Feel Overwhelmed? - Choosing the Right Pair
When searching for a pair, notice how they fit accordingly to the structure of your face.
Does it line with your eyebrows?
Does the shade color match your hair? Skin tone?
Does the style go with the style of your clothing?
What does it convey about your personality?
Have you been looking for the pair of sunglasses which will look perfect on you, only to find that none of the pairs which you have tried on seem to work? Well, one of the most important things that you need to know is that it is always necessary to make sure that the sunglasses which you choose are not the same shape as your face. Here, we will take a closer look at what sunglasses are known to look good on certain face shapes, in order to help you determine what sunglasses you may want to consider trying on.
Round Face Shapes
With a round face, it is important to add some balance to your face shape. You want to make it look a bit longer than it normally does, if possible. The best way to do this is by wearing sunglasses which are rectangle-shaped. Sunglass frames which are wide or thick are also known to broaden up your strong features a bit, which also makes choosing them a suitable option.
Square Face Shapes
If you have a square face, your main goal should be to soften your face up a bit, as your features are all probably very strong and broad. The best way is for you to soften up the appearance of strong curves. Ultimately, the best way to reduce strong curves is by wearing sunglasses which are oval or round in shape. Many people find thinner frames to work the best with a square face shape, although you can try different levels of thickness to see what works the best for you..
Oblong Face Shapes
With an oblong face shape, your main goal is to make your face look a bit wider and longer than it normally is. There are several ways to do this, but the best way is to wear round or square shaped sunglasses. You also may want to think about wearing sunglasses with frames that are decorated, such as with studs, which are really hot on the market right now.
Oval Face Shapes
One of the benefits of having an oval face is the fact that you can pull off just about any type of sunglasses, as long as they are not oval in shape. Both square and wraparound sunglasses are known to be a great choice for anyone who has an oval face shape, but you can pretty much experiment with whatever pair of sunglasses you want. You can also try out different levels of thickness.
Heart Face Shapes
If your face is heart shaped, your main goal should be to soften up your chin. You can do this by putting emphasis on your eyes. Oval shaped sunglasses, sunglasses whose frames are flat on the top, and multi-colored
sunglasses are known to work the best with this face shape.
Finding sunglasses to match your face shape is not hard, as long as you have a good idea of what it is that you are looking for. Doing a bit of research will get you the best fit. Email me today with any questions!

An always popular classic - timeless!
Wayfarers signify what the look of rock and roll is all about. Classically framed and completely iconic, this two-tone style from Ray-Ban is lightweight and durable and ready to exude some serious attitude. Includes a durable protective storage case.
This is one thing I have in common with Jack Nicholson ... a love for the way the Ray-Ban Wayfarer's look and fit. I first found an old used pair of Wayfarers at a garage sale for 25 cents back in the late 70's. They fit so well and the price was right. I loved them. Later I learned that John F. Kennedy, Bob Dylan (on his first tour in England), and Jack Nicholson wore this model.

Oakley Men's Pit Boss Iridium Polarized Sunglasses
Too Cool To Pass Up Writing About -
An original vision of Oakley's founder, the Pit Boss was four years in the making. The technology of this look is just as aggressive as the styling. It matches a stress-resistant O Matter frame with ultra-lightweight titanium plates, forged at searing temperatures and chiseled by Computer Numeric Controlled machinery with a precision of 0.002 inches. That's just one five-hundredth of an inch, and it gives you an idea of the craftsmanship behind the creation. For high-velocity impact protection, hexalobular bolts are used to secure the plates with authority. The Three-Point Fit maintains comfort all day while holding the lenses in precise optical alignment. Every frame comes with premium Oakley HD Polarized lenses that filter out 99% of glare without the visual haze and optical distortion that comes with ordinary polarized lenses. The back of each lens has the added protection and glare reduction of anti-reflective (AR) coating, and the front is augmented with Iridium coating to further reduce glare while precisely balancing light transmission. On top of all that, the Hydrophobic/Oleophobic technology, a permanent coating that repels dust while maintaining a smudge-resistant barrier against skin oils, fingerprints, lotions and sunscreens. It even repels water to prevent streaks and sheens from corrupting your point of view. The lenses wrap your vision with 8.75 base curvature, a contour that extends peripheral view and improves side protection against sun, wind and impact. Even with the styling of that much curvature, you'll have razor-sharp clarity at every angle of view.
After four years of development, Oakley has unleashed the Pit Boss Polarized Sunglasses on the world, providing a lucky few with an unstoppable combination of optical technology and aggressive style. The light, chiseled frames not only feature killer looks, but the fusion of O Matter and ultralight titanium plates makes for a near-bombproof construction. Premium Oakley HD Polarized lenses with Iridium and anti-reflective coatings slash 99% of glare without a hint of distortion, and a hydro- and oleophobic finish repels water, skin oils, and sunscreen. Simply put, this is the best pair of shades in Oakley history.
In conclusion, these are a strong offering for the first in the Elite line. They are essentially everything I want in a frame, while maintaining clean lines with a highly aggressive and modern look. Although they won't make you an Elite, Pit Boss will help make you look Elite and turn some heads. Just be ready for it.
Bolle Anaconda Sunglasses
Stylish, comfortable - long lasting
The Anaconda, part of BollÃ©'s Snakes Collection, named for its wrap around style that holds tight with high performance polycarbonate lenses that are lightweight and shatter resistant. And thanks to the inlaid, non-slip ThermogripÂ® temples and nose pads, they stay on whether you compete for pay or play.
I spent a while online looking for stylish wraparound glasses, and was initially considering expensive options such as Ray Ban Predators or Sidestreets, not to mention other styles by other manufacturers. I finally found the Anacondas on Amazon, which are half the price as other brands, yet look strikingly as similar and as stylish as the others. I decided to try these out and they serve my purpose fine!

Ray Ban Aviator Large Metal Sunglasses
You Cannot Go Wrong With These
Clean and sophisticated, these modern aviators have an unmistakable style that never goes out of date. The Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses are a classic design that fits well, provides excellent protection and great visibility. The metal frames look great and are durable while the green glass lenses are scratch resistant, improve contrasts and block 100%: of UV (ABC) rays.
An icon of style and design and a model that signaled the birth of a timeless legend, Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses have been all of these things since their launch in 1937. Created to satisfy the increasingly demanding requirements of US Air Force pilots, the Aviator style of Ray-Ban Sunglasses gradually earned its place as an essential fashion accessory for both sexes. Aviator Ray-Ban sunglasses live up to their name by offering maximum wearer protection while delivering the distinctive style that has become world-famous, thanks to the many Hollywood stars who have chosen to wear them. The contemporary relevance of the Aviator Large Metal model is underlined by the drop-shaped eye. Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses are designed with a lightweight and durable metal frame. The scratch/impact resistant lenses ensure 100%: UV protection & superb optical clarity. Ray-Ban sunglasses are one of the best-selling brands worldwide.
On the first day, a pair of Aviators don't feel significantly different from the $10 knock-offs. They aren't lighter, the image isn't clearer, the eye protection isn't better, they don't look better on me. But after just a few weeks of mild use, the cheap plastic-lens glasses start to get smudges and tiny scratches, almost too tiny to see. You don't notice it at first because it progresses so slowly and gradually, but little by little, the view through them gets muddled, they get harder to clean, and you start hating them, all without even realizing. One day you get new ones and the sudden contrast is striking -- wow, these are so much better! That's your only clue for how bad the old ones really had gotten by such slow stages you never noticed.
