You’re Invited to a Party!
At Brittain Opticians, in Harborne, we are well aware that finding the right pair of sunglasses for your face shape can be no mean feat. There are whole sites online that give advice on the subject, some advise standing in front of the mirror and tracing around your face with a lipstick, while others suggest taking a photo of yourself and using tracing paper to determine your face shape-why not just pop in to see us instead? We have years of experience and can determine what would suit you best.
Sunglasses should be considered a wardrobe essential and we believe this so firmly that we will be holding a sunglasses party at our Harborne store on Saturday 14th May.
For one day only all the shelves will be stocked with sunglasses and some of Brittain’s most exclusive brands will be lending their entire collections for the day. Featured brands, on the day, will be Gotti, Orgreen, MYKITA, FEB31st, Ray-Ban and Maui Jim. Make sure you pop down on the day to purchase your summer 2016 sunnies, we have tons of experience and will make sure you find the perfect pair. In the mean time here’s a little bit of sunglass knowledge we’ve learnt over the years-
Round faces suit geometric shapes, a cats eye frame such as a Face a Face Shine2 will help sharpen soft features, a Ray-Ban, rectangular, aviator will also have the same effect.
Those of you with a square face will need a softer shape, rounder shapes will work well or even a modern cats eye with rounded edges that curve down, MYKITA Philomene is a great example of this style.
Heart shape faces – faces with a broad brow and narrow chin suit bottom heavy frames. If you have a heart shaped face then pop in on the day to try on the ever stylish and classic Ray-Ban aviator style pair.
If you have an oval face then you are very lucky indeed, go wild as you can get away with most frame shapes. If your feeling really adventurous you could try out a MYKITA Gigi, this frame has it all – Round with a double bridge, dark blue and orange with indigo coloured lenses.
If you’re not feeling too adventurous but just want, arguably, the best lenses on the market then Maui Jim has to be the brand of choice, founded in Hawaii in the bright sunshine these lenses will shield your eyes from the glare like no sunglasses have ever done before. With Maui Jim’s polarized lenses you can protect your eyes from harmful UV rays and see the world in its true vivid colours.
A lot of these shapes and styles are quite unisex, so there’s no need trying to decide which category they fit into, simply concentrate on what looks good. We will be available for lots of advice and Brittain Opticians is always stocked with the most fashion forward frames and the best lenses, so don’t forget to drop in for a day of sun and fun on May 14th and you’ll be bang on trend for summer 2016.’
See you soon,
