It’s Summer! There’s no better time to invest in a great pair of shades than now. But which style is right for you? Different sunglasses look better on different faces. Sure, you could try them all out until you find one that works, but if you need a little help, here’s an infographic that’ll help narrow it down for you.
It’s simple: first, you determine your face shape by tracing it in a mirror and comparing it to the shapes on the infographic. Then refer to the second half, which lists your face shape and the sunglass styles that match. (It even explains why those sunglasses are a good fit for you, which is good to remember if you’re ever out without the guide on hand.) Finding the best sunglasses for your face doesn’t have to be rocket science, once you found which style/shape flatters your face best, then you no longer have to be in the dark when it comes to sunnies that suit you best!
Check out the infographic and discover the best sunglasses for your face shape below!

If you’re tired of losing your sunglasses for the last time, don’t fret. There’s an app for that! The Sydney-based company, Tzurkuri – is manufacturing sunglasses that can be located with a mobile application and alert wearers so they will never lose their shades again. You read right, no more lost sunglasses – this could totally change the future of the eyewear industry.
Everyone has felt a pair of sunglasses somewhere at some point. If you’ve forgotten a couple of Ray-Ban sunglasses ($150 and up) or a pair of Tom Ford’s ($500 and up), a pair of Tzukuris might be worth the investment.
The $350 sunglasses aren’t even availble yet, but a limited number can be preoredered for $49 and a remaining $200 will be charged when they ship. Pairs are expected to arrive between November and December of 2014 and will be available internationally as well.
Tzukuri sunglasses are “handmade by the world’s best eyewear artisans in Japan.” Three weeks and 100 individual steps are invested in each pair. They have polarised glass lenses with 100% UV protection and an antireflective and anti-scratch coating.
The beacon that pairs with the Tzukuri iPhone app and alerts wearers when they accidentally leave them somewhere is a pretty remarkable.It is solar-powered but almost unnoticeable in the sunglasses and communicates with a paired device using Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which uses very little battery life. The beacon also uses BLE so an Internet connection isn’t necessary to sending alerts. And the sunglasses are waterproof so wearers don’t have to worry about taking them places they would bring a typically pair of sunglasses.
Depending on the environment, Tzukuri says the beacon has a range of 82 feet but it will alert wearers at 16, 32 and 50 feet between them and their sunglasses. The app also will recognize when a wearer is home, so they aren’t getting unnecessary alerts, and can be used as a locator when they are misplaced at home. The app does not have to be running for sunglasses to send alerts either.
Now that you know there’s an alternative and you never have to lose another pair of sunglasses again, WOULD YOU BUY THEM? Do you think the technology and and design is worth a $350 investment? Sound off below!
