WeatherWear: Raincatch Water Purification Raincoat

drinkableh20raincoat.jpg

Some among us predict shortages of clean drinking water on the planet Earth in the not-so-distant future. The Raincatch, designed by CIID students Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble, is a raincoat that collects and purifies rain water. The collar of the coat captures the rain which is then passed through charcoal filters and a chemical purification system. Voila, drinkable water, which is stored around the shoulders and pockets of the coat.

WeatherWear: Shopping Sunglasses -- 3 Tips to Get the Right Fit

shopsunglasses.jpg

Sunglasses are a must-have now that summer is here. Many of us wear them year-round, so a good fit is important. On the Runway | New York Times offers guidelines for getting it right, having learned that your individual features, lifestyle and your taste in fashion often matter more than face shape. Here are 3 tips:

1. Smile Test: When you smile your frames should not be resting on your cheeks. If they lift up when you smile, they are too large.

2. Choose Contoured Frames: You want to minimize the amount of space between your temple and the edge of the frame.

3. Pay Attention to the Bridge: Too much space between the bridge of your glasses and the bridge of your nose is a sign of poor fit.

Browse styles -- Men's Sunglasses and Women's Sunglasses.
