The temperatures may be falling, but it’s never too cold to have a cool pair of shades. The sun’s UV rays can still do damage to your eyes in fall and winter months. Plus, a fashionable pair of sunglasses is a great way to complete any look. The folks at Cohen’s Fashion Optical (151 Montague St.) tell us that when it comes to sunglasses, bling is one of the hottest trends this fall. But if bling isn’t your thing, gold trim is another stylish option.
