Styles of Chic Sunglasses You Need For Fall

It’s September, and it won’t take too long before the leaves start to change its colors. But before Autumn starts, let’s check out some of these chic sunglasses you should have in your wardrobe.

• Butterfly Sunglasses

Butterfly sunglasses have lenses with a distinct, butterfly wing shape, and a flattering silhouette for a stylish look. They’re great for softening a strong chin, thus works well on female who have a longer face-shape. Look at how Nicole Richie have pulled it off on last year’s Stella McCartney’s Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear Collection Show in Paris.

• Vintage-Inspired Sunglasses

Vintage sunglasses are the perfect wholesale sunglasses you should have in your inventory before autumn. The term "vintage" refers to any object, design, or style trend that is older than 25 years but younger than 100 years. Some styles of sunglasses are synonymous with particular decades of the 20th century, with many vintage styles enjoying second or even third turns at bat decades after they were first introduced. Vintage-Inspired sunglasses include wayfarers, aviators, round-frame, cat-eye shades and horn-rim sunglasses.

• Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Cat eye sunglasses are a feminized reworking of browline glasses. The cat eye design is quite angular and differs from the browline design in that the corners of the frame flare out where the arms connect with the ends of the browline bar. This gives the frames the shape of cats' eyes. Cat eye sunglasses were worn by women in the 1950s and 1960s and the frames often came in myriad colors. This style is especially popular with contemporary women seeking to accessorize vintage clothing pieces from the 1950s.

• Aviators

Aviators was characterized by teardrop-shaped lenses and delicate wire frames. Bausch and Lomb's Ray-Ban sunglasses were originally marketed as sporting equipment for golfers and fishermen, but Hollywood stars and World War II generals like the legendary Douglas MacArthur would make aviator sunglasses iconic. Generations after the first aviator sunglasses were brought to market, aviators continue to be a best-selling vintage style of sunglasses.

• Browline Sunglasses

The browline style is the successor to the horn-rim. What distinguished the browline frame is the asymmetrical nature of the frame. A thick bar of molded plastic or other material runs across the top of the frames at the browline. The bottom of the frames, the part that rests on the wearer's cheeks, is wire. Browline sunglasses are basically browline glasses with tinted lenses. Notable wearers of browline glasses included James Dean and Malcolm X.
