GO TINT OR GO HOME

Coloured lenses are trend­ing hard.

Esquire (Malaysia) - - STYLE - WORDS BY SARAH CHONG

Ev­ery­one knows fash­ion trends are cycli­cal. And this sea­son, for shades, we’re go­ing back to the ’90s. With a pop of colour on your lenses, you’ll be mak­ing a big state­ment with just an easy de­tail switch. Just choose a frame de­sign that you’re com­fort­able with. Take your pick from a red, blue, green or yel­low tint (even rose or or­ange if you dare). Each tint has its in­di­vid­ual ben­e­fits, such as green keeps colour dis­tor­tion to a min­i­mum and sub­tly im­proves con­trast on ex­tra glar­ing days, while yel­low in­creases colour con­trast and vis­i­bil­ity, but ul­ti­mately, all pro­tect you from those darn UV rays. Style in­spi­ra­tion for this trend? We sug­gest more Johnny Depp and less Justin Tim­ber­lake dur­ing his *NSYNC days.
