27 June is Sunglasses Day! Here are 8 picks for your travel pleasure.
Whether you fancy aviators or are a diehard Wayfarer fan, there’s no doubt sunglasses are a great way to accessorise any outfit. Of course, sunglasses aren’t just for fashion. The right pair of sunglasses should have lenses that blocks 100 percent UVA and UVB rays. Ideally, you’ll also want to get polarised lenses so as to reduce glare at the beach, in the snow, or out on the water. Take note, however, polarised lenses do not take the place of UV protection. Whatever design you pick out, be sure to pick one that blocks out harmful UV rays. Alternatively, you can swap out your current lens for a better pair.
Here are 8 designs you won’t be able to resist:
For an adventure holiday
From snowboarding to skydiving, as long as the activity involves adrenaline, you’re there! This lightweight pair of sunglasses offers full UV protection without being cumbersome, making it the ideal pair for every sports enthusiast.
