HomeBlogFloral Sunglasses: Summertime Flower Power

Floral sunglasses have long been a go-to for women’s sunglasses styles. What makes a pair of sunglasses “floral”? When talking about frame patterns, floral is used as a catch-all term for patterns that are not quite striped and not quite tortoise. While tortoiseshell patterns tend to be caramel, chocolate, and honey hues mixed in with black, floral patterns tend to be bright swirls and bursts of blue, rose, and violet set against black. Floral patterns also incorporate the whimsical, ink-in-water type of motif and the occasional frost-kissed or crystalline pattern has been known to make its way in with floral frames as well. So if you’re new to the world of florals or feel like you need some tips on how to find the right pair of floral sunglasses, then this little guide is for you!

Finding your floral fit
