If you’re a sunglasses junkie like me, you might have considered getting these unusual partially tinted shades…
Won online as part of an incentive program, so basically free. Aside from all the time I spend earning the points needed to score merchandise, these chic dark sunglasses were free.
The “Half Full Sunglasses” as these are called are extremely comfortable and measure 5.75 inches across, with each oversized round frame measuring in at just over 2.5 inches.
Due to their half shaded feature, they are perfect for a partially cloudy day – something that we’re getting quite often here in Atlanta! They also come in translucent smoky grey, tortoise shell and deep red as well as opaque white finishes.
By the way, the half tinted sunglasses are being offered by none other than French fashion powerhouse Chanel. Though on the Chanel pair, the arms are wavy rather than straight.
No wonder that half tinted oversized sunglasses, the Chanel kind and others, have also been spotted on celebs such as Nicole Richie, the Olsen twins, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, though Jlo’s have a clear lens.
I don’t know about you, but to me they smack a little of the notorious New York fashionista Iris Apfel, who adores donning humongous, thick, round, black glasses. Have to admit they’re on the funky side but nonetheless pretty cool.
