male mondays – shades for spring & summer

For men’s shades, this Spring/Summer season is all about tortoise shell (#1, 3, 4 & 5), a keyhole nose bridge (#5 & 6) and classic looks (#1-6).

Style Tips When Wearing Shades:

  • Ditch your Oakley’s (unless you’re competing in a triathlon, these are not okay)
  • Don’t wear sunglasses at night (unless you’re a filthy rich rapper or Bono or that guy who sang “Sunglasses at Night,” then it’s fine)
  • Don’t you dare wear your sunglasses on the back of your head! (unless you’re Guy Fieri, in which case you have bigger style fish to fry)

Sunglasses, like a nice watch, is something worth spending some extra dough on. Men shouldn’t wear many accessories, so might as well splurge a little, on the ones you do wear. Happy Shopping and bust out those shades baby!
