Sunglasses For St. Patrick’s Day

Sunglasses are not only protective gears to keep our eyes away from the harmful UV rays from the sun, but also fashionable accessories. For some people, sunglasses are fashion statements. They complement the attires of the wearers and make them look fancier. Sunglasses vary from plastics to such metals as titanium, which is lighter.  On some occasions, sunglasses are used for parties or special events. And St. Patrick’s Day is one of such special events.
