Sunglasses 101

If you've been following my blog, you know I have a huge obsession with sunglasses, or sunnies, as I like to call them. These are a very important accessory to have, especially since they protect your eyes from the sun. Finding the perfect pair for your face shape can be a little tricky. Lucky for you, I have lots of experience in picking out sunnies & will let you in on a few tricks!

If you have a square shaped face, you have a strong jawline, broad forhead & a square chin. Your face is proportional in length & width. The best sunnies for you are ones with oval & round frames. You want to aviod frames that accenuate the angles of your face.

You hace full cheecks, a rounded chin & few angles. Angular frames will sharpen your facial features. Rectangular styles with make your face appear thinner & longer. You want to draw attention to the top of your face so avaiod small & short styles.

You have a broad forehead & wide cheeckbones that narrow to a smaller chin. Round frames will soften the forehead. Frames with decorative temples will only draw atention to your forehead, so avoid at all costs.

Lucky you! You can pull of all styles of sunnies!! Just be sure the frames aren't too large for your face (unless you're me & don't care).

Also, I highly advise you all to get lenses that are polarized. These lenses will cut down on a lot of glare & make driving or even playing sports outside a lot easier.

I also, recommend stopping by you local Sunglass Hut & let the experts help you find you the perfect sunnies!! Shop online here.
