What better way to close out your summer than heading out to Black Rock City for this year’s Burn? Pack up your gear and head out to the desert in Nevada for a week-long experience you’ll never forget. Our favorite part about the festival? The fashion, of course! Known for its creative and out-of-this-world costumes, Burning Man is the perfect place for rocking a look as unique as you – and no look is complete without some sunglasses to protect you from the desert dust storms and blazing sun.

Accessorize your Burning Man costume with the trendiest summer eyewear from Zenni Optical. Whether you’re going for something futuristic, post-apocalyptic, or even whimsical, there’s always a pair (or pairs!) of sunglasses that’ll add the perfect finishing touch.


Metallic, rounded silhouette frames are iconic at Burning Man. Ideal for accessorizing that classic Steampunk look that Burners love, these frames are a sleek and trendy way to finish off your costume. Let your accessories do the talking with metallic accents, structured hats, fringe, and desert-approved combat boots.
