A few weeks ago I wrote about Perfect Glasses, a great destination to find a wide range of prescription glasses and sunglasses at affordable, discount prices. (You can find that original article here). Today I am reviewing a pair of the sunglasses from the site, because all the sunglass designs also be designed with plain glass as well as prescription lenses. The glasses I chose from the site were the Tiger design that currently have 50% off with the code PAYHALF.
The Tiger glasses are a cute, retro design with an tortoiseshell print frame that screams 1950s poolside glamour. Very lightweight in design, these are the perfect glasses for those who think sunglasses are not for them due to heavy frames, or pain caused across the bridge or side of the nose. The shaped arms are elegant in that they are not too thick, again the lightness of the material means that these sit comfortably behind the ear, without rubbing or tightness.
The glasses have tinted lenses, but can also come with Single vision, Bifocals and Multifocal lenses, making these suitable even if you have issues with your eyesight. A scratch resistant coating is also a great fixture, especially if, like me, you are prone to leaving your sunglasses lying around the house, or just throwing them into your bag. In addition to the coating, the glasses come with a lovely, sturdy glass case and a microfibre cloth for cleaning purposes.
I love the retro feel of these glasses that the tortoiseshell frame gives them, it is not the cats eye style of the 1950s, but they definitely have a movie queen aura to them. I styled my glasses 1970s style, with a midi skirt and plain white t-shirt top, brown vintage platforms and red lipstick. This was a relaxed daytime look, but as we move into Summer, and evening occasions that are spent outside, I can see the glasses looking very glam teamed with a little black shift dress, or a pretty summer sundress. Similarly, the light frames mean that these will take up no room at all in your hand luggage when I head off to my summer holidays, and will look airport chic teamed with cool cottons when I jet off to Cyprus next month.
If you have yet to choose your summer sunnies, it is definitely worth taking a look at Perfect Glasses. Their current summer discount means you can get 50% off sunglasses, which is a brilliant saving, and the choice of so many different types of frames, and lenses, mean that you should be able to find something for both your needs and aesthetic taste.
