, Prada, Versace, DKNY, Adidas, Puma, D&G and many others.Many different variants like Aviators,Wayfarers,Cat eyed, Polaroids, colored glasses are also available. Do checkout their website for more.
Here are the two I selected. I tried to select two very different ones for different looks.

The Gaga -
Lady Gaga was the first person who popped in my mind, the very moment I saw these Cat eye shaped sunglasses. With a pinkish tinge to the glasses and the pink detailing on the frame,this one was an instant favorite.
I would pair it with a summer dress with floral print / nautical stripes and a pair of flat calf length gladiators. Come summer!! Ah they remind me of an escapade to the beaches.

            VERSACE VE 4203 914/13

This is how it would look on a person with an oval face cut. you can try it on your face with their try-on feature. Click the price link under the picture to use it.

The Animal-
Animal prints are a rage now. I wouldn't dare wearing an animal print top or an animal print denim but these almost cheetah printed sunglasses from Ray Ban are a great option for experimenting.
I would pair it with a crisp white shirt, dark blue denims, nude pumps and a similar animal print clutch or nail art. The more daring ones can opt for similar printed pumps instead of the nude ones and minus the nailart and animal printed clutch. The trick is not to overdo it and not to mix up the prints.

             RAY-BAN RB 4129 710/13

This is how somebody with an oval face would look :)


Did you like the two looks I suggested?? Do you have something different in mind?? What are the ones you liked the best from their collections?? And what is your favorite style of sunglasses?? Mine are Jackie O's. Do tell me in the comments sections.
Till we see again!!
Love

    1. I like aviators,but they somehow don't look good on me. You can buy a Jackie O (thats what the over sized ones are called),am sure you'll look good in them.

  10. Sunglasses are always good especially when the weather gets hot! Add a nice light top and a pair of skinny jeans and you're good to go for the summer! Does any know if the Waterless jeans by levi’s has hit the markets? I heard about it while I was in the US, am not sure if it’s launched in India?

  13. Yes, it is true that Sunglasses protect eyes from harmful UV rays particularly if it is a polarized one. I owe a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses of Wayfarer and Aviator Styles. Sunglasses not only protect eyes, but also gives a stylish look to everyone who wears it.

  14. I can’t imagine the world without you. I only know it would be a much different, much less comforting place.
