Since Corona, home office has become the new normal for almost everyone, but this week we’re celebrating the official Work from Home Day! “What’s there to celebrate?”, some of you may be wondering now? Well, we’re going to show you! With a few little tricks, your home office time can almost be as exciting as time spent in the office. Except for your dear colleagues, whom you surely miss as much as we do.

1. Get out of those sweatpants!

We know how tempting it can be to slip straight from pajamas into comfy sweatpants, especially when no one behind the camera can see your cozy bottoms. But we promise you, even if no one but you is home, you’ll start the day off feeling a lot better if you’ve taken a few minutes to pick out a nice outfit. Not only will this be good for your well-being, but it will also get you back into the right work routine. Then, when you swap your work clothes for something casual in the evening, you can officially end your work day and feel more relaxed.

2. Goodbye distractions

The laundry pile is calling, the dishwasher is beeping and you’d like to vacuum right away when you see a few crumbs on the ground. We have all been there! When you’re at home, it’s easy to get distracted by your household and other small everyday tasks. But wait – working from home means you have to hold yourself accountable and stay productive. To manage all this, try setting aside blocks of time where you consciously do something for the household. Also, it can help to write down what distracts you for a week and then tackle those things. Another deciding factor is your work location, but we’ll get to that in the next paragraph.

3. Where to put all the work stuff?

The ideal solution for a perfect home office, would be to have an extra room that can be used for work. Of course, this isn’t possible for everyone, so we recommend setting up at least a small corner that can be used as a workspace and doesn’t have to be constantly moved aside. If you prefer a little variety, you can also switch between different places and set up a small and light desk which can be moved around easily. Also, don’t underestimate a comfortable chair and good light – your eyes and back will thank you later!

4. Blue light filters to prevent tired eyes and headaches

Speaking of eyes – if you work a lot in front of a screen, you will notice that your eyes get irritated and tired after a long day in front of the laptop. Our eyes are exposed to daily radiation, the so-called high-energy blue light that many electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones or tablets transmit. To solve this problem, we have developed our glasses with proven blue light filter technology. Your eyes will be protected from this radiation through our special lenses that filter out blue light and UV rays. This process relieves the strain on our eyes and makes us feel fitter and more alert. Perfectly in line with this we are releasing six new pairs of glasses on May 22 to help to focus on your work and keep an eye on your home office routine. Maybe you’ll find your new fashion accessory with practical benefits in our assortment of glasses – after all, you don’t need to have poor eyesight to create a cool look with glasses.

Ultimately, what matters most is that you feel comfortable and can work well. Some people tick differently than others – try to find out for yourself what you need to create the ideal home office! Of course, we hope you can use our tips to make your time working from home a little more productive!

Are you looking for a new pair of glasses and are having trouble finding the perfect model while also being unsure which shape best fits your face? Then you are at the right place, we are here to help you find the perfect pair with our Kapten & Son glasses fit-guide! We have collected great tips that can help you find the right style for your face! Our fit-guide will be useful for finding new sunglasses or even a cool pair of blue light filter glasses that are beneficial for the office.

It’s a match – fundamentals for finding the perfect pair of glasses

As already established, when looking for a pair of glasses, you have to make sure that the shape fits to your face. With so many different styles out there it is challenging to find the best suiting pair of glasses for your face. Even though every face is unique, there are basically four different shapes to go by. Therefore, we distinguish between oval, angular, round and heart shaped faces. To discover what shape best describes your face; we have listed characteristics of each shape and found compatible glasses from our collection to go with them. So let’s find your new eyecatcher!

Oval face – Every style is possible

Is your face rather longer than wider? And are your cheeks the widest part of your face? Then you have an oval shaped face and are one of the lucky people that are able to wear any style of glasses. You can rock any shape, no matter if it’s cat-eye glasses, round pilot ones or if they have rectangular lenses. You can simply try on any style while always looking fabulous; so take advantage of your face that was made to wear glasses by adding the perfect eyewear accessory to your outfits.

Our sunglasses recommendation: any pair from Amsterdam to Valencia – there is no limit to your sunglass collection! Our blue light filter glasses recommendation: from Belleville to Williamsburg – the decision is yours!

Heart shaped face – Cupid’s favorite

When you look in the mirror and can make out a heart on your face then you might not only be hit by cupid’s arrow but also have a heart shaped face that indicates a wider forehead, distinctive cheekbones and a small chin. So when it comes to choosing glasses you have to be careful that you don’t make your forehead stand out and instead find a pair that makes your chin less pointy. We therefore recommend choosing round or oval glasses to give the face a gentle touch that compensate for the chin and forehead. With this little tip, we are sure you will find the right glasses that will make your heart skip a beat.

Our sunglasses recommendation: Maui, Fitzroy, Berkeley, Amsterdam and London Our blue light filter glasses recommendation: Bondi, Marais and Stratford

Angular face – the specialist for edges

Are your forehead, cheeks and jaw around the same size? Then you belong to the people with an angular shaped face. To not lose your facial features you should get round glasses that put emphasis on your features while also adding a little bit of delicacy. In addition, cat-eye and the so-called pilot glasses also work well with your face – we love an edgy look.

Round face – soft and gentle features

Round faces are often characterized as the face that has gentle features. Through the round chin and an even balance between the width and length of the face; people with round faces generally fit rectangular glasses or uniquely shaped ones. Those wider frames add a balance to your soft and gentle features by making it appear longer.

Our sunglasses recommendation: Nice, Moscow, Florence, Orlando, Milan and San Francisco Our blue light filter glasses recommendation: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Glendale and Pasadena

Alright Kaptens, we hope that you were able to figure out which shape your face belongs to and that our glasses fit-guide will help you make a decision which eyewear style to pick. Nevertheless, we would also like to note that when choosing a frame style, the main focus should be your personal taste and comfort needs. Therefore, our glasses fit guide is just a little helping tool but in the end you should get the glasses that you absolutely love and never want to take off.
