The Pit Viper sunglasses brand, which specializes in eye wear, is headquartered in Utah, Salt Lake City in the United States. However, their style seems to have spread as far as la belle province, here in Quebec. I have seen them worn in the streets of the metropolis as well as on a few famous faces like that of Jamie Watts of Dual Occupancy. If you’re familiar with the brand, you may have thought, “Oh, I don’t think I can wear the Pit Vipers sunglasses because I’m not an avid mountain biker,” and you lift a good point. Nonetheless, like all fashion trends that make a big statement, this is a high risk, high reward situation. So, if you feel confident, I invite you to try them, but only after reading these few tips. You’ll have a fabulous look all summer long!
Fully embrace the kitsch style
Igloo fest didn’t happen this year, but I think these goggles would go great with any ’80s snow ensemble you wear to such an event. Now that it’s summer, I don’t recommend you wear winter clothes for the sake of wearing those glasses. However, we can take up the idea of wearing neon colors, spandex and even adopting mullet in order to integrate them into a completely vintage look. As we say in English, go big or go home! That’s the kind of mindset you need to have when wearing Pit Viper sunglasses.
Mix the sporty style with a softer or romantic style
Personally, I’m a bit shy and I don’t like attracting attention. If you’re like me, I recommend pairing a floral print or a little beach dress with your oversized sports glasses. I tried this with one of my cottage core style dresses and was pretty happy with the overall effect. I affectionately call this look “Carmen Campaign moves to LA”. In short, California, here we come.
Pretend to love the outdoors
You may not ride a mountain bike, but who says you can’t dress like you do? After all, bike shorts are in season! While you’re enjoying this confirmed trend, why not add some mountain bike sunglasses to the mix? Don’t feel too embarrassed to wear the clothes without playing sports: fashion is a game of dressing up anyway.
If you are still not convinced…
If none of the above suggestions appeal to you or you still don’t feel brave enough to wear Pit Viper sunglasses, don’t worry! You can still enjoy this look in the privacy of your dentist’s office. Pit Vipers are not only a bold fashion statement with tremendous versatility, they are also incredibly utilitarian!
