Let’s get a lil’ shady…
My first job ever was as a sales associate at Sunglass Hut. I was only 18 when I got hired and worked there for about two years, throughout the time of my employment I developed a huge passion for eyewear, to the point where my minimum-wage biweekly paycheck would go towards a new pair of sunglasses more than it should have.
Contrary to popular believe, sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory, the right lens can actually protect your vision and improve your eye-health over time. In places like Florida, for examples, where its sunny all year-round it is basically a necessity to wear “polarized” lenses (blocks the “glare” produced by sunlight), as well as ultraviolet-ray-blocking lenses to potentially avoid developing things like cataracts in the long run. I don’t mean to get all technical but you get the point.

Aside from all the benefits I previously mentioned, sunglasses are almost like eyebrows, they can change the appearance of your face and make you look better, but it is very important to know which ones to buy! Use the chart below to match your face with the correct shape for you! Then consider going through the different lists of my favorite sunglasses by their shape and let me know which ones you like down in the comments!
