Black shades: Now the black shades seem to be the most popular, being that the lenses shadow out the sun and keep the eyes hidden. The black goes great with darker colors and brings out the facial structure depending on which style is worn.
Brown shades: The brown is a neutral shade and has lighter lenses than the black. With this tone it plays as the “sexy” showing a bit of the eye but not enough to read through to the soul. This tone looks great with a nice casual summer get up or a classy suit.
Classic Aviator Silver: You may have seen Tom Cruise wearing a pair of these in his 80’s hit movie Top Gun. These shades are the classic look that also shows character and confidence. The look can compliment any color scheme and looks best in the winter if worn with the right jacket to compliment.
