One of the most important things to consider when purchasing sunglasses is your face shape. You can buy the most extraordinary, expensive designer sunglasses in the world, but if the style doesn’t suit your facial features, they won’t give you the look you deserve. Our face shape guide is available for a full run-down of the glasses styles that suit respective face shapes. However, the main thing you need to know is that you want the sunglasses frame shape to contrast with the shape of your face. Remember: opposites attract. So if you have a square shaped face, with your jawline matching the width of your forehead, a round pair of sunglasses will suit you best. This is because the curved edges will soften your facial features, bringing a sense of balance to the ensemble. The same goes for long faces: a pair of tall sunglasses would merely accentuate the length of your face, rather than complement the shape.
Once you have found the sunglasses you have been dreaming of, the most important thing to do before purchasing is to try them on with our virtual tool. All you have to do is take a quick selfie video. The feature guides you through it, so it’s super simple. Within seconds you are left with an accurate portrait of yourself, upon which you can envisage almost every pair of sunglasses on our site. This can give you a good idea as to whether they suit you and your fashion sense. After all, designer sunglasses are a great way to show off sides of your personality, so think carefully about styles and colour schemes. Fortunately, most sunglasses come in a variety of colour combinations, and it is easy to pick certain lens tints too. A useful tip is that for those with lighter skin tones and hair colours, lighter sunglasses tints in brown hues are recommended over darker shades, and vice versa.
Alongside lens tints, you can also choose from a range of lens types, widths and coatings. The prescription lens we recommend is the Arise HD Prescription one, which offers premium quality at a reasonable price, making it excellent value for money. These lenses are available in various widths, so you can choose the one that works best with your particular prescription. And right at the end of the process, you can claim even more benefits by adding optional coatings. These include scratch resistance and blue light blocking zFORT technology.
If value for money is top of your priority list, it is advisable to look into clip on glasses. These are perfect for creating different looks and being prepared for various eventualities with just one pair of glasses. With clip on sunglasses, you start with a base pair of prescription eyeglasses, and add different lens types on top. Each set clips on quickly and easily to save hassle. That way, you can buy four different lens types for just one pair of glasses, which saves you lots of money!
When it comes to sunglasses, the most important lens option is polarization. All this means is that glare from the sun is reduced. Glare is caused when the sun’s rays reflect off other surfaces, adding to the amount of light hitting your eyes, and causing a blinding effect. Polarized sunglasses are great for preventing this phenomenon. However, they are only suitable for certain activities. They are frequently used by those who practice water or snow sports where light reflection is incredibly common. On the other hand, they are not recommended for those practising ball sports, as the polarization feature can affect depth perception.
With such a wide selection of sunglasses, from high end designer labels to our value collection of SmartBuy sunglasses, you are truly spoilt for choice. Don’t forget that when you buy with us, you are treated to a 24 month warranty and price match guarantee, so you won’t find them cheaper anywhere else. In addition, if the glasses arrive on your doorstep and are not quite right, for whatever reason, we make it nice and easy to get your money back. Our 100 day returns policy gives you plenty of time to come to a decision, as finding the perfect pair of glasses should never be rushed!
