Sunglasses have always been men’s favorite accessory. In order to make a lasting style statement, opting for the right pair that goes well with your overall personality is essential. Ray-Ban is one of the top sunglass manufacturing brands. To make your presence felt wherever you go, you can follow the guide given below to select a pair:-

Face Shape

The frames of the sunglasses should complement the shape of your face. If you have an oval shaped face, then you can choose any type of goggles-Wayfarers, Aviators and the like. Novelty oversized frames are however a strict no no. As for people with a round shape face, Aviators are not suitable. This is because its curved shape will only highlight the roundness. Angular shaped frames are more suitable.

Oversized frames are ideal for people with long faces. They not only create width, but a sense of balance as well. Wayfarers are most suitable for people with this type of face shape. Square shaped men should go for Aviators as it will highlight their curves. Semi-rimless and John Lennon style frames will form a beautiful contrast with the strong lines.

Heart shaped men have to face issues with narrow chins and wide foreheads. Framing this contrast is often  a big challenge. Round shaped frames will add the much needed balance to this face shape in case rimless ones don’t work out.


Though black sunglasses are commonly used by men, they can overpower people with a pale complexion. If you have fair skin, opt for for more muted shades such as burgundy, emerald and caramel. Rose tinted lenses are ideal for use with a minimal sports luxe attire, while champagne lenses add a touch of class to tailored clothing. However, to ensure that you don’t look loud, don’t always stress on matching the color of your lens with that of your shirt.  

Trendy or Classic-which One to Adopt?

If you are confused as to whether you should opt for a classic pair or something that is more trendy, go for something in between. As in case of other accessories, eyewear trends also come and go. In case you consider opting for a pair that is more trendy, then it will look stylish only for a short span of time. You can opt for timeless classics like Aviators, clubmasters and Wayfarers with black or woodgrain finishing for long term use.
