The Forgotten Accessory Your Winter Outfit Needs

Share

Fact: sunglasses aren’t just for beach days and BBQs. Shielding your eyes during the winter season is crucial as the sun lies lower in the sky, which can cause heavier UV exposure. That said, not all sunglasses feel right with winter’s rich colors and sumptuous layers. Look for heavier, more statement-making frames in cool, sophisticated colors. Below, a few favorites for these frosty months ahead.
