Framed!

We love adding that chutzpah to our looks with glares. Good sunglasses can revamp even the simplest outfits. Here are a few key points we keep in mind when we buy our eyewear.

#1: Colour
 Choose glares that highlight and complement your colour base (cool/blue or warm/yellow base). For those of you wondering, a cool complexion has blue and pink undertone and warmer tones have peachy and ruddier undertones.
Sonu has a cool undertone and chose reflective blue wayfarers. Other colour options for cooler tones are silver, pastels, rose-brown, blue, magenta and plum.
Jasleen with her warm undertone tilts towards black. Other options are camel, gold, copper, coral, and tortoise. 

#2: Frames

Your frames should contrast your face shape. So, if you have a round face, invest in angular frames that will lengthen your face. Oval shapes should pick wide frames to maintain the natural balance of their shape. Diamond-shaped faces have a narrow jawline and broad cheekbones. Highlight your eyes and cheekbones, look for rimless or cat-eye shapes.

#3: Size
The frame should rest on your face comfortably; they shouldn’t fall, slip out or too tight. Other than that, make sure the frame size should be in scale with your face size. Try at least 50 different styles and shapes to know what fits you best. 

#4: Originals

As tempting as it may be, avoid picking roadside cheap glares. Invest in fewer but original eyewear. Choose classic styles: aviators, wayfarers and round frames, so you can use them for many years without worrying about trends.

  4. The tips are great. I like the round frames. They look very retro and modern at the same time.

    all the best
