Le style n'est pas une taille mais une attitude

HOW TO BUY SUNGLASSES ONLINE

 

I have a bit of an addiction for sunglasses and I jealously keep quite a collection in a large drawer.

Most of my sunglasses come from online shops and I rarely (until now never, phew) make a mistake when I order sunglasses.

So I thought that you could use a little recap and a few tips about ordering glasses online.

1° How to choose the frame

Of course there’s no definitive rule, you know how I hate that, they’re more guidelines you can follow if you’re hesitating.

  • for a round face : give priority to the more geometrical lines (straight or tilted) like rectangular frames or a “cat’s eye” style for instance.

  • for an oval face : choose the frames that go down on your cheeks, they will restore the balance of your face, the aviator shape for example.

  • for a more elongated face : if you have a large forehead for example, big frames will dress your face, the retro shape like the “fly’s eye” type.

Note that rounded frames will give you more of a young, sweet look, and on the contrary straighter, more geometrical frames will give you character and confidence in your look.

2° How to choose your protection

Check your frames for the CE seal of approval, this logo is often written in white caps and shows that the product is conform to the European Community’s requirements.

Not everybody knows that but the solar protection factor of your lenses is written on your glasses. It’s the number next to the CE mention.

The category 0 means no sunbeams are filtered.

The categories 1 and 2 are adapted to medium and weak levels of luminosity.

The categories 3 and 4 are for strong sunbeams, like at the beach or the mountain. The category 3 is the one you’ll find the most. And it’s not recommended to drive wearing category 4 sunglasses.

3° How to measure your frames

It’s the safest way to choose your glasses and be sure they will fit you.

Take a tape measure or a ruler and your favorite sunglasses. Almost all of the online shops show the precise measures of the frame in millimeters, all you have to do then is compare the dimensions with your pair. Don’t forget to use the length of your bows. It can be very useful if you have to adjust the holding at ear level.

If you have a nose located a little below the line of the eyes, or a very thin nose, choose glasses with nose pads you’ll be able to adjust at your convenience.

Last tip : enter the exact reference of your future sunglasses on Google Image, that way you’ll be able to see other people with different types of faces wearing these sunglasses.

Have these explanations been helpful to you ? If that’s the case here’s a little contest in partnership with Sunglasses Shop.
