Sunglasses.

Monday, 16 June 2008


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.

I completely agree that the ultimate chic glasses are black ones, and I especially like the image of a cool female jet pilot sporting a pair,but I must admit,if I could get my hands on a pair of Popsicles coloured shutter glasses a la Kanye West I would be filled with Technicolor joy.

I need to try out a pair of shutter glasses. Can you actually walk around in them and without getting nuts after 15 minutes of having your vision compromised???

Your sunglasses are awesome! Where are they from? It's true, I've actually been wondering about the whole visual impairment predicament of shutter glasses too!!

I'm digging the closeup shot! The trench paired with a banker-collared shirt and contrasting bow tie makes this stellar getup real jazzy!

Mystery and sexiness go hand in hand. Applying that principle to sunglasses is a great idea!

Most of them are cool but I prefer to keep it simple. Give me a pair of Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses and some chucks and I'm good to go.
