TIPS: Finding the perfect pair of sunglasses that are both stylish AND flattering!

Do you agree that finding the right pair of sunglasses that are both stylish and flattering is extremely tricky? Here’s a really great article that helps you find the perfect pair of shades going into spring and summer!

Too big, you look like a bug. Or worse, the goggles hit your cheeks, moving all over the place when you laugh or talk or smile. Too small and, well, what’s the point?

Sunglasses aren’t just accessories, they’re wrinkle-fighting, squint-quashing must-haves for safe sunning. They are hangover hiders, awkward-eye-contact avoiders and more. The trick is to find a pair you love and that improves your look, because if you don’t like ‘em, you won’t wear ‘em right?

Don’t be shy about seeking help finding a pair that suits your face. Do a little research before you head out, and bring along an honest buddy.

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all shades. The size and shape of your face impacts what styles work and which ones don’t, says Eyes on Burrard’s Steven Wilson, an expert on stylish shades.

“You can be trendy as long as it’s proportionate to your face,” Wilson says, adding the first thing he and staffers do is assess a customer’s face shape.

Some styles just don’t work on some faces.

“The biggest challenge is someone getting something in mind that just will not work on their face.”

For instance, someone with a round face — think actress Ginnifer Goodwin, from He’s Just Not That Into You — should avoid wearing round sunglasses.

“You’re looking to complement or contrast,” Wilson says.

“Not match the face shape.”

This rule holds true for square faces or heart-shaped faces too, Wilson says.

Noses are key as well.

If someone doesn’t have a strong bridge, he says, they should buy glasses that have nose pads so they don’t lie flat against the cheeks and can be adjusted.

The easiest face to fit is an oval, he says, pointing out that oval-shaped faces — like Angelina Jolie’s or Halle Berry’s — work well with pretty much any style as long as the proportion is right.

But there is a pair for everyone. It all starts with having an open mind and trying on a few pairs, as many as you need.

Your peepers will thank you.

Do you spend a lot of money on your sunglasses – or do you go cheap?

Jessica Simpson poses nude on the cover of Elle Magazine, and reveals the sex of her baby!

Jessica Simpson has posed nude in a cover very reminiscent of Demi Moore’s famous August 1991 Vanity Fair cover. Jessica, 31, has decided to pose nude for the April cover of Elle Magazine.

In the interview, Jessica reveals the sex of her baby! “She.

And Simpson and Johnson have already come up with a name for their daughter, too — but nothing too out-there in the vein of “Maple” or “Apple!”

“We’re sure,” of the name, the fashion mogul says. “We’re embroidering it on things. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. When people hear it, they’ll know why.”

The Fashion Star mentor admits that it was hard to give up alcohol once she became pregnant. “Givin’ up my Scotch? My Macallan 18? That was hard for me! Though now being pregnant, you crave other things. A big thing of water sounds great!”

On hopes for her daughter’s sense  of style: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!” she blurts out, her Dallas accent swooping back in this moment of heightened anxiety. “Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”

On taking tabloid brutality in stride: “I’m still standin’,” she drawls. “I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”

On her body subconsciously telling her she was pregnant: “We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge,” Simpson says, not shy about saying so. “Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
