Race weekend is here! Whether you’re partying it up in the Snake Pit or hanging out in the stands, it’s time to roll out your summer fashion with those fun shades, extra sunscreen and checkered clothing. We know Indy has some fun race day looks, but don’t forget those all important sunglasses. Sunglasses are a must have, so you don’t have to squint at the main stages in the bright sun, but also protect your eyes from those pesky UV rays. Sunglasses are a small accessory, but they make a huge impact on your on your face and style.
Here are our top 5 shades that will elevate your Indy 500 fashion while also keeping your eyes safe in the sun this weekend.
Bold frames in darker colors like black and brown have always been popular but don’t miss out on this funky style. Sunglasses with clear frames go well with almost any kind of complexion and outfit! So go wild with this fun and trendy style!
Always a classic, always in style. We love tortoiseshell sunglasses because they are a perfect neutral that can go with even the wackiest race day fashion. You can find this style in any frame shape, perfect for both men and women. This pattern shows up in a lot of different colors and frame styles, so the options are limitless!
We love the quirky retro style of round sunglasses. Channel your inner John Lennon, or add a fun twist to your look. Go over-sized with some Gucci frames, or bright and funky with smaller, more colorful frames. Bonus, these all will still provide UV protection!
Originally invented for Navy pilots in WWII, there’s a reason these classic aviators have stood the test of time. Polarized Aviators from Ray-Ban are still a go to choice for many for the clearest vision on the sunniest of days. Other brands have also adopted this wildly popular silhouette so its safe to say this summer fashion staple is here to stay.
Super colorful mirrored lenses are a fun way to mix up your sunglasses look for race day. We love the shiny colorful mirrored look that can go with any frame. Brighten up summer with these popular mirrored frames from Costa, Nike and Puma.
