I’ve always been a sucker for a great pair of sunglasses, but I’ve never paid much attention to the lenses. To me, a pair of sunglasses is an accessory to my outfits, and I’m usually more focused on finding a style of frames that flatters my face than I am with the quality of the lens.
I know polarized lenses are best, but the last few times I’ve purchased sunglasses, I’ve opted for a lesser quality lens because I prefer other frame styles.
Maui Jim sent me a few pairs of their sunglasses to try this summer to see how they enhance my view of the world without compromising style. And, you guys, I noticed the instant I put these on that my entire view changed. It was suddenly crisper, clearer and more vibrant. Just look.
They have a bunch of different lens options to choose from, and your view is dramatically different through each one. These are the Moonbow Pink with Pink Tokyo with Maui Rose lenses.
I was drawn to these primarily for the shape and color of the frames and because I thought they would compliment my coloring and a lot of my outfits, but I absolutely love the view through these lenses.
The Maui Rose lens has a subtle rose tint that is comfortable on the eyes, and they’re recommended for everyday variable conditions from full sun to overcast. The lens material is their SuperThin Glass, which is perfect when clarity is your highest priority.
These are my favorite. I make everyone try them on to see for themselves how your view is enhanced when you put them on.
They also sent me the Baby Beach with silver frames and the Blue Hawaii lens. Look how the same view is slightly different through each pair of lenses. The color enhancement through the Blue Hawaii lenses is more subtle than the Maui Rose, but it’s equally pleasing.
This shape isn’t quite as pronounced as traditional aviators. (They have those too, if you like that style — they’re called Mavericks.) These work better for my face, and they still have the lightweight metal frames and reflective lenses that I wanted.
These lenses have the blue flash mirror coating on the lens, which provides the same amazing color enhancement and clarity that Maui Jim lenses are known for, as well as the style factor I want in a pair of sunglasses. The lens material is their super lightweight MauiPure, which is recommended for long days in the sun.
I wore these sunnies hiking earlier in the week, and I could barely tell I was wearing glasses. It felt like they were barely there.
All Maui Jim’s lenses have their patented PolarizedPlus2 lens technology that reduces glare and blocks harmful UV rays while boosting color so your view is clearer and crisper and more brilliant without compromising style.
I’m officially a convert. Now that I know what it’s like to see the world through premium sunglass lenses, I don’t think I can go back.
