Our guide to sunglasses and tints

The right pair of sunglasses can make you look and feel cool. But if you want to take that to another level, consider sunglasses with color tints. Stylish and practical, tinted polarized sun glasses are a great way to customize your look and stand out from the crowd. At Blue Planet Eyewear, many of our sunglasses and sports sun glasses come with optional color tints. If you could use some guidance on which tint color might be right for you, here are a few hints and tips.

Dark colors, such as brown, gray/smoke, blue and green, are great for day-to-day use and general outdoor activities. Polarized sun glasses with a darker tint can help reduce eyestrain and cut glare in moderate-to-bright conditions. If color accuracy is important, opt for gray, blue or green tinted lenses; brown tinted lenses may cause minor color distortion. Here are just a few of our ranges which feature darker tinted lenses:

  • Blue Planet sunglasses featuring optional brown tinted lenses include the classic Amador and the fun Watson
  • Polarized sun glasses with classic smoke tint include our quirky Annica style and the aviator-like Wright
  • Green or blue tinted lenses are available on our distinctive Anchor and Teller

Lighter tint colors – such as gold, silver, rose gold and pink – are great for outdoor use and particularly for use as sports sun glasses, such as for skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports. As well as providing the usual protections associated with polarized sun glasses, lighter tinted lenses can help improve contrast and depth perception in comparison with darker tints. Here are some examples from our line: 

  • Blue Planet sunglasses offering stylish gold and silver tint options include our bold Arrow – Blackout style, and the streamline Sydney
  • Mirror and polarized sun glasses with the standout rose gold tint in our range include our chic cat-eye August frame and the stylish Luna.
  • Fun pink tinted lenses are available on our luxury Bailey and Rosa sunglasses.

If tinted color lenses are your thing, you’ve come to the right place. The Blue Planet Eyewear line includes all of the above colors as well as a number of other distinctive tints and combinations including gradient smoke, amber gold, ice blue, red mirror, and others.
