The 5 Rules for Proper Fitting Sunglasses

  1. Sunglasses frame width = width of your face – It doesn’t look right if they’re too big or small. Aside from screwing up the fit, it can make you look bug-eyed and just plain ridiculous.
  2. Eyelashes don’t touch the lenses – Nobody ever gets used to the feeling of their eyelashes smashing up against the lenses. Ever had someone encroach on your space on the bus? Your eyelashes will thank us later.
  3. Eyebrows slightly peak behind the frame – Think of this as a style choice. People like the ability to read your expression. If your eyebrows are hidden behind the frame, you’re basically telling everyone you don’t give a damn. We approve—oversized sunglasses are boss when you DGAF.
  4. Ample coverage – The lenses need to cover your eyes. Never sacrifice 100% UV protection and being able to see for lenses that can’t keep your eyes safe from the sun.
  5. Fit = Comfort
    1. Bridge fit – Sunglasses sit comfortably on your nose without pushing down and leaving divots when you take them off
    2. Temple fit – The temples shouldn’t feel like they’re drilling into your skull. That’s a headache waiting to happen
    3. Balanced Frame – The weight of the frame should be distributed evenly from the frame to the temples for all day wear and comfort
