Tip & How-To about Clothing Accessories

Tips on choosing the sunglasses color.You can't go wrong with basic black. Everyone should have at least one pair of gigantic black sunglasses for everyday wear - they're so Breakfast at Tiffany's. For extra movie-star appeal, make sure the lenses are as dark as possible. Pay attention to the colors you wear most often. You want your sunglasses to work with the majority of your clothes. Do you wear cool colors most often? If so, try to stay with cool colored sunglasses in shades like black, gray, blue, and silver. If you tend to wear warmer colors, look for brown, red, gold, or similar warm-toned sunglasses. Try to buy shades in one of the colors that flatters you most. Shades that flatter your skin and hair coloring will bring out your features and make you glow. Not sure which colors look best on you? See my article How to Find Your Perfect Colors. Have fun and experiment with cheap, colorful frames. Neon sunglasses are a huge trend for summer 2009, so I recommend having some fun and trying the trend out with some inexpensive frames. Sometimes it's fun to wear ridiculously bright, cheap sunglasses. Keep the rest of your outfit simple & classy but go wild with your shades for a look that's very modern and right-now.

Tips for Buying Sunglasses.In the market for a new pair of sunglasses? If you've ever shopped for a pair of shades, you know the experience is anything but simple. With thousands of styles and colors to choose from, how do you know where to start? You'd like a hip style that makes you look fashionable, but you are also concerned about finding proper protection for your eyes. Following are a few tips to keep in mind while shopping for sunglasses. 1.?Look for sunglasses that block 99-100 percent of all UV light. Look for a label showing how much UV radiation the lenses reflect. Read labels carefully. If you are concerned, ask your optician, optometrist or ophthalmologist for his or her opinion. 2.Select a tint color based on your particular needs. Different tints filter different wavelengths of light. Gray is usually recommended for driving for proper traffic light recognition. Also, check that the tint appears uniform across each lens. 3.Try the sunglasses on in front of a mirror. If you can see your eyes behind the sunglasses, they may not be dark enough for you. 4. Be aware that dark-colored sunglasses don't necessarily provide better protection from the sun's harmful rays. 5.If you are considering purchasing a gradient tint, make sure the tint lightens gradually, from the top to the bottom. 6.?Check closely for imperfections or distortions in both lenses: holding the glasses at arm's length, slowly move them across a straight line in the distance. A distortion in the lens may cause the straight line to appear curved or appear to move. Keep in mind that some extremely curvy or wrap-around styles of sunglasses may cause items to appear curved because of the way the lenses must be cut to fit into the wrapped frame. 7.?Don't let price determine your purchase. Higher-priced sunglasses often reflect fashion, not UV protection.
