Goggles vs. shades are such a subjective thing, balancing aesthetics vs. function. Best advise, due to the variances in helmet openings and size of the goggles, whether you wear regular glasses or not, is to experiment until you find the right mix that functions while appealing to what you consider looks good.
I've acquired a collection of goggles while trying to determine what works and what looks decent to me.
I've about given up on goggles, though. It's been my experience that shades (with the foam behind them) function better due to the convenience of just slipping them on with the strap safety in the back (whether 1/2 helmet or full faced), but I really like the look of goggles. Wearing prescription glasses, googles that account for glasses are nice when the seal is secure. I've found with some goggles, you need to put them on first, then the helmet (which can be a pain) since if they're placed with the strap on the outer shell of the helmet, the goggles just don't seal.
