Celebrities are constantly wearing sunglasses to hide their faces
from the stares of onlookers and overzealous paparazzi, not to mention
the sun. As I page through the gossip magazines, watch celebrity news
shows and devour sports websites, it is abundantly evident that
shades are the way to look cool, calm and collected in front of prying eyes.
This season athletes and celebrities have been spotted wearing
vintage inspired sunglasses similar to the Ray-Ban wayfarer that first
surfaced in the early 1950's. This wayfarer sunglass style was a staple in the
1950's and 1960's and again in the 1980's thanks to product placement
in popular movies and shows such as Risky Business, Miami Vice and The Breakfast Club.
The popular style faded during the 1990's, but made another
resurgence in the new millennium. The vintage style can now be seen
gracing the faces of young Hollywood, Top 40 musicians and professional athletes alike.
If you're like me, you refuse to pay for the brand name shades,
because you know you'll lose or break them; however, I still want to be fashionable! Thankfully, LIDS has several hot new
shades for a fraction of the price, but with the same iconic wayfarer look. So
if you want to look like a celebrity, but don't have the celebrity
budget to back it up, check out the latest iLIDS sunglass collection. These sunglasses are two for $20 and up the ante on any look. Don't be caught without your iLIDS…you never know when paparazzi will follow you to the grocery store, movie theater or while shopping at LIDS!
Justin Timberlake, Joe Jonas and Courtney Cox Arquette have all been seen sportin' vintage "nerd" wayfarer glasses. These stars prove a little nerd goes a long way!
If you're looking for a darker lens, think about adding a funky color or
pattern to a classic frame for some extra zip. Stars like Jessica
Alba, Sienna Miller, Paris Hilton, Liv Tyler and Kirsten Dunst all crank
up the volume with colorful frames! Can you imagine all the ways you
could wear these wayfarer glasses?
Terrell Owens, the latest addition to the Cincinnati Bengals, manages to pair his hip wayfarer shades with another perfectly in style accessory–the straw fedora!
