Summer is here! And not a moment too soon. It seems 2020 is full of nothing but doom and gloom. From disease to economic downturn to riots. Is there no end to the madness? Perhaps not, but there is, at least, an escape from the madness. It’s called going outside to enjoy some recreation under beautiful, sunny skies.
Naturally, as you pack your gear and hit the road for the beach, a picnic, or hike, you want to look your best. After all, they don’t call it a “beach body” for no reason! Aside from choosing the right apparel, you’ll also want to be very particular in your accessories. Today, let’s look at the super summer accessory called SUNGLASSES.
Believe it or not, there are fashion rules and faux pas for donning your cool shades. Here are some of them:
1. Keep them clean
Sunglasses (and all glasses) are notorious for gathering grime and dirt. Why? I’m not sure. It probably has something to do with the fact that we’re touching them with our hands entirely too much. That being said, be sure to keep your sunglasses clean by using a scratch-free cloth. The best way to keep them clean during your outing is to keep them on your face. And try not to use them as a hair accessory. This only adds to the grimy nastiness on sunglasses.
2. Make sure they match your personality and style
Are you the kind of person that can get away with aviator sunglasses? If you look the part, then go for it. But, if not, then perhaps you should try for something else. The same goes with Elton John style glasses and every other style! Dress according to who you are. It will make you more comfortable, and will make everyone else around you more comfortable!
3. Don’t wear them indoors
Wearing sunglasses indoors because they look good on you outdoors makes as much sense as wearing pajamas outdoors that make you look good indoors. Just don’t do it.
4. Don’t wear them at night
This is more of a safety guideline than a style tip. However, it’s surprising how many people insist on wearing their sunglasses at all hours of the day AND NIGHT. It’s one thing if you simply forget to take them off because the sun is slowly dipping beyond the horizon. But, once you realize it TRULY IS DARK, take them off!
Seriously, though. Don’t despair this year. Things can and will get better. In the meantime, enjoy a little sunshine by going outdoors.
