Buying the Right Sun Glasses for your St. Maarten Vacation

St. Maarten


You’re in the sunny Caribbean so sunglasses are highly recommended but know that UV protection is one of the most important things to look for if you’re seeking sun protection rather than buying them to wear in the evening to try to look cool. (which you don’t) Sunglasses should have lenses that block 99 to 100% of UVA and UVB radiation. Some sunglasses come with polarized lenses which help reduce glare.

Think about what you will be using these sunglasses for. If they are more for a sporty lifestyle, lightweight, plastic sunglasses will be more useful. If they are a fashion statement, there are innumerable designer shades available in various shapes, colors and styles in St. Maarten’s stores.

Choosing the right pair of sunglasses can be a challenge but part of the fun is trying them on. Here are a few guidelines for the right sunglasses for your face shape:

Square Face: Add length and softness to your face by wearing sunglasses that are rounder and not as wide as the widest part if your face.

Oval Face: Most sunglasses will flatter this face shape. Just make sure the glasses are proportionate.

Round Face: Frames with straight or angular lines like rectangular glasses cab sharpen your features and give you a better shape.

Diamond Face: Look for frames that add width above your cheekbones
Like oval or rimless glasses.


Rectangular Face: Frames that are big and round will add width to your face.

Given the great duty-free prices on St. Maarten, St. Martin and all the shops that specialize in sunglasses alone and offer a much greater selection than you will see in the States, this is the perfect place to buy a pair of designer, fashion or sports sunglasses. Don’t forget that kids need sunglasses too so also look for children’s sunglasses with adequate UV protection for their eyes.
