Nice And Safe Sunglasses

First of all, you should pay attention to UV protection of the sunglasses you want. They must provide protection from ultraviolet radiation, which is a component of sunlight causing eye disease. There is a government agency controlling sunglass manufacture and sales in the country, called the FDA. It recommends the consumers to look for lens in sunglasses that are able to block 99-100% of UVA and UVB radiation. You will understand that’s what you are looking for if you see the label reading either UV 400 or 100% UV protection.

Talking about sunglasses lens materials, it should be noted that they differ quite a bit – some of them are heavier, but some are more durable. The most popular materials used for sunglass lens are the following:

1) Polycarbonate is a type of durable lightweight plastic.
2) Another type of plastic – CR-39 – is mostly used for prescription-grade lens.
3) Glass is very durable but heavy.

When choosing sunglasses, also pay attention to lens coating and tints: apart from UV filtering, there are more coatings that are applied to sunglass lens. For example, tints are the colors helping lens absorb light as it passes through them. It’s up to you what color to choose, but you should take into account some important benefits:

– gray lens will reduce brightness without distorting color.
– brown and amber colors will reduce all types of glare, even the one created by the blue frequency in sunlight making everything appear hazy, but they will cause more color distortion than gray lens do.
– yellow color will reduce the haze described above even better than browns, thus extremely sharpening up the view, but they will also distort colors more then the others.
– green color will help reduce glare and filter out some of the blue light, thus offering you good contrast between objects.
– rose lens are usually preferred by people going in for water sports or other outdoor activities, as rose color is able to provide you good contrast for objects seen against green or blue backgrounds.

You may also consider purchasing sunglasses with polarized lenses. They have polarizing films, which help reduce the glare from the light bouncing off of some objects like water, highways and so on. Again, it’s up to you.

It is also recommended that you watch for glasses featuring lens scratch resistance, which have a thin coating on lens too. Be aware that plastic lens will scratch more easily than glass ones. Mirrored lenses are also very popular today, and you have surely seen some with a mirror finish on the outside of the lens. However, such lens will scratch easily, as the mirror finish is applied last.

There are also sunglasses with photochromatic (photochromic) lens, which will automatically become darker if exposed to UV radiation. This shift occurs quickly with your surroundings changing from bright to dim. Finally, you can purchase sunglasses with anti-reflective coatings that are able to reduce the reflection caused by light hitting the back side of lens. This will keep the light from bouncing right into your eyes.

Then comes the material of sunglass frames. It can be plastic, base metals, titanium, aluminum and lots of other. You should just try on different frame types in order to compare their weight and choose which one feels the best.

Meanwhile, kids also need protection from UV radiation and glare. Therefore, you should take the same care when choosing them sunglasses. Don’t buy little play ones, but get them something that will protect their eyes.

Some Accessories For Party Season

The Scarf.

Nobody ventures out in the open without a scarf in these cold, cold winter months. Scarves, however, are more than just to keep you warm. Make the season’s must-have accessory look good by mixing and matching and by simply being imaginative!

The Tights.

This year, draw attention to your legs, not by being bare, but by covering up! Today’s tights are fun, chic, and simply irresistible! Dare to go colorful, or be downright bold with prints.

Unless you’re planning on defying the elements, you will, of course, need one. Don’t grab the same old ratty one that you’ve had hanging in your coat closet for the past 2 decades or so. Instead, invest in one – or two! – that complement your couture.

Wear Maxi Skirt in Style

Choose a maxi skirt that fits you well. It’s true that wearing a long skirt that does not flatter your figure is not good. Try to find maxi skirts that fits you well and flatter your physique. After all, you had chosen to wear the fashion piece to look gorgeous and trendy.

It’s also highly recommended to wear printed maxi skirts. These long skirts are very attractive and easy to style. You have to pair it with a plain-colored blouse and dark-hued accessories to emphasize glam and elegance. In most cases, printed long skirts provide both chic style and comfort at the same time. Your signature makeup and positive attitude will add glamour to the look.

It’s good to wear long skirts with high slit during evening parties. To create a glamorous look, dark-colored skirts with a high slit is the perfect piece. You’ll need to pair it with a modish blouse, huge accessories and sleek hairstyle to complete the ensemble. In addition, maxi skirts with thigh-high slit are perfect for cocktail hours as long as the clothing pieces are paired with glittery accesories.

Many style lovers mention that wearing scarf to highlight one’s long skirt is stunning. It will brighten your face and flaunt your pretty features. However, there’s no need to over-do the style. Adding some simple accessories and wearing on-trend makeup is enough.

Oversized Vintage Sunglasses

If you are having trouble visualizing these oversized sunglasses, think of Elvis Presley. Elvis wore the sunglasses that were popular during the late 70s and early 80s. His favorite style seems to have been the aviator shape glasses. Aviator glasses are in the shape of a right triangle with the corners well rounded. The glasses are wider at the outer edge of the face and narrower toward the nose. The lenses are basically a straight line across the top.

Another popular style had rectangular lenses. These glasses were often curved to fit around the face, but the basic shape was that of a rectangle. Of course, once again corners of the rectangle were rounded off. Another variation of the rectangle was the square glasses.

A final shape of oversized sunglasses that deserves mention here are the round sunglasses. They were not as popular for as long and were worn only by a few people. However, there were round oversized sunglasses as well.

While metal frames had become popular in the late 60s with the rise of the Beatles, their use seems to have become less popular with the popularity of the oversized glasses. The oversized sunglasses used plastic frames. With the plastic frames, the most popular were the white or black, although there was a while that these frames featured paint splatters to break up the color.

When looking for oversized vintage sunglasses, you will find that there are new sunglass style that have been set aside for years that have been brought back out for sale. Additionally you will find many replicas of the oversized vintage sunglasses as well as new designs that may have never actually surfaced during the vintage years.

If you want authentic oversized vintage sunglasses, your best bet is to shop at thrift stores or estate sales. If you want replica glasses you may find many options in your local boutiques. If you do not find what you are looking for, be sure that you also check online.
