Sometimes the glam life chooses you.
These shades look straight outta Bratz; early 2000s chic designed to tell all the other Sims you’re not interested.
Wear these if your Sim has some flaws they’re dealing with, but still want people around them to treat them with respect!

Triangular, black, subdued and simple.
Thankfully not based on the blue hedgehog, these specs resemble real life Kylie Minogue glasses.

What sunglasses mod list would be complete without these bad boys?
They define the late 00’s/early-10’s with their blocky, functionally confusion style.

The amount of detail put into these specs is admirable, to say the least.
The pure abstract brutalism they went for with these glasses is just… yes.

This mod features three different styles of elegantly designed shades for you try out.
Whether it be matte or wood textured, make your Sim stroll the sandy beach with flair.
Still can’t tell if this is a play on Rayban…
Sleek matte black, or glossy onyx.
They actually look a lot like the glasses I wear in real life – so, I’m a fan!
The most futuristic shades on this list.
Resembling the Google-counterpart, these sleek transparent shades barely hold any presence on your face.
What does grab attention, however, is the visually vibrant graphical user interface designed to accentuate their Sim-lifestyle without cluttering up what they can see.

The ultimate sadboi-sadgirl shades for your Sim to indulge in.
The familiar askew teardrop lenses are surrounded by a thin wire frame for an extra touch of delicacy.
And these glasses look like the slightest wind would blow them – and you – away. If that isn’t one hell of a statement, then I don’t know what the word ‘statement’ means.
Large, circular pink varifocal lenses surrounded by an abstract white frame.
Or even the inverse.
All the styles available in the Gaby sunglasses CC just scream postmodernism. Check them out if your Sim’s normal shades just ain’t doing it for him.

Now these fancy Toksik Sirheo glasses include three wonderful unisex shades, each with duo-tone lenses and thing wire framing.
Classy, fabulous, and very realistic.
Give em a try!
Sleek, thin, reading shades. Perfect for the more academically or artistically inclined Sims out there.
If your Sim isn’t doing a lecture in these shades, then hitting the beach immediately after(still wearing them, of course) then I really don’t know what to tell you. Maybe that my Sim is better than yours?
3. Deal With It
Seven different tri-focal shades with varied framing, for teen females and older, that each carry a distinct attitudinal style.
Great for any clique – whether it be gothic, diva, sports-star, or office-goer.
Don’t like em? Deal with it.
Innovative, creative, expressive.
These futuristic shades are a whole new genre of eyewear. Like a blindfold of transparent glass and plastic designed to look elegantly stylish, yet sent back in time somehow.
If your Sim is mysterious, alien, unusual, or spacey, these shades will look right at home on their face.
These designer shades complete the neo-gothic, noir, emo, or alternative style you’re probably going for.
