Women’s Sunglasses

Women’s sunglasses are often considered a beauty accessory in addition to their practical purpose. Sunglasses come out when the sun does, especially for people who are driving, on beaches or on ski slopes. The idea is to protect the eyes from bright light and in many cases from UV rays as well. But of course, as movie stars have taught us, fashion sunglasses can add glamor and mystery to your look.

Lenses for women’s sunglasses

Women’s sunglasses come in an endless and ever-changing array of styles. Narrow lenses, wide lenses, rectangular lenses, aviator styles, oval frames, granny glasses,  geometric shapes, wraparound styles and even those types in irregular shapes for the fun personality types, or maybe a party occasion. There are also a wide variety of styles of darkening the lens, including those that darken as conditions get brighter, called “photochromic,” best known as the PhotoGray and PhotoBrown coatings and Transitions lenses. There is also a gradient lens style, which means that the lens is colored darker toward the top of the lens and lightens in hue toward the bottom.

Light blocking qualities of sunglasses

Sunglasses should be worn when it is daytime and you are outdoors or riding in a vehicle. UV protection is of utmost importance in any daylight circumstance. Sunshine can damage the eyes and cause macular degeneration even through windows. So you don’t want to be without the protection afforded by sunglasses. There are polarized versions of women’s at most of the larger stores that sell women’s sunglasses. Polarized sunglasses are designed to reduce glare. They are especially suited for driving. These glasses will reduce the glare from the highway, the hood of the car and any object that emits the glare. They work by the vertical polarizers in the lenses counteracting the horizontally polarized light that radiates from flat surfaces as the sun shines on them. These are not best for snow sports although. The ability to distinguish shapes in the snow is cut down with this type of lens.

Frame styles for women’s sunglasses

Women’s sunglasses can come in metallic frames and colors like silver, gold, bronze, copper or brass. They can come in metallic finishes in such colors as hot pink. The frames can be plastic, rubber, wood, glass, chrome, titanium or many other substances that become popular or mass produced. Since sunglasses are so popular they are fashioned from the current trends in nature and or science quite often, as well as antique frames. Women’s sunglasses also sport lenses in different colors. The color of the lenses can also vary in intensity from dark to almost clear, just like a regular pair of eyeglasses with no noticeable tint. The color of the lenses can be gray, brown, blue, black, pink, yellow – although this is reserved more for night vision glasses – orange, amber, green or purple. The frames of the sunglasses can match the lenses or be in a contrasting or harmonizing color. Sunglass frames also come in patterns. You can purchase the sunglasses for women with frames in animal prints such as leopard or cheetah if you want. Several colors of tortoiseshell are also available in women’s sunglass frames, as well frames that sport rhinestones or other gems. There are also rimless styles in women’s sunglasses.
