Review of Winkwood sunglasses

accessories over 40 protective eye wear

A cool trend: Wooden frame sunglasses

Today I want to introduce you to Winkwood, a company in Australia that sells super cool wooden sunglasses. Their collection encompasses wooden frames with mirrored lenses in a large variety of styles. You can find classic cat-eye, aviator type styles as well as nerdy square or round lenses frames. On their web page, they have a guide to match your face shape with the best flattering frame for its shape. The pair that I am wearing, for instance, looks best on oval and square faces. There are also photos on how the sunnies look when worn. Thus, when you know your face shape, you hardly can go wrong. <3

Light skin friendly material plus great protection

Winkwood sunglasses are made from organic layered wood. The colored mirrored lenses have a UV-400 protection. This means they provide maximum protection even when the sunlight is reflected on the water at the beach or lake, on the mirrored windows in a business district, on the road or even on Alaska’s snow in spring and fall. 🙂

Sunglasses are not just for summer. #health Click To Tweet

Winkwood has great classic styles with wood frames

Their collection is awesome, and it is hard to just choose one pair! I picked a white pair as white frames are an eternal classic. I love that the milk white color of the upper frame looks soft and warm, not cold like snow. In other words, it looks friendly and approachable. The champagne color of the lenses is very unexpected and adds color to the face without being over the top. The little dots drilled into the frame create the structure of a waffle. Summer and ice cream waffles come up the mind. Well this interesting design gave the piece its name: Creamy Waffle.

Winkwood has affordable high protective trendy eye wear

The Winkwood sunglasses look more expensive than they are. The pair shown in the photos costs only US $111 (AU $149, GBP £86.70, CAD $149.28, EUR €99.29). This price is about half the money, one has to fork over for expensive designer sunglasses that everyone wears. Nevertheless, like with designer frames you can register your purchase for warranty and protection. Furthermore, since wood is a natural material, no two pairs will be exactly look the same. They are as unique as you are. Who doesn’t like that?

Get your wooden sunglasses registered. These sunnies are designer pieces from nature. #personalstyle #coolsunglasses Click To Tweet

Winkwood wooden sunglasses are easy to style

Another plus, they are easy to style and look great for the weekend (see red-white-black outfit inspiration) as well as for work (see business casual inspiration look with pants and blazer).

Winkwood ships international

International orders will ship by registered international post or courier for an amount calculated at checkout depending on the country of delivery. I run their shipping estimate program and shipping to the US, UK, Canada, and Germany was estimated at $9.95 AU. This means while the sunnies have a fixed prices the shipping costs depend on the daily exchange rates. However, I think the Winkwood sunglasses are totally worth their price plus the shipping cost. All international deliveries will have a tracking number. Thus, you can “watch” your item traveling to its new home.

In a nutshell: All Winkwood sunglasses are statement pieces for women (or men) with distinct style at an affordable price. The designs focus on both comfort and style. I like that the feeling of the wood on my nose. It is light and doesn’t make me sweat where the frame is in contact with my skin. They are so beautiful I am tempted to start a collection. 😉

I am currently carving the Arctic Piranha as my next pair. Browse their collection now. Which one is your favorite?
