Hello SOTGC community,
Summertime leads to one thing: Sunshine. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with sunshine! I love nothing more than to bask in the sun on a hot summer day. But, sometimes, it can get a little difficult don’t you think? The hotter it is, the brighter the sun. The brighter the sun, the harsher the UV rays are on your eyes! No one wants to damage their eyes simply by just enjoying the weather do they? I think not! Sunglasses are important in keeping your eyes protected all year round but more so in the summertime!
There are many different shapes of sunglasses, and each shape may or may not complement the frame of your face. It’s easy to see whether or not the frame suits you and whether or not you even like them in the first place! They may look great on a model or on display, but it becomes a whole new ball game when you actually try them on! Make sure you figure out what types of shapes are do’s and don’ts for your sunglass game, especially if you’re going to buy a pair online!
If you simply just go online you can get quick tips on what types of shapes best suit the frame of your face. Or, better yet, just go to the nearest sunglass store and try them on! It may seem a little awkward to do it, but it will save you tons of time and grief later on when you are hunting for a new pair for those summer rays! Once you figure out what is best for you, finding a pair of glasses will be quick and easy!
So what types of sunglasses are in for the summer you ask? The answer is simple: Statement Sunglasses! Statement sunglasses are those that are quirky, unique, and out of the ordinary. It’s definitely about self-expression and choosing a wild and wacky pair that’s FUN! If you want a clearer picture on what I am talking about check out the glasses that are pictured below! Anything with a little color, sparkle, decoration, etc. is a Statement Sunglass. It doesn’t have to be Lady Gaga crazy (unless you want them to be!), it just has to be something that well … makes a statement! Whether you want to be a feminine girly girl with flower accents or a rocker chick with spikes and sharp edges, it’s all about you!
