Sunglasses

Posted on: September 28, 2010

My recent stash is a pair of DKNY sunglasses from my husband as our 9th year anniversary present. I have been looking for a proper pair for a long time because my face is relatively small so the frames are either too wide or I cannot get the colour that I want. However, oversize sunglasses are in! So even though it looks a tad big, I still look “in-fashion”. The question is how to look extra interesting. Since Autumn is here (okay, you only get sun and more sun over here… just play along), pair it with a nice hat. This is especially useful for those with a long face (read my previous post on hats). The key is to match the frames to the colour of the hat, top or even the colour of your hair, and of course a beaming smile.

If you want to opt for something more retro, you can try tying a bandana or a hair band. I find that those with angular face looks prettier with squarish spectacle frames. Pick one that has UV protection as it is way better for your vision as it would not dilate your pupils, causing more light to enter your eyes. It is worth investing in a pair which might cause $200+ in Singapore from a licensed optician. It will last you about 3-4 years before the coat of UV protection on the lens wears out.
