Mirror mirror on the… face; who is the fairest of them all?

Mirror mirror

Personally this mirror lens trend kind of snuck up on me, and I wanted to turn my nose up at it mostly because I’M INSANELY JEALOUS!

Yup, that lucky lady up there is not me, as you probably guessed by now.  As someone who’s eyes are too dry to wear contacts, I’m forced to get prescription sunglasses and unfortunately (at least not to my knowledge) they’re unable to do a mirror surface for those.  I think back wistfully of the young blissful years of high school and college when I was able to wear contacts, those were good times.  Eventually over time my ability to tolerate them got shorter and shorter, until I’d want to scratch my eyes out after having them in for only an hour.  I gave up at that point.

Well, nonetheless I think mirrored sunglasses are just gorgeous; from monochrome glean to fun tropical greens it’s a trend I’d happily throw money at, if only I could.  Here are my top 10 favorites.

I’m a huge fan of the round shape that’s been trending as well; I’m pleasantly surprised at how well it fits my face without looking too mad scientist.

  • Taylor Kyes

    I should get prescription sunglasses… probably isn’t good for me to just wear regular sunglasses without contacts!!! <3

  • There’s something very chic about mirror glasses! Those heart shaped sunnies are so cute!

    Have a great weekend!

  • It’s STRAIGHTASTYLE and the site is ditto.com 👍🏻

  • Oddly, my right eye is only like 150 but my left eye is double that; so sometimes in a very very bright envrionment (like the beach) I can also kind of get away with not wearing anything with prescription. But now that I have prescription sunglasses I never even bother with non-prescription, too many glasses to juggle!

  • No, but that sounds super cool! I’d love to get your code!

  • Agree with wayfarers! Thanks Carmen!

  • Thanks Maggie!

    Oh Dear Bumblebees

  • I love the mirrored sunnies! I too wear glasses, but thankfully I can also wear contacts about half the time. I just have to give my eyes a break. Have you tried Ditto? You can do prescription sunnies through their subscription service and swap them out. I have a code if you want to try the first month for free. I use it for regular sunglasses and love it.

  • Taylor Kyes

    Love this! I can’t wear contacts either which sucks, but at least my eyesight is not too bad so I can get away with wearing sunglasses at the beach etc…


  • I think you’ll be fine; normal people can wear contacts for a lifetime. My eyes are just sucky.

  • I totally do that; it’s really distracting sometimes how reflective they are haha!

  • It is quite insane, not even my prescription ray bans with all the len fixing (polarized, non glare, etc) comes anywhere near that! But they’re oh so pretty.

  • Those are the dream! They’re insanely gorgeous.

  • There are definitely some good ones at Asos, I couldn’t stop eyeing them but knowing there’s no point for me to buy them!

  • Amazing timing!

  • Shauna C

    I’m such a fan of these types of sunnies! Hard to pick a fave!



  • Siffat Haider

    I’m absolutely obsessed with mirrored sunnies. The Dior So Real ones are my absolute fave!

  • So amazing sunglasses, so cool!

  • Awh no, sorry to hear about that! I wear contacts all the time, but I’m a little nervous now that my eyes will dry out in the future too. I have a pair of mirrored sunnies from Urban Outfitters though, they’re amazing!

    I have been seeing these sunglasses everywhere and wanted one too! Thanks for sharing all of these, I’m going to check the Mercury one out! The Dior one is gorgeous but the price is way too high and I personally would never spend that much on a pair of sunglasses!
