5 Tips to Help You Choose the Perfect Sunnies this Season

April 20, 2018 | 0 Comments
As soon as warm weather hits, everybody starts going crazy about getting our bodies “bikini ready”, but before summer I’m all about getting my face SUNNIES-READY with the perfect sunnies! Oh, have you never heard of this term? Let me tell you all about it and why it’s way better than holding a plank for five hours a day and foregoing your daily dose of Nutella. Getting your face sunnies ready has everything to do with making sure the pair you pick out will have you feeling super fabulous every time you put them on for years to come. This sounds pretty easy, but with all the gorgeous styles out there, and bloggers and celebs sporting the hottest new trends, it’s easy to get caught up in the ‘fashion’ of it all and pick a pair that might not be right for you. And here is the best thing about choosing the perfect sunnies for you, your style and your lifestyle – if you get it right, they will be the accessory you add to every look that needs punch, the armour when you need to be badass, and the camouflage when you just need to get away from it all. They are so much better than crunches.   So here’s how to sift through all the noise and make sure you choose the perfect sunnies for you this season. 1 – Choose the right frames for your face shape: this is the first place to start because no matter how on trend a pair of shades is, there’s no sense in buying them if they don’t accentuate your best features or complement your awesomeness. If you don’t know which frames are best for your face shape, read this blog post!   2 – Choose frames with classic features: this doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your frames. Look for a timeless element that grounds them – a neutral colour or chic texture can go a long way to ensuring your sunnies have greater wear power over the years.   3 – Make sure the lenses offer 100% UV protection: this is a no-brainer. Why wear sunglasses if they don’t offer the right kind of protection your eyes need from the sun?   4 – Think about what these sunnies are for: beach days and play time with the kids? Glam travel on the Amalfi coast? While a classic pair will get you through almost every scenario, knowing when and how you plan on wearing these sunnies will bring you to a more mindful and intentional decision.   5 – Plan ahead: there’s nothing worse than finding the perfect sunnies only to discover they’re out of your budget. Start researching the styles you like and putting money aside – a good pair of sunglasses is an investment. It might seem like a lot of money at the outset, but over time, it’s more economical to spend on one quality pair you absolutely LOVE, instead of lots of cheap pairs that don’t last.     Read More
