Summer has officially arrived!
But now that Mother Nature has decided to turn up the thermostat (and the fun), I have been thinking more and more about my eyes, specifically what I want to don this summer to protect them while looking… cool.
And right now, you can save on a new pair at Both Sunglass Hut and Solstice Sunglasses at The Streets at Southpoint are having terrific sales.

To help you out, I am offering my official GURU sunglass shopping tips:
GURU SUNGLASSES TIP #1: Do NOT buy sunglasses online without trying them on first. These go on your face. People will see them and you want to look great!
GURU SUNGLASSES TIP #2: Most brands can accommodate a Rx lens. PERFECT for people who can’t wear contacts!
GURU SUNGLASSES TIP #3: Get a brand that works for YOU, not because of the brand! Again, get a style that makes you look great!
Smith Optics knows how to protect your eyes from the summer sun. After all, they’re based in SUN VALLEY, Idaho home to movie stars and ski slopes. This outdoor-themed company also makes some of my favorite shades for both the athletic and style conscious among us. And I just love a pair of black wrap-around sunglasses.
Next up, we have Versace with a very chic wire framed pair. I like a style that is confident but understated like these. And let’s face it, Versace knows style!
Last from Sunglass Hut, I selected some shades from Gargoyles. This is a brand that’s been around for a while, but I still rarely see anyone wearing them. Which for me is a plus- you get a bit of exclusivity! I like how these have the lok of a classic aviator style, but just more modern.
Next, Solstice Sunglass Boutique!
First up, it’s one of the most timeless sunglass styles of all time, worn by everyone form JFK to Tom Cruise: Ray-Ban’s Wayfarer. But we all know about the classic black, so ditch the herd and step out in the understated and original tortoise style. You still get the timeless look, while being a little unique.
Another classic brand that’s been around forever, but few people seem to wear, is Carrera. Ladies get a little pop of color with these purple shades, done in a very classic retro style, almost reminiscent of the Wayfarers. I really like these! Plus, the polarized lenses take care of glare form the bright sun.
Lastly from Solstice Sunglasses, I selected what are considered to be the ultimate in celebrity, high-fashion style from Prada. These oversized black sunglasses showcase a style that has been very popular for a few years, but show no signs of slowing down!
Which pair do you like? Let me know your thoughts and if I can help suggest some fresh styles for you!
