It’s fall in the Northern Hemisphere, with winter creeping up quickly. Although the sunglasses business tends to see sales spiking in late spring and during the summer, sunglasses are important in fall and winter, as well. The sun’s still shining, and that means your eyes still need protection.
Cooler temperatures also often means lower moods, so why not keep your mood up while looking great in a pair of stylish wooden sunglasses? If you live in a part of the world where the seasons change regularly, each change is an opportunity to creatively pick out which new designs and colors will go best with the changing temperatures.
For fall specifically, you’ll want to consider shades that come in a light brown or golden tone. These darker shades add a bit of warmth to the cooler temperatures, and are perfect for that autumnal hike or walk around your favorite lake. A darker shade like those of the Dark Walnut Polarized Sunglasses are dark enough to acknowledge that summer’s gone without being intense enough for winter.
Colors for Fall 2017
If you’re not a big fashionista, don’t worry – yes, technically each fall has its own palette, but colors generally tend to all stay somewhat similar each year. But if it does matter to you, you’ll want to know that red is apparently the color for this fall. Pantone’s colors for fall in New York this year include names like “Butterum” and “Shaded Spruce,” while London can look for colors like “Flame Scarlet” and “Otter.” All these colors look great paired with a dark walnut tone, or even charcoal smoke zebra wood. Here’s a breakdown of the biggest fall color categories and what wooden sunglasses colors you’ll want to try with them:
- Dark wines are always a fall favorite. Evoking a sense of warmth and comfort, these tones never go out of style. If you tend towards wearing clothes in these colors, try Dark Walnut Polarized Wood Sunglasses for this fall.
- Muted greens, whether they lean more towards a golden lime or a spruce, evoke a sense of harmony with nature. Try pairing these with Earthshade’s Dark Walnut Wood Sunglasses.
- For those of you obsessed with burnt orange tones, shades in dark walnut or cool bamboo is the way to go.
- Grey may be more of a tone that reflects one’s mood about the cloudy days of autumn, as it definitely doesn’t evoke a sense of warmth or comfort. Still, it’s an important fall tone, and with this one you have more options as to which shade of brown you can go with, as grey tends to pair well with both lighter and darker browns.
- Navy blue isn’t a color you’ll hear talked about as much, but it still sneaks into fall wardrobes. If you find yourself wearing items mostly in this color, try pairing your wardrobe with the Charcoal Smoke Zebra Wood Polarized Sunglasses.
This fall will also be likely to see lots of fur and glitzy boots, along with snug scarves and hats. Depending on where you live, you may have to deal with snow glare, but even if you don’t you’ll still want to make sure your outfit is complete with the right pair of shades, especially with all those photos you’ll still be taking.
After reading all this, don’t forget these are just general guidelines – for all you style rebels out there, there’s nothing wrong, of course, with wearing lighter tones in the cooler seasons. Always be true to your own personal sense of style, as confidence is one of the most attractive qualities a person can have. While changing temperatures can be an excuse for changing tones in your wardrobe, they don’t always have to be. And if you have other ideas for which wooden sunglasses colors pair best with fall colors, we’d love to hear them!
