My love for sunglasses is an undying love. Personally i always feel my outfit is incomplete without a good pair of shades to complete my look. Finding the right pair of sunglasses is never an easy task that is why you need to take some factors into consideration when picking your glasses.
Finding Your Perfect Pair
First off, it’s a good idea to consider your budget. Some designer sunglasses can reach up to N20,000 or more, while others fall under N20o. A way to save money – while looking good at the same time – is by getting a pair at a stand where they sell designer replicas. If you can, compare the replica with the real ones, and if you can’t tell the difference, by all means go for the replica. For some models, you won’t be able to tell the difference from the real ones. However, always get a second opinion because finding good replicas are rare in my opinion. Many people can tell a cheap pair of sunglasses just by looking at the material and craftsmanship.
Decide What Type of Sunglasses You Are Looking For
Are you looking for something really flashy and attention grabbing like Dolce and Gabbana, or Prada sunglasses? Or something more casual like Rayban aviators.
Find a pair that matches your hair color and skin tone. For example dark rims or a really dark shade would match a whole lot better for a guy with darker skin tone and hair color — whereas gold rims, or yellow lenses would be better suited for a light skinned guy
A general rule is to look at how the top of the rims line up with your brow line. Does it hug the side of your face or is there a lot of space in between? They should follow the curves of your face without being too tight against your skin. How does it sit on your nose? If you don’t have much of a nose bridge between your eyes, go for a pair with an adjustable bridge rather than one with plastic rims. Does it hug the curves of your face with some space, or does your skin touch the lens too much? If you smile widely and your sunglasses are shooting up, they are too close to your cheeks.
Keep all of these things in mind when choosing your pair. Now lets go to our look-book to see some photos
