Ironically enough, there should be no polarization within the debate on whether one should have polarized lens while travelling on water. Not only do they reduce glare as the sun reflects off the surface of the water, they help allow you to see objects more clearly. Whether it is an isle up ahead, or a school of dolphins circling your boat, they make the difference between just seeing something versus experiencing it.
The Rayban Classic Wayfarers with Polarized Lens are my top pick: practical, affordable and frankly, a trusted classic. Not only are they one of the most recognizable styles in the history of sunglasses, they are resurfacing as the go-to for musicians, celebrities, and as the company boasts: “anyone with an impeccable fashion sense”.
They are sturdy, which I prefer when travelling by water and sit quite comfortably on the face. Coming in just under $200, these fit within most budgets and are available in five colours. Personally, my favourite is tortoise shell as I find it subtler and pairs with everything, but I may be bias considering everything I own that can be tortoise shell, is tortoise shell.
These sunglasses can complement any wandering attire, from hiking a mountain, to a more polished look exploring the port in the latest J. Crew Spring Collection, you can be sure that on or off these make the perfect statement to any outfit.
