5 Tips to Find the Perfect Pair of Wooden Sunglasses

Wooden sunglasses are not only stylish but also eco-friendly. So, not only will you be making a fashion statement with wooden sunglasses, but you'll also be doing your part for the environment.

It's a win-win situation!

Here are a few tips to help you find the ideal pair of wooden sunglasses:

Tip 1: Figure Out Your Face Shape

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a pair of wooden sunglasses is your face shape.

This will help you narrow your options and find a pair that complements your features.

Not sure what your face shape is?

Use a soft tape measure or piece of string to determine the following:

  • Forehead: Measure across your forehead at the widest point.
  • Cheekbones: Measure across your cheekbones, starting and ending at the pointiest part.
  • Jawline: Measure from the tip of your chin to the bottom of your earlobe.

Once you have these measurements, compare them to see which is the largest.

  • You have an oval face shape if your forehead and jawline are roughly the same size, with slightly wider cheekbones.
  • You have a heart-shaped face if your cheekbones are the widest point and your jawline tapers to a small chin. And so on.

Once you know your face shape, finding a pair of wooden sunglasses that flatters it will be a breeze!

Tip 2: Compare Different Styles

The best way to narrow your options is to compare different styles side-by-side. Think about what you want in a pair of sunglasses.

  • Do you want something big and bold, like our BELLA MIDNIGHT sunnies?
  • Do you want a pair that's all wood or one with metal accents like our BANJO gradient lenses?

Once you have a general idea of what you're looking for, it'll be easier to find the perfect pair for you.

Tip 3: Consider the Overall Design

The overall design of the sunglasses should complement your face shape and personal style.

If you want a more classic look, choose a pair with a simple and timeless design. The LILA GRACE offers a contemporary twist on the timeless cat-eye shape, with its design being meticulously crafted to complement every facial structure.

Choose a pair with an intricate or eye-catching pattern if you want something more unique. The ZAHRA OPAL TORT sunnies are perfect for making a statement!

Whatever your style, make sure the design of the sunglasses reflects who you are.

Tip 4: Complement Your Complexion

When choosing a pair of wooden sunglasses, it is important to consider your complexion.

  • If you have a fair complexion, you will want to avoid sunglasses with dark wood frames as they can overwhelm your face. Instead, opt for lighter wood frames or even clear-lensed glasses.

The ZAHRA sunglasses come in a stylish cream finish, accentuating the beauty of its white maple wood arms.

  • You can wear just about any color frame if you have a medium or olive complexion.
  • If you have a darker complexion, you can go for it with richly colored wooden frames.

Tip 5: Make Sure They are Durable and Comfortable

If you've found a pair of wooden sunglasses that you like the look of, the next thing to consider is how durable and comfortable they are.

It is essential to ensure that the wooden sunglasses are made from high-quality materials that will withstand regular wear and tear. The last thing you want is for your new sunglasses to fall apart after just a few uses!
