How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Sunglasses!

Sunglasses by Marc Jacobs

If you don't own a pair of sunglasses, you should! They are essential for protecting your eyes all year round.

But....they can also be a huge fashion statement as well as a beauty tool! Fashionable sunglasses can be stunning to look at while protecting your eyes from the glare of the sun. They also hide a multitude of sins like under eye bags, sleepy red eyes, or the lack of makeup while running some errands. They are also a fashion accessory available at all price points, you can find really cute ones from all designers at all sorts of price points. Target has some really great looking, affordable ones if you're looking to go the less expensive route, but remember to make sure they have UV protection!

So here are some tips to finding your perfect shades:

Heart Shape Faces: Choose smaller frames with thinner rims that don't sit too high on your face.

Long Faces: Choose larger frames that cover a good portion of the middle of your face to minimize length.

Oval Faces: You have a wide variety of options, so pick a pair that looks good and that you fall in love with!

Square faces: Try Rounder frames that sit higher on your face.

Round Faces: Choose more square shapes and medium size frames.

Quick Tips:
The general rule I like to follow is to make sure frames flatter your face by using your face shape as a guide. Whatever your face shape, lean towards frame shapes that are opposite of your face shape.

Nordstroms (That's where the above pair can be found:-) has made choosing sunglasses alot easier on us all! If you go to their website and go to their sunglass shop, you can choose pairs by your specific face shape! So check that out if you're having trouble: Nordstroms
