What do Audrey Hepburn, the Olsen sisters, and Jackie Onassis have in common besides their fashion sense? If your answer is their signature sunglasses, then you got it right. Think of Jackie Onassis on Skorpios in a headscarf and a bug-eyed eyepiece, Audrey Hepburn in her Breakfast at Tiffany’s black Manhattan frames, or Ashley and Mary-Kate was walking around New York City in their big bags, big layers, and their cartoonish big sunglasses.
As far as iconic and game-changing fashion accessories go, eyepieces like sunglasses are at the top of the food chain. These things can reshape people’s faces. And, of course, these things serve a purpose. The big question is, how to find the right pair that is right for you?

Close in on your best fit and shape
Believe it or not, there is a science to which frame shapes will look to which face shapes. According to experts, if a person has a square-shaped face, they want round-shaped frames with soft edges to help soften and balance rectangular shapes. Oval-shaped faces can wear almost anything, but they can wear cat-eye and oversize shades since it is the most flattering style that suits their face shape.
People with a heart-shaped face, which is a lot broader along the eyebrow compared to their jawline, check out round, trim, and thin-style frames, which can help draw out their delicate jawline. Beyond the scale, there is the question of comfort and fit.
People need to get their money’s worth
So what is the difference between a $5 pair of eyewear and a $200 one? Or a $200 pair and their $500 counterpart? The answer is design and materials. Other things can help increase the price of an item, but the question is, are they worth it? Does the sunglasses have 100% Ultraviolet-A and Ultraviolet-B protection, as well as polarized lenses to help minimize squinting and glare? If the eyepiece is worn almost every day, experts recommend that they think of these items in terms of cost per wear. Think about how practical (or impractical) these things as an investment.
Are the eyepieces polygamists or monogamists?
In today’s modern age of endless alternative options, does it tie itself to one pair of sunglasses? To get a better perspective, people have one signature pair but usually ruled out particular styles. Some people stopped wearing certain styles when they cut or color their hair because it would not look good. People always come back to one specific style, for instance, an aviator or Oakley glasses, no matter what season of the year or what style of clothes are trending.
People own more than one pair of glasses, but there are three or four pieces they return to no matter what. Most people do not have a signature pair, but they do have signature shapes or colors. Some like rounded-style or rectangular ones. Some like black, brown, or white-colored frames.
Expert’s word of advice
Do not lose your favorite pair of sunglasses. These things go on your face or in the bag. Do not put it on the table or on your lap. Purchase eyepieces in classic shape or recurring style so that if something unfortunate happens to them, they are replaceable. Even Jackie O had backups. It is rumored that she had a bowl filled with her favorite sunglasses in her home’s entryway.
