2011 Sunglass Trend: Round Wayfarers

As I've been scouring the shelves for the latest and greatest in eyewear/sunglass trends this season. I've noticed quite the adoption of Round Wayfarers. As it comes by no suprise, since we've seen the explosion of wayfarers and round sunglasses. As we prepare for the Summer season here at OC Shades, we've made it a point to cover the P-3 style sunglasses in our catalog.

A bit of sunglass history: p-3 Round Wayfarer Sunglasses

First introduced in the 1930's. The P-3 Round Wayfarer Sunglasses derives its name from the actual eyewear manufacturers, and it refers to the classic style that falls between oval and round shapes with slight wayfarer characteristics. The top of the frame is round with slightly pointed temples and finished with rounded bottoms. Activist such as Andy Warhol & John Lennon favored these styles.
