Welcome to the first proper B Sunglasses Round-up of 2017. Last week, we just wished everyone a new year and said a little about what we were looking forward to in the new year. Our plan is to keep up what we started last year and bring you the biggest sunglasses and eyewear news each week, as well as let all of our customers know about special deals and huge competitions coming up here at B Sunglasses. This week is particularly exciting as we’re talking about all of the incredible giveaways we’re rolling out in January!
Geometric Sunglasses Are Going to be Huge This Year

We had already predicted that geometric sunglasses were going to get more and more popular in 2017, so we were pleased to see Ashley Benson’s Instagram snap this week showing off her beautiful geometric sunglasses. Geometric sunglasses were huge in 2016 and they show no signs of slowing down. And when stars like Pretty Little Liars actress Ashley Benson put up photos on the internet of them showing off their sunglasses, interest in whichever style they’re wearing always picks up. And it’s with good reason, as which woman wouldn’t want to look a little like Benson in the photograph above?
If you’re interested in getting your own pair of geometric sunglasses, then you should check out our entire geometric sunglasses collection, but here are a few amazing styles to whet your appetite:
January Giveaway Extravaganza
It’s no secret that January is the longest, most difficult month for most of us, so we thought we’d bring a little sunshine and joy to our social media followers. This month, B Sunglasses is giving away a huge range of incredible sunglasses from the world’s top designers, as well as other products from our favourite eyewear brands.
The first giveaway was this Polaroid duffle bag. All our Facebook followers had to do was tag a friend in the post along with their favourite emoji. Colin Bright won our hearts with the Vulcan ‘live long and prosper’ emoji on the fourth of January and the Polaroid duffle bag is on its way to him!
For our second giveaway, we offered these stunning Ray-Ban® 4221 sunglasses, taken from our extensive Ray-Ban® sunglasses collection. This giveaway proved very popular, and all we asked was for people to like us on Facebook and share the original giveaway post. Claire Johnson, was the lucky winner, and these sunglasses are on their way to her. There really is nothing quite like a new pair of Ray-Ban®!
Then our third giveaway – and this is all just in the first week of January! – was an absolute cracker: these Targa Design Cazal Aviators, which have a black, racing-inspired frame. All our followers had to do was like the post and tag two friends in it. Anyone who also followed us on Twitter and Instagram had an extra chance to win.
And that’s it for this week’s giveaways. But we intend to keep these amazing prizes up throughout the month – hopefully cheering everyone up! If you’d like to make sure you’re in with a chance of winning, then make sure you like and follow us on all of our social media accounts:
Brand Spotlight: Ray-Ban®
This week, Jake wrote a brilliant brand spotlight on our blog looking at Ray-Ban®, the biggest sunglasses designer brand in the world. You can read the entire article here, but I wanted to put a shorter spotlight into this round-up as well. Ray-Ban® is inarguably the biggest, most successful eyewear brand in the world, and for good reason. Beyond the stunning designs, which I’ll go into in a minute, it’s the quality of Ray-Ban® products that stands out most of all. No other designer makes sunglasses or glasses nearly as tough and enduring as Ray-Ban®. So when you get a pair of Ray-Ban® sunglasses, you know you’ll have them for many years to come.
To talk about Ray-Ban® designs is also to talk about its history – the two are inextricable. Ray-Ban® started off its life in 1937 when it was founded by Bausch & Lomb, the huge American medical and eye health company. Back in 1929 Bausch & Lomb had been asked to develop sunglasses for US Army Air Corps that could protect their eyes from the harsh blue and white high up in the clouds when they were flying. By the time these new sunglasses were ready, Ray-Ban® was about to be launched, so the two came out together and Ray-Ban® started out with one of the most iconic designs in history: the Aviator.
After the Aviator, Ray-Ban® also developed the Wayfarer and the Clubmaster. The brand seemed to have an uncanny ability to come up with new iconic styles. So many other designers have tried to copy Aviators, Clubmasters, and Wayfarers over the years, but they’re never quite like the originals. So have a look through the Ray-Ban® collection today you’ll see for yourself why Ray-Ban® has been at the top of its game for so long, and why it’s going to stay at the top spot for a long long time.
And that’s all the sunglasses news we have time for of this week. Keep an eye on our social media channels for our giveaways and come back next week for another B Sunglasses Round-up.
