Ask Laurie: How to Shop for Sunglasses?

Dear Laurie, I’m ready to add a fresh pair of sunglasses to my summer repertoire, but there are so many options out there. Where should I begin? —Samantha S.

Dear Samantha, Unlike other accessories, you wear sunglasses daily, which is why choosing the right pair feels like a bigger commitment. And while knowing what works best for your face shape is half the battle, there’s more to it than that. I asked Garrett Leight (he of the eponymous eyewear brand) to weigh in. “I’ve always felt that picking out sunglasses is a very personal choice and is different for everyone. But what’s most important is feeling confident in whatever pair you choose. It should just feel right,” says Garrett. Below, a shopping guide, plus some more words of eyewear-shopping wisdom from Mr. Leight.
