How To Create A Fashion Statement with Sunglasses

Posted on July 29, 2016 by Ariel Whitmore | 0 comments

 

When it comes to style, your sunglasses should NOT be one of the last things on your mind. Besides the many health benefits they provide, sunnies have the power to spice up any wardrobe.

With the wide range of sunglasses out there, it's not always an easy task when it comes to selecting the best fashion statement you want to make.

Shauna (shown above) seems to have found the perfect outfit to sport our "Marquee" bifocal sunglasses. For those who need a bit of inspiration we have a few ways to help guide you in the right direction:

Dress for Your Mood

As long as it doesn't clash with your skin tone, choosing a style of frames to express your mood is one way to show everyone how fashion savvy you really are. Feeling flirty and sassy? Choose frames with polka dots or detailed embellishments, such as our "Sea Castle" sunglasses (shown left), for that extra pizazz. Sunglasses with sharp edges, oversized frames, or cutout designs are great for those who are in the daring and adventurous mood.
Maybe you're feeling a bit reserved? Sporting the classic wayfarer or aviator shaped frame, like the youngster below, is a must.
 

Choose a Color to Compliment Your Wardrobe

Choosing the appropriate color is KEY when it comes to making a fashion statement with sunglasses. Remember, you want to make a bold statement but at the same time you don't want to over do the whole "fashion forward aesthetic." Multicolored sunglasses are always a favorite, the arms of the frame may be a shade of blue while the face of the frames are green. This is a great way to increase your wardrobe choices without compromising your style.

Wearing a pair of sunglasses that is the same color as a piece of your clothing is a great way to make a statement. Making your entire outfit blue isn't always suggested. If you match blue sunglasses to blue shoes, or blue accented shoes, the whole outfit comes together in a seemingly effortless way.

Patters are unique and can add that extra pop of fun to anyones wardrobe ensemble, but can be tricky. We're not here to tell you how to live your life, so if wearing stripes and polka dots is your cup of tea then by all means, go for it. We adore matching checkered sunglasses with checkered shirts, but to leave a not so distracting vibe we recommend pairing pattern sunglasses with solid colored clothing. Even if you doubt your selection try to remember that confidence is key.
 
 Your Plans


Still stuck on how to create a fashion statement with sunglasses? Nothing wrong with taking your plans for the day into consideration. Are your new sunglasses going to be for work or play? Fancy or backyard casual events? With this mindset and amount of preparedness others won’t help but notice how detail oriented you are.

Outdoor settings are pretty simple to make your style stand out. Think fun colors, sporty, and funky styles. Can’t go wrong with take chances on something that you wouldn’t normally wear. The most important thing is to have fun with it.


Maybe you need sunglasses for a not so casual occasion. Frames with modern twists are a great way how to show off your inner fashionista without being too wacky.

For women we recommend styles such as our “Jolie’s”. The pointed gold corners and zig zag arms are simple additions to the classic cat eye shape frames

Size and Shape

Making a fashion statement based on the size and shape of sunglasses is a great way to change up your look and grab attention. Bold or subtle? When done correctly, subtle sunglasses can make just as much of a lasting impression as anything else. Wearing a design/pattern packed outfit and don’t want to draw too much attention away from your staple piece? Slim and simple designed frames are a classic way to pull your entire look  together. Minor decorative embellishments are a great way to incorporate style without over powering your face or anything else you may be wearing.


Bold sunglasses have an obvious advantage in this department. No one will be able to miss the style you’re sporting when choosing frames that are "large and in charge.” Pairing larger frames with patterned outfits, like Claudia did with our "Crystal Queen," is a great way to make your personality come to life.
        
The shape of your sunglasses is just as important when trying to create that perfect tone for your ensemble. Leaning more towards a classic or retro vibe? Try sunglasses with an aviator or a round frame such as our "Pop Art" (shown above). Heart shaped sunglasses are sexy, big and playful. Square sunglasses tend to be more studious and modern. 

Lenses

Smoke, amber, mirror, pink, green, blue....with the endless amount of colors available, who says you can't make a fashion statement with sunglasses based on the color of the lenses? Sure, going with classic colored lenses are beneficial for the majority of your outfits...but why settle for average? Just that extra pop of color will bring the attention right where it's needed.

Lens Fashion Statement

Dwayne Wade is absolutely right, “Fashion’s about taking chances, it’s about taking risks, and just doing it the way you feel comfortable doing it. If you do that, people will respect it more.” So go ahead and rock those edgy sunglasses to a fancy event, or show off those over the top sunglasses for casual plans, to make that lasting impression.

