The sun is shining bright, and you’re enjoying the day outside. Don’t squint! Make sure you have sunglasses that will not only protect your eyes, but will be chic, too. Not sure what’s up this season? Here are some tips for choosing the best for summer 2011:
(1) Know your face shape–round, square, oval, long or heart-shaped. Choose frames that create balance. For example, if your face is round or if you have round features (like I have a round nose, cheeks and chin), then select frames with angles. None of the retro round shades for me! If your face is more angular (square or heart-shaped), then you need a rounded frame to soften the angles of your face. If your face is long, try frames that have some depth (2 plus inches from top to bottom) or over-sized to create some width in your face. You don’t want anything that is too small or narrow–these will make your face look even longer. Oval shaped faces are in luck…they can pretty much wear anything!
