What to Look for in Lifestyle Sunglasses

Let’s start with frames. For your every day, you’ll want a lightweight fit that is comfortable and easy to wear. Sunglasses that won’t bog you down will allow you to tackle wherever your day takes you, and SMITH’s bio-based Evolve™ material is a great place to start. When it comes to coverage, keep an eye out for frames with a 4 to 6-base curve. Perfect for a lifestyle pair of sunglasses, these two options are less aggressive than the 8-base wrap of a sports frame.

Now, onto lenses. SMITH’s proprietary lens technology, ChromaPop™, enhances color, provides sharper contrast, and reduces eye fatigue. Another great option is polarization, as this frame function stops glare that occurs in everyday life, like when you’re driving or out on the water.
