Mirrored sunglasses have lenses that reflect light away from your eyes more than non-mirrored lenses. They don’t just add to your look but mirrored sunglasses can also provide extra protection from overhead sunlight when driving, while still allowing for enough light to filter through the bottom so that you can see where you’re going. Also, they are one of the trends for 2018. Here are a few ways you can match your attire with a pair of mirrored sunglasses.
Men's guide to mirrored sunglasses
With a suit
Be it a three-piece or a two-piece, sunglasses add to the suit-wearing experience. If you are going for a classic fit where the cut has a clean body shape. This style is perfect for those who aren’t used to wearing suits very often. Accentuate the look with time-tested classic metallic pilot sunglasses. We bet, this is a no-fail classic combination! If you are opting for a modern fit which falls between the classic and the slim shape, Tortoiseshell, or clear frames will look particularly good on these.
With cool casuals
This is the easiest one but many get it wrong. The idea is to keep it simple and symmetric. Over the top ideas just kills the vibe. Pick pilot shape sunglasses if you feel like wearing the essentials like a plain khaki-coloured chino, and a simple monochrome t-shirt. You can also pair this look with sunglasses that come with a transparent frame. Heading to the beach? Then get a light-coloured shorts, a graphic tee and sunglasses with coloured frames. Also, make sure you have the right footwear to match.
Ah! There is so much to choose from these, and the great thing is all of them are ‘shades friendly’. You can match them keeping the hue of your sunglasses in mind, or pick a classic shape (like tortoiseshell sunglasses) to complement your look. Two-tone floral, Water-Bled florals: The SS18 floral print trend, Ditsy florals or tropical prints, what’s it going to be?
