The Perfect Guide to Choosing Sunglasses for Spring

The best way to celebrate the warmth that spring brings is to buy some sunglasses. Stay with us and find out how to choose sunglasses for every type of face and what the latest trends are.

 

How to Choose Sunglasses

Before we show you how to choose sunglasses, it's important to talk about the different types of lenses and frames.

Types of lenses

Good lenses are essential for any pair of sunglasses. They come in several types:

  • Polarized lenses - This type of lens reduces reflections and is ideal for those with more sensitive eyes or who practice water sports.
  • Photochromic lenses - These lenses adjust to different lighting conditions.
  • Coated lenses - Some lenses are coated with materials that protect them from scratches or dirt, as is the case with Eyevan 7285 717 Round Havana glasses.
  •  

    The lenses also vary according to their color and material. Here are some recommendations on how to choose sunglasses for men and women:

  • Dark lenses - These are ideal for everyday wear and moderate light conditions. Look no further than Saint Laurent SL 611 Square or Balenciaga Tip Cat-Eye.
  • Clear lenses - Light colors improve visibility and increase contrast. Just look at the golden lenses of Gucci Gold-Toned Cat-Eye Frame.
  •  

    Frame material

    Frames come in a wide variety of materials, such as metal or acetate. Find out the differences and our suggestions:

  •  Metal - The metal frame of Alexander McQueen Green Floating Skull Metal sunglasses is easily adjustable to the contours of your face.
  • Acetate - Acetate is a versatile and resistant material. Ahlem Rivoli sunglasses are made from 100% acetate.
  •  

    Types of Sunglasses

    In addition to the types and materials of lenses and frames, sunglasses also vary according to their shape. Discover the most popular shapes for this spring:

    Round

    Round sunglasses have a retro sixties look that never goes out of style. Let yourself be inspired by the 9383 Taupe Round and Vintage Round sunglasses from Cutler and Gross.

    Square or Rectangular

    Choosing square or rectangular glasses is an excellent way to add contrast to your face. Our favorites are the Catalina Black by Off-White and the SL M119 Blaze by Saint Laurent.

    Ovals

    Oval glasses were the main choice of Hollywood stars in the 90s. This spring, feel like a star with Balenciaga Swift sunglasses or Gucci Tortoiseshell Round.

    Cat Eye

    The cat-eye shape is one of the trends for this spring. Women will love Balmain Black Jolie Cat-Eye. For men, we recommend the Greeley Cat-Eye by Off-White.

     

    Sunglasses for Every Type of Face

    Did you know that the shape of your face influences the type of sunglasses that suit you? Take a look at our suggestions for sunglasses for each type of face:

    Round

    When you have a round face, the aim is to create contrast. It is therefore preferable to choose square or rectangular sunglasses.

    Oval

    Oval faces are the most versatile when it comes to sunglasses. They work with any option, except oversized glasses that disguise the symmetry of your face.

    Square or Triangle

    Square or triangular faces are like round ones, in other words, they require contrast. Opt for round glasses.

    Diamond

    Diamond-shaped faces are wider around the apples. It is recommended to choose oval sunglasses.

    Heart or Inverted Triangle

    This type of face is wider at the forehead and narrower at the chin. You should opt for cat-eye sunglasses without straight lines at the top.

     

    How to Confirm the Size of Your Sunglasses

    Here are some tips to help you make sure your sunglasses are the right size:

  • The weight of the glasses should be evenly distributed across your nose and ears.
  • The frame should sit comfortably on your nose and ears.
  • Your eyelashes should not come into contact with the frame.
  •  

    Metal sunglasses can be adjusted at the bridge and temples with a slight twist.

    Now you have all the tools you need to choose the perfect sunglasses and rock out on hot days.
