50 IS NOT OLD | THE SUNGLASSES YOU NEED | FASHION OVER 40While I have been here on vacation in Cancun I have seen a little bit of every style. There are always a few items that stand out as being new and trendy and then there are the items that are classics and have been around for awhile. Today, I was noticing sunglasses. I recommend a good pair of polarized sunglasses and I don’t mind spending money for those. However, I also want the latest trends and I don’t want to spend a fortune on those since they will probably go out of style rather quickly.


I can’t think about sunglasses without thinking of Ray-Bans. Is there anyone else like me that thinks like that? I went to a vintage fashion show and they had a pair of Wayfarers from the 60’s that still looked perfect. Think about Roy Orbison and his signature sunglasses. Those were Wayfarers and they are still being worn today. Besides the Wayfarers, there are also the Aviators from Ray-Ban. These have been just as popular lately but the colored lens has made them a little more trendy looking. I love the ones that are mirror tinted.

Cat Eye

Retro trends are also very trendy. The cat-eye is a classic that just keeps staying around and it is really hot right now. I think of the movie stars when I think of cat-eye glasses. I even have a couple of vintage pairs but they are very small and are not comfortable. So instead, I will grab a newer pair this year. The newer versions are bigger and fit my face better.

Maui Jim

I was introduced to this brand when I when I went to San Diego last year. Now, I am a HUGE fan. I have never had any problems but I was told at the shop that Maui Jim stands behind their products. I just needed to keep my receipt. Anyway, there are over 100 styles to choose from and they offer 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays. My eyes are not something that I want to mess around with.

      I have several of the tortoise shell style glasses too. I love them since they are not as “harsh” as the black against my skin tone.

  2. I really enjoy your article each day. May 1st is my bday. Yay for May girls.
