As we inch closer to the sunny season, we imagine that you’re just as excited for beach days as we are.

Sunglasses may be a chic and fashionable addition to your get-up, but they also serve a protective purpose and that’s why there are a few things you need to consider when getting the perfect pair for your beach trips.
That’s where Soek steps i. Check out our checklist for your must-have beach day sunnies and make sure that you’re safe, comfortable, and looking good when you show off your bond babe walk.
These sunnies were made for beach days
Ultraviolet Protection for Ultra-safety
It goes without saying that full UV protection should be the first thing you look at when shopping for beach-appropriate sunglasses. Sunglasses that are designed with UV 400 properties are proven to provide nearly 100% protection from harmful ultraviolet light rays.
Protection from ultraviolet rays is important because it prevents the formation of cataracts, macular degeneration, photokeratitis, and eye cancer, which may lead to permanent blindness.
All the sunnies in our Soek collection have UV 400 protection, so you’re safe no matter which design you opt for.
Go Big or Go Home
Live out your Audrey Hepburn à la Breakfast at Tiffany’s dreams with a stunning pair of oversized glasses. Not only are they a stylish addition to your beach look, but they also provide added sun protection. That’s right, the bigger the lens, the bigger the protection.
A Polarised View
Polarised sunglasses reduce eyestrain, distortion of images, and decrease the amount of glare from the sun and the water, making them the perfect accessory for your beach day. In addition to that, they also give you a true perception of colours, so you’ll enjoy an even more picture-perfect beach day.
Every pair of Soek glasses is polarised, which is why you can take them from the office to the beach, and any other sporting activities.
Float like a Butterfly
We’ve lost a pair of sunnies or two to wild waves or a wild pool party. The solution to this?
A pair of floating sunglasses. All Soek sunglasses are made with either bamboo, walnut, or white maple wood and if you remember the ending of Titanic, then you’ll know that wood floats.
Made with sustainably-sourced materials and they can float? We can’t think of a better reason to invest in these stunners.
Shades In the Perfect Shade
Choosing the colour of your lens is not all about fashion, but it also affects your view of your surroundings. Select your chosen lens carefully to ensure an enhanced beach experience.
Grey lens: These lenses reduce glare, especially off the water, and they are great for sunny and overcast days.
Brown/amber lens: These shades dim glare and brighten shadows. They increase depth perception and are ideal for when you're swimming in the ocean.
Green lens: They transmit colour more accurately and reduce glare while brightening shadows. Ideal for outdoor activities
Yellow lens: These provide greater clarity and filter out blue light that can cause eyestrain.
Red lens: These help your eyes adjust to contrast and reduce eye strain.
