Here at SLH, we like a good holiday celebration, especially when a great sale comes along with it! In case you didn’t know, National Sunglasses Day is coming up on June 27th. Created to remind everyone that sunglasses are much more than just an amazing fashion accessory, they can literally save your sight.
That’s right – chronic UV exposure can raise your risk of corneal damage, developing cataracts, and even age-related macular degeneration. Wearing your sunnies when the UV levels are high is one of the best ways to protect yourself from these potentially damaging conditions. So you can have your fun in the sun and stay protected too!
And to celebrate this (as well as encourage us all to wear them) our friends at Blenders Eyewear are saying Happy Sunglasses Day with their very own National Sunglass Day Sale. Starting TODAY and running until this Sunday, June 26th (11:59 am Pacific) every pair of sunglasses on Blender’s website will be 30% OFF their already amazingly affordable prices.
Not sure where to start? Hey, we got you. Our Editors got a sneak peek of this sale and have put together their fast five favorites you’re sure to fall in love with. Ready to get started? Let’s dive in!
#5 – CLASSIC MEETS CANDY
Blame it all on a *little* movie about pilots that hit the big screen recently, but classic aviators are trending hard right now. Of course, rocking the OG versions is more than acceptable, but if you are truly looking for a twist, take some J.Lo inspo and grab some candy-colored versions. This peach and gold version is called Flirt Wagon, and is spot on perfect at a price you seriously cannot argue with…
Blenders Eyewear, Shadow in Flirt Wagon $41 (on Sale NOW from $59)
#4 – SHIELD SHADES
Our pop-culture collective obsession with all things Y2K shows zero signs of slowing down. So is it any wonder that from Bella to RiRi we’re TikTok flooded with shield shades? Short answer – nope. We prescribe grabbing your crop top and skater jeans and pairing them with these statement sunnies for a look that’s Destiny’s Child approved. YW.
Blenders Eyewear, Falcon in Awesummer $41 (on Sale NOW from $59)
#3 – UNAPOLOGETICALLY OVERSIZED
Speaking of the Bey, the fabulous Mrs Carter has always had a love for oversized but this season she is not alone. Just about everyone is embracing the bigger is better. If this happens to be you, these ‘go big or go home’ shades called Drive Me Wild will do exactly that…
Blenders Eyewear, Buttertron in Drivemewild $41 (on Sale NOW from $59)
#2 – THE FUTURE HAS EDGES
Channel your inner Billie with this edgy pair called Polite Pearl. These sunnies are 100% music fest vibe, but could easily work with more lowkey fits such as a tee and jeans or your fav boho maxi. The choice is yours…
Blenders Eyewear, Maika in Polite Pearl $20 (on Sale NOW from $29)
#1 – FEELING CAT-TY
It’s a true classic, and if for whatever reason you don’t have this staple already in your wardrobe rotation – Get. Them. Now. The archetypal black cat-eye sunglasses have protected the peepers of celebrities and icons from Audrey Hepburn to Meghan Markle. Why is this mainstay considered by so many to be nearly the perfect pair? A classic cat-eye, with its upward curves is universally flattering to all face types and exudes a feminine strength. It truly is a timeless accessory that you’ll wear again and again for years to come.
