NO MORE MISMATCHES

A FEW TIPS TO FIND THE FRAMES THAT FIT YOU BEST

Depending on the shape of your face and on your hair style, some frames will fit you better than others: here’s a quick guide to find the best match.

Your face is narrow: Try taller, squared or more circular frames, which will take up more room on your face.

Your face is round: Prefer contrast and choose angular, rectangular frames to help elongate the face.

Your face is square: Try oval and rectangular styles with rounded edges to soften a strong jaw line and lengthen the face.

Your face is oval: lucky you! Every shape suits you.

Don’t worry if your face doesn’t fit exactly into any category - a lot of us are hybrids. Just decide if you’re mostly about angles or about curves, then try on glasses in a contrasting shape.

IT’S NOT ONLY ABOUT STYLE

DISCOVER THE MORE FUNCTIONAL OPTIONS YOU HAVE WHEN IT COMES TO SUNGLASSES

Tips to add some substance to your style:

  • Not all sunglasses protect from harmful UV rays, as it isn’t the tint that protects. So, do not forget to check the UV protection.
  • Polarization is the greatest improvement in sunglasses that cuts light reflections. The visual difference is amazing compared to ordinary sunglasses, and a must in very bright sunlight and situations of strong glare such as on water surfaces or in the snow.
  • If you want to use them while practicing sport, pay extra attention to the shape of the frame and the lens material. Choose the best impact resistance and a protective wrap around frame.
  • Beyond style, color is functional: grey lenses give a very neutral perception of colors, while brown lenses enhance color contrasts. Grey-green lenses provide more natural vision.

THE RIGHT VISION INDOORS AND OUTDOORS
