We’re pretty sure you know the value of a good pair of sunglasses, right? They protect your peepers from harmful UV rays and keep you guarded against intense brightness and uncomfortable light. Simple! While this is most definitely true of sunglasses and their role in your life, they do something else for you, too.  

Sunglasses define your style and tell the people around you much more about the kind of person you are than you think. Whether you prefer a round, tapered frame or a polarized, reflective one, someone can learn a lot about a person by the kind of sunglasses they sport on the regular. 

So, what do your sunglasses say about you? And which ones are the most revealing of personality? Well, we’ve gone ahead and listed a few examples of these “tell-tale” sunglasses and what they could possibly say about you.  

Let’s dive in! 

Aviators: Exudes Authority & Confidence 

If you’ve ever worn a decent pair of aviators, you’re probably grinning and nodding at the title of this paragraph. When you don a pair of these sunglasses, you’ll command a respect and ooze a kind of confidence that won’t be matched by any other spectacle you wear.  

They were first issued to military pilots, which gives them all the credibility they need! All it takes is a simple pair of Versace frames to add a sense of authority to any look.  

Polarized & Tinted: Stylish & Sporty Combined 

We’re talking Oakley Frogskins kind of tinted. If you’re putting a pair of these on every day, you’re most probably not sitting in boardroom meetings all day. Odds are, you’re always ready for an adventure, especially in the sun (hence the ultra-protective polarized lenses).  

The tinted lenses add fun and flavour to a stylish and athletic look that’s hard to match! 

Rounded Frames: Cool, Calm, & Collected 

While a pair of aviators may foster more of an in-your-face kind of authority and confidence, a rounded frame gives off a much more subtle air of cool and calm while still providing you with a style that says, “I know who I am and I know what I like”. 

This kind of frame does evoke more vintage vibes than most others, but that doesn’t take away from the sleek and modern cool factor that’s evident in them. 

Oversized Frames: Fashionable Statement 

Frames that cover more of your face than usual are the ultimate fashion statement, with a bit of drama mixed in. They scream chic and 60s at the same time while also communicating a love for fashion and boldness to express yourself in unique and culture-defying ways.  

Overall, a pair of sunglasses will protect you from harmful rays, but as we’ve pointed out, they’ll do so much more. Next time you pop on a pair, think twice about what you might be communicating and if that’s what you’re aiming for.  

You never know; it might be a chic kind of day!
