Only two days before I was going on vacation I found out that my sunglasses were broken and therefore unwearable. For the longest time I used to wear these affordable H&M Ray-ban look-a-likes. I really liked the shape and look of these Clubmaster-like sunglasses but I never felt like spending a lot of money on an item like that. However, this time, when my H&M sunnies broke again, I decided to invest in a proper pair that won’t break within a couple of months. I ended up buying the sunglasses I had wanted for ever, the Ray-Ban Clubmaster in a brown colour. I’ve been wearing them every time I go outside since I got them. Since they are quite expensive and definitely not something I’d usually get without reading a lot about it, I thought it might be fun to share my experience and opinion about these glasses with you guys. So, if you’re interested in finding out what these sunnies are like and whether or not they are worth the splurge, make sure you continue reading!
The Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses come in a lot of different colours and sizes. I decided to go with the Original version since that’s the one I thought looked prettiest. This Original version of the Clubmaster comes in two sizes. I accidentally ordered both sizes, but ended up keeping the smaller one. The main difference between these two glasses is the size of the glasses themselves. Since I do have a relatively small head the small one suit my face better, but I do think it’s nice that they give you this option.
Aside from choosing a size, you also have to decide on which colour to get. This wasn’t a difficult decision for me. All of the glasses I’ve ever had have been brown so this time I went for that same colour again. On the Ray-Ban site they call this shade ‘turtoise’, that might be good to know.
The Clubmaster comes in a really high-quality protective case. I’m really glad it does, because this way I’m sure it will never end up breaking again because it’s laying loose in my bag. The case is black and has a golden stamp on it. It’s pretty basic but very sturdy and it feels very well made. Inside the case you also get a manual and a little wipe to clean your glasses from time to time.
Ray-Ban Clubmaster Classic Turtoise 49-21 – €142
The design of the Clubmaster sunnies is really classic and timeless. The glasses are square shaped, surrounded by a golden lining and the top part is brown in my case. In the middle it’s golden and on both sides you’ll find a golden detail as well. On the top right corner of one of the glasses you’ll find the Ray-Ban logo and that’s pretty much it for the design. It’s very simple but therefore it is very elegant. It’s a design that suits my style very well and is appropriate for any situation.
What I really like about these glasses is that it’s so much more well-made and sturdy than the H&M glasses I used to wear. When you wiggle it around you won’t hear the plastic moving. The nose-pads are also more sturdy and not as breakable as the ones of cheaper glasses and they are shaped in a more comfortable way. All of this makes these sunglasses look more luxurious, but they also make it a more comfortable pair to wear. I do think that it fits my face better, it stays in place better and the nose pieces aren’t as annoying.
When it comes to protecting your eyes from the sun I think these sunnies do an incredible job. The glasses make the world seem a bit more warm and have a slight green/brownish tint to them. This does create a very natural effect and at the same time it makes it way more comfortable to be outside. It really helps to make my eyes feel more at peace in the bright sunlight.
When it comes to the way they look on me and how they look in combination with my outfits I have to say I’m very positive. I’ve always been a fan of this style when it comes to sunglasses, so this definitely didn’t come as a surprise for me, but I’m a big, big fan of these sunglasses. I think they look really pretty and stylish on me and they really finish off every outfit. Whether you’re going for a more casual look or more of a fancy, put-together outfit, it works for everything.
I just really like how these sunglasses aren’t just a way to protect your eyes, they are also very fashionable. Obviously the protection part is way more important, but I’m glad that I like the look of them so much. When I was younger I used to think that sunglasses really didn’t look good on me at all, and I’m glad that that has changed.
Overall I’m a huge fan of my new Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses. I’m glad that I finally decided to invest in a proper pair of sunglasses. Not just because the quality is tremendously better and because it’s way more comfortable to wear. Also because I feel like it does a much better job at actually protecting my eyes from the sun. So, all in all I’m really happy I did splurge on this item and I honestly think that investing in a proper pair of sunglasses is an important and smart thing to do. It’s a lot of money all at once, but protecting your eyes is important so for me that makes it worth it!
With that being said it’s time to end today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s fashion review and be sure to let me know what kind of sunglasses you like to wear and whether or not you think it’s an item worth investing in!
