Whose Sunglasses are Hot?

Kenneth Cole offers a collection of designer sunglasses for women and unisex in contemporary styles. Like the clothes – sleek, chic and citified – you’ll see sleek shapes with his glasses.

Gucci has an essence of pure luxury within their brand. With up-to-the-minute trends and classics from black movie star shades to their signature aviator styles, you can’t go wrong with Gucci.

As stated earlier, you’ll pay more for designer sunglasses. But, as the old adage states, you get what you pay for. You really get great quality when you pay more; the craftsmanship is definitely of a higher stature than the cheaper counterparts. With great care of these sunglasses, you could have them for several years. Some great tips are to clean them with a light cloth (don’t add any water or other cleaning astringent), keep them in their case when they aren’t in use and avoid sitting on them!

You’ll find designer sunglasses at department stores, exclusive boutiques or optical stores. And, when looking for sunglasses, find frames that fit your face shape and your style.
