We don’t know if anyone actually switches out their sunglasses for winter, or if it’s even necessary, but it might be a good idea this season. Why? Because velvet sunglasses are now a thing, that’s why. Normally people wear velvet pants or jackets, but lately the fabric has made its way onto some shades. If you’re someone who gets sick of wearing the same pair of sunglasses every day, you now have a reason to make the seasonal change.
This new trend is all about making a statement. You can get round black frames that will make you look like Audrey Hepburn, or go for sunnies in unexpected colors like green and pink. We know what you’re thinking, neon colors don’t really scream winter, but it’s totally fine. The velvet alone makes it all ok. Click through the slideshow to see some of the best velvet sunglasses.
