Select The Perfect Sunglasses From Anaconda
Sunglasses are important for everyone who spends a lot of time in the outdoors. Not only do they provide protection against harsh sunlight, they look quite stylish too. But how do you select the perfect pair of sunglasses? Read the Anaconda guide to sunglasses below to find out.
What Kind Of Protection Must Sunglasses Provide?
As we mentioned briefly in the introduction, your sunglasses must provide protection against the sunlight, this includes UV radiation. Ideally, you want a pair of sunglasses that blocks out UVA and UVB light.
To ensure you have ample protection, the lenses of your sunglasses must block out a certain percentage of UVA and UVB light. Sunglasses should provide 99% protection against UVB and 95% of UVA. Of course, slight variations are possible, but must be checked before purchase.
Protection can only be provided if the sunglasses fit your perfection. This is something to take into consideration when you will use sunglasses for outdoor sports. In some cases, you will need polarized glasses, which provide even better sun protection.
Which Style Of Sunglasses Should I Choose?
There are a lot of different styles of sunglasses these days and some can be more flattering than others. Below, we have described the various shape sizes and the types of sunglasses that tend to be most flattering.
An oval face - If you have an oval face you are in luck, since this is the type of face that can wear any style of sunglasses and it will be flattering. However, there are some minor style rules to take into consideration, more specifically you should never choose glasses with a frame that exceeds the width of your face. You should also avoid lenses that are too thick or too thin.
A square face - Those with a straight face tend to have an obvious jawline and this can come over as a little stark when the wrong glasses are used. To reduce some of the harsh features that can be present on a square face, round sunglasses tend to be best.
A round face - When you have a round f ace, you want some glasses that can have a slimming effect. As such, a pair of square sunglasses or angled sunglasses tend to be most flattering. Some thicker frames tend to complement a round face too.
A long face - There are several styles that can complement a long face, but one of the most important things to consider is the size of the lenses. Larger lenses tend to be best for a longer face, as they put the face and glasses in proportion.
A flat face - If your face is rather flat and does not have any pronounced features, it is essential to choose a pair of glasses that highlights some facial features. Dark lenses and darker-coloured frames will provide more contour. You could also choose a bold colour to draw more attention.
Which Colour Lens Is Best For Sunglasses?
When you look at the range of sunglasses available at Anaconda, you will notice that lenses can have various colours. The different colours are not just there for style purposes, as the different colours make certain lenses more suitable for light reduction, blue light filtering, and other things that prove useful in the outdoors.
Grey - This colour lens will be used in an environment with lots of light. It will reduce some of the light but will not affect the colours you can see or their contrast.
Brown - A brown lens is commonly used to block out blue light, this means brown lenses are extremely suitable for snowboarding, skiing, and other sports in a snowy environment.
Yellow - This lens will block out almost all blue light, so they are one step up from the regular brown lens. However, they can distort colours, which makes them unsuitable for driving vehicles.
Orange - A pair of sunglasses with orange lenses is only recommended in certain weather conditions, more specifically when it is overcast. If you intend on going snowboarding or skiing, but expect some overcast, you definitely need a pair of these.
Blue - This colour lens is most suitable to increase contrast. They can be used in sunny conditions but must be used sparingly when the environment is too bright.
