As you know, 4th of July is a favorite holiday at Zenni: We love fireworks, parades and spending time with family. The best part, though, is the outdoor cookouts. Chicken, burgers, even tofu tastes better when cooked on a grill. Naturally, you’ll want to look your best while hanging out around the grill, so we’ve selected some frames that are awesome as sunglasses:
You want a classic look? We have one for you. These full-rim, tortoise shell frames with metal temples give you a serious look while also protecting your eyes against glare. If you are looking to not shock your relatives during a family barbeque, grab these and impress everyone with your maturity.
Another classic look for men, and these are hypoallergenic, even. This means that you probably won’t have to worry about these frames triggering a rash, though you’ll still need to take your Claritin if being outdoors in the summer gives you the sniffles. But seriously: These are the frames to wear if you want to be taken seriously. With tinted lenses, you’ll look like you work for a government agency.
If you are the type of person who oveheats easily, check out these cool blue/green frames, then go find a nice hammock under a shady tree. These frames will look great with just about every skin tone: Tan, pale or somewhere in-between. Classic styling and a solid color also allows you to wear these just about anywhere from the beach to the boardroom.
These tortoiseshell frames and gold temples offer a sleek, sophisticated look for a cookout. Plus, the smaller frames give you sun protection while letting friends and family see more of your beautiful face while catching up over a plate of food.
Hey there, glamorpuss! If you want to attract attention, you could do a lot worse than these rhinestone-studded full rim frames. Pair these with some serious red lipstick or gloss, and you’ll be the talk of the cookout. They’ll also look great if you decide to hit the bars later in the evening.

The Fourth of July is one of our absolute favorite holidays at Zenni, both because it’s so much fun for so many people, and because it gives everyone a good reason to buy patriotic glasses and sunglasses. If you love wearing colorful apparel on the Fourth, our selection of red, white, and blue glasses may make you see fireworks.
We start things off with glasses that everyone can love. They capitalize on the fact that the Fourth is one of those amazing holidays on which people can wear whatever outlandish clothing they want as long as it matches the holiday’s colors. And these frames are big on color, full of the blue, white, and red you love.
However, most people opt for more versatile, subdued glasses that are appropriate everyday-wear and fit the style of festivities on The Fourth. Their on-trend blocky shape also means you’ll stand out as much as you want to in them, but on your terms.
People think of red as the color of The Fourth, but blue glasses also play well on a hot summer day. The smooth transition to white in the above frames gives them a slightly retro feel that pairs will with a bathing suit or a BBQ apron.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t get more ‘Merican than red and white stripes, a design lifted right off our flag. If you can’t stomach some Where’s Waldo-style Hammer Pants for The Fourth, these glasses are your next best option. And with black temples, you don’t have to relegate them to your holidays-only section of accessories.
The Fourth of July commemorates our country’s independence, a solemn and proud moment. But the holiday has also grown to be about friends, family, and sharing a good time. Take advantage of great glasses that look amazing and are affordable to make the holiday that much better for you this year.

Host country Brazil faced against Croatia in Sao Paulo yesterday, kicking off the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the biggest international tournament and sporting spectacle in the world. You may catch World Cup fever even if you have no interest in soccer. These hot new frames features some of the brightest colors and most exciting frames, embracing the energy and spirit of the World Cup and giving you a chance to root for your favorite teams.
You can’t go wrong supporting the home team. The U.S.A. earned a tournament berth again, but they have a tough pool that includes Germany. They must fair well against both the Germans and the impressive Portugal to exit pool play with a strong record. However, every year we perform a little better. Maybe it’s our time to break out on the world stage.
And who can forget the flaming orange (orange is the “queen’s color” in The Netherlands) uniforms of the Dutch? They played an exciting tournament in 2010 and lost in the finals to Spain. The team looks strong this year in more reserved uniforms, so if you want to root for someone else, you could do worse than The Netherlands. And bonus perk: you’ll have a hot pair of glasses after the tournament.
A soft green/turquoise like this doesn’t lend itself to the rabid fandom you see in the stands, sporting full body paint. But it does give you the option to support a number of teams – especially the Ivory Coast – with green in their unis, and they might work out better with the rest of your wardrobe in the future.
Dark blue is similarly versatile both in terms of team and future fashion. Bosnia, Brazil’s away kit, Croatia, and a host of other team uniforms all include a royal blue of some variety.
And then there are those of you who won’t pass up on the fashion of Zenni’s hottest new arrivals and deals at great prices, whether or not they resemble a World Cup team. Throw on these black and yellow frames and somebody is sure to confuse you with a fan.
Or you could take it to another level and use your glasses to support polar bears, snow leopards, and other endangered species, similar to what Iran did with its jerseys, which support the endangered Asiatic Tiger. However, you enjoy the World Cup, be sure to take advantage of Zenni’s great fashions and styles.

They say trends go in cycles, and these amazing vintage-looking glasses are a testament to the fact that what’s old can be new, and not just new but among the hottest styles in the fashion world. But don’t be fooled; these ain’t your grannies cracked ol’ spectacles. These new versions of classic styles are ready to take your face-fashion game to the next level.
You know a specific era of vintage fashion is back in when you look at those styles and don’t even think of them as old, but rather as established trends now. Heavy black frames? Winged cat-eye lines? It all seems perfectly on-trend, despite pulling from the 1940s and their comeback in the 1960s.
The difference is that if you dug through your parents’ and grandparents’ boxes of old stuff to pull out their musty glasses, you would find frames that look quite similar to these new options, minus the moths and cob webs, but that are also heavier, less comfortable, and slightly less refined.
Despite these differences, because they are so clearly paying homage to frames from generations past, you can also pair these glasses with actual vintage garments mixed together with new trends to create your own unique, retro style.
Vintage styles can pose a challenge if their design and aesthetic are unfamiliar and and you aren’t sure what styles work best for you. One great way to find the right vintage-look glasses for you is to browse Pinterest boards of vintage style from the 1940s and 1970s. Other online resources that present historic fashion images work well too. Look for people who have a similar face shape to yours to get a sense of what frame shapes are best for your face.
However, you don’t have to worry as much with these vintage glasses, because their unique shapes and lines are more forgiving, since they are less familiar to others as well. So you can more than get away with a pair of glasses you love, even if they aren’t technically ideal for your face.
The timing is perfect for vintage-looking frames. It’s warm, and summer trends couldn’t be friendlier to a little nostalgia, putting your hot new vintage glasses from Zenni precisely on-trend.
