  • It's in trend - at least it was last summer.

    There's always something in fashion that someone is going to think is ridiculous and that others are going to follow regardless. It's about personal taste - and for a lot of young women - mimicking the style of their favorite celeb.

    For what I can make out - a lot of people who wear them, apart from copying style, like them because they allow you to have off days with make-up - where most of your face is covered.

    They accommodate for full shielding of the eyes - so if you're sat on the beach, reading a book you don't get ray above or below the glasses.

    And a lot of people have said they're more comfortable.

    I don't know if I agree with that - but each to their own.

    A lot of people however, tend not to take their face shape into consideration when buying sunglasses and a slight alteration in the frame can change the style from looking 'weird' to something quite flattering and chic. Some face shapes should just avoid them.

    That said - I much prefer a lot of other style sunglasses above this one.

  • I wear big glasses 'cause each one of my eyeballs is 4 inches wide. You may be wonderin if I have a giant head, whereas my eyes are so big, but nope, just about the size of a big cabbage, like everyone elses. The big eyes I was born with, but my ears didn't start growing real giant-like til I was 12. Got so big I finally had to snip em off, cause they were making my head too heavy. 'Course then my glasses wouldn't stay on so I had to jammer some plugs into my head. That hurt some. Like I always say, it's always rainin sumwhere.

  • To me meh I don't really care for them but if I could choose on or off defiantly off there not even the most stylish glasses. Anyways I'm not much for fashion but I don't really see and appeal.

  • Nothing, weird, nothing exceptional, it was the trend 20 years ago, now the trend is to small glasses.

  • Because it in, plain and simple. Same reason people pierce they're ears, other people do it.

  • They were actually in fashion, a long time ago. I know it seems hard to understand at your age, but fashions come and go, and things only look right or wrong to depending on how used to them we are.

  • I'm not into sunglasses in general myself lol, but I don't think it's that bad of a trend. Like most other trends, sometimes it looks good and sometimes it just doesn't. But people just do it because it's popular.

    And, a fun fact that may be relevant: big eyes are one of the universal views of beauty, along with being symmetrical and whatnot.

  • I love both of those sunglasses but I'd only wear the second ones. I loveee big sunglasses! The bigger the better-they cover the whole eye area, you don't need to wear any make-up and you can just throw them on and they make you look great! I'm a big fan lol. And I like them to be totally blacked out so I can people watch lol.

  • That's the exact reason. I love wearing them, when I'm going out in my sweats and I don't even need to worry about my makeup or anything. It's perfect.

  • Both pictures look dumb... People should pick glasses based on the shape of their face..
