Summer 2018: Sunglasses for Cheap
Although I am a month late and $150 short, I am still mourning a loss. On my margarita filled celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I lost my Original Wayfarer Ray Bans sunglasses. I fell in love with the style while watching a UK based reality show lol. Everyone on the show had Ray Bans sunnies. My young, British obsessed, self had to have them too. I had those sunglasses for 6 years, they’d been on every vacation with me, survived being dropped, and temporary losses, but this loss was final 😞.
Unfortunately, purchasing a new pair of Ray Bans isn’t that financially sound for me right now, so I am on a quest for style, on a budget. I’ve been lucky to find some great options. In the range of $50 and up, Nordstrom Rack is a great choice, up to $50, H&M, and for all styles under $20, sunglasseswarehouse.com.
When picking the right style, a good starting point is to go by face shape, as some frames will be more flattering than others. Below I have listed, a chart of face sizes and the types of frames that work best for each. For me, I have a long shape. The styles that would accentuate my face would be: round, cateye, wayfarer, aviators, geometric, browline, and oval. This is helpful when shopping online, however, when in store, it’s always more fun to just try on Everything!
