Look closer… can you see me now? It may be time to invest in some glasses, but how do you pick the right ones?
Choose a frame that fits what you are using them for, your personality, lifestyle and face shape.
A flexible wire frame, a more sophisticated plastic frame? Titanium? Gunmetal? For sports, choose flexible wire rims, for normal use, choose the others. Top tip – if you like wide frames, make sure not to make them too wide, otherwise they will hurt your ears.
Generally, people with oval faces should lean more towards rectangular glasses. People with more a square face should go for the oval or circular glasses. It can also help to try to match the shape of the top of the glasses to the shape of your eyebrow.
Another thing to consider is your eyelash length, as long eyelashes can rub on the lens.
Sunglasses, just plain cool is good. Some of the favourites –
Persol, an Italian Eyewear company founded in 1917 to make advanced lenses for Italian fighter pilots, has come a long way. Some fans of the brand are George Cluny, Julia Roberts and Justin Timberlake.
Chanel, timeless elegance and beauty!
Golden Hearts turned Chrome. Chrome Hearts was founded in 1988 by Richard and Laurie Stark, originated making motorcyle gear, but as their fan base widened, so did their collections. This bold and trendy brand is a favorite of both the rich and famous, and the famously rich.
And of course Ray Ban. Look no further than the tried and tested Aviator. Ray-Bans were first created in 1936 and the Ray-Ban Aviator became a well-known style of sunglasses when General Douglas MacArthur landed on the beach in the Philippines in World War II, and photographers snapped several pictures of him wearing them. Ray Bans were quickly seen outside of just the army. In 1937, Ray Ban made their first patent on the Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses.
