Those kind of big sunglasses have been in fashion here since at least last summer, if not earlier ... and we hardly have any sun!

The probability of all three girls crossing their legs in the same direction should be less than 12.5%. Does anyone else notice the actual occurence of multiple people crossing their legs in the same direction seems to be much higher?
It is easier to sit this way, you know, like spoons in the drawer. Trick is everyone has to change leg crossing direction at the same time. 1, 2, 3, switch!

There are quite a few girls around the east coast wearing them, sadly. Lots of people wear sunglases here, but I've noticed that most girls here tend to wear sunglasses with white frames-and they look pretty good too.
Why sadly? I still don't see what's wrong with them? Probably don't see as much on the east coast because not everyone needs to wear sunglasses year round, so a pair lasts longer...no point buying a new pair if the old ones are still good. It makes more sense than those tiny John Lennon type glasses that let all the sun around them. They sure couldn't get any smaller, so they had to get bigger.

As you guys know, I'm in the eye of the storm. The oversized sunglasses look seems to be phasing out somewhat here. (We're like, bored with it, already.) The wave will be propagating outward toward the rest of the world over the next few months and I'm guessing we'll hardly see any bug-eyed bobble-heads anywhere by next summer.
Wow, if the wave propagates outward we can expect something similar to Tunguska event south of Australia. Do you have any data about the propagation speed, so that we can evaluate when to start data logging?

I really think it depends on the specific pair on the individual woman. Some look really good, some look really bad. Ugg boots on the other hand..........

Sadly because they are god-awful ugly. Its like those big ugly glasses from the early 80's. Small sunglasses have never been in style. (At least, I've never seen anyone with small sunglasses)

What I hate are the god aweful platform shoes so many women have been wearing. I think it's going out of style finally though.

Hey, those didn't seem so ugly in the 80s! Besides, that's WAY more practical for sunglasses than regular glasses. I really don't care if I look like a bug if I can keep my eyes open outside in summer.

No, you dont need to look like a bug to keep your eyes open in the summer. There are plenty of glasses that are a reasonable size and do their job.

Those you're calling "good" might look fine on a guy. They are men's sunglasses. And way too transparent to do any good. The ones on top actually look like women's sunglasses, and are dark enough to block out sunlight. Sorry, when it comes to my eyes and seeing where I'm going, I take function over fashion (and don't share your taste in fashion there anyway).

There not men's sunglasses. I've seen lots and lots of girls wearing aviators. Also, the lense comes in different colors. So thats just one of many possibilities. Some are full on dark, some are silver like a mirror. Just do a google image on aviators and you'll see a wide variety.

...how do you think they became a trend?
I wouldn't know because I don't watch television nor do I know anything about celebrities or anything surrounding it.

:rofl: I don't know - he sure does post a lot of pictures of beautiful women! Cyrus is a fashion, um, guru? Nazi? Wacko? As his sign off says, check out his fashion tips. (Actually, he gives pretty good fashion advice - especially for an engineer :cool: ! Jason, you got that job selling clothes, right? I think you'd appreciate his point of view, probably.)

Up until the end of sophmore year of college, I was totally clueless on fashion. My friend got me into it when I thumbed through some of his GQ magazines.

Its really quite interesting stuff though. It trains you to have an eye for things. If I need a shirt or pants for example, I can walk through the store and in 5 mins know whats crap and whats ok to buy, what will fit me and what wont just by looking at it. I dont have to waste my time. There are also certain things that just dont go bad. Thats why I bought rayban sunglasses. They were classic in the 60's, they came back in the 80's, and they'll come back again in a few summers. They just dont go bad, so they are worth buying.

People like to buy things that are the current FAD. Then you have something you'll never wear again same time next year. You got suckered into buying junk.

And yes people do occasionally say it looks like I stepped out of the 80's.
