Sunglasses: The Stylish Accessory for Menby Kirk Bachelder Businessman , Professional Writer, Fashionable
Sunglasses for men, have a dual function these days, to make a fashion statement and protect your eyes. The latest shades come with a range of fillers, shapes, colors and embellishments. Here’s a look at the choices available.
The injection molded plastic is a mass produced inexpensive method of making frames. A petroleum based plastic is injected into a mold and then solidified. Although colors in all shades can be added it is less attractive and durable. Zyl or acetate is a plant bases plastic that is lightweight, strong and flexible. The range is staggering because of the choice in transparency, color and finish. Acetate costs more to produce but is extremely durable and renewable. The titanium metal frames are sturdy and break resistant while stainless steel eyeglass frames can be on the heavier side but are corrosion proof. Horn frames are absolutely one of a kind, warm and luxurious and are the most comfortable frames to wear. These frames are limited in choice and flexibility, making them rather expensive.
Shape of Your Face
Men with oval faces can wear almost any type of sunglasses. With their long face and rounded jaw, these type of faces can carry any pair of shades with panache. For men with square faces the aviator or the clubmaster, with their round frames can help soften their strong jawlines. Wayfarers are the most popular choice for those who are blessed with a round face. They make the cheeks appear slimmer and help to elongate the face. Large, oversized shades suit men with long rectangular faces by adding additional width. Clubmasters and wayfarers are classic options while the D- frames are a trendy option. One of the most difficult faces to frame is the heart shaped face. Its wide forehead and narrow chin requires glasses like the semi rimmed round clubmaster.
Sunglasses Buying Tips
Buying the perfect pair of sunglasses is not as easy as it looks .you need to consider the color of your hair and skin tone. Choose the color of your frames or lenses wisely in order to avoid clashes. Pay attention to small details such as the detailing and arm height. Men should be aware how their facial hair or the haircut can affect the overall look of their face and this in turn will change the type of sunglasses they need. When in a dilemma, always opt for the classics like the aviators and the wayfarers. They ideally suit almost every face type but always be on the lookout for new trends or updated versions that may add to your overall look. The best sunglasses in terms of durability, color and quality are definitely more expensive but are worth every penny.
Men have very few accessories that can help enhance their look and personality. Finding the right pair of sunglasses that suits you, your face and your personality can complete a look or create an overall stylish look.
