3 Factors to Keep in Mind When Selecting Sunglasses

Last updated 4 years ago

Have you grown tired of wearing the same old pair of sunglasses? If so, then there's no better time than now to invest in a new pair of stylish and functional shades that you can use to keep your eyes safe all summer long. Here are three factors for you to keep in mind when purchasing new sunglasses:

Face Shape
In order to determine what type of sunglasses will be most flattering to your appearance, find out what your face shape is by taking a quick peek into a mirror. Those with a heart-shaped face are best suited by frames that have wide arms and a cat-shaped eye. Round faces should choose wide frames that slim their cheekbones. If you are a guy or gal with an oval face, then aim for sunglasses with soft angles to play up your natural features.

Frame Size
The wrong size frames can make even the chicest pair of glasses look drab. One simple way to find out what frame size is best for your face, look at a pair of glasses you already own and love. Measure the width of the eye, the length of the bridge, and the length of the temple. Once you have those measurements, browse through your online glasses store to find frames that match those numbers or that come relatively close.

When it comes to choosing a color, think about the purpose the glasses will serve. You can get creative with hues for sunglasses that are meant to accessorize your favorite ensembles, or keep the tones more neutral so as to not cause distractions while participating in outdoor sports or activities. Don't be afraid to buy more than one pair so that you can add some colorful spice and variety to your collection.
