ShadesRoom 101

Hello Handsome , Hello Beautiful!!!!

Today is such a beautiful day, with sun shining beautifully and extending its rays, we can conclude it’s a perfect day for our “sunnies“.

Actually, everyday and any day is perfect for a pair of glasses.

I get to ask people often about what kind of glasses they are putting on and the conversation usually goes:

Me: Buddy, what kind of shades is this?

Buddy : RayBan

Me : Nope, I didn’t ask for the brand, I’m asking for the type.

This is usually my conversation with most people regarding Sunglasses and I have come to the notice that most people do not know the kind of glasses they are wearing rather they are more concerned about the brand they are putting on.

So basically, my blog post today will be about the different kinds of Sunglasses that exist on planet Earth.

Are you excited to learn more?

I am pleased to show you more….

Different types of Sunglasses

WAYFARER

Wayfarerย  is one of the most worn glasses especially among men. Its like their favorite pair of glasses.

Wayfarer was originated by an American Optical designer “Raymond Stegeman” in 1952. He worked with the RayBanย co-parent at that time.

They have distinctive trapezoidal frame with sturdy temple arms which gives it a more masculine look. Interestingly, the word ‘wayfarer’ means someone who travels by foot.

AVIATOR

Aviator as the name implies were initially designed for pilots by Bausch&Lomb to protect their eyes while flying.

They are known to have dark reflective lenses usually covering the whole eyeball area with thin metal frames to block the sun from all angles. This design, i can say is one of my favorite.

BROWLINE

Looking for some old school style with a touch of modern feel?ย  Browlines are the perfect glasses and are among the most perfect retro designs ever created.It got its name ‘browline‘ because it has the thick frame that runs across the brows. It is also characterized by its thin rims below the lenses.

RETRO SQUARE

Just like the name sounds, it has the classic look it gives coupled with the fact that it comes with a square shape and thick boxy frame.

The retro style generally gives the timeless and classy look.

ROUND

You want to give that statement look? Round glasses are here to help. They are characterized by the round lenses. It can come in thick or thin frame, plastic or metal.

Put on this pair of glasses and walk that walk baby.

CAT EYE

Cat eye is one of my favorite. They give this chic and feminine look. They are characterized by their outer edges. They could come in metal, plastic or wooden.

Cat eye on men has definitely grown to become a fashion statement and it is usually gorgeous.

BUTTERFLY

Butterfly glasses are usually large in sizes and shapes. They usually cover the whole eye area. They somewhat look like a butterfly.

They give this cool bossy look.

BROW BAR

The brow bar glasses are stylish pieces for sunny days. They are known for the bar that run along your brows and they give this fun, stylish piece to your look.

KEYHOLE BRIDGE

Keyhole Bridge works well on any style. They were created for people with flat nose. Can you see that opening at the bridge? What does it look like ? A keyhole right?

You guessed right! This type of glasses were created for people with low nose bridge so the glasses can stay put.

They look great on everyone tho!!!

SPORT

Just like the name implies, sport glasses were made for adventure seekers. They sleek thin lenses and the frames are quite thick. They are usually made with polarized lenses and they fight glare.

That’s the end of today’s blog post. I do hope you gained something.
