Sunglasses online-shop at Mister Spex UK
Nowadays, sunglasses are more than just protection from sun light. As fashion accessories and eye-catchers, they are the ideal companion for any outfit. Nevertheless, their most important task is to protect the eyes from harmful UV-rays and distracting glare.
The tinted lenses decrease the light transmission to the eyes of the wearer. Their primary purpose is to protect the eyes from unpleasant or harmful effects of sun light. Hence, ideal sunglasses block the ultraviolet proportion of sun light and decrease the diffused light due to the lens’s form and size as well as an optimized frame.

Choose from several lens options
Many different options and possibilities are available to you while choosing your sunglasses. You may choose from the following lens options:
1. Classic sunglasses
Classic sunglasses combine usefulness with design. The perfect design will complement your face and top off any outfit. In combination with high quality lenses, an excellent protection from harmful UV-rays is guaranteed. Classic sunglasses usually are offered with lenses in an 85% tint in grey, green or brown. At Mister Spex the tinted lenses are included in the price. This also applies to foldable sunglasses in the product range of Mister Spex.
2. Polarised sunglasses
If you’re searching for special protection, then polarised sunglasses are the right option for you. So called polarised light, which arises from reflections, can lead to an impairment of sight. In this case, classic sunglasses quickly reach their limits – they are not able to eliminate the glare. Only special polarising filters can block the reflected, polarised light with their special structure and enable glare-free, high-contrast vision.
Sunglasses with a polarising filter can block reflecting and possibly blinding light. A special film applied to the lenses surface absorbs the light reflections. This not only protects the eyes from UV-rays, but also facilitates seeing at difficult light conditions e.g. while driving on damp streets or at low sun elevations.

3. Mirrored sunglasses
Mirrored sunglasses have a coloured coating applied to the front of the lens. This makes the sunglasses non-transparent from the outside. This mirroring of the lenses protects the eyes from strong reflections. Thus, mirrored sunglasses are far more than just a fashionable accessory.
4. Prescription sunglasses
Those who have poor eyesight and don’t want to wear contact lenses can choose from a selection of sunglasses with prescription lenses. Thanks to modern technology, many sunglasses models can be glazed with individual prescription values. Several factors determine if a model is suitable to be glazed with prescription values or not:
• The frame should not be bent too much.
• The lenses should not be too big
• The material should be suitable for glazing
• Depending on your values, some sunglasses will be suitable for glazing and some will not. For example, models like the Aviator and Cockpit can only be fitted with prescription lenses with values up to -4,0 !
You’re searching for prescription ready sunglasses? Here you’ll find our prescription sunglasses selection.
5. Photochromic sunglasses
Depending on the temperature and the amount of UV-rays, photochromic lenses become darker. They absorb 100% of UVA – and UVB rays. These self-tinting lenses in brown or grey, (quickly) become darker during high light intensity and (slowly) become transparent again when the light intensity decreases.
The lenses have been manufactured in a way that lets them change from transparent in interior spaces, to a dark tint in the sunlight. This makes them superior to classic lenses. All prescription ready sunglasses can be glazed with self-tinting lenses for a reasonable upcharge of £120.
How to find the most suitable sunglasses
Foremost, In order to find the best sunglasses for you, you should be familiar with your face shape. How to determine your face shape is explained in further detail here.
The ideal sunglasses must harmonise with your face shape:
if you have a round face, it is important to choose sunglasses that give your face more contour. This effect can be achieved with angular frames, as they make your face shape look more prominent. Furthermore, you should choose delicate frames, which visually lengthen your face.
People with square faces should choose the contrary. Curved and round sunglasses will soften your face. If your face is also long, high lenses are the right option for you, as these will visually shorten your face.
Heart-shaped or triangular faces harmonise with frames that follow the lateral contour of your face. Hence, we invite you to choose frames, which are wider at the top and become narrower towards the bottom. Delicate, full-rim frames also suit you well.
If you have an oval face, it’s your lucky day! All sunglasses shapes suit you. Thus, you may straight away concentrate on colours and trends while picking your sunglasses.
You can narrow down your selection by using our face shape filters on the left hand side of the page or by visiting our face shape guide.
Sunglasses trends 2016
The vast selection of frames available at Mister Spex takes the hard work out of staying up to date with the latest fashions. This season is all about blending the old with the new, taking designs that evoke a feeling of nostalgia but have a fresh, modern twist to create something entirely new
Highly popular this season are sunglasses in tortoise - this pattern looks especially great with vintage style sunglasses like the pairs from Tod’s and Giorgio Armani with its striking double bridge. Honey and caramel coloured sunglasses, like the pair from Illesteva, are indispensable in this season’s retro look and provide for a warm and sunny look. Women will look fantastic with geometrically shaped sunglasses in cool black, which remind us of London during the 60’s and 70’s!
If you want to play it safe, take a look at our classic sunglasses, e.g. the aviator styles. New, however, this year is the angular form, which especially looks great on men and makes them look prominent and masculine. The Clubmaster has been interpreted anew this season as well: colours have been playfully mixed, like for instance these Marc Jacobs sunglasses, which combine a black front with cool tortoise.
Extravagant styles are more up your lane? Then the sophisticated trend will have just the right selection in store for you: Mirrored sunglasses make for that cool touch while sporty aviator sunglasses with flamboyant legs will give your look a sporty but sophisticated look. Women should take a closer look at our butterfly sunglasses selection, which despite their size look delicate and classy.
If keeping it simple is your philosophy, then the minimalistic styles will suit your taste. Transparent sunglasses emit a certain elegance while not overpowering your look. Also frames in nude or blush tones, like the sunglasses from Tom Ford, appear delicate and harmonise with any complexion. Men should rather choose milky frames for instance in soft grey, like the sunglasses from Giorgio Armani.
Keep it relaxed with our casual sunglasses: Round sunglasses with wide frames set a statement and don’t forget the all-time favourite Wayfarer, this time in a larger size, as the Wayfarer from Gucci. For women it’s all about the colours, like berry shades or violet. Sporty pilot sunglasses with mirrored lenses combined with a matt metal frame, like the sunglasses from Carrera, are easy going and pretty cool.
