2013 Style – Latest Trends in Designer Sunglasses for Men
Last year Chopard unveiled the world’s most expensive Sunglasses, sparking debate about where the leading designers will eyewear fashion in 2013.
Thankfully we don’t all have to fork out over $408,000 (about £268,000) for a decent pair of designer shades. The big names like Ray-Ban and Oakley are keeping shelves stocked with high-end frames without straying down a path that only the super-rich can tread.
With this in mind, we’ve put together our recommendations for the most bang-on-trend models with prices that don’t rival the average three-bedroom house.
Ray-Ban’s classic design is often imitated but in truth, the pretenders to the Aviator-style throne rarely come close to achieving the credibility of the original.
The teardrop lenses of the RB3025 have something of the rock-star about them that transcends trends and fad fashion, hence the reason that the sunglasses designed for US military pilots in 1937 are fast-approaching their 80th year of cool.
These frames normally retail around the £125 mark and for that extra level of individuality, have yours professionally fitted. Most opticians won’t charge for this.
Oakley Frogskins OO9013
The 80s style comeback (who would have thought it?) has continued into 2013 and Oakley have succeeded in capturing retro cool without pandering to hipster irony.
Robert Downey Jr, Nicole Ritchie and other celebs have been spotted sporting these specs, which have won’t be around forever. Oakley have confirmed that many designs are limited edition, so grab a pair now or risk waiting another 30 years for them to reappear in stores.
Frames and lenses are both available in a variety of colours and these particular ‘Froggies’ come in at around £95 (RRP).
Oakley Jupiter Squared
Futuristic designs aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but these bold sunglasses are a relative bargain for the fearless fashionista, with an RRP of £115.
Wearing Jupiters screams ‘attitude’ but choosing the woodgrain frames is guaranteed to attract instant kudos from those in the know. The wooden design comes at a price but if you have the extra budget, they pay for themselves in respect from fellow style gurus.
