Get Active in Style: Goggles + Sunnies for Outdoor Winter Sports

Can you believe the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony is just two days away? We’ve waited a long time for this – OK, just four years, but we’ll gladly take any opportunity to watch our favorite athletes compete, and cheer on the great U.S.A. It’s also a wonderful excuse to ramp up our own outdoor gear outfits with new shades and goggles that will not only keep us lookin’ good but also protect our peepers from harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays and flying debris that may hit us as we’re flying down a mountain.

The new cold season brings hot new styles of sporty wraparound profiles, modified rectangular shapes, and chic aviator-inspired and round silhouettes. Tinted and flash lenses up the ante in goggles and shades alike, while bright pops of greens, oranges, blues, yellows and pinks play off whites and translucents. Removable temple shields and adjustable straps are fashionable and functional details, as sleek color-blocking, metal accents and keyhole bridges bring all the style. Check ‘em out, below.
