Factors to Consider When Choosing Rave Sunglasses

When selecting the ideal pair of raving sunglasses, it's important to keep several factors in mind to ensure you find the perfect fit for your style and needs.

Style and Design

Consider your personal taste and the overall aesthetic you want to achieve. Whether you prefer a bold and vibrant look or a sleek and sophisticated appearance, there are rave sunglasses available to suit every style. Think of what rave outfits you want to wear and think what colour palette may compliment this.

Lens Properties

Different lenses offer unique visual effects. Some lenses diffract light, while others create reflective or kaleidoscopic effects. Choose lenses that align with your desired visual experience and mood. Many festivals and raves are themed, from cyberpunk raves to pirate themed festivals like the popular 'Elrow Town' festival, consider what theme you want to dress towards when choosing raving sunglasses.

Durability and Quality

Since raves can be intense and energetic, opt for sunglasses made from durable materials. Look for sturdy frames and high-quality lenses that can withstand the dynamic environment of raves. Our entire range of sunglasses are crafted using high quality materials such as Italian acetate and polycarbonate, ensuring a durable pair of sunglasses that will last forever if cared for properly. Check out our blog post on how to clean your sunglasses to ensure your favourite sunglasses live for as long as possible!

Comfort and Fit

Rave sunglasses should not only look good but also feel comfortable throughout the event. Ensure they fit securely on your face without causing any discomfort or causing indents on your nose or temples. Choosing the right sunglasses for your face shape is often overlooked, but is incredible important. An ill-fitting pair of sunglasses can cause pain and discomfort if they put pressure on certain sensitive points on your face, particular the temples.

How To Style Rave Sunglasses

Rave sunglasses are versatile accessories that can elevate your rave outfit to new heights. Consider the following tips when styling your sunglasses to achieve a cohesive and eye-catching look.

Rave sunglasses are designed to be worn both during the day and at night. They provide UV protection during daylight hours and create stunning visual effects in low-light environments.

2. Can I wear rave sunglasses with prescription lenses?

Some brands offer rave sunglasses with prescription lens options. Check with the manufacturer or look for specialised eyewear retailers that offer this service.

3. Are rave sunglasses one-size-fits-all?

Our range of sunglasses generally follow a one-size-fits-all practice, it is recommended to follow our face shape guide to find the perfect fitting pair of sunglasses for your face.

4. Can you clean sunglasses with glass cleaner?

It's best to use a microfibre cloth or lens cleaner specifically designed for eyewear to clean your rave sunglasses. Avoid using regular glass cleaners, as they may contain chemicals that can damage the lenses and coatings.

5. Are LED sunglasses waterproof?

While some LED sunglasses may be water-resistant, it's important to check the manufacturer's specifications. Avoid submerging them in water or exposing them to excessive moisture to prevent damage to the electronic components.

6. How to choose sunglasses with proper UV protection?

Choosing sunglasses with proper UV protection is crucial for safeguarding your eyes from harmful sun rays. Look for sunglasses labeled as providing 100% UV protection or blocking UVA and UVB rays. Opt for reputable brands and retailers known for their high-quality sunglasses. Additionally, consider sunglasses with larger frames or wraparound styles to provide better coverage and minimise UV exposure from the sides.

7. Do all sunglasses have UV protection?

No, not all sunglasses have UV protection. Some sunglasses may only offer basic sun glare reduction without adequate UV protection. To ensure your eyes are properly shielded, it's essential to select sunglasses that specifically mention UV protection or indicate that they block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Always check the product details or consult with the retailer if you're unsure about the level of UV protection provided.

8. Are polarised sunglasses the same as UV protection sunglasses?

No, polarised sunglasses and UV protection sunglasses are not the same, although they serve different purposes. UV protection sunglasses are designed to block harmful UVA and UVB rays, reducing the risk of eye damage. On the other hand, polarised sunglasses are designed to reduce glare caused by reflections, such as from water or snow. While many polarised sunglasses also provide UV protection, it's important to ensure that the sunglasses you choose offer both features for complete eye protection.

9. Should you wear sunglasses on cloudy days?

Yes, it is still advisable to wear sunglasses on cloudy days. Even though the sun may be partially hidden behind clouds, like at a festival. UV rays can still penetrate through and reach your eyes. Cloud cover does not provide complete protection against UV radiation, and prolonged exposure can still lead to eye damage. Wearing sunglasses with UV protection on cloudy days helps safeguard your eyes from harmful rays and ensures ongoing eye health.
