ACCESSORIES REPORT: Snow Day Perfect Sunglasses

Accessories Report

In the summer we reach for our sunglasses to protect our eyes from the gleaming sun (I know some of us are wishing summer would come a little sooner); they are summer’s best accessory, but they can also be winter’s saving grace.

This Fashionisto made sure to grab his favorite pair of sunglasses to protect his eyes from the glare of the winter wonderland that is Colgate in the winter. The great thing about sunglasses is that they go with any outfit. This pair goes well with his Timberland boots, jeans, red jacket, hoodie and hat. But they would also go great with some board shorts and a classic T-shirt. They are so versatile!  Wear your favorite pair alone or with other accessories. This Fashionisto paired his with a nice knit beanie, a great way to avoid the blinding gleam of the snow and the harsh winds of winter.  However you choose to wear your sunglasses make sure they are both versatile and fashionable. If the metallic blue-mirrored lens sunglasses are a little too fratty for you, you can try some more subtle shades. My picks for this winter season are these Gucci sunglasses with gradient lenses and these Super Sunglasses black matte sunglasses. Each will add to an outfit and your winter.

I know it’s hard to think about sunglasses without thinking about the summer, but I promise you’ll be happy you invested in some good sunglasses for the winter. You deserve more than a squinty view of the snow dusted streets.

Spotted: Sunglasses were paired with many looks on Gucci’s fall 2013 menswear show.
