Casual or Glamorous? Finding Your Perfect Sunglass Style

When it comes to buying sunglasses, there are three things that you should consider before buying:

1. Fit

2. Feel

3. Functionality

Last week we had the opportunity to spend a day with Ophthalmic Assistant and model Stacey, as she toured Toronto and tested out a couple of our designer frames for the day.

Stacey was stuck between whether or not she wanted to invest in a casual frame (blue mirrored Ray-Ban Aviators) or a more glamorous frame (Ralph Lauren Cat Eye).

Both frames fit her exceptionally well, so it was down to feel and functionality.

Q: How do the Ray-Ban Aviators fit, feel and function for you?

After adjusting the arms of the Ray-Ban’s slightly, they fit great!  The frames are super light-weight and feel very natural on the face.  Function-wise, I love how they match a lot of my summer clothes. They are great for suntanning and other casual outdoor activities.  The polarized lenses provide a vibrant filter for the sun, so everything still looks pretty natural.

Q: The Ralph Lauren Cat Eye sunglasses are completely different from the Ray-Ban Aviators.  What do you think of the fit, feel and functionality of these frames?

I love the fit of these sunglasses!  These frames instantly add a touch of glamour to my look.  These frames are also light weight and sit comfortably on my face.  I think they are going to be perfect for outdoor events and patio brunches.  I like that they look good with my hair up or down.  Very versatile and trés chic! I’m thinking I will be adding these ones to my collection!

Optimized--Don't underestimate the cosmetic powerA lot can be said for a good pair of designer sunglasses.  Not only do they protect your eyes from harmful UV Rays, but putting on a pair is the quickest way you can step up your style.  We have long been inspired by the way Dita Von Teese uses sunglasses to complete her glamorous and stylish look.

Here are a few frames from designers we carry in-store that we think the Queen of Glamour herself would wear to compliment her style.