Lens Tint Guide for Sports Sunglasses

Posted on May 27, 2016 by Lisa Carnes | 0 comments

When purchasing sports sunglasses for the golf course, racquetball court or the the ski slopes, the one main consideration for improving your visual performance is lens tint. The color of the lens of your sunglasses is important for improving visual clarity while protecting your eyes from injury. The best tint for sport sunglasses varies depending on weather and lighting conditions. For example, the best sunglasses lens tint for playing Frisbee on a sunny day at the beach will be too dark for hitting a golf ball on an overcast or partly cloudy day. Lens color is a personal choice and doesn't affect how well sunglass lenses protect your eyes from UV light. Gray and brown are popular because they distort color perception the least. So be sure that the sunglasses, (including clear) have 100% UVA UVB coating for the best protection for your eyes. If you will be using your glasses for a sport which is near water or snow or reflective surfaces, polarization will give your eyes additional protection from glare.

If you participate in several sports or in a variety of lighting conditions, consider purchasing several sport sunglasses with different lens tints. You can also get sport sunglass frames which have interchangeable lenses, which are great for a variety of lighting and weather conditions.

Sports and safety lenses are made of impact-resistant poly-carbonate to protect eyes from fast-moving objects. Poly-carbonate also has built-in UV protection. Untreated poly-carbonate lenses, however, can easily become scratched. For this reason, virtually all poly-carbonate lenses for eyeglasses and sports eyewear include a scratch-resistant coating on both the front and back surface for added durability. Regular eyeglass frames are not rated for use as safety glasses and typically don't provide the type of eye protection needed for sports. DO NOT play sports while wearing an eyeglass frame that is not rated for sports eyewear! It is dangerous and can result in a serious eye injury if the frame breaks.

Five Places Men Need Bifocal Sunglasses

Posted on May 08, 2016 by Lisa Carnes | 0 comments

DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!!!

Hey guys, when you wear your sunglasses do you have your reading glasses strung around your neck, or worse yet, in your pocket? Do you need readers to see who’s calling on your cell phone or to read the sports program at the game? Do you find yourself constantly switching back and forth between your sunglasses and your reading glasses? What a hassle! You need bifocal sunglasses. Men’s bifocal sunglasses are reading glasses and sunglasses combined into one. The top portion are regular sunglasses with small bifocal lenses at the bottom so that you can see the fine print when you need to. All with one pair of glasses.

Here are five places you will find that bi-focal sunglasses are indispensable. And gentlemen, be honest. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar to you?

  1. AT THE GOLF COURSE

You’re on the 14th green wearing your sunglasses, you take a swing, and OMG you hit the ball right into the hole for your very first hole in one!!! How exciting for you. You grab your scorecard, but OH NO, you have to squint to see the page… where are those darn readers when you need them? Oh, now you remember you left them back in the car. You have to ask your buddy to write down your score for you. How embarrassing. This would never happen if you had been wearing your bi-focal sunglasses.

  1. ON THE BOAT

Another beautiful day out on the lake. The weather is perfect .You can’t wait to drop a line in the water. You reach into the can of worms and grab a big fat wiggler, but when you go to put him on the hook you stab yourself instead. Dang it! You spend most of the day trying to hook the worm instead of the fish. If only you’d been wearing your polarized bi-focal sunglasses you would have caught the big one by now.

  1. AT THE GAME

It’s a beautiful day to go to the ball game, or the race track, or your favorite sports venue. You grab a seat and get ready to enjoy reading the full-color premium program you just splurged 10 bucks for on the way in. You take off your sunglasses and begin to fumble around looking for your reading glasses and in the process you knock your beer right into your lap and all over the brand-new program! Why didn’t you wear your sun readers??? You could have watched all the action and read the program with one pair of glasses.

  1. WORKING OUTSIDE

You’re finally ready to build that addition on the back patio. You’ve got all your tools ready, you’ve picked up the lumber and the construction plans and you’re ready to go to work. You grab a tape measure and then you realize you left your readers back in the house. You go back in and get them but the glare from the sun is now in your eyes and you and you hope you got the measurement right. You grab a hammer and a nail and bang your finger instead! Oh that hurts. Next time better wear some reading sunglasses.

