Stare Into the Sun: Picking Out the Perfect Pair of Shades

Stare Into the Sun: Picking Out the Perfect Pair of Shades

Your trip to Ibiza is booked! While packing for your beach getaway you realize you’ve lost your sunglasses. Instead of spending a few dollars on a cheap pair its time to upgrade your style for an amazing summer look!

There are three major components to finding the perfect pair of shades. First consider the occasion for the sunglasses. For a higher fashion feel consider a frame from Christian Dior, Tom Ford, or Persol. If you prefer an every-day style, Ray-Ban, Oakley, or Ralph Lauren may suit you better.

Next, finding the perfect fit is essential. While in the store, don’t be afraid to try on many different styles. Be cautious not to pick out a frame that is too big or narrow for your face. Ideally, the frame should provide ample coverage and feel comfortable on your face.

Finally, while picking out the perfect frame do not compromise on the lens. A pair of polarized glasses will effectively shield the glare from the sun but will come at a higher price point. A non-polarized lens will still block the UVA/UVB rays but it will not block the glare from the sun completely. Consider your budget but remember a polarized lens is a higher quality product.

You’ve got your sunglasses and you are about to board the plane. Be ready to FLYINSTYLE and soak up the sun!
