Words by Matt Zarandi
Look outside, that thing is called the sun! It’s been a long time coming but summer is finally here. The one staple accessory that is a must in anyone’s wardrobe at this time of year is a pair of sunglasses. Not only do these things finish off any summer look with an element of cool, they also serve a far more important purpose in protecting your eyes - never leave home without them!
