Sunglasses can be hard to buy online. You order them, they come to your door, you rip them out of the box, throw them on your face, and run to the mirror, thinking something along the lines of, please be love at first sight. Unfortunately, more often than not, the love is lost; the frames are either too small, too large, or too (insert adjective here).
I know that sounds pretty bleak, but I promise there is a light at the end of the tunnel (which will definitely require UV protection). With all the problems that come along with buying new shades online, they are a key item (your eyes really do need protection, especially in the summer, and sunnies are one of the best accessories for instantly sprucing up an outfit). So, in case of a future scratch, poor fit, or an oops I sat on them again moment, why not opt for a pair that looks high-end, but actually costs you next to nothing? Click through to find a ton of frames that will bring you life and leave you feeling totally fine
if when they get smushed.
