There are so many different types of sunglasses out there that sometimes it can be quite difficult to identify and find the ones you like. So here is a resourceful guide to letting you in on the names of the different kinds of sunglasses.
The wayfarer sunglasses are one of my favorite. It has slightly boxy and super thick frames. Almost anyone can wear these, men, women, boy, or girl, and any type of facial structure will look good in it. These frames are even used for the large nerdy glasses you see on the typical nerd look.
You see how the frames are the same as the wayfarer glasses? They’re the same frames except the nerdy glasses have clear lenses.
Sometimes you’ll even see companies make their own cheap wayfarer sunglasses and pass them out to people for advertising and promotion of their brand.
Novelty SunglassesThese sunglasses can be seen in many different parties; New Year’s, Fourth of July, and Halloween. There are also novelty glasses that feature TV characters and many other humorous characters.
Clubmaster Style Sunglasses
These glasses have a thick brow-line frame and extra rims on the bottom. They look similar to the aviator frames except that these have a large top frame. It gives a retro-style effect to the wearer.
Cateye SunglassesThese sunglasses have a shape similar to that of a cateye. Like the oversized sunglasses, the cateye frames can be seen on many celebrities. This also gives a sort of retro styled look.
Aviator SunglassesLast but not least, we have the aviator sunglasses. One of the most popularly worn sunglasses out there. It has a metal frame and sometimes with smoky lenses. The large lenses were to block out the sun from all angles, which was why the pilots wore them back then. Looks good on everyone.
