How About Kids Wearing Aviator Sunglasses?

  • Pin it

I made no secret of my passion for Aviator sunglasses over the years (and the articles). You know me well and, by now, you know how I like my shades. At the same time, however, motherhood has a strong grip on my fashionista self and the reality roots it has spread into my stylish alter ego cannot be denied.

In short: I found these retro Aviator style sunglasses for kids. I’m not saying they look unattractive! Au contraire, I think they’re perfectly tuned to the latest trends and fashappeals. And as much as I treasure my sunglasses and the protection they offer, I’m having serious second thoughts about shades for kids. Do they even need them? Why didn’t we had shades growing up? Would you make your kid wear sunglasses? (Gap via)

K you must have been reading my mind. I was just having this exact argument with myself as I walked my Baby this morning. I don’t know where I stand yet…

Kids NEED sunglasses! UVA and UVB rays are just as damaging – if not more – to children’s eyes than to adult eyes. Check out this article on the subject:

My kids wear sunglasses. They don’t always like it, but I let them each pick a pair they like. So they wear them more now.

So have you made up your mind already, Heather? I still have doubts, even in the light of Lucy’s arguments I keep thinking that sunglasses and kids don’t go together that well. Maybe because they’re so active and the shades would fall off pretty often, thus rending them useless?
