When it comes to searching for the right pair of sunglasses, there’s a lot to think about. Sunglasses are about more than just protecting your eyes from the harsh rays of the sun. The right pair of sunnies can completely make or break a look and shopping for the right frame, shape and size is vitally important to finding the ultimate pair that you’ll love not just the first time that you put them on but every time after that. Sunglasses are also great ways to elevate an outfit. Casual jeans and a t-shirt make for a relaxed look but pair them with an outrageous pair of frames from Dolce & Gabbana or a sleek pair of Armani sunglasses and you could be turning heads instantly.
Traditionally, when you’ve gone shopping for sunglasses you’ve probably had to drag at least one friend along who can check that what you’re seeing in your reflection is what they’re seeing too. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a style or design, like an Emporio Armani frame, of anything only to find out once you’ve brought it home that it wasn’t actually as flattering as you thought. Taking a friend along to check your sunglasses for you has been the best way to ensure that you receive objective advice about a style or shape that you’re considering. Now, you don’t have to worry. And that goes especially for people who need prescription sunglasses. When you’re shopping for frames for a prescription lens, often you’re going to struggle to see what the styles and designs you’re trying on really look like. You can’t wear your actual corrective eyewear while you’re trying on the latest bestsellers so you’re never quite sure how they’re going to look until you’ve bought them and can see yourself clearly while you’re wearing them. We’ve changed all of that. Now you can shop online with confidence and use our unique ‘Selfie View’ option when you’re searching through the Prada and Le Specs range. By uploading a photograph of your face to our website, you can virtually try on our complete range of sunglasses and get a clear, crisp vision of what you’ll look like. No fuzzy outlines or wondering whether your friends’ taste is reliable or not. You can check how you look wearing any of our classic styles and new arrivals quickly, easily and for as many different styles as you like.
So, now you know the best way to search for, try on and decide on the latest styles of sunglasses available from brands like Ralph Lauren and Versace, how do you know that you’ve chosen the most flattering shape? Have you ever found a stunning pair of Tiffany & Co sunglasses and then not been entirely certain that they’re actually the right style for your face?
The first rule of buying sunglasses is the same as choosing any style of glasses, and a pretty obvious one: you should always choose a frame style, shape and size that suits your face. When it comes to frame styles, the general rule of thumb is to choose a style that is the direct opposite of your natural face shape. That might sound counter-intuitive but, just like the old adage goes, opposites attract. By choosing a shape that is the opposite of your face, you’re offsetting rather than accentuating your natural shape. For example, for anymore with a square face, round frames look the most natural and flattering. They work to smooth out your natural angles and create a gentle softness around the edges of your face. People with a square face generally have a jawline about the same width as their forehead. Classic square faces include Orlando Bloom.
If you are someone with a square face but you don’t really like soft frames or round lenses, then the classic aviator style will suit your face shape too. Choosing a classic style like the signature fighter pilot frame will ensure that your new sunglasses are timeless, seamlessly taking you from fashion trend to fashion trend and always looking sharp, on point and in style.
If you have a round face shape, then you’re looking for the opposite style of frame and you should be looking at our range of square frame styles. Classic square frame styles are always on-trend, especially from the designers at Persol and Oakley. You know that you have a round face if the widest part of your face is at your cheeks. Choosing angular frames will not only offset your natural cherubic charm but they will also give your face a more angular and longer look, which is usually very slimming and very flattering.
For anyone with a round face shape and darker skin or hair tones, you can afford to go a bit strong on the angles and choose a darker lens tone and frame colour. For anyone with fairer skin and hair, soft and gentle browns and amber are your best friends, especially if they have a gentle curve on them. If you’re a big fan of dark lenses and frame colours then that’s cool, too. Just beware that your new sunglasses may make you look a little like a Special Agent from an 80’s blockbuster. This might be exactly what you’re looking for, of course, so knock yourself out. You’ll find some stunning styles from brands like Tom Ford and classic designs like the Ray-Bay wayfarer.
Sunglasses lovers with a long face – people with a face that is longer than it is wide – the round frame style is your friend here as well. Basically, the styling effect that you’re looking for is to offset the length of your face rather than lengthen it even more. Choosing frame sizes that are wider than your face will only accentuate how long it is. Ideally, you’ll want to choose frames that have a nearly 1:1 ration on width to length like classic clubmaster styles with a heavy top frame and rimless bottom. Use our size guide online to ensure that you’re choosing the perfect size for your face.
People with a triangular face shape have a point or well-defined chin that clearly draws the shape of your face down and to a point. For this type of face shape, rectangular and larger frame sizes are perfect. They balance out the natural narrowness of your jawline, especially if you have a beard or broader features, and Dragon is a great brand offering a great range of men's sunglasses and women’s glasses in this frame shape and size. In this case, always stick with larger lens sizes. For finer featured faces with a triangular shape, opt for smaller lenses and mini sizes.
Along with our range of the latest new in styles of sunglasses from brands like Chloé, we also offer customers a broad selection of clear and blue light protection lenses. Blue light glasses have special lenses that have a reflective coating designed to reduce eyestrain caused by blue light devices like your smart devices and computer monitors.
