Stylish Sunglasses

By Helen Lee

Nothing's more necessary during the summer than a good pair of sunglasses. They protect your eyes from sun damage, give you a glamorous movie star look, and even make chic hairbands. Get the lowdown on summer's must-have accessory!

Style + Function

Did you know that every day, your eyes use about the same amount of energy your legs would use if you walked 50 miles? Add the harsh glare of the sun to that and your eyes will get strained pretty fast! That's why it's so important to wear sunglasses - but not just any kind. A good pair has lenses that block 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays - and you're not going to get that kind of protection with the $20 pair you picked up at the drugstore. Sure, they may be cheap and stylish, but you need sunglasses that combine style with eye protection. A good pair may cost a bit of dough (at least $100), but the combination of your allowance, an after-school job and begging should help you out.

The Right Styles

While oversized shades continue to be one of the hottest styles of the moment, Ray-Ban Wayfarers have made a huge comeback from the '80s. Seen on every celebrity you can name, including Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, the Jonas Brothers and Ashlee Simpson, Wayfarers are totally funky cuz they come in a selection of fun pop colors! So forget basic blacks, ditch the boring browns and go for red, yellow, white, or turquoise.

The Right Fit

Picking out a flattering pair of sunglasses isn't as easy as it looks. So keep this rule of thumb in mind when you go shade shopping - the frame shape should be the opposite of your face shape!
  • If you have a round face, choose rectangular frames that'll make your face appear longer and thinner.
  • If you have a heart-shaped face, then rimless styles are perfect for you.
  • If you have a square face, go for a round, oval, or cat's eye design, which will reduce your sharp angles.
  • If you have a rectangular face, pick square or round shapes like the ones John Lennon made famous cuz they'll shorten a long face.
  • If you have an oval face, well then lucky for you cuz any style works!

    My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

    Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.

    one day I was eating lunch with my friends and two boys, (I'm a girl). when one boy told his friend and some other people, everyone but me who he had a crush on. At the end of lunch someone told me and it was me, later on he confirmed it and his friend told us he was on the verge of tears because I found out. people were telling everyone he liked me. Earlier I told him I liked him as not to make him feel bad, he told his friend who told everyone. soon rumors were started my best friend and his had teamed up to make an unstoppable rumor making and spreading team.  on monday it was our all day field trip and he needed to tell me something so on the way back we sat together across from his friend. She asked him if he still liked me. I covered my eyes but could still see and he was saying no but nodding his head. I told him to just tell me and he said yes. By then the rumors were getting really bad so in order to stop them we started hanging out, and became best friends. its summer now and we text each other all the time but we are just friends the rumors have blown over but now another has become true. through all of this,  I really like him now. I don't know I f he still likes me but I know that I really want him too because I really like him now! What do I do? Please help me! I'm so lost! this is all like a nightmare! what if it starts again. What do I do!
