1. Sunglasses that match your skin tone
First of all, we want to determine your skin tone because this gives you
information about the colour of your next
sunglasses’ frames and lenses.
Cool skin tones
Cool skin tones can be easily determined: If you quickly get sunburned, have blue, green or grey eyes, and have blue veins instead of green, your skin tone is likely to be cool rather than warm.
The best sunglasses for cool skin tones
Some people have a mixture of cool and warm skin tones. You can choose
between warm and cool colour palettes. But what are the best colours for warm
Warm skin tones
Warm skin tones are characterized by tanned skin, brown or black eyes, and green rather than blue veins.
The best sunglasses for warm skin tones
With a warm skin tone, try red, brown, beige, orange, golden or yellow frames. These colours flatter your skin. Choose fiery colours or a juicy brown for your sunglasses lenses. Your lenses will suit your skin and eyes perfectly if you choose colours in these areas.

White and grey hair
Also white hair has a cool and a warm variant. While white hair is rather
cool, grey hair belongs to the warm tones. In general, however, we can recommend

or beige sunglasses as they steal the show from your white hair.
