For the Love of Sunnies

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Man is it bright outside! That summer sun is so brilliant that I never leave home without shades. If you're anything like me, then you lose sunglasses left and right. Because of this misfortunate tendency, I normally buy cheap ones. Or I'll just so happen to semi-permanently borrow a pair of cool glasses that a guy friend lets me wear. They're more my style anyway therefore he doesn't need them. Am I right?

Shopping for sunglasses can be so frustrating. You see a pair you like, try them on, but somehow they look funky on your face. Shades come in so many different styles that it can be a bit overwhelming. You've got aviators, wayfarers, round, oval, cat eye, butterfly, and square just to name a few. Not only that, but then you have to figure out what color to get. Does it work with your complexion? Are you going to get bored with basic black? Tortoise shell...yay or nay?
When picking out a great pair of shades pay close attention to the shape of your face and the shape of the glasses. If you've got a round face, angular and oversized frames will work the best for you. If your face is more square, go for shades that will soften your face like round frames and thin rims. More of a heart-shape, try out sunglasses that are wider on top and will draw attention to your pout and jaw line. And finally there's the oval face. Any round or square frame will work for you just stay away from anything too oversized. For the most part, wayfarers like these Ray Bans and this pair from Toms are perfect for anyone. I'm a huge fan of these round specs by Quay. The circular white pair didn't look phenomenal on me until I chopped off my hair. Now they're the bomb!

The key to pulling off any pair of sunnies is just to have fun with it. When I first saw these red heart shades by Vans, I thought they were to crazy for me. But then I put them on and... voila! I'm in love and ready for the sun.
