A little bit about Le Specs
If you haven’t heard of Le Specs sunglasses, chances are you’ve probably seen them. Having developed a bit of a cult following internationally, Le Specs on trend and innovative sunnies have been seen on some of the world’s most famous celebs, like Lady Gaga and Rhianna. Not too shabby for a brand that started in Sydney in 1979.
The secret behind Le Spec’s success is that they offer trendsetting styles of sunglasses that aren’t going to break the bank, oh and that offer comprehensive protection. The experts at Le Specs know that you can have style and protection all wrapped up neatly in a pair of affordable sunglasses.
They also offer peace of mind with every pair of sunglasses being tested to ensure they meet international protective standards, and every single pair is hand polished to perfection!
Now that you know a little bit about the brand, let’s talk about some of the styles and features of sunglasses Le Specs offers.
Amazing Features and Styles of Le Specs Sunglasses
Modern meets classic
Mixing retro cool with touches of modernity, this is a simple way to sum up what Le Specs does best. Le Specs have worked hard to bring iconic and classic styles of sunglasses back to life with their own spin, and without the massive price tags of other brands.
Throughout their entire range of sunglasses, you can see nods to famous shades of the 20th century. Take the ever-iconic Wayfarer style of shades by Ray Ban. Le Specs have reinterpreted this style in a variety of models, each of which has the same effortless cool of Wayfarers, just with their own Le Specs touches. The Le Specs Bad Medicine, No Biggies and Fair Game, are some examples of how Le Specs have taken their cues from the Wayfarers.
Another equally iconic pair that Le Specs have made their own is the Ray Ban Clubmasters – you can see the ode to this style in the Le Specs Fire Starters, the Bandwagons and No Smirking styles.
Inspired by classic styles Le Specs makes it possible to own a pair.
Oversized not overpriced
Who could forget iconic celebrities of the early 2000s, think Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and the Olsen Twins, and their favourite accessories – oversized sunglasses?
Well, this is a look that will never get old, and to be fair, there’s a good reason for this. Not only do they add an air of mystery, but they also offer great protection to your eyes, but also to the delicate skin around them.
Some of the oversized styles available include the Frofros and the Glo Getters, or you can go for super feminine oversized Le Specs Cat Eye Sunglasses, like the Liar Liars and the Resumption styles.
While the oversized sunglasses trend is most often associated with women’s styles, Le Specs offers oversized sunnies for men, including the Le Specs Covert and the Le Specs Master Tamers.
While Le Specs have traditionally made sunglasses for protection from the UV rays outside, they have recently released many of their famous styles in the form of Blue Light Lens glasses.
If you’re not sure what blue light lens glasses do, they actually help to reduce the amount of blue light your eyes are exposed to. Blue light is omitted from electronic devices with screens, like computers, smartphones, and televisions, and can cause eyestrain.
The eyestrain is caused by the blue light making it more difficult for your eyes to adjust and focus on the screens. However, blue blight lens glasses combat this by filtering this blue light and improving the contrast of the screen you are looking at, which means your eyes don’t need to work harder than they should be when using your devices.
Heaps of Le Specs sunnies styles are now available with blue light lens, including the Swizzles, the No Biggies, and the Fire Starter.
Just while we’re on lenses, Le Specs is on top of the game when it comes to the different kinds and colours available.
Now, you might think the colour of your sunnies lens is all about style and fashion, and while this does play a part, coloured lenses in your sunnies can make life a lot easier in certain circumstances.
For example, brown tinted lenses are great for improving contrast while driving, yellow and orange lenses are really good for reducing glare and providing better vision clarity when in the snow or during water-based activities, and blue lense sunglasses work well in foggy conditions and also around reflective surfaces, like water, snow, and ice.
You can find a heap of styles with a wide variety of coloured lenses in the Le Specs range of sunnies.
