STRUT: Tinted Sunnies Look 02

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

When shades of pineapple, mustard, and canary graced my Instagram feed this summer, that's when I knew tinted yellow sunglasses are back. Of course, we've seen it on Liza - so there's no reason to question why it's so popular.

Since I was 7, I knew what I wanted to wear. I have always been a girly girl in preppy skirts and doll flats. I avoided chucks, muscle tees, and leather clothing (probably, anything that can be worn as unisex). Nothing was really wrong with them, kikay stuff just caught my eye faster. And it was fine, I was happy to know my style. 

Never would I have imagine that I will be wearing aviator-styled frames. I have always thought of them as manly, and reminded me too much of what fathers wear in the 80's. What made me change my mind is pure curiosity. I was attracted to the pineapple color - it reminds me of Spongebob's house! I thought then, maybe I should step out of my comfort zone and try something androgynous. Do you think I pulled it off? 

One thing I just have to say about these sunnies - don't expect it to make everything shady. Trust me, it does the opposite. Everything you'll see is yellow and bright, which is fine for me (I'll hate it if it's sepia).
