Revisit the Classics?


The 80s are back in full swing whether you would like to admit or not. Trust me that you will be seeing plenty of acid washed jeans on the city streets come fall. To complete this look you need a pair of Knockaround Sunglasses. These are the classic shades that every prepster wore on the beaches with white zinc to protect their noses. I suggest indulging in a pair of these classics, but trade the zinc for a spf that is not so obvious.



Don’t want to spend $100 on this trend? Me neither. The Originals only go for $7. You can pick from a rainbow of colors. Stock up and have a pair for each mood. This model features classic lines, a rugged, rubberized plastic frame, lenses that can pop in and out, and hinges that can take a beating. Perfect for when you nail that dig at your beach volleyball game. Need something a little more serious? The Premium version at a steeper $12 comes in basic colors. Pick the option that goes best with your skin tone and hair color. Options are Black, Brown, Clear and White. This version has a higher quality plastic, and smoother hinges. Also featuring a slightly edgier lens line and a key-hole notch at the top of the nose bridge Both versions have Knockaround’s logo etched into the side. The grandiose typeset is a fun and rich. In addition to looking fabulous the lenses are scratch-resistant lenses and have UV400 protection. Domestic shipping is free for orders over $21. Can't rack up a bill that high, anything under is a flat rate of $1.99. Which is basically free shipping compared to sights that get away with charging a whopping $10 (highway robbery). These are a fun pair of summer shades for those who don’t necessarily take themselves too seriously. I love how fun and bold they are. Be proud the 80s are back, just throw out those shoulder pads. Now go knock around a few ideas how you want to rock these shades come springtime.

How funny because I was just noticing the old school ray bans in our local mall! I had to stop & do a double take because they even had all the fun 80's colors in stock. Those acid washed jeans will be pegged too, right? :P
