What Are The Best Color Sunglasses For My Skin?

When it comes to sunglasses, how do you choose the right color to match your style? Do you go all-out with a highlighter-yellow hue or play it cool with classic black? But actually, knowing your skin tone is important. Not only will you be able to better protect your eyes and skin from the sun’s harmful rays but you’ll also be able to match clothing, accessories and hair color to better suit your body’s skin color. 

Color theory explains exactly how this works, but, let’s be real, they make it way too complicated. So to simplify things, here are the two things you need to determine which color of sunglasses is best for your skin.

• Determine whether your skin tone is cool or warm.

Cool Skin Tone: pink/blue skin tones with blue veins. If you burn easily at the beach or when you spend time outside, you have lighter, cooler-colored skin. 

Warm Skin Tone: yellow/copper / darker skin tones with green veins. You remain dark or “tan” typically all year around, and don’t burn as easily when you go out in the sun.
