What are wraparound sunglasses?
Wraparound sunglasses have a sporty silhouette with frames that wrap around the head to provide full-coverage UV protection for the eyes. This protective style was first invented for outdoor activities such as skiing and cycling when the wearer requires full coverage eyewear.
Due to its quirky and futuristic appearance, however, the style was later adopted by 90s ravers, beginning wraparound sunglasses’ fashion legacy and leading to their revived popularity today.
Functional and fashionable, you’re as likely to find these versatile sunglasses on a sporty dad as a stylish daughter.
