SUNNIES FOR DUMMIES: A Sunglasses Style Guide
Featuring Shevoke + Le Specs + Spitfire
Sunglasses have traditionally been categorized by the shape of the frame (i.e. wayfarers, aviators, cateyed, round). While this system of sunglass nomenclature may be categorically convenient for those with a “one-frame-fits-all” philosophy, there are many other variables to consider when choosing the perfect pair of sunnies - especially for those of us who are style and shape versatile. Some of us prefer to pick sunnies based on mood and style. Here are a couple different categories we like to consider when shopping for our next perfect pair.
