How to Choose Sunglasses for a Chrismas Gift?


If a few years ago we would go into all the spiel about the fit, the style, and the brand, this year we would simply say, get whatever you like. Sunglasses styles evolved dramatically over the past two years. They became more couture, more daring and whether they fit your facial shape, it's no longer a factor. Sunglasses are not prescription glasses. They cover your face and suppose to be large to protect your eyes well. So shape is a secondary factor these days. High-end brands that we carry at Illuminata Eyewear employ best designers in the world. Not only fashion designers but also industrial designers who calculate how sunglasses will fit and feel on all kinds of nose shapes and face sizes.

A little tip will help you. If you like very large sunglasses, then get either Asian fit plastic sunglasses or metal frames. They will fit easier and will be easier to adjust to fit perfectly.

Other than, just get what you like. Worst comes to worst you can exchange your purchase together and turn it into a special event.
