Sunglasses That Provide Protection

First and foremost, it’s crucial to focus on sunglasses that offer protection against UV rays. It’s recommended by Ophthalmology Web to choose sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB radiation. UV rays can cause multiple health and vision issues, such as skin cancer and cataracts.

To achieve maximum UV protection, sunglasses with polarized lenses are the way to go. UV-blocking sunglasses with polarized lenses will typically cost more than others but is well worth the investment. We recommend reading the description to ensure your shades are polarized. And, of course, it never hurts to perform research and read reviews about the sunglasses you like.

What are Polarized Sunglasses?

Many benefits come with polarized sunglasses. But what does it mean when sunglasses are polarized? Polarized lenses add a layer of eye protection against glare from snow, glass, and water surfaces. According to How Stuff Works, polarized filters are commonly made from a chemical film applied to transparent plastic or glass surfaces. The chemical compound used will typically be composed of molecules that naturally align in parallel and in relation to one another. When applied uniformly to the lens, the molecules create a microscopic filter that absorbs any light matching their alignment.

Buying Stylish Sunglasses

You will be wearing your sunglasses daily, and choosing a pair that look great on you is essential. Although there are many trendy sunglasses, each one is unique. The same goes for you – each person is eccentric in their way. Whether it’s wooden sunglasses or a sporty pair of wrap-around shades, ensure the company offers a warranty and stands by its product.

Sunglasses That Fit Your Appearance

You will want a pair of sunglasses that balance your features and look perfect for your face. Appearance varies from your face shape, skin tone, and hair color. The most important is your face shape. Sunglasses and face contours need to have that balanced look we previously mentioned. Below are some tips to consider about face shape and sunglasses.

Face Shape For Sunglasses

Round face: We recommend women with round faces buy sunglasses with more angular or bold lines. Cat-eye, rectangular, and square frames help break up the facial structure and draw attention to your cheeks while adding more focus to your eyes. These types of frames will bring out distinct lines and make a round face appear sharper. Model Maker frames go well with round faces.

Square face: Opposite of round faces, square faces display bold and angular features. Frames that offer round and thinner lines are recommended. Oval or wider frames are also great to help soften the strong lines on a square face. Women with square faces can’t go wrong with round, oval, or cat-eye sunglasses.

Oval face: Women with oval faces can be more diverse with frame selection since it’s the most universal face shape. We recommend wearing sunglasses that are as wide as the widest part of your face. Oval faces go well with rectangular, geometric shapes, and square frames. Give the butterfly look a try!

Triangle face: A triangular face is widest around the jaw and slowly narrows to the forehead. Sunglasses that provide more boldness at the top than the bottom is recommended. A common selection for women with a triangle-shaped face is cat-eye and wrap-around frames.

Heart face: This shape is possibly the most versatile face shape for women. Frames that are slightly wider than the forehead provide balance for heart-shaped faces. Oval-shaped sunglasses help draw attention to the eyes if you have a pointy chin.

Buy Comfortable Sunglasses

Now that we have covered the look and style for women when buying sunglasses, we should focus on the comfortability aspect. Wearing a pair of sunglasses that offer lightweight and comfortability is key. Whether you’re wearing a pair of wrap-around sunglasses while hiking in the woods, or casually relaxing on the boat with a pair of Model Makers, comfort will ensure you have the best experience.
