Sunski sunglasses for all seasons

I’ve long been a fan of Sunski sunglasses, and now, they’re making some of their hottest styles out of recycled frames. Yay! And all Sunskis feature polarized lenses, so I know that my eyes are getting serious protection even while I look good.

I recently tried out the Sunski Chalet style in grey sky, which might be my favorite to date. This particular style utilizes recycled plastic saved from a landfill in Illinois, and they’re super lightweight, hugging the face just enough without any squeezing or pinching. I forget they’re even there, which for me, is the idea. I have worn these backpacking this summer (they’re quite tough and flexible) and to the beach and lake. This fall, I plan to bring them on my business travel, and since they feature polarized lenses, I know they’ll be able to protect my eyes in the snow this winter, too.

The Chalet is unisex, and we tested this out: my teenaged sons like them as much as I do, a 40-year-old woman. They really go with anything and look good on anyone, with a pretty rounded shape that’s on-trend while remaining timeless.

The chalet style is on sale right now at Sunski for $51, a great deal on a classic pair of sunglasses that can be worn in all seasons, to all your far-flung destinations this year. Like all Sunskis, you get a forever warranty, so you can buy without worry, and if the grey frames with blue lenses don’t suit you, you can opt for the tortoise forest model, which is more understated or sophisticated and less sporty-looking. One percent of sales go back to environmental non-profits, and if you ever want to swap out your lenses, Sunski offers lens kits you can DIY.
