10 Tips for Choosing the Best SunglassesSo hot – the perfect shades. We put them on, the moment the sun peeps from behind the clouds. We push them up into our hair, the moment it starts to get dark. And we never let go of them. They are with us all the time, our constant companion, whether it's hot or not.

In the Silhouette collections there is a model for every taste and every style. All you have to do is choose. Silhouette has put together 10 tips for you so that nothing can go wrong.
1. The sunglasses should not pinch or be too tight, otherwise they will quickly become torture. Good reason to go for glasses in high-tech titanium or SPX polymer compound. These are what make the glasses lightweight, fit for anything. And they never irritate!
2. Think about where and when you wear sunglasses most. Do you need them for sporting activities? For strolling around town? Do you often vacation at the waterside? Or do you need glasses for driving? Depending on your need, you may opt for a rugged pair in a sporty design, stylish full frame sunglasses or a classic-cool model with special polarized filters that are ideal for combatting the strong glare of water surfaces or asphalt.

4. Safe and secure: Only glasses that can withstand the strong forces of impact in case of emergency are permitted for driving. Moreover, the field of vision should not be too restricted. The main thing is to keep an eye on things while on the road. Rimless models are ideal.
