We're in the 21st century's second decade now, and the people of this time are more conscious about everything while rolling with the times. Let us give you the perfect example: Fashion.

In that fashion aesthetic, we've picked an all-time favourite accessory to discuss: Sunglasses.

Sunglasses have been in fashion for aeons irrespective of how our fashion aesthetic is. From materials like smoky quartz to Cerium metal to wood for the frames, we've landed on the perfect fit: Acetate sunglasses.

"But isn't acetate plastic? And how is it life-changing anyways?"

We've got answers.

Acetate is plastic, but did you know it's manufactured from raw cellulose? The cellulose used for acetate is extracted from cotton fibres and wood pulp, making it a renewable resource! Now you can rest easy because this one isn't going into a landfill, we promise.

And talking about how it's life-changing, we'll give you a one-line history lesson regarding the same. It was brought in the '40s as a reform for manufacturing sunglasses without the usual plastic that harms the environment. Pretty cool for the old school, literally.

But that's not it. There are a lot more perks to adopting acetate sunglasses for fashion eyewear, listed as follows: -

Super light & Hypoallergenic

Acetate sunglasses do not pierce over your ears and nose bridge like conventional plastic or metal. Wearing these sunglasses almost feels like nothing. Moreover, acetate sunglasses are also hypoallergenic in nature; they do not cause any sort of skin irritations.

Flexible & Durable

Acetate as material on its own can withstand stress and is not brittle easily. So, if you are worried about accidental drops, we'd recommend switching to acetate sunglasses.

Affordable yet Long-Lasting

Not every product that lasts longer has to cost you a fortune, especially sunglasses. And that's why acetate sunglasses are in. Acetate sunglasses have good longevity and are cost-effective.

Sustainably fashionable

It's 2022. Fast fashion is out; slow fashion is in. Slow fashion is crucial in maintaining sustainability, and acetate sunglasses are just the right fit. You can find various colour and pattern options for frames for your acetate sunglasses, and moreover, these are 100% recyclable and biodegradable as well!

Versatile styling options

Acetate sunglasses are significantly versatile when it comes to styling! Acetate has a specific chemical makeup that gives out this semi-transparent, minimalistic and chic look that literally comes in all shapes and sizes. Because of such a tangible versatility, acetate sunglasses and eyewear is trending all around the globe.

We'd even give you a list of celebs to stalk today who rock acetate sunglasses: Chris Evans, Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingine, Dan Levy, Gary Oldman and who can forget about Robert Downey Jr. II!?
