I gave up spending big money on big brand sunglasses years ago, after leaving a few too many pairs on the roof of my car. A sizable mistake! Up until recently I really missed the beautiful design aesthetic of the more pricey sunnies, until I discovered SōLEURS, an independent Australian eyewear creator and retailer offering everything the big guys do, at a fraction of the price.
Selecting a new pair (or two) of sunnies online with SōLEURS is incredibly easy. You can browse categories broken down by style. There is a design to suit every face shape including aviator, butterfly, cateye, rectangular, round and wayfarer.
If you’re apprehensive about selecting the perfect pair online, don’t be! SōLEURS offer a ‘Try On’ feature where by simply uploading an image of your face or using your webcam for a totally interactive 3D experience, you can see what the glasses will look like.
I originally selected Elanora in a cateye style, but after ‘trying them on’ I realised they sat too high above the bridge of my nose and ended up checking out with Paterson, a classic wayfarer design that fits perfectly. Of course looks are important, but so are craftsmanship and function.
Each pair of SōLEURS sunglasses is beautifully manufactured from high-quality Zyl (cellulose acetate) or stainless steel. They offer 100% UV protection thanks to polarised lenses made from either high-end, scratch resistant CR39 or polycarbonate which protect your eyes against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
SōLEURS sunglasses come with a 12-month warranty. The delivery experience adds to the SōLEURS way. I was blown away by how quickly I received my new shades and how wonderfully they were presented. Everything says ‘high-end’ except for the price. Still not convinced? You can change your mind after your purchase and take advantage of the SōLEURS 30-day free return policy – they even pay for the return shipping – no questions asked.
