Some of the most common styles of modern sunglasses include retro designs such as the aviator, the cat-eye and the tea-shade. Another famous style is the wayfarer, which was popularized by the blues Brothers. Now worn by hipsters all around the world, wayfarers are made of plastic and rounded-square shaped frames. You might recognize them as worn by many celebrities such as Joaquin Phoenix in the film “I’m Still here” or comedian Zack Galifianakis in the “Hangover” franchise.
After you have decided on the type of sunglasses you want to buy, the next step is to research and compare before you buy sunglasses from merchants or at online stores.
Modern adaptations of classic and retro designs are available in most major fashion sites, along with vintage glasses. One great place to find the original versions of retro inspired modern sunglasses is in second-hand clothing shops. There, you may find modern recreations of vintage styles and have the chance to try them before you buy them. You can even get an authentic pair, if you are lucky. However, modern sunglasses with vintage designs have complete UV protection, making them worth considering.
