With June 27 being National Sunglasses Day, it’s only fitting we introduce you to our favorite frames to shade our eyes from the sun. The top three sunglasses brands that made our cut: Warby Parker, Crap Eyewear, and Rumba.
While we’re all major Warby Parker frame fans, many of us around the office were surprised by the wide spectrum of sunglasses that go from classy tortoise to funky retro. Nervous about ordering sunglasses online without trying them on? Fear not. Warby Parker allows shoppers to pick out five different styles, which they can receive in the mail to try on before committing to a pair.
As for our second brand, we introduce to you Crap Eyewear — the new “it” shades of the summer. Crap Eyewear’s headquarters are in laid-back, cool Venice, Calif., and the designs are influenced by the California surfer and skateboarder lifestyle. You may have seen these vintage-looking Kurt Cobain-style shades floating around on your Explore page in Instagram. Prepare to see many more in the coming months on different A-listers’ Instagrams, since they are stylish, chic, grungy, and cool — perfect for upping your selfie game.
Last but not least, for the adventurous festivalgoer, electronic-dance-music “EDM”-lover, and DJ follower: There’s Rumba Spring Sunglasses. These are low in price, so you won’t be devastated if they fall off at a show. But they’re also cool-looking, with their monotone, minimal design. Surprisingly, you wouldn’t expect the yellow shade, “Sunshine,” to block the sun, but it does, adding a fun tint of yellow to your world without having to squint while watching the show.
