Trending Styles: Put others in the shade with the best summer sunglasses

Take it easy on the eyes with these stylish sunglasses from Littlewoods Ireland.


Take it easy on the eyes with these stylish sunglasses from Littlewoods Ireland.

Once upon a time Irish men didn’t really do sunglasses preferring to either squint into the sun or stay indoors. Thankfully those days are long gone and many of us make lots of use of our sunglasses, winter and summer.

Not only do they look good, but protecting your eyes from harmful rays like UVA, UVB and UVC is not a bad idea. With summer now in full swing now is a time when many of us might be thinking of getting a new pair of shades and Littlewoods Ireland have got you covered, no matter what your budget, style or need is.

Let’s start with a classic, the aviator. Designed for pilots and now worn by everybody this classic shape and style suits nearly every face shape and won’t look out of place on the walk into work or out in the beer garden for a few after work. There is the gunmetal aviator for just €12, which is briliant value for such a stylish looking set of shades.

Or, if you want to treat yourself, these aviators by Carrera with subtle gold trim will add a real touch of class to your summer look.

Aside from Aviators the other big look this summer is the Wayfarer. Again we have two great options for you. The first is available for just €12 in two colours. We’ve chosen teal above but red is also available.

If you have a few more quid to spend, then a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs Wayfarers are a must. Stylish 1950’s design, brown patterned frames and black arms will make a real statement.

And, if you need some sunnies for more active pursuits than lying on the beach, then these Oakleys are your only man. With increased grip and a very high level of protection from the sun’s rays, these are the ones that will look after you whether you are on a mountain bike or abseiling down a cliff.

Those are a few great options to get the latest styles into your wardrobe, but there’s plenty more available from our mates over at Littlewoods Ireland who have all the latest trends at great prices.
