Types of Sunglasses

What are the different types of sunglasses?

There are so many styles of sunglasses out there; countless shapes, materials, and lens options to choose from. The number of different types of sunglasses is pretty much limitless. But there are a few different styles of sunglasses that are timeless and keep getting recreated year after year. In fact, you could probably categorize all sunglasses under the umbrella of five basic styles: Aviator sunglasses, round sunglasses, square sunglasses, wrap around sunglasses, and cat-eye sunglasses. FramesDirect.com has the best selection online, so whatever type of designer sunglasses you are after, you can find them here.
