Have a sunglasses wardrobe is something you may not have considered but living in San Diego calls for sunshine specs almost 364 days a year… Ok, maybe not during May Grey or June Gloom… but anytime otherwise!! You need three styles in your wardrobe: a sporty frame a brown or black frame and a wire/metal frame.
This style frame should be light in weight so you can run, jump and play. I like to focus on function versus fashion but there’s always an updated version so you look current. I tend to incorporate some type of pop of color in the frame or lens.
If you are getting dressed up and wear mostly brown or black shoes and belt, choose that color to match your accessories. They are perfect for a wedding or afternoon date. Classics like the Wayfarer or a modern thicker frame are perfect.
Every man’s wardrobe should have at least one wire/metal frame as a perfect neutral accessory. My favorite glasses are aviators because there are so many varieties out there. This frame is great for every day casual or dress up. Wearing them with shorts and flip flops or with a suit and tie elevates your style just the same.
Just like clothing, when you layer it, you immediately add more visual interest. I often talk about the third piece: most people just wear a first piece, a top, and a second piece, a bottom. The third piece adds dimension, personality and lots of optical excitement. Add a third piece to your neck, ears or hands, too!
