An Easy Buying Guide for Men's Sunglasses
Let’s be honest. Guys just want to look good in their sunglasses. After all, sunglasses are like anything else you have, whether it’s your favorite baseball cap, your lucky tie, or your latest golf shirt. You buy them because they make you feel comfortable, and they make you feel good.
On the other hand, if you buy the wrong tie, hat, or sunglasses, you won’t feel good. You’ll feel uncomfortable, and you’ll end up not wearing that expensive item you just had to have. Or even worse, you may love you new pair of shades, but a month later you decide you look terrible!
Make sure you buy a pair of sunglasses that makes you feel like a movie star, each and every time you wear them. The key is to know what shape and size match your face. That is the true test of your sunglasses, and it’s not even rocket science. When you buy a pair of slacks, you have to make sure they fit your legs. So it stands to reason that when you go to buy a pair of sunglasses, you want a beautiful fit for your face.
The first thing to look at when picking out a great pair of sunglasses is size. Guys with smaller faces need to wear smaller sized sunglasses, while a man with a larger face needs to sport larger sunglasses. However, trends typically transcend everyday fashion rules for a moment in time. So, if you want to follow the current oversized fashion obsession, this is your chance to shine in a large pair of wrap-around shield sunglasses.
The second rule of matching your sunglasses to your face is to know what your face’s best feature is, and make sure your sunglasses accent that. Want your sunglasses to “blend” in? Find a thin pair of shades in a neutral color that let your assets shine through. Or use your sunglasses to hide a feature you may not feel is your best. For example, a brow bar on sunglasses may draw attention away from a balding head, while big sunglasses with high temples may be better for gentlemen with long noses.
The third, and perhaps most difficult, key to buying the right pair of sunglasses is to get the right shape of sunglasses. Instead of matching your shades to the shape of your face, you want to buy sunglasses that are as different from the shape of your face as possible.
For instance, if you have a square face, you will look best in frames that are round or oval to reduce your angles and provide some definition. On the other hand, a round face will look best in wide sunglasses with rectangular or square lenses. Oval faces can typically sport any shape of sunglasses and can easily try out the newest trends. Oblong faces should steer clear of frames that extend beyond the widest part of the face.
No matter what shape or size you are, there is a perfect pair of sunglasses waiting for you. All it takes is a little knowledge and a little patience to look great in a stylish pair of shades.
