Disadvantages: face sweats
Changing your sunglasses style is the perfect way of updating any summer look. They are not only a fashion statement but a functional and much needed accessory in the summer if you want to protect your eyes from harmful rays. They also help prevent unsightly wrinkles around the eye area caused by squinting which indeed you have to do if you do not wear a pair of shades. These are a fashion pair by diesel but they also help protect my eyes.
==Price and availability==
I bought these in the summer of 2011 before my big Vegas holiday. I paid top whack for them at £89 at the sunglass hut but you can now buy them for around £70 in places such as Amazon.
These are very attractive glasses and designed for people with heart shaped or oval face shapes as they soften the lower portion of your face shape by accentuating the eye area. The glasses feature large oversized black glass lenses set in black plastic frames with a white trim. The arms are plastic too and are quite wide at the sides which then taper down to a point. The arms are slightly curved which fit behind the ears. The section that fits across the nose is also plastic which can get a little uncomfortable as you perspire throughout the day. The arms have a slight detail on which features the abstract looking D that is symbolic of the brand.
The glasses are comfortable and despite their size they are not heavy. The arms are well made, balanced and feel secure when pushed against my ears. The only drawback in terms of comfort is that my eyes get very sweaty when they are behind the glasses, especially when wore for long periods of time.
The glasses offer me adequate protection, although at first I was slightly worried that the way the glass fades in colour may result in the glasses not being very good for UV protection. It turns out that the light bit of glass still has adequate UV protection. I wore these in the grand canyon and it was over 40 degrees, I found them to be very good at protecting my eyes.
I like the glasses and I may wear them again this year although I do enjoy treating myself to a new pair of glasses every year. These are comfortable, attractive and they suit my face shape, well recommended. They are good hangover glasses as they protect your face.
Summary: a good buy
