as summer is in, its time to look fashionable with sexy
sunglasses. Sunglasses are definitely the most sought
accessories this summer, with people all over the city
sporting various models. But at the same time you should
know which model suits your face and hairstyle. There
are many factors, which one has to consider while choosing
the perfect piece.
First and foremost thing to consider is whether the
particular sunglasses that you spotted the other day
suits your face or not. Find out which style suits you
with rounder faces should wear glasses with slightly
more angular and narrower frames to accentuate the
forehead, cheeks and chin. Go for colours that are
dark like black or deep brown.
with squarer faces should wear glasses with wide,
oval frames because they can lessen the angular
look and create a softer image.
with oval faces tend to look good in almost any
style or shape sunglasses, yet the best choices
are probably the glasses that have a similar width
as one's cheeks.
you have a triangular face, then you have a broad
forehead and a narrow mouth and chin. Always choose
a thin rim with vertical lines. Make sure the frames
don't sit high on the face, as that will emphasize
the triangular look.
with heart-shaped faces should wear frames that
are oval, round or aviator styles.
your nose is wide, avoid plastic frames that have
a narrow bridge.
a long nose, try a straight, horizontal frame with
a low bridge.
your eyes are close-set, go for smaller frames,
making sure that you're eyes are centered in the
wide-set eyes wear large, opt for rimless frames.
next step is to see whether the sunglasses you choose
suits your hairstyle. If you have hair with light wavy
curls, then go for delicate shapes. If your hair is
very curly then choose sunglasses that follow your brow
line. Straight hair people are recommended to pick up
round sunglasses. Very shorthaired and longhaired people
should go in for bold designs.
Nowadays more than the shape of the frame, the
colour of the glasses is what defines style and fashion.
Pastel coloured lenses are ultra-chic, and flatter all
face shapes and complexions. Choose from rimless to
delicate silver metal framed varieties. Neutral coloured
lenses of grey or grey-green are the most versatile
and also provide maximum comfort. Brown and coloured
lenses are great for day driving, allowing for the best
colour definition. Yellow and amber lenses work best
for activities where depth perception is especially
important. Go wild with fashion tints like light blue,
lavender, peach or pink.
While you are choosing your sunglasses you
should always check whether your glasses provide you
protection against UV-rays. There are innumerable fashionable
models of sunglasses in the market, which not only look
chic but also give you 100 % protection against the
damaging sun rays.
