Road Trip-Ready Sunnies for Summer 2018

Summer is the perfect time for a road trip, and a road trip means it’s the perfect time for a new pair of sunglasses! Summer is pretty long here in Houston, so you have to look cool even if you won’t feel cool again until November.

Fit + Fun + (Protection) Factor

A quick note about investing in a pair of great, well-fitting sunglasses—do it! A road trip means wearing glasses for hours on end, so proper fit is important. You also want to make sure your prescription is up-to-date; when was your last eye exam? Finally, think about special coatings and tints designed to protect your eyes while driving. Stop by either Eye Elegance location and a staff member will be happy to help you!

  • Darker greys and browns are better for driving than bright hues like blue or pink;
  • When you are choosing a lens size and shape, consider your peripheral as well as your head-on vision;
  • Remember the following keywords: Durable, flexible, comfortable!

A classic aviator is a great option here, and you won’t regret treating yourself to a luxury brand like Cartier. Right now we’re obsessed with the Santos de Cartier Aviator-style leather-trimmed gold-plated sunglasses, a modern and luxurious take on the aviator. Cool details include a snap-fastening trim at the bridge and that recognizable Cartier nail head design in contrasting silver-tone.

Carbon Fibre

Speaking of lightweight and comfortable, we are big fans of Blac Eyewear’s original Carbon Fibre frame. Inspired by Claus Bellinger’s love of Formula 1, the Carbon Fibre frame is carbon fiber reinforced with titanium to create a strong, lightweight, custom frame—made individually, by hand, for each customer.
