Get Shady!

Whether it's to shield your hungover eyes from the too bright morning, hide that shiner or simply protect your eyes, sunglasses multitask to keep you healthy, looking good and even let you go incognito. They range from big, bulky plastic frames to delicate and frameless. They can also cost more than next month's rent or be purchased on the street for a few bucks.

Dainty or chunky, cheap or expensive, how do you know which sunglasses are right for you? Jude Morales, a Lenscrafters optician at the Tucson Mall, shared her expertise:

"Most styles today are unisex. Though there used to be set rules for what shape frame fit what shape face, now it's as simple as looking in the mirror and seeing what looks good and what's comfortable. Does it call your name? Is it your style and your image?"

A lot of students are doing it and they should be. Morales warned that not wearing sunglasses can cause cataracts, damage skin tissue and increase chances of premature wrinkling.

As long as you check yourself out in the mirror and check for UV protection, your pair of sunglasses should be right for you. For once, you not only have permission but encouragement to act shady!
