When you’re looking for the most profitable products to sell wholesale you can never go wrong with a great selection of sunglasses, and the best style of wholesale sunglasses to stock are the ones that always seem to stay current and fashionable. Just as wholesale rings, earrings and necklaces in silver and gold retain their popularity year after year, two long lasting sunglasses designs that have withheld the tests of the ever-changing fashion trends and fads are the iconic Wayfarer and Aviators designs.
Introduced and manufactured by Ray Ban in the 1950’s, the plastic frames and distinctive silver metal piece above reflective lenses wider at the top than the bottom combine to make Wayfarers one of the most recognizable sunglasses styles of all time. For the past fifty years, iconic actors and musicians have made the traditional black-framed Wayfarer popular in modern culture and synonymous with a look of cool sophistication.
Available in a wide variety of colors and lens tints and featuring spring hinge arms for added comfort, this vintage type of wholesale sunglasses is a popular choice among both men and women.
Originally designed to reduce glare and protect the eyes of wholesale ring aviator pilots in the Second World War, the classic teardrop shape, reflective lenses and thin metal frames made Aviators the popular choice among Hollywood legends and average wearers. The convex shape designed to cover a large part of the eye area to reduce light from entering at any angle makes this a practical and sophisticated eyewear style that appeals to both men and women.
Part of the reason these particular wholesale sunglasses have endured has as much to do with using the latest technology to create lenses that provide superior eye protection as it does with the appeal of their classic, timeless looks. Green lenses, common to the Wayfarer brand, absorb 85% of visible light and prevent most blue light exposure creating good clarity and colour contrast, while brown lenses provide greater contrast and clarity in low light conditions. A chemical immersion process in plastic gradient Ray Ban lenses also provide effective transitional shading from light to dark.
Polarized lenses typical in many Aviator style of sunglasses help to reduce glare by blocking horizontal light off water, snow and roads, decreasing eye strain while increasing the detail you can see. With the added benefit of maximum UV protection, these lenses are an excellent choice for casual wearers, drivers and those who enjoy both water and winter sports.
Don’t overlook the importance of a secure and comfortable fit when you’re choosing among these popular types of attractive wholesale sunglasses. Even less expensive versions of designer eyewear should be made to sit evenly on your nose and behind your ears and close on your face around your eyebrows, but far enough removed that your eyelashes don’t rub against the lenses.
Whichever style of wholesale sunglasses you choose, you need to look for a UV protection sticker that ensures your eyes will be protected from harmful UVB and UVA rays from the sun all year round. Look for a lens description of maximum UV 400 or 100% protection that can also accommodate prescription lenses.
