How To Choose The Perfect Sunglasses

If you’re looking to buy new sunglasses which ones do you choose? There’s so many options; big, small, square, round, black, red? The list goes on. The good news is it’s easy to find the perfect sunglasses when you know what you’re looking for. There are 2 key things to identify before you begin your search for new shades:

  1. You want to know your face shape. We suggest looking at a photo or taking a selfie to determine your face shape. Generally, your perfect sunglasses will be the opposite to your face shape.
  2. You want to make sure the sunglasses you’re buying are made from quality materials. It’s simply not worth the risk. For a few extra dollars you get peace of mind knowing you’re fully protected against harmful UV damage.

Now that you’ve got your face shape it's time to find your perfect sunglasses. We’ve put together the below guide to help you identify which styles suit your face shape.

Fun fact: Research has found that 75% of people are concerned about UV damage to their eyes, yet only 31% wear sunglasses when they go outside. credit

Square Face

 

You have a square face if you have a strong jaw that’s basically the same width as your forehead. Your perfect sunglasses will soften the strong features of your face and balance everything out. Look for sunglasses with soft round frames. They don’t have to be completely round, but you want to avoid sharp angles and square frames at all costs.

Round Face

 

A round face is wide across the cheekbones and narrow across the forehead and chin. Your perfect sunglasses are rectangular and will offset the roundness of your face. Almost giving the illusion that your face is more angular than it actually is.

Long Face

 

 

A long face is significantly longer than it is wide. Your perfect sunglasses will not extend wider than the widest part of your face. You don’t want your face to look any slimmer by making this mistake. Those in the long face category are fortunate enough to be able to choose between square and round styles, as either shape will compliment their face.

Triangular Face

 

You have a triangular face if your forehead is a lot wider than your chin. Your perfect sunglasses will be square in shape to balance out your features. We recommend looking at styles that are slightly wider at the top of the frame than they are at the bottom of the frame.

Australia's Best Sunglasses

We started Hungry Eyewear in 2013 because we increasingly felt we couldn’t find a set of sunnies that reached the height of high-quality design and craftsmanship we expected. We felt that customers were paying far too much for badly manufactured products, and that brands were far too focused on making money.

As a result, we’ve grown from our start-up roots in Melbourne, but the need to disrupt the sunglasses industry remains a chief driving factor. We frequently look to overseas markets and cultures for inspiration, with Japanese culture being one of our favourite places to start when designing our “edgy and bold” products. If you love to try new things, don't conform to the norm and have an affinity with the Land of the Rising Sun's superior craftsmanship, our shades will be right up your alley.

So we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been chosen as one of Australia’s best sunglasses vendors for travellers!

The holiday insurance company, Bupa, has compiled a list of the most preeminent brands and stockists across the country so you can find the sleek and authentic shades for your next globetrotting jaunt. The featured designs are guaranteed to ‘keep you on trend no matter where you are in the world’, says Bupa.

Hungry Eyewear is sure to satiate all your sunglasses cravings with stand-out styles and trademark looks. Our formula for creating premium designer sunglasses for the masses has been recognised in the round-up, which says we speak ‘to those who pride themselves on individual expression, adventure seeking, style and technology’.

The article entitled, ‘Australia’s Best Sunglasses for Travellers’, recommends our Mad Dans shades, with their circular lenses fitted in a thick, black and grey-stippled frame, for the young, the vibrant and the dynamic. Sound like you? These frames are just one of the many classic silhouettes we have reinvented to achieve the right look for your travels abroad and onshore.

We’re not only inspired by Japan, we also exclusively use high-quality Japanese acetate for our frames. This means that our sunnies are tough, as well as fashionable. They come in an incredible range of colours, are long lasting, and use UV400 polarised lenses to prevent glare and protect your eyes.

Hungry to see the world in a totally new light? Get your eyes behind your next pair of edgy and bold sunnies.
