Choosing silhouette sunglasses depending on face and design

It is very important when choosing silhouette sunglasses to choose quality lenses that have a good UV rays protection. Lenses can be plastic or glass and may have different retina protective capacity. The difference between two lenses types is that the glass is cheaper, but scratch and break more easily than plastic, and plastic along with properties listed before have the advantage that are lighter than glass.

Lenses may have different glass shades from white to yellow, brown, green, blue, red and plain black or reflexive, but it should be noted that the intensity of color has nothing to do with protection. Protection represents a filter that is built into the lens.

People who wear silhouette glasses can protect eyes from UV rays, opting for dimming lenses that change color depending on light intensity, to which can add anti-reflection.

When you buy silhouette sunglasses, along with protection, you must consider choosing a format of glasses to suit your face shape. If you have oval face, you may find that you are a lucky person, because this type of facial contour fits almost any form of glasses.

In terms of design, large colored silhouette sunglasses with original shapes and prints are in trends.

For people with round face is recommended an elongated format with rectangular frames, such as to give a feeling of stretching. If you have a face with a square form, an oval frame will reduce jaw straight lines.

For elongated face, large frames are perfectly matched, and for people facing heart-shaped silhouette sunglasses with wide top and narrow down lenses would be ideal.

When choosing sunglasses, you should keep in mind the hair color and skin tone to highlight the your beauty.

Silhouette sunglasses are more than a fad or accessory. They are an investment for the health of your eyes and you can wear with pleasure.
