Shades are the ultimate accessory: they're comfortable, safe and cool. They create a sense of privacy in a world today where little is found. No one will judge you; in fact, a good pair will keep people “wondering.” The best kinds have 100% UV protection, but there’s no need to spend a bundle.
Shades are the window to your style soul. If you’re a glamour girl, go dark and oversized. If you’re the cool kid on the block, opt for slim-rimmed aviators. If you’re a trendsetter, go geometric with ombré detail. And if you’re the retro type, black Wayfarers are the answer.
Consider the face-to-shade equation to maximize your look. Square face: looks best in oval or cat-eyed; Circle face: looks best in rectangular; Heart-shaped face: looks best in rounded, oversized. Oval face: any shape will do.
Keep the future bright: eat your spinach, call your mother and wear your shades.
