The Importance of Sunglasses

Sunglasses are more of a practical summer accessory than an essential fashion statement. The single most important reason to wear sunglasses is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Long term exposure to UV rays can be harmful to the eyes. Protecting the eyes from these rays is essential. To do so, wear sunglasses that block nearly 100% of UV rays when you are outside during the day. Even when skies are cloudy, wear sunglasses as a precaution. Arnott’s have a vast range of high quality UV protection sunglasses that are not only functional but also fashionable and trendy.

Choosing Sunglasses to suit your face shape:

Square Face: the square face shape is characterised by a strong jawing and defined cheekbones. When shopping for sunglasses for this face, choose round rims to soften your bold features. Shop for teardrop-shaped or round sunglasses. Sunnies with thinner frames, like the ones made from metal make the face appear softer without losing the masculinity that the square face shapes gives off.

Round face: The cheekbones of this face shape are usually larger and the small forehead is almost symmetrical to the jawline. Opt for angles. The key to sunglasses for men with round faces is to make the face look longer. Rectangular and square frames break up the softness, slim the cheeks and help your face appear thinner and longer.

Long face:You’ll know if you have a long face if the length of your face is longer than the width. The best pair of sunglasses should highlight the strong points of your face. This means adding angles to the soft curves. Shop sunglasses that are rectangular or slightly square like aviator style.

Heart face: Some stylists consider this to be the most versatile of all face shapes, this face shape looks best in medium-sized sunglasses that balance out the small chin and large forehead and brow. Aviator sunglasses look great and have a broader bottom half that balances out the width of the chin. Shop luxury sunglasses that are perfect for eye protection and great to style up an outfit.
