Women’s sunglasses: fashionable and safe

The interesting history of women’s sunglasses

People have been trying for years to deal by any means possible with irritating and often dangerous external influences. When it was discovered that the sun’s rays are a threat to the eyes, methods of protection were quickly sought.

It is difficult to say exactly who first came up with the idea known to us today as sunglasses. According to several reliable sources, tinted glass has its roots in China, but more contemporary models of sunglasses debuted in the 17th century. They did not gain an immediate popular following, and were used, among others, by blind people wanting to hide their disability.

The second half of the 19th century saw much higher demand for sunglasses for women. This was because relaxing seaside holidays were becoming increasingly common, and even n 1900 Egyptian tourist resorts sold out of shades. Sunbathing became a new, fashionable activity, in which women gladly took part.

Filter sunglasses for women were long used by ladies on the beach or while travelling. Men took up male versions of the shades for different kinds of physical activity. Only later did they come to the attention of fashion designers, who began offering designer sunglasses for women as an element of women’s clothing and a required accessory to swimming costumes as beach style.

In the history of women’s sunglasses, 1939 is considered a breakthrough year. It was then that the cover of American Vogue magazine featured a unique and captivating photograph of a model, in round sunglasses with white frames around the tinted lenses. From that moment, sunglasses for women were officially part of the world of fashion.

Sunglasses were worn with pride, but also lent the wearer an air of mystery, a benefit that stars and other well-known people have eagerly taken advantage of. Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth and Jacqueline Kennedy are among those who have hidden behind dark glasses. Perhaps, too, it’s worth noting that all have been photographed wearing cat eye sunglasses.

Fashion for the sake of health

Sunglasses have become a permanent feature of the collections of famous designers. Gucci, Mykita, Diesel are just some of the well-known brands offering a rich choice of designs and shapes. They are based not only on the abovementioned design of sunglasses, but also on comfort and safety – hence they can sometimes be very expensive. It is, however, worth investing in proven designer sunglasses for women, if only for the sake of our eyesight.

Let us not forget that, although sunglasses are an element of everyday wear, adding style and elegance and allowing the wearer to create an aura of mystery, they also perform another important function; that is, they protect our eyes from the harmful effects of sunlight. Tinted glasses eliminate such dangerous light, and designer sunglasses prevent eye strain.

The Vitkac.com online store offers a great selection of designer sunglasses for women, allowing a choice of reliable and safe tinted shades.
