Stylish Sunglasses That Are Made of Veggies

“People will stare. Make it worth their while.”

This quote seems very Oscar Wilde, but it’s attributed to author Harry Winston, who absolutely would have approved of the new women’s Sidney shades from Smith Optics. They’re seen here in the anything-but-wallflower “red tortoise,” the least-shy of Smith’s three color options. More than half of the plastic in the frames is derived from veggies (castor oil to be precise), and the carbonic lenses are tinted a sienna gradient.

And the other colors? Classic black and a blue tortoise with mirrored blue lenses. Of the last one, even Oscar would approve.
