9 Affordable, Stylish Sunglasses Brands That Should Be On Your Radar Before Beach Season
Outside of the smartphones that rarely leave our hands, there are two items we never set foot outside of the house without: our favourite tinted lip balm and, more importantly, a stylish pair of sunglasses.
The finishing touch to our outfit of the day, sunglasses are more than an accessory, they’re a necessity for protecting our precious eyes and the surrounding delicate skin from harsh UVA and UVB exposure.
You don’t have to break the bank to find a fabulous pair of sunnies, either. There are several affordable sunglasses brands that make chic options for every budget.
Finding a great pair of affordable sunglasses you’ll love is all about picking the right shape for your face and balancing proportions.
If you have a round face opting for square or rectangular sunglasses is best, while square face shapes should opt for round or curved sunglasses.
For those with oblong or rectangular faces choosing oversized shapes works best, for diamond shaped faces opt for rimless or curved glasses and people with heart shaped faces should avoid straight top styles, leaning more toward cat-eye shapes.
