    Wearing sunglasses strictly protects your eyes from the sun, but the fact is that they make you look stylish too. Stylish sunglasses catch attraction of the crowd.
    Here are various type of sunglasses:
    • Aviators
    • Wayfarers
    • Western look sunglasses
    • Rounds
    • Without Frame or Rimless sunglasses

    There are some other factors you should consider when selecting sunglasses:

    1. For what purpose will you be using them? Some glasses are designed with driving in mind, some with sports, some just for fashion
    2. Lens type - and, it does make a difference. For example, amber lenses designed for driving provide more contrast than dark glasses that reduce more light. So, I always have a nice, inexpensive pair of Serengeti driving glasses in my car. Fashion is OK on them but the lenses are quality and designed for driving so they're great for that purpose. BUT, amber lenses don't cut out as much light as darker grey. Also, if you're going to be around water, polarized lenses really cut down on glare.
    3. arm style - what arms look like and how they hold on - do you want it wrapped around your ear, do you want it hooking down or do you want a tension hold? Do you want plastic or rubber?
    4. Try glasses on in person - the size/shape of your face could mean certain types of glasses look good on you and others don't. So, what looks good on one person doesn't look good on another.
    4b. Additionally, the weight of glasses varies - you don't want to end up with glasses that are uncomfortably heavy (to you).
    5. Back to #1 - depending on your activities, be careful about buyin $250 or $300 sunglasses if the activities you are going to be doing will lead to damage or loss.

    Personally, besides my drivers, I've become a big fan of Maui Jim sunglasses. Not owned by luxotica (yet) you get quality for a decent price.
