Sunglasses Make a Style Statement  

 By Shahnaz Husain

Sunglasses are very much a part of style and glamor. They never lose their popularity and with such a wide variety of styles available, selecting the right one can be a problem. Designer glasses have flooded the Indian market, so if you go for one of the big names, you have to spare a thought for your pocket too.

I feel that sunglasses are more than just an accessory for your grooming. They also help to protect your eyes. That is why one must pay adequate attention to the lenses, making sure that they are of good quality, without any distortions or scratches. Some lenses get easily scratched too. Also, go for lenses which provide protection from UV radiation. In fact, according to experts, sunglasses play a vital role in shielding the fragile tissue around the eyes. He says that the skin, including the eyelid itself, is very thin and vulnerable. In fact, sunglasses also protect the skin from sun-exposure and the resultant visible ageing signs. These are the wrinkles at the outer corner of the eyes, known as crow’s feet. Doctors recommend sunglasses with large lenses for protection from UV rays.

Buying the right sunglasses means you have to choose a frame that complements your face and the colour of your skin. They should also suit the shape of your eyebrows. If you have a sallow (pale) complexion, avoid frames with yellow or orange colour tones. A pink or dark brown may suit. Sunglasses should fit properly, especially on the nose and ears. Tightness in these areas can cause friction. It should also fit closely near the brows, but the eyelashes should not touch the lenses. While buying lenses, one can go for tinted ones in soft colours, like rose, mauve, apricot, pale blue or olive green. Avoid roundish frames if you have a round or plump face. Try frames that are angular. For long or oval faces rounded frames are better. Here are some tips:

For a long face: Choose a large frame with a straight line at the bottom and rounded or oval shaped sides.

For a round face: Avoid frames which round off at the sides or bottom. Straight lines or angular frames are better. The angle should be towards the nose. 

For a square face: Avoid square or rectangular frames. Curved ones are better.

For a heart shaped face: Avoid angular shapes and go for ovals straight across the width of the face.
