It's very "cliché" but yes indeed, Italians truly are sunglasses lovers! They wear them all the time, I mean even if: the weather is not sunny, indoor or late evening. The "spectacles and sunglasses question" is something to take seriously and the Milanese really pay attention to design. We are sometimes attracted by a style or a shape of sunglasses that might not be the best choice to embellish our face... So here are some tips on how to choose the right pair.
- Oval: most shapes and styles will suit you, except extreme geometric designs.
- Square or rectangle: look for lightweight oval or rounded styles. Avoid square or rectangle shapes wich will emphasize the angles of your face.
- Round: frames that are slightly wider then your face will make it seem smaller. Square or rectangular frames balance a round face but avoid round shapes and full, frameless lenses.
- Inverted triangle: the frames should not extend beyond your temple.
