Retro sunglasses are making a comeback. This could be a good thing or a bad thing.  I like retro looks for the most part. Sometimes the “retro” look doesn’t even have to go back that far; it may only go back to the 1990s. For example, you might have heard of a popular style that’s coming back called the Wayfarer. For those of you who were around during the 90’s, these glasses were everywhere, and you could pick them up anywhere. You could get the expensive kind or go to your local dollar store and grab a pair.

Now they’re back! But is this a good thing? I mean did they really look that good the first time around? Maybe, but I prefer the new modifications. Solid colors look better than the “I’m not sure what I’m going for here, but I love manic day-glow colors.” Take these, for example:

They are classy, single minded and modern. They’re bright, but they avoid the neon colors of the 90s, and they have a more modern shape to the frame. Wouldn’t you agree they’re more stylish? So stick with the slightly fresh and new – even when it’s just a new take on a retro look.
