What is the key in not looking like a dork in sunglasses? 

Oddball answers to everyday questions

Michael: Someone that has a chain on their glasses, so the chain keeps their glasses around their neck. Very gaudy. If you're going to wear sunglasses, either wear them on your face or the top of your head. Another thing is they buy regular reading glasses and then buy the tint over them to make them look like sunglasses. That also looks like a mess and cheap.

Michelle: Wearing sunglasses in the evening inside a nice restaurant. It just says you're trying too hard to be cool or something different. It's also rude not to be able to look at somebody when you're having dinner. It looks very silly. The purpose of sunglasses is to shield the sun. If there is no sun, it defeats the purpose. If you want to show off your designer or expensive sunglasses, show them off in the afternoon.

Michael: Glasses that are too big for one's face, which I see particularly here in Atlanta. It says they get their fashion from magazines. It looks generic, corporate. Prada, Versace can spend X amount of dollars to get you to buy what they're making. The fashion houses in Italy are producing it, shoving it down your face saying this looks good, that you want to look like Jackie O., and Paris Hilton.
