Big sunglasses are a trend that keeps coming back. They act as a statement in your look and can dress up even the simplest outfit. But big sunglasses have more benefits than just giving you a chic look. The large fit also helps to protect your eyes and face extra well against the sun's sharp rays.
Protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays
In order for sunglasses to adequately protect your eyes, they must have UV400 in the lenses. The reason for this is that sunglasses with UV400 protect against all UV rays that are equal to or shorter than 400 nanometers. It covers all the harmful UVA and UVB rays. In other words, this means that if you use sunglasses with UV-400, your eyes are 100% protected against the sun's rays. So you can compare it to using sunscreen on your skin when you put on sunglasses.
You can probably imagine how a large pair of sunglasses with UV400 will be able to protect your face and eyes better than a small, narrow pair of sunglasses. Although both sunglasses of course protect your eyes, as long as they contain UV400 in the lenses.
Big sunglasses and well-known style icons
Fashion icon, designer and former member of the iconic pop group Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham is known for almost always wearing large sunglasses. Ideally, they should also be distinctive and cover large parts of the face. Victoria Beckham herself explains that one of the reasons why she is rarely seen without sunglasses is that she is a mother and therefore often sleeps too little!
