Spring on the Sunglasses

Hey Y’all

Since spring is here, time to bust out with the sunglasses.  As an ex Sunglass Hut employee, I have seen and dealt with all kinds of people when it came to purchasing a pair of shades. Here are my tips!

  •  1st & most important thing to look for is the shape of the sunglass and will flatter your face shape. (You don’t want a bug eyed look. Check the photo below)
  • 2nd  pick a color which will look good with your complexion and hair.  ( Don’t purchase a pair because some celebrity or friends are wearing them,  If it doesn’t go with your features, its NOT GONNA LOOK GOOD)
  • 3rd  When purchasing a pair, think of how often your going to be using the sunglasses. Regularly or Occasionally?  Why I ask? Because if you’re going to be using them regularly, make sure you check
  1. Are they light enough to wear for a longer time period?
  2. Do they leave creases on the nose?
  3.  If you’re going to be using them while you’re driving, make sure you can see your blind spot. (You don’t want to get into an accident)

*** Remember overtime, sunglasses/glasses whether it’s a plastic or metal frame do tend to stretch out and fall off of your nose. Take it to the nearest shop and get it fixed, shouldn’t take more then 5-1o mins.
