How to find the right sunglasses this summer
Just like your sneaker collection or go-to vintage jewelry, sunglasses are an important part of your personal brand. A style statement. They’re a unique accessory that brings fashion and health together. And it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect frames, not to mention ensure that they’re loaded with the protective factors you need. “Do they offer UV protection?” “Are they polarized?” These are great questions, and at Invision Optical, our professional team can assist you with finding the best sunglasses to wear this summer.
Framing your face
Find your face shape and get recommendations on the best sunglasses style to fit your shape.
Square: This face has both a broad jawline and forehead, and looks great in shapely frames such as round, oval, cat eye or butterfly, as well as semi-rimless, which balance the prominent jawline.
Heart: A heart-shaped face has a narrow chin leading up to a broader forehead and visible cheekbones. Sunglass frames that are light-colored, have thin temples or exaggerated bottoms are flattering on this shape.
Oval: This face is longer than it is wide and are lucky to look terrific in most frame shapes. For a perfect match, rectangular shades complement the face’s vertical form well.
Round: Just like it sounds, this shape measures about the same in length as width. Check out horizontal, rectangular frames and classic Wayfarers styles.
Don’t forget about sunglass security
In addition to enhancing our looks, quality sunglasses can ensure we see better for a long time. UV rays can increase the risk of cataracts and several forms of eye cancer. The surest way to protect against this is by choosing sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays. Note that lens color or darkness doesn’t matter when it comes to protection, some colored lenses can increase contrast, which may be useful while golfing, running or enjoying other outdoor activities.
