Now that summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to invest in a new pair of sunglasses. I always thought that an in-store visit was the only fool-proof way to find a flattering pair. And, really, that was the case until DITTO came along. DITTO is revolutionizing the way we shop for sunglasses by allowing customers to virtually try them on.
Before we get into what makes DITTO so unique, let’s just take a moment to admire the wide array of designer sunglasses available. There are classic standbys like Ray-Ban and Persol and adventurous designs from 3.1 Phillip Lim and Jason Wu. (If you’re looking for prescription frames, they have those too.)
Now that you’ve found a few favorites, it’s time to create your “DITTO.” With your webcam, take a video of yourself slowly moving your head from side to side. This allows you to virtually try on sunglasses from all angles. You can also try on styles side-by-side and send your DITTO to friends.
Fair warning: this is addictive. I spent nearly an hour trying on sunglasses. I tried classic aviators, retro bug-eyed pairs and this pair with Mickey Mouse ears, but I fell for the ’60s-inspired Chloe sunglasses.
You won’t have to wait long to enjoy your purchase. Shipping was incredibly fast. I ordered them on a Monday morning and received them Wednesday. Before I even peeked at my new sunglasses, I was struck by the high quality packaging. (Seriously, great packaging gets me every time.) The materials are heavy and well-made, there’s red edging on the white card stock, and they include an additional lens cloth.
If all went well, the sunglasses should be as flattering as they were online. But if you’re unhappy for any reason, they have a generous return policy. DITTO will accept returns for 90 days and they offer a two-year warranty.
Exclusive Discount! DITTO is extending a 30% discount off of anything with coupon code BEDKNOBS&BAUBLES30. (It’s a good excuse to buy a pair of rose-colored aviators.)
Disclosure: I received a pair of sunglasses courtesy of DITTO for purposes of this review. This doesn’t influence my opinion of the company.
