    I have noticed that many people wear womens style frames or wear colorways intended for women. My question is though, what's wrong with a womens style or a crazy colorway? In fact, one day a buddy of mine asked if my Crystal Red Jupiters were for girls. I don't see how a color can dictate who the glasses are meant for. I for one enjoy crazy colors so I wear some off the wall stuff, main case being my custom Hijinx in my signature.

    Do you guys get judged or hassled for wearing crazy colors deemed as "girly" or wear any womens styles?

    I've heard that for the longest time white frames, other than being labeled as a d'bag, was primarily a women's color frame and that guys in general should avoid it.

    Didn't stop me from getting my polished white Split Jackets. :D

    I do want to say that the curviness of the Hijinx/Antix makes it looks a little more feminine than, say, a Gascan/Fuel Cell/Batwolf/Oil Rig. I guess it's the sharp angles. But that's my personal view. It wouldn't stop me from buying a Hijinx/Antix in any way.

    I've heard the same thing about white. I like them as well.

    At the end of the day its what you like & what suits that counts. My wife only has one female glass & thes the Disobey, her others are 5 3.0 & 5 squared. Plus she looked better in my Jupiter than i did. So colours or styles are irrelivent. It's what YOU like that matters

    What Classifies Sunglasses As "womens" Or "girly"? - 6178276177_11147c0772_b.jpg

    Case in point - I will most likely be the only guy wearing these because they're Pink Iridium and pink is deemed for women!

    Very well put Oakley_Sight! Color is so irrelevant in determining gender specific sunglasses. If you like it and it looks good, rock it!

    Wear what you want. My first pair of Radars were the 'Womens' pink straight stems

    Just to add, i think white frames are different here in the UK. I like them as they make the colour of the lenses pop out
