Looking to elevate your outdoor eyewear? No matter what frame shape you choose, you can add a mirror coating to reflect your personal style. Mirror finishes aren’t just a fashion statement – they also block out harmful UV rays and shield your eyes from damage.
What Are Mirror Sunglasses?
Mirrored sunglasses have lenses with a mirror finish coating. Since the coating is highly reflective, it greatly decreases the amount of light that passes through the lenses, allowing for better vision in certain conditions, including:
• High Altitudes
What Base Tints Work with a Mirror Finish?
Mirror finishes can be added to almost any Zenni frame. Zenni offers the following mirror finishes: silver, gold, rose gold, flame red, lavender, indigo blue, sky blue, and moss green. When ordering mirror sunglasses at Zenni, you will first need to select a base tint. You can choose from standard sunglasses tints, polarized tints, and gradient tints (only those tint options that say “with mirror” can be selected). A popular combination is a dark gray base tint or polarized gray tint with a silver mirror finish.
We also love to see when our Zennistas go bold! For a colorful and fresh look, try a gradient gray base tint with a lavender mirror finish! Just keep in mind that the color of the mirror coating will be slightly influenced by the base color of the polarized or tinted lens.
What Frames Look Best With a Mirror Tint?
Oversized, cat-eyes, hearts, geometric … basically any shape can be made into statement-making style with a mirror finish.
Small round frames have recently made a comeback in eyewear. These black frames are perfect with a gold mirror finish, giving you that 90s vibe that’s on-trend right now.
Cat-eye sunglasses are a must for anyone looking to make a statement with their glasses. These modern cat-eyes in pink are perfect with an amber or gray tint. Add a rose gold mirror finish and you have the perfect fashion-forward accessory.
Square frames have made a fashion revival in the last few years. These modern silver and black square frames are accented with a cool blue mirror finish.
One of our favorite shapes with mirrored lenses is the classic aviator. Because of their shape, these popular frames provide even better overall protection from the sun than other frame choices. Thanks to the versatility of the style, they work with any mirror/tint combo.
Can Mirror Sunglasses Be Prescription?
Absolutely! Any prescription sunglasses from Zenni can have a mirror finish added. Have your prescription information ready and simply enter it in during the checkout process.
