The Sunnies Men Should be Sporting this Summer

What do all frat boys, Vineyard Vine lovers, and Southern Tide wearers have in common? You will not catch them without a pair of Clubmasters or Wayfarers…  Seriously, trying to find one of those guys without a pair of these sunglasses is harder than every Where’s Waldo book combined!

Let’s get to the point: There are too many guys wearing the same Wayfarers and Clubmasters in this world. Congratulations, if you fit into this group, you all have far exceeded the maximum occupancy. This may sound crazy, but Ray-Ban actually makes more than two styles of sunglasses! Revolutionary, I know. I am a fan of the Clubmaster and Wayfarer styles; however, not when every guy I meet in the summer is wearing a pair, and I can no longer tell them apart because I already forgot their name 2 seconds into our conversation. (whoops)

Ray-Ban sunglasses are all the rage with the frat boys, and I don’t blame them. I just have one simple request: I would like to see guys branch out a bit more from the classic Clubmaster; is that too much to ask??

Sunglasses are an investment, so it is important to get a style that you really like in a color that will fit into your wardrobe.  There is always the option of picking up some $20 trendy sunnies (don’t get me wrong, I do this sometimes too), but these are the kind of sunnies you buy to lose or to try a new look that you’re a little iffy on. So for clueless boys out there who think that there’s only one brand of sunglasses to buy (Ray-Ban), let’s broaden the horizons a little bit.

I am continuing to follow my passion of fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles, and plan to graduate December of 2018. I have big dreams of making my mark on the fashion industry. Eventually I hope my career allows me to live in Manhattan working in the industry that I love, and giving me the opportunity to travel the world for fashion weeks and other fashion related ventures.
