How Much Should You Pay For Designer Sunglasses?
Designer sunglasses have made a comeback as one of the top fashion accessories. For a while there, it was all about the two for $10 plastic- lensed, plastic-framed sunglasses that served the utilitarian purpose of protecting your eyes, but now the trend has reversed and sunglasses are once again a big deal.
Some of the brands of designer sunglasses include Armani, Christian Dior, Versace, Gucci, Prada, and Ralph Lauren. A pair of Prada SPR 28L S Havana sunglasses will set you back about $245.00. Compare this to a pair of Shiny Black Versace 4170’s for $230.00 or Gucci Black and White 1627/S glasses for $220.00 and you’ll get a general idea of how much these fashion accessories are going to set you back. If you’re looking for designer sunglasses at a slightly lower price, you can get a pair of Marc Jacobs for $98.00, Coach Odessa’s for $135.00 or Ed Hardy Love Kills Slowly for $99.00.
If these prices give you sticker shock, you should compare them to the prices that you pay for other fashion accessories, like diamond jewelry, silk scarves, or handbags. After all, a good pair of designer sunglasses have a practical use and are made well enough to last multiple seasons.
You can shop by brand or by price online or in your local department store or Sunglass Hut. Other designer brands include Carrera, Cabana, Burberry, Valentino, Kate Spade, and Juicy Couture. If you want to be fashionable as well as protect yourself from those harmful sun rays, don’t do what ZZ Top recommended, that is, don’t get yourself a pair of cheap sunglasses. Rather, spring for a nice pair of designer sunglasses next time you’re in the market.
