National Sunglasses Day: Protect Your Peepers in Shady Style

Next Tuesday marks one of our favorite days of the year. That’s right – June 27th is National Sunglasses Day and for the fourth year, we’re celebrating in shady style! This commemorative date is the perfect opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of poppin’ on stylish shades as they head out the door. After all, American adults report experiencing trouble seeing, sunburnt eyes or eyelids, irritated eyes, red or swollen eyes, wrinkles around the eyes and even cancer on or around the eyes after prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. And, according to The Vision Council, while nearly 75 percent of Americans are concerned about these potential side effects of UV eye exposure, only about 21 percent say they always wear sunglasses. But with so many awesome styles available, there’s no reason to not wear sunnies every time you step outside, no matter if it’s cold or hot, sunny or cloudy, summer or winter. Guys and gals alike can indulge in eye-catching colors, unexpected flash and tinted lenses, fun details, pops of patterns and so much more – there’s a style fit for everyone! We rounded up a few of our favorite frames for you to check out, below. Make sure you grab a pair and join in on the National Sunglasses Day hoopla by posting a #SunglassSelfie on social media next Tuesday using #NationalSunglassesDay.
