9 Sunglasses That Won’t Fog Up When You’re Wearing A Mask

When it comes to wearing sunglasses with a face mask, one of the biggest challenges is to avoid fogging of the lenses. The glasses will fog when air is trapped behind the frame when it flows upwards from your mask, resulting in a change of air temperature and condensation that prevents you from being able to see. A poorly fit face mask is often the culprit of the issue, allowing too much air to escape upwards. But there are also better choices that you can make when it comes to your sunglass style.

When searching for the perfect sunglasses to wear with a face mask, it’s time to throw some of the sportier trends away in favor for a more classic, flat shape. Side ventilation is a must, which is hard to come by with frames that wrap around the side of your face in an aerodynamic way. The solution? Consider styles like wayfarers, Aviators, straight cat-eye frames and more. Your options are seemingly endless, as long as you have a little room to breathe between the front panel and the sides.

Ahead, find some of the chicest sunglasses out there, just in time for Summer. And the best part is, they’ll all be perfectly easy to wear with a mask — and you’ll love them long after that mask is no longer a requirement.
