While Kanye West has got all the cool kids on the block wearing drape, shuttle or drapes glass, depending on what you call them, last year’s Wayfarer craze is still hot. Sunglasses the color of popsicles are also highly popular much thanks to Kanye West, and they can be nabbed up for cheap cheaply at a random open market, making them a perfect short term purchase for sprinkling up a summer outfit with something unusual.
The highest level of coolness comes with a pair of black shades. Stealth is the aspiration meaning that the shades should be darker than Ace of spade with discreetly or non visible logos at all. Large shades concealing the eyes and major areas around the face create mystery and mystery is sexy. Think of a female jet pilot wearing a helmet with a pitch black visor, not being able to too her entire face creates is intriguing curiosity. Preferably the glasses worn should have a minimalistic design, but the size and darkness makes them avant-garde, bold and eye catching. A point worn mentioning is that large shades might be overwhelming to people with small faces and it’s therefore advised to try pairs on together with an honest friend of good taste.
