  2. Sunglasses help you see better if it’s too bright.
  3. Shades also help prevent symptoms of exhaustion after being outside for long hours.
  4. Sunglasses are not only good for your eyes, but easy to buy. Today, you can buy sunglasses at the touch of a click, as most sunglasses companies sell them online.
  5. Shades compliment your personality and enhance the way you look, no matter what age you are.
  6. We tend to wear sunglasses to protect our eyes from the sun, but also as a fashion statement or an homage to our icons. And we’re not even talking about Elvis impersonators.

  7. Tom Cruise’s character in Top Gun, helped popularize Ray-Ban Aviators. Today, Aviator Sunglasses are still stylish and a definitive best-seller. They bring out masculinity and boldness in men and are very popular among women.
  8. And who said New York – or for that matter, urban – intellectuals couldn’t be stylish? Woody Allen’s character Annie Hall (shot in one of the most memorable scenes of Allen’s masterpiece¬†wearing seventies women sunglasses) gave way to generations of urban-intellectual yet always fashion-conscious women.
  9. Reservoir Dogs. Tarantino’s cult classic starring Harvey Keitel as Mr. White, helped perpetuate the bad-guy-in-sunglasses mythology. Well, at least on the big screen.
  10. Have you seen the cult b-movie They Live? Apparently sunglasses help you see the alien side of others.
  11. By the way, you can’t escape The Matrix, or even work for The Matrix without a nice pair of shades.
