I have recently discovered affordable eyewear brand Warby Parker and I can't wait to share it with you. Warby Parker brings together my three loves; vintage style, oversized sunglasses and helping others. Okay, okay - all cheese aside - this post is all about introducing Warby Parker and helping you find new ways to wear your glasses and look dazzling in the process.
I have collaborated with Kaki Read, Fashion Coordinator at Warby Parker, to put together this post. The eloquent prose is brought to you by Kaki and the snazzy outfits have been put together by yours truly. Enjoy!
Stylish Looks for Work and Play
There are so many ways to show off your style, not only through fashion but with your accessories as well. Eyeglasses are one type of accessory that provides a fun way to add pizazz to your look. With Warby Parker frames, you can always find just the perfect look to accent your outfits. Hip, stylish glasses frames can give you a studious, edgy, carefree or sporty look, depending on which frames you choose. The fun part is putting your entire look together to match your activity or the occasion.
For an outdoor day trip, you'll want to choose a casual look. But that doesn't mean you have to look sloppy or wear only active wear. Why not start with your favorite jeans, add a vintage graphic tee and throw on a "boyfriend" cardigan for a cozy look? Add cute sneakers or knee-high, flat-heeled boots and you're ready for whatever the day may bring, from a picnic lunch to a walk in the woods. Carry a trendy cross-body bag to keep your hands free while still showing off your style. Don't forget to grab a stylish pair of oversized tortoise or black-framed sunglasses for the perfect final touch.
For a workplace that calls for a "business casual" look, consider a balance between serious and lighthearted by pairing work pieces like black trousers or a pencil skirt with fun pieces like a fitted, striped tee or bright, patterned ballet flats. Or, take a love for denim and choose a dark-wash trouser jean instead of wool trousers, but top them off with a fun ruffled blouse or slim cardigan. Layered necklaces are super popular right now, and can add a bit of polish to a basic tee or crewneck sweater. An oversized clutch in a fun color like orange or turquoise is a great update for any business casual look. Try a thick-framed style for a serious yet trendy air, or go in a different direction by choosing frames in a fun color like sky blue or red.
Remember, the most important thing is to have fun with your style! Accessorize your favorite outfits with jewelry, bags and designer eyeglasses for an overall awesome appearance.
FYI from Kate: Don't worry, this is not a sponsored post and I will not receive any compensation for sales generated by it. A person in need, however, will be provided with a pair of eyeglasses for every pair that you purchase from Warby Parker. You can find out more here.
