Sunglasses are an important & must have fashion accessory.
Sunglasses are important to have for a couple of reasons. First reason being is that they protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays from the sun.
Just like your skin needs protection from the sun so do your eyes. Now I wear sunglasses or as I like to call them shades because I just like the way they look. So yes another good reason to wear them is if you want to be styling and profiling.
They are a must wear accessory if you want to look your best when out and about. Now when looking for a pair of shades (sunglasses) I have learned that I dont even have to leave my house I can search the internet and find all kinds of cool styles for men, women and even children at very reasonable if not very low prices.
One great place I found to buy all different kinds of sunglasses is Amazon.com.
What to look for in a pair of sunglasses
Most important thing I think to look for is do the glasses have UV protection. Well luckily nowadays I am pretty sure 99.99% of sunglasses have UV protection.
So the next thing then would be to check the level of protection and do you feel you are getting enough.
You should shoot for UV 400 protection, this level will block out 99 to 100% UV. This is not something you want to over look because UV damage to your eyes can cause short term and long term problems for your eyes.
You can develop cataracts, different levels of blindness and even cancer. I dont want to scare you but hey! Lets face it sunglasses are very important to wear.
What else to look for in your glasses
Price will determine what you purchase I am sure so when you are looking make sure you know what you want to spend as that will help narrow your search down.
I have a big head (okay stop laughing) and I really have to make sure the pair I buy will not be digging into my skull. I love the look of the sport style shades that have the arms that turn inward slightly toward your head.
Well I cant wear them because they give me a massive headache. So if you have a big coconut too have a look at the arms of the glasses you like and make sure they do not turn inward.
Color is definitely important to know because there are so many different colors available that you will one day like this color then next day like this color and you might never decide.
So make sure you know what colors you know you like before you start looking. Last but not least style baby, you have a certain style you prefer or maybe your man or you lady prefer on you? Is there a certain style you know of that look smokin on you?
Good then you can keep your eyes out for those ones. I like the look of the sport glasses but because of the way the arms are curved I have to buy the elegant styles, which isnt such a bad thing because my wife says I look FINE. So designer shades it is.
Different types you can buy online
After doing some research for myself I was shocked and pleased at the same time with all the different choices there are and the low price to purchase them. Now I can stock up.
Do you prefer name brand like Oakley or Gucci or how about Prada or maybe Ray Ban.
I even came across some NFL team sunglasses and some Major League team Baseball sunglasses. I found all of these sunglasses available right on the Amazon.com website.