  1. CHILLAXIN'

You’ve waited all year for this vacation and it’s finally here. You can’t wait to get down to the beach with that book that you been dying to read. You slather on the suntan lotion, put on your reading glasses and open the book, but the sun is reflecting off the page so brightly you have switch back to your sunglasses. Now you can’t read a word. You get a brilliant idea. You slip on your reading glasses and then slyly put your sunglasses right on top of them, hoping no one will notice. It’s pretty uncomfortable wearing two pairs of glasses at once, but at least you can read your book now. You hear laughter and look up as two cute girls pass by. They’re smiling. And whispering. And, OH NO, they’re pointing…. at You! This would never of happened if only…well you get the picture.

COOL GUYS WEAR BIFOCAL SUNGLASSES

By now you get the idea; bifocal sun readers for men are extremely handy for guys who spend a lot of time outdoors. Another benefit is that they are very youthful as well. The reading lenses on most of today’s bi-focal sunglasses are practically invisible so no one but you will know you are wearing reading glasses. Best of all, you’ll never have to wear two pairs of glasses again!

Secret Revealed - How To save A Bundle On Prescription Glasses

Posted on February 25, 2016 by Lisa Carnes | 0 comments

matterhorn prescription eyeglasses frames

    men's quality prescription glasses frames

How much did you pay for your last pair of optical quality frames? If you're like most people, you probably spent $300, $400, maybe even $500 or more. There is a reason you will always pay top dollar to purchase frames at an optical store or an optometrist. It's a simple fact of math. Stores and doctor's offices have to pay a mortgage or a lease every month month for the building. They have a huge electrical bill. They have to pay a staff. They have to make a huge mark-up just to pay the monthly expenses.  

 

But stop! Aloha Eyes is about to reveal a sweet little secret how you can save hundreds of dollars on your next pair of prescription eye glass frames. Shopping for your next pair of glasses online is easy and is the best way to get the same prescription quality frames at a fraction of the cost.  Here's how.

Step One: Determine your frame size. You may never have noticed it before, but all prescription eyewear frames have three little numbers usually on the temples (arms) and possibly on the bridge or on the ear piece.

These numbers indicate the frame's dimensions. Take a look at the frames that you are currently wearing to see what size they are.

There can be quite a few different kinds of numbers and markings inside your frame, and not all of them are relevant to the size. The eye size and bridge size are often located next to one another, sometimes separated by a square box icon. The temple size may immediately follow those two sets of numbers, or have some other info in between.

Eye Size: a two-digit number in the 40 - 62 range

Bridge Size: a two-digit number in the 14 - 24 range

Temple size: a three-digit number in the 120 - 150 range

Step Two:  You'll need a copy of your most recent prescription from your optometrist. If you don't have it, don't worry. Simply ask your eye doctor to email a copy to you. If it has been over year since you visited your eye doctor, or if your current eyeglasses don't seem to be helping your vision as well as when you first purchased them, you should make an appointment to get your eyes examined before investing money on outdated prescription lenses.

Step Three: Go online and make a search for "prescription quality eyeglass frames." You will be amazed at the fabulous selection frames in a huge variety of frame styles, colors and materials; way more than any one optician or optical store could possibly hope to carry. If you like to earn loyalty points and rewards, AlohaEyes.com has a nice selection of extremely affordable rx-able frames priced between $24.88 and $67.99. Select men's or women's "prescription eyewear frames" from the drop down menu and find a pair you like which are similar to the size discussed above. If you are on a strict budget, it is best to look for a neutral color and shape that you can wear every day. With the money you are going to save you could choose a second or even third pair in your favorite color, or have one pair of frames tinted for wearing in the sun. 

Step Four: Your new frames have arrived and you can't wait to wear them. But first you need to add your prescription lenses! So grab that prescription (from step two) and your fabulous new glasses and run down to down to your local discount optical store. Wal-Mart and Sam's Club offer super low prices to add your prescription lenses to any optical frames and you do not even have to be a member! In just a few days you'll be looking good and feeling great about the money still in your pocket.

If you're concerned about ordering glasses online without trying them on, no worries! You do not want toPurchase from a company which also puts the lens in before you can try on the glasses you might have a problem. So look for a online store that allows you to try out the frames first. This also gives you to opportunity to shop around for the best lens price once you've found that perfect look.

At AlohaEyes.com purchasing optical frames is risk free because we always offer Free Shipping and Free Returns and Exchanges. Click Here to see all of Aloha Eyes prescription frames!
