Y2K Silver Sunglasses

Silver sunglasses have gained a crazy amount of popularity in recent months and we think things will continue this way!

From formal wear to streetwear, silver sunglasses have become a staple amongst the younger fashion enthusiasts as people look for new ways to make the outfits stand out.

Transparent Sunglasses

Much like the silver sunglasses trend, transparent sunglasses have gained popularity in recent months as people look for new ways to elevate their outfits in new and exciting ways. Traditionally, transparent sunglasses have featured a simple transparent frame and boring round lenses and are often associated with being old fashioned. However, as new materials are being used to satisfy modern tastes, and manufacturing processes have evolved, transparent sunglasses have been revived and offer immense versatility with their endless combination of styles and colours. Transparent sunglasses are no longer just offered in one style, but can fit into many categories such as y2k sunglasses, rimless sunglasses and futuristic sunglasses.

What Sunglasses Are Out Of Style?

Aviators and wayfarers, once considered the epitome of men's sunglasses, are now a thing of the past as men opt for more daring and fashionable options. In the past, men typically owned just one pair of sunglasses, and the choice was few and far between. Most choices included sunglasses that were black with thin metal frames such as Aviators and Wayfarers, where most styles generally look the same. Recently however, there has been an increase in men choosing more bold and futuristic styles to help them standout in a sea of ordinary. When we started TheShadePrjct, we wanted to make these trends accessible to everyone, that's why our range includes the most popular sunglasses from a variety of trending categories.

Men and Women alike are opting for the most popular styles that pop up on social media. From y2k sunglasses such as our 'E1' rimless sunglasses and our 'Ibiza' rimless sunglasses, to retro sunglasses such as our 'Techno' rectangle sunglasses' and our 'Dance on Arrival' retro sunglasses.
