Summer is around the corner and you're looking for that perfect pair of summer shades. Look no further than the Yves Saint Laurent Bold 5. The Bold 5 sunglasses have been around for a while now and have been worn by many celebrities, most notably Justin Beiber. Hey, if they're good enough for the Biebs, they are definitely good enough for me! From experience, these sunglasses are sure to attract lots of attention and compliments.
The oversized wayfarer design gives the Yves Saint Laurent Bold 5 a classic, yet modern look. The glasses are quite hefty and extremely well made. At a glance, you can tell they are a quality pair of sunglasses. The glasses are unisex and feature thick square lenses that provide 100% UV protection; however, you may experience some glare because the lenses are not polarized. The Saint Laurent logo is on the outside of the temple. On the inside of the temple, the logo is beautifully painted in gold.
I have to admit that these sunglasses are purely for style and not function. They are not for sports or days when you plan on being extremely active as they are much too heavy. Also, there are definitely better sunglasses on the market with polarized lenses which prevent glare and offer better UV protection, but they often lack the "cool factor" that these provide.
Penman's Final Remark
At nearly $300, the Yves Saint Laurent Bold 5 is quite expensive, but can be found at discount department stores such as Nordstrom Rack or Saks Off 5th for less than $100. For that price, these sunglasses are well worth it!
