It’s Summer, time to grab those sunnies…
I’m a sucker for sunglasses, I think they’re some of the best accessories in the summer. They’re not just cute, but they’re also extremely functional and practical. What more could you want?! They’re perfect for most any occasion (assuming the sun is shining) and they can add a little bit extra to even the most basic outfits.
Warby Parker has some very exciting news, their new range of glasses (both sun and eye) are to be released this week. This range of glasses was to be something completely new and fresh for the brand, and they did that by going vintage remade. The glasses have a distinct 1950’s vibe but are a little more cleaned up and structured.
Both the sunglasses and the eyeglasses feature a very prominent and structured top frame with a think wire bottom frame. These stark contrast is very visually pleasing to the eye and while some attempt at this type of design may seem off balance or top heavy/bottom weak, the Warby Parker glasses are nicely equalized.
This collection dubbed the “New Classics” has three main designs with varying colors in each design. Each design comes in both regal eyeglasses and sunglasses. The three designs are named Hayes, Addie and Eliot. While all three look fairly similar, there are minute differences such as the width of the top frame and the exact shape of the lenses which allows people to stick with a similar style but find the exact design that suits them the best.
Warby Parker is a mostly online retailer, with few select stores. They offer a Home Try-On service where you can pick 5 frames to try on for 5 days (with free shipping) and once you find and purchase the once you like, you return the 5 and they’ll send you your new fresh glasses. This way, you’ll never have to deal with that horrible ordeal of ordering something online and hating it in person.
I am personally very excited about this collection. I think that it’s gorgeous and I’m loving the mixture between the heavy top and wire bottom. I highly recommend checking the glasses out if you’re in the market for some new ones. You can find more information about their glasses here.
