Sunglasses – which UV filter to choose?
Sunglasses for women are not only a trendy accessory, but they also protect your eyes from dangerous sun exposure. In order to fulfill this function, however, they must be equipped with a high-quality UV filter. The abbreviation UV stands for ultraviolet radiation, which is invisible to the eye. In order for the sunglasses to adequately protect you from this, they should carry the UV 400 label. You can usually find this information on a label attached to the lenses or the frame of the glasses. Sunglasses for women are usually – depending on the category of the sun filter – in five grades divided. Usually, the higher the category, the darker the tint of the sunglasses lenses. When choosing the right filter, however, you should also pay attention to the purpose for which you are buying your glasses. Category 0 and 1 sunglasses offer the weakest protection. They often have clear or lightly tinted glasses and accordingly have a high level of light transmission. They are suitable as protection against wind, dust or of course as a fashion accessory in everyday life. Category 2 includes glasses with a medium-weak filter that are suitable for casual wear and medium-strong sunlight. Category 3 guarantees you more intensive protection so that you can use the sunglasses, for example, on vacation by the sea or as ski goggles. The fourth category of sunglasses offers the strongest protection. Warning: If you are looking for sunglasses for women that you can wear while driving, sunglasses in this category are completely unsuitable, as they allow very little light to pass through. You can usually find the information about the categories on the inside of the glasses frame. However, if you want to be on the safe side with the quality of your glasses, you should also check whether they have a CE certificate owns. This label guarantees that the product complies with the current EU standards. When choosing suitable women’s sunglasses, you should also keep in mind that they should also protect the sensitive skin around your eyes from what is known as stray light. For this, choosing larger glasses or thicker temples may be the best option. Alternatively, you can also use a stylish cap or hat, which also offers you excellent glare protection.
How important is the choice of lens tint?
The right lens tint of the sunglasses is guaranteed to give your outfit a swing, but it can also offer you other advantages. The most recommended and conventional tints for sunglasses are brown and gray. Therefore, you will probably never go wrong when you go for one of these classic lens tints.
The color brown helps to improve the contrast and glasses in this tint are suitable for both outdoor and indoor use.
Gray glasses are not color-falsifying and thus enable a precise perception of the colors. For this reason, for example, gray-tinted sunglasses are perfect for driving or generally in traffic. For drivers, however, a brown or green tint of the lenses is also recommended. The color blue, on the other hand, is completely unsuitable for eyeglass lenses in traffic because it softens red tones.
For sports enthusiasts, sunglasses with a yellow, orange or red tint are suitable. They block the blue light and are ideal for winter sports, for example. You can use them as ski goggles, for example. A yellow glass color also increases the contrast in poor light conditions, e.g. B. when it is snowing or foggy.
If you want to see the world a little rosier, you reach for glasses with a pink tint. In addition to this nice effect, they also reduce eye fatigue.
It is important to mention that the lens color has no influence on the protection against UV radiation of the sunglasses. This means that even lighter tints have a high-quality UV filter and can therefore offer you sufficient protection against UV radiation.
The different materials for sunglass lenses and their advantages
Although they are referred to as spectacle lenses, very few sunglass lenses are actually made of glass today. Most of the time you come across plastic glasses today. Due to the light material, these are particularly comfortable to wear and can also be processed in such a way that they are particularly unsusceptible to scratches.
Sunglasses for women with polarizing filters and mirroring
Sunglasses are often available with so-called polarization filters or mirror lenses. How do they differ from the usual glasses?
Polarized sunglasses are usually indistinguishable from ordinary women’s sunglasses, but a clear difference is noticeable after wearing the glasses. Thanks to a special filter, the sunglasses lenses have a higher ability to reflect strong UV radiation and thus offer you effective protection against glare. You will particularly appreciate them on vacation when the view of the water surface is a little more pleasant. Or when you drive, as they block the surface reflections from the hoods of oncoming cars, for example. The polarized sunglasses thus ensure more visual comfort and thus also reduce eye fatigue.
Mirrored sunglasses are currently very much in vogue and, due to the special nature of their lenses, can reflect light and thus also provide glare protection for your eyes. If you want to counteract the rapid fatigue of your eyes, you should consider sunglasses with mirroring. Be aware, however, that sunglasses with mirrored lenses can cause color distortions and are more prone to scratches.
Which sunglasses are right for you?
If you choose the right shape of the sunglasses, you can use them to highlight your unique face shape. However, with so many different types and shapes of women’s sunglasses to choose from, this can be tricky. Regardless of your face shape, you should make sure that the upper edge of the frame is flush with the line of the eyebrows and does not exceed it. At the same time, the frame of the glasses shouldn’t be much wider than your face. If you want to be sure that the Chanel Sunglasses women fit you, there is a simple help: The shape of the frame should be the opposite of the shape of your face. Ladies with one oval face have an advantage here. This face shape fits almost all types of glasses. In which shapes sunglasses are for women available and for which face types are they suitable? Let’s take a look at it together:
Round and oval sunglasses
Oval and round sunglasses are particularly suitable if you have an angular face that is characterized by sharp contours with a broad forehead and cheekbones. For example, you can choose very stylish round sunglasses frames that perfectly soften the sharp facial contours. If your face is rather round, you should avoid this type of frame, as it could make your face look even rounder.
Square and angular sunglasses
If you have a round face, square or angular sunglasses are the right choice for you. However, if you have an angular face, you could look unnecessarily strict with a square frame.
These glasses are particularly popular in their specific shape and are reminiscent of cat eyes. They are very elegant and so it’s no wonder they were worn by fashion icons like Marilyn Monroe. Real classics! Cateye sunglasses go perfectly with a round or heart-shaped face.
Aviator glasses, which were originally developed for American aviators, are among the timeless sunglasses classics. They have a down-to-earth design and are particularly suitable for a heart-shaped face, which is balanced in this way. They are also popular in the version with mirror glasses.
