4 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Sunglasses

Post on March 27, 2019 | SOGO Malaysia


A pair of sunglasses can instantly turn any boring outfit into something worthy of attention. However, finding one that is perfect for your face is never an easy task. Sure, you could always try all the different shapes, sizes, colours and everything else in between until you find one that works...which will inevitably consume a whole lot of time and effort. So, to save you from all the hassle, have a read at our quick and simple guidelines for you to follow when you feel like purchasing your next pair.


1. Know your face

How can you tell whether you have found the right one? Well, a perfect pair of sunglasses should complement your face shape to highlight your best features. So, go in front of the mirror and give yourself a good look to determine the kind of face you have. Once you get that part done, search for a frame that is in contrast with your face shape. If you have a square face, go with a more rounded frame to soften it out a little. The most important thing to take note of here is to always go with frames that are in contrast with your feature.


2. Size does matter

What looks good on someone else doesn’t necessarily will look great on you. The one size fits most rule doesn’t apply here, got it?  So, when you find the right shape, take a moment to try all the different sizes of the frame. Simply because the better your sunglasses fit, the greater it will look sitting on your face.


3. Pick a colour

The first and most important factor to consider when choosing the frame colour is to pick one that match your skin tone. Apply the same approach as you would when you shop for your clothes. If you are unsure, the safest bet is to go with black, brown or maybe turquoise. And, if you ask us, our personal favourite is the semi-translucent frame that channels a more modern look.


4. Name your price

Last but not least, set a budget that you are willing to fork out. Bare in mind that spending lavishly doesn’t necessarily guarantees top of the class quality. To ensure you have the best of everything, always go with lenses that block out either 99% or 100% UV rays.
