Never Let ’Em See You Squint: Choose The Sunglasses That Are Right For You

Method 7 sunglasses are one of the coolest accessories for growers. Method 7 sunglasses are one of the coolest accessories for growers.

 

Summertime means sunglasses, and choosing the right pair can be a great addition to your personal style. Let’s explore some of the key factors in selecting a pair that will look good no matter what side of the lens you’re on.



FRAMES

Besides looking good, sunglasses have to feel comfortable on your face. If you have a square face, you should avoid wearing thin, square frames. Round frames are perfect for softening a broad jaw. People who have a heart-shaped face should wear frames that are wider at the bottom than the top, with a straight horizontal line. If you have an oval-shaped face, you can wear practically any frame, preferably in soft colors. If your face is oblong, thin frames with an uneven form  are suitable for you.

LENSES

More than just a fashion accessory, the main purpose of sunglasses is to protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays. When choosing sunglasses, pay special attention to the quality of the lenses, making sure they provide full UV protection. The color of the lens also greatly influences one’s mood. Choose a shade that is neither too dark nor too light.

The ideal tint is a neutral gray tone that will soften colors without distorting them. Smoky glasses with a darker upper and a brighter lower lens offer protection from the sun’s rays and allow for good visibility at the same time. A brown tint can increase contrast, but be warned that doctors suggest avoiding yellow, pink and orange sunglasses because they are harmful to the central nervous system (light overexcites the vision and can lead to optical stress). On the other hand, a nice green tint calms down the nervous system and lowers eye pressure. Eyes protected with green sunglasses will not tire easily.

STYLE

On formal occasions, it is recommended that you wear sunglasses with elegant frames. Metal frames are a good choice, as are black or bone-brown ones. One of my favorite brands of high-end frames is Leisure Society.

For sporty occasions, you can wear sunglasses with plastic frames in different colors from Black Flys and Spy. On the beach everything is permitted. Check out the Southern California company Method Seven, which even makes sunglasses specifically designed for hydroponic growers.

If you are looking for something between high fashion and street cool, it’s hard to go wrong with Persol. This iconic Italian brand has been worn by Hollywood badasses throughout the decades, including Robert Culp, Steve McQueen and Daniel Craig.

Keep smiling, and have a happy summertime!
