What do you need to take into consideration? What will be the best fit for your preferences? Worry not, we will help you answer all your questions and help you find the right pair of sunglasses.
Here is a list we curated of the things you need to keep in mind while buying sunglasses for yourself.
- UV Protection
The most important aspect – more than looks and style, of sunglasses is protection from the sun and its UV rays. Whenever you are browsing through sunglasses, make sure to look for a tag or description that states specifically that the pair offers hundred percent protection from UV light. Remember that the color and how dark it is does not say anything about its ability to protect form UV rays, so you are free to select the color and shade that will suit you, given that it offers a hundred percent protection from UV light and nothing less.
- The frame
The shape of your sunglasses will have an impact on both – looks and protection. You can select the type of frame based on the shape of your face, your features, what you want to highlight and some other of your personal preferences. There are so many options to choose from – round, rectangle, cat eye, oval, square, etc. You just have to make sure that you choose a style that provides enough coverage to actually protect your eyes. If you only want the glasses as a fashion statement, go ahead and bring home the sleekest pair you find, but if you actually want protection from UV light, choose a frame type accordingly, that aligns with your style preferences and protects your eyes at the same time.
- The size
Apart from being fashionable and stylish, oversized sunglasses provide amazing coverage and maximum protection to your eyes. Plus, they never go out of style! Look up trendy glasses and you will see at least ten different oversized and wrap around style sunglasses. Along with looking good, they can protect your eyes from the front, top, and the sides! Good looks and maximum protection – what else do you want?
- Your lifestyle and personality
At the end of the day, everything your wear and put on yourself represents you and your personality. So, you want your sunglasses to be incorporated into your style, complementing your features and your outfit. Based on your preferences, you can go for a basic and classy pair, or a crazy and bold pair. Just remember to think of how often and where you are planning to wear them, and you are good to go! You can buy one pair that goes with everything, or have a little collection that you can choose from based on your mood, outfit and the occasion.
