15 Cool Sunglasses To Block Out The Haters All Winter Long
The winter season is upon us, but that’s no reason to neglect one of the most important style accessories known to ‘man — stylish winter sunglasses. In fact, those harsh, frosty winds should warrant your wear of one (or three) different pairs of sunglasses per week: After all, they guard against dreaded watery eyes during your commute to work, or a meet up with the squad.
In addition to your favorite beanie or chic leather gloves, sunglasses can totally make a winter outfit more lit than you ever thought possible. The Huffington post reported that it's imperative to wear sunglasses in the winter to protect your skin and eyes from harmful UV rays, but they're also a crucial part of the ongoing quest to block out haters from view (arguably even more important).
There are thousands of pairs of sunglasses out there, but I’ve spotted 15 in particular that are prime for hater blocking. Keep a pair in your purse, on your bedside table, and maybe even your desk at work, and get ready to whip them out at a moment’s notice — you’ll look perfectly prepared for winter's chill, and block the haters that have no chill.
