There are so many brands out there that sell sunglasses, reading glasses and fashionable (no-sense) glasses. One brand that truely never gets old, are Ray-Ban. I have a few pairs already, though cannot get enough of them. My first Ray-Ban sunglasses I bought are actually glasses with corrections, as well. I barely use them anymore (maybe I should more often), though I still do love them. After having bought my second Ray-Ban’s, the green-mirrored aviators, I have almost forgotten about my first pair. Now after I have moved to Zurich, packed and unpacked boxes, I found them again & fell in love, once again.
I love being able to switch between the retro-style and the aviator, which have a modern touch due to the mirroring. Although I love the green lenses, I am now looking for a more down-to-earth pair. One, I can wear with a more casual business style and one that doesn’t look too much like summer. I think sunglasses are great accessories, not just in summer. Sunglasses look great in winter too, and speaking of winter: I have never understood that weird face people make, when talking about sunglasses in winter. Does the sun stop shining, just because the season has changed? I highly doubt it. Especially in the winter, when out in the mountains or when you have snow on the streets, the light reflects even more. Sunny winter days are surely my favorite days in the cold season.
The next Ray-Ban’s on my wishlist: the gold-framed aviators with black lenses. I love the contrast that black and gold create. In general, gold is surely my favored metal from all. After having to wear corrected glasses again (while using the PC, reading or driving – the general activities, which require concentration), I decided to go with statement glasses. I have become a huge fan of the nerd-glasses, previous to getting my own. Once I was told, that I would need to wear glasses again, the decision to get nerd-glasses was taken immediately. I tried on several glasses from several brands, but ultimately the Ray-Ban’s were the ones that really made me feel most comfortable. One thing is clear: If I do need to wear glasses, at least have them be an accessory to complete the whole outfit.
As much as I am now praying towards the brand, there are, of course, so many other great brands out there. Once I have saved up a bit more and will be able to spend more on shopping from time to time, I will surely find myself to other brands. Which brand is your favorite? I’d love to get some more inspiration, as I do know there are so many other great ones out there. For now, I wish you all a great rest of the day. I cannot wait for tomorrow, as it’s been raining most of the day today and finally it will brighten up tomorrow again. Time to get my sunnies out – once again!
