Gradient lens, known to some as “ombre sunglasses”, are a type of sunglass lens tint that fades in intensity from top to bottom. The two-tone effect of gradient sunglasses gradually transitions from a dark to a light tint, or from a darker tint to a clear lens towards the bottom of the frame.

People love the timeless style of these lenses, but gradient glasses are just as functional as they are fashionable! This is because a great pair of gradient lens sunglasses serves multiple purposes. The gradual tint of gradient lens sunglasses allows for a clear line of sight while blocking harmful sun and light rays from above. Additionally, they limit glare and allow you to see more clearly when completing daily activities such as driving or spending time outdoors.

Gradient glasses are a great eyewear choice for both indoor and outdoor use. However, is there a huge difference between gradient and polarized lenses? While both of these sunglass types offer some similar benefits, there are a few environments where one option may be more suitable than the other.

Gradient lenses are best for protecting your eyes from light that comes from above, such as from the sun or a bright screen. This means that when you’re participating in tasks that require you to divide your attention, like between a computer screen and a whiteboard or between the road and your dash, you might reach for your gradient sunglasses.

On the other hand, polarized lenses offer more glare protection from high-glare or reflective environments such as near water, snow, sidewalks, and other reflective surfaces. So if you spend a lot of time outdoors playing sports, fishing, or in other high-glare outdoor environments, polarized lenses may be the more practical choice.

Whether you’re searching for a practical every-day-pair of sunglasses or a useful fashion eyewear accessory that completes almost any look, gradient sunglasses are a popular choice for many people. Still, are gradient sunglasses in style?

While style is subjective, gradient glasses have been a popular and time-honored style in women's fashion eyewear for decades. In fact, to see how fashionable gradient-tinted lenses are, look no further than high fashion brands such as Vogue, Ray Bans, and Chanel.
