Join Steph from SportRx as she shares the top picks for the best women's lifestyle sunglasses of the year!
You'll want a pair of sunglasses that are comfortable to wear all day long. Frames that are constructed from lightweight materials, such as acetate and O Matter™, won't bog you down. Rubber grips on the temples and nose pad also provide a comfortable fit, while keeping the frames securely on your face.
For lenses, sunglasses with polarization or anti-reflective lens coating will block glare. You’ll enjoy the improved, unobstructed visual experience of these lens benefits, whether you're driving around, lounging at the beach, or taking a walk around your neighborhood. Additionally, many top brands on our best-of list have their own popular lens technologies that increase contrast, enhance colors, and sharpen clarity.
Now that you understand some of the best lens and frame features, let’s jump into our 2022 women’s sunglasses lineup!
