Shop Shield Sunglasses
When it comes to sunglasses, we think we’ve seen it all, from the smallest of the small shades, to the out of this world geometric shapes. Whatever style you’re trying to emulate you can be guaranteed that a pair of sunglasses will exist for the vibe.
So, if the future is calling you, then a pair of shield sunglasses is how you’re going to up the ante and achieve this look.
Agents of Shield
We all know oversized sunglasses have been a trend since the 1960s, but now it’s time to take this trend back to the future.
Incorporating futuristic elements borrowed from the matrix inspired skinny sunnies we’ve seen becoming popular over the last few years, shield sunglasses usually feature one continuous lens that spans the entire distance of the sunglasses, in the space where two lenses would normally sit, creating this shield effect.
The charm of this eye-catching design is that there is an air of mystery around who the wearer of these frames could be. And because of this extreme coverage, it’s no wonder this style has become a favourite among the A-list crowd.
Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Victoria Beckham have been spotted in the shield sunnies trend. With JLo going for a real sci-fi opulent vibe, in a mirrored lens style. While Victoria Beckham stuck to her Posh Spice roots in a dark framed and ombre lensed pair. Giving us an insight into the true versatility of these sunglasses.
But the popularity of these shields in the bright lights of Hollywood doesn’t end there. The Kardashian Klan and many off duty models have all been spotted accessorising with a pair of shields, just showing us that when it comes to sunnies, drama is what it’s all about.
Shields & Sports
Besides being trendy and fashionable, shield sunglasses are popular sport sunglasses prized for their unparalleled field of vision, lightness, and easy on and off design and usage. Most of these either only have the frame material at the temple, or occasionally on top of the frame. There is usually negligible frame material along the bottom of the frame as that typically inhibits a maximum field of vision. This is how shield lenses achieve the widest field of vision possible.
For the sporting elite among us, shield sunglasses in a variety of lens colours can enhance sight and overall performance. For the skiers, yellow or orange lenses provide a contrast to the environment of the stark white snow, while amber, rose and red lenses work well in sunny or partly cloudy conditions.
Shield sunglasses have the benefit of not only providing a wide visual scope but also have the added benefit of covering a larger part of your face, and therefore adding much needed protection to the delicate skin around your eyes, so whether you’re after a pair for sports performance, to be fashion forward, you will have maximum protection.
