Festival Essentials - Sunglasses

Ever wondered what sunglasses are best for your festival look? When it comes to festival fashion, sunglasses are a must-have accessory. They not only help protect your eyes from the harsh desert sun, but they also add a touch of style and personality to your character.

There are many different styles of sunglasses that are popular at festivals like Coachella, EDC and Burning Man. Retro inspired cat eye shades are a classic trend, as are futuristic sunglasses with distinctive frames and multi-colored round glasses. Mirrored lenses are also very popular, as they add a bit of mystery and intrigue to your appearance. For Burning Man goggles in particular can be very helpful to protect the eyes during dust storms. 

Do I need polarized sunglasses? Polarized sunglasses are designed to have a special coating that blocks the sun's glare from water and other non-metallic surfaces like leaves and sand. Polarized sunglasses are especially useful for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, like surfers, fishermen, beach-goers and golfers. They help reduce eye strain and can improve visual clarity by reducing glare from the sun and from reflective surfaces such as water and sand. Polarized sunglasses are a bit more expensive than regular sunglasses, but the advantages can make the extra cost worth it. For a festival where your eyes simply need UV protection and you are not concerned about the sun's glare on water or non-metallic surfaces, regular sunglass lenses will suffice. 

What are the best sunglasses to wear at night? Sometimes you still want to accessorize your look in the evening but traditional sunglasses are too dark. We recommend light tint glasses which generally come in a variety of colors transparent enough that they will not obstruct your vision. We also offer clear lens glasses that offer no tint at all and will coordinate with any outfit. 

No matter what style of sunglasses you choose, make sure they reflect your personality and style. After all, festivals are all about expressing your individuality!
