The Ray-Ban 4147 sunglasses are a Ray-Ban best seller. They’re also sometimes referred to as Ray-Ban Boyfriend sunglasses. But most of all, they’re a style to wear over and over again with any outfit, at any event. These are a great feminine version of a classic Ray-Ban style shape in our opinion. The top of the design is straight with a squared-off end piece. This part is very Ray-Ban, a design we see in many many styles, most notably, the Wayfarer.
However, the bottom of the lens drops lower than most Ray-Ban styles with a soft rounded look. This allows for a soft feminine look. Ray-Ban logos are placed on each temple and printed on the lens. An RB etching features on the other lens. All perfect for brand recognition to show off your Ray-Ban pride.
Open up your views with these Oakley Sunglasses. These sunglasses are really for those wanting full sun protection and open views of the world, not forgetting, these are for the sporty among us too. Oakley is the king of sports eyewear and these are a great example. The slimline and sculpted design is techy, sporty and perfectly streamlined for running, cycling and normal life.
The design of these sunglasses is a slim rectangular shape with an increased wrap. The lenses curve more than most allowing for great protection of your eye. All while allowing more views at the periphery. The temples are tall too near the lens to give more protection from light seepage.
These Michael Kors sunglasses are as beautiful as the Florida Island, Sanibel. Very aptly named. The lenses remind us of butterfly wings, making these a delicate design. The gold temples, rims and bridge add a sense of premium feel. Whereas the mirrored lenses add a strong fashionable feel.
We love how the rose gold frame and the lens contrast in this design. What we love more is how the lens looks to be placed on top of the frame rather than in the rims. A design feature not seen much, but one that is very contemporary and adds something different.
Regular readers will probably be bored with how much we talk about Persol glasses in our reviews. Well, sorry to you if you are one of them, but we are passionate about the brand. This month we chose the Persol 3012v glasses. These have a slightly thicker frame and temples than most Persol glasses. Add a rectangular shape and we would align these with more of an older audience.
The Meflecto system is of course included in the design to give that added bit of comfort. However, what is apparent in this design is the Persol arrow. This looks a lot thicker on the frame. And, quite frankly, we think it is great. This creates more of an eye pulling design feature that we think is really stylish.
Miu Miu designs are always a little more extravagant than others. These are no different, they’re an amazing design that if you can pull them off with your style and personality, we 100% encourage you to. The shapes and lines within the design are so intriguing and captivating. Life is too short for boring glasses!
The main eye-catching part of the design is the top of the rim. The added, almost translucent plastic addition adds so much to the frame. We love the idea of this. The rawness of the screws too really juxtapose the sleek nature of the rest of the frame. A real winner in our eyes.
Versace bring premium designs to a whole new level time after time. These Versace glasses show that perfectly. These are a really premium and high-end design. Many features appeal to us with these Greca Glasses. Mainly, the stark semi-rimless design. This gives us a mature and sophisticated vibe.
The thicker rims and thin lens allows the frame to really pop and be a focal point of the design. Our favourite part is the metal detailing running along the design. This pattern is undeniably Versace, a repeat shape we have seen for years on Versace clothes and accessories. The way this appears in the bridge is intriguing and unexpected. Adding something a little special that we cannot get enough of.
