It’s nearing the end of March, and while it’s still bone-chilling temperatures for many of us, the thought of warmer weather really gets us hot. So now that we’ve thrown a pun out there, lets get started. Sunglasses. We need them to protect our eyes from harmful rays, especially after that gnarly hangover on Sunday morning. There are a plethora of cool options out this Spring, so check out some of our favorite out-of-the-box styles.

-TOMS Memphis Sunglasses – Known for their shoes, but starting to get some serious recognition for their eyewear. If you really want to step out of the sandbox, try these color block versions. Hard edges, and soft lines are brought together with turquoise, tortoise, cream and yellow. You can purchase them directly from TOMS (and they’ll donate a pair of glasses to someone in need).

-Wyler Sun by Oliver Peoples – These are modern, slightly oversized and bold. The translucent grey frame and blue gradient polarized lenses cool things down for those overly sunny days on the beach. You can pick up a pair at Oliver Peoples website.

-Ray-Ban Wayfarers – These are always a classic. But wait, how could they change these sunglass-staples up? Well, they made them out of leather. Too cool for school, too cool for the beach. We don’t know where you could wear these without being stopped every 15 seconds. You can get them here.

-Angelus by Garrett Leight -Considering that he’s the son of Oliver Peoples’ founders Larry Leight and Cindy Leight – we trust Garrett in the glasses department. Check out these matte black frames with minty fresh green lenses for an updated look with a touch of retro style. For the whole collection visit

-Duckworth by Warby Parker – Who doesn’t love a good pair of Warby’s? The frames are laid-back, elegant and totally chill. Slightly rounded and one-of-a-kind thanks to their hand-mixed insets of tortoise acetate. These guys look best in painted desert with polarized blue frames. And you can’t beat the price. Get your pair here.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

Panerai's 2023 Navy Seals watches

If you’re a fan of diving and American special forces units, then it’s time to celebrate. Panerai has released its latest range of Navy SEALs dive watches, and they look good. Four new timepieces are available, though that availability is limited with three of the watches and extremely scarce with the fourth. The whole thing is part of a collaboration that started in 2022 and adds to the already wide range of luxury Panerai watches.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach. If you’re one of the 50 people who will ultimately spend $53,200 on the 47mm Submersible Chrono PAM01402, you’ll get more than just the watch. The luxury timepiece comes with a matching travel pouch, an NFT, a collection of “artwork,” and the chance to experience “Navy SEALs Training.”
