HomeBlogWhy Everyone Needs Purple Tinted Glasses

Whether it’s for festival season or your throwback 90s look, there’s one key accessory that you never knew you were missing—purple tinted glasses. For your inspiration, we’ve put together a guide with iconic styles known for rocking spectacular spectacles with lilac lenses. But before we do, let’s look at how to actually get a pair of purple tinted glasses.

How to order purple tinted glasses

Now, there’s a reason we keep saying “glasses” and not “sunglasses”. At EyeBuyDirect, we offer six different tint colors for all of our sunwear. We have brown, green, and gray for Basic, Gradient, and Polarized sunglasses lenses, and blue, silver, and gold for Mirrored lenses. These colors were carefully chosen since we believe they work best with almost any pair of our sunglass frames. But at the same time, we’re also fans of variety.

Ever been browsing our catalog and thought to yourself, “this frame would be really cool for sunglasses”? You’re in luck! All of our eyeglass frames can be fitted with tinted sun lenses. Sun lenses offer all our classes sunglasses colors, plus blue and purple depending on your selection. So whether you need a prescription or not, choosing sun lenses lets you turn any pair of regular EyeBuyDirect glasses into a cool pair of shades.

To find our purple lenses, simply choose Sun (after you’ve selected your lens usage) and under Sun, you’ll have an option called Gradient. Click on Gradient, select purple, and voilà! Now that you know how to get your purple tinted lenses, let’s talk looks.

The Hippie

First up we have one of our favorite looks, The Hippie. For ladies, it’s all about the patterned skirts and peasant blouses, while for men, it’s long hair and linen tops. To round out this bohemian style, you’ll need a pair of hippie glasses. The easiest way to get that iconic John Lennon look is to go with a pair of glasses with a wire metal frame and of round metal glasses with lilac tinted lenses. If you want a more classic look, you’ll definitely want to go with a pair with a full-rimmed frame. For those of you who feel a little more adventurous, why not try something rimless! Since you’ll be rocking purple lenses, it’s good to match them with frames that have a solid color; gold and silver colored frames work best.

The Rockstar

Torn blue jeans, black leather jacket with matching boots, and a v-neck so deep it’d make the Grand Canyon jealous, this is The Rockstar. And since the sun never sets on a rockstar, no rock n’ roll look is complete without a pair of shades. If you’re going for something that’s a little more “rock”, then you should definitely go for some silver metal aviators with purple tinted lenses. For a style that’s a little more on the progressive side, then a pair of shades with thick black frames might be more up your alley.

The Diva

When it comes to figuring out how to look like The Diva, repeat these three words: big, bold, and beautiful. For glasses, this means large or oversized frames with big lenses and thick rims. To obtain a bold, feminine look, frames with a cat-eye shape work really well. And as for beauty, while the violet tinted lenses are a given, there’s one more thing you can do to make this look go from shine sparkle—Party Glasses! Party glasses add a dash glitz to your look with a genuine white Swarovski crystal set in your lens. To make any pair of glasses into Party Glasses, just choose Customize at the end of your lens selection and select an index where Party Glasses are available.
