The best Halloween costumes come with sunglasses. Obviously. Here are some Halloween costume ideas  for men and women that feature sweet, sweet shades.

Dressing up as the first lady is one thing; dressing up as the first lady in sunglasses at night is quite another. Grab a group of gal pals and sport many of Melania’s “shady” nighttime looks.

Grab a friend, your pork pie hat, and some science to cook up a Halloween night o’ fun as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.

All you need are some black wayfarer sunglasses, a black polo, some jeans from your dad’s closet, and a really good-looking blonde, and you’ve got yourself a costume.

Bucket hat, check. Floral Acapulco shirt, yes. Yellow-tinted, oversized aviators, yup. Now all you need is your buddy Dr. Gonzo and a suitcase full of fun, and you’re ready for the ultimate “business” trip.

Ok, sure, the heading for this one is beyond cheesy, but your Tony Montana costume won’t be.

Iconic sunglasses make for an iconic costume.

This trio isn’t just about  putting together the right the headgear, hair, and shades; you’ll also need to pick up and put on a particularly easy-going, spontaneous, roll-with-the-flow kind of attitude.

Speaking of trios, here’s a classic.  Too cliche?  Never. If you must change things up, then be this crew after retirement. Or, maybe as zombies. Zombies are never cliche, especially when they’re wearing sunglasses.

The Best Looking Sport Sunglasses for Women

Let’s face it; most sport sunglasses look pretty lame.  Many manufacturers fall into the same rut of boring wrap designs, basic colors, and small, lifeless frames. Yawn.  

If you’re looking for a great pair of performance shades that also look freakin’ adorable, then you’ve come to the right place.  Check out our favorite sunglasses manufacturers that deliver sunglasses that are built for performance and designed to turn heads.

Native Eyewear Polarized Sunglasses

Yeah, sure, we’re a bit biased here considering Native’s name and the fact that they’re based in Colorado.  We wouldn’t suggest them, though, if they didn’t also make some great looking sunglasses that are made to keep up with an active lifestyle.

Kaenon Polarized Sunglasses

Talk about style and performance in one incredible package.  With innovative technology and superior craftsmanship, Kaenon shades are well worth the investment.  Not only do they hold up to the toughest of challenges, but they also look great, and many models will easily take you from the trail or waves to a patio happy hour or front porch brunch.

Costa Del Mar Polarized Sunglasses

Designed for those who love the water, Costa sunglasses have particularly attractive designs that come in some head-turning cuts and colors. Like Native Eyewear and Kaenon, all of Costa’s sunglasses are polarized.  Costa also backs their sunglasses for life. Whether you’re crushing some waves or chilling at your cute neighbor’s backyard bbq, you’re going to look and feel good in a pair of Costas.

Oakley Sunglasses

A crowd-pleaser for decades, Oakley knows how to deliver fashion-forward designs without compromising quality and performance. Always changing, always creating, and always offering a wide range of styles and price-points, a gal can never go wrong in a pair of Oakleys.

Stay Cool When It’s Hot :: What to Wear Hiking in the Desert

Yes, the desert is hot.  Really freakin’ hot.  It’s also an incredibly beautiful place to hike.  When preparing for a desert hike, always remember these three things:

1.  No cotton.  Ever.  Wear lightweight, breathable, quick-drying materials.

2.  Always remember head-to-toe sun protection. From sweat-proof sunscreen to UV-rated sunglasses, always think about UV protection.

3.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Make drinking water easy and accessible.

Here’s a basic outfit for hiking in the desert:

Desert Hiking Outfit

 

UV Protective Long-Sleeve Shirt: 

Button-fronts are good because they’re easy to get on and off, you can leave them open for ventilation, and the sleeves are easy to roll up.  

Full-Back Tank:

A light colored, quick-drying top is a must.  Sleeveless tops are nice because they provide the most airflow, but choose wisely as you consider where your pack will rest.  Something with a full back is the most comfortable, and avoid thin or spaghetti straps.  Cap and short-sleeved shirts are also great. Remember to avoid cotton. 

Low-Profile Sunglasses:

Always bring a great pair of lightweight and breathable sunglasses.  Avoid metal frames that will get hot, and stay away from large designs that can trap uncomfortable moisture and dust.  Native Eyewear, Oakley, and Under Armour make some great sunglasses for hiking. The outfit above features a pair of Native Eyewear Dash XP shades, which have a rimless bottom for plenty of ventilation. 

Sport Sunscreen:

Sunscreen is so important, even when it’s cloudy.  Choose a type that is made for athletes and isn’t greasy or heavy. It needs to be sweat-proof, but you don’t want something that will attract dirt or clog your pores.  

Hydration Pack:

Invest in a good, low-profile hydration pack that will make drinking plenty of water easy.  When it’s not easy, you’re more likely to forget or procrastinate.  That’s never a good thing. 

Breathable Hiking Shorts:

A lightweight, quick-drying pair of hiking shorts will keep you cool and comfortable.  Some hikers like biking or yoga shorts, which work, but those can be hot or cause chafing if they do not fit perfectly.

Lightweight, Breathable Hiking Shoes:

Breathable shoes with grippy rubber traction are a must.  Pair with lightweight, moisture-wicking hiking socks.  Don’t hike without socks.  Your feet will sweat and blister. Ouch.

 

Other Desert Hiking Things to Consider

Some other things to consider:

  • A sun hat that fits comfortably over your sunglasses
  • Lightweight, quick-drying hiking socks
  • Lip balm with sun protection
  • A bandana to wick moisture when it’s dry and keep you cool when it’s soaked in water
  • Breathable, moisture-wicking sports bra and underwear
