Tips & Advice: Sunglasses


Many moons ago, I was a Nordie’s sales girl. I slaved away for many hours in the accessories department. This is where my LOVE for sunglasses began. I can’t began to tell you how much I love a good pair of sunglasses, especially a nice retro-inspired pair like the ones below.

I learned a lot working there and I want to share a few tips with you:

  • When picking out a style of sunglasses, always go with a shape that is opposite of your face shape/jaw line. For Example: If you have a round face, choose a square frame. Etc…
  • Make sure they rest comfortably on your face. If they are resting on your cheeks or sliding off your nose, don’t buy them. It will make them uncomfortable to wear.
  • Don’t wear them on the top of your head. It stretches the arms out and can lead to them breaking or not fitting correctly.
  • Always use the cloth that comes with the sunglasses to clean them. Not your shirt or anything else. You will scratch the lens. Unless you don’t care about them…wipe away. You can also use rubbing alcohol to clean the lens. Works great!
