I was born in summer, it goes without saying that I appreciate the return of sunny days. I pack my bags, organize my trip and take a pair of fashionable sunglasses for my excursions because I’m ready to go again after two long years.
Sunglasses are a must-have item for me because they can both complete an outfit, adding that touch of style and mystique that your outfit calls for. In addition, it offers protection against UV rays. A good pair of sunglasses that completely filter out the sun’s harmful UV rays is the only thing standing between you and eye damage during your enjoyable outdoor activities.
June 27, National Sunglasses Day, an annual event created by The Vision Council, inspired me to share all the sunglasses I’ve purchased this season, because there’s never a bad time to wear sunglasses when the sun is out, especially when heading to Essence Festival of Culture (EFOC).
If you’re looking for the best pair of shades for you, Los Angeles-based stylist and creator of Your Stylist Says Abby Arad has some tips.
- Choosing the perfect pair of sunglasses has a lot to do with comfort. After all, you’re not really going to wear sunglasses if they’re not really comfortable. She suggests trying on a few pairs to see which style (aviator, cat-eye, oversized, square, etc.) works for you.
- Knowing your face shape and head size is important. Look in the mirror and see what frames go well with your hair (if you have bangs). Does it sit well on your cheeks? Are the frames suitable for your head? Do you wear your hair pulled back? All of these questions apply when choosing the right sunglasses.
- Know your vibe. What are you trying to achieve? If you want to look serious, aviators or cat eyes are a good choice. If you want to have fun, how about circles or squares?
