Summer is practically around the corner, and you’ll probably be spending a good amount of time outdoors in the sunshine—which means you’re going to need sunglasses. We’re already using this summer eyewear staple to protect our eyes from major glares and harmful UV rays, so why not opt for a pair of polarized sunglasses?
With the added benefits of an increased contrast, visual clarity, and the removal of reflected glares, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t have a pair of your own. That being said, polarized sunglasses have had a reputation for being on the less-than-chic side, primarily as sporting glasses or, dare we say it, dad style.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with embracing the dad trend, but if that seems a little far-fetched for your personal style, just know there are chic and stylish frames with polarized lenses that’ll fit your every need. Wear throughout the summer—and every other season for that matter. Once you switch over to polarized, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
