There is so much to love about Spring. Warmer weather that doesn't make you melt, bright and lively colors all around, and best of all new fashions.
This is, of course, not limited to clothing. Having worn glasses for years, I've always loved finding new styles. While usually more conservative in my eyeglass choices, there are so many beautiful selections out there, and companies like Warby Parker provide affordable options.
This spring their eyeglass frames, which can be found here, have some nautical inspirations. Personally, my mind immediately goes to anchors and boating ropes, among all of the other oceanic symbols. This collection, however, takes nautical to a more sophisticated level. They pull in beautifully bright blues and colorful tortoise shell to make some not so basic eyewear.
Below are some of my favorite pieces from the collection which includes vibrant hues as well as some more basic essentials. It was hard to pick just one!
The first option is the Carnaby frame in blue coral. With hints of a beautifully vibrant shade of blue, this frame has a classic shape. The mix of brown and blue prevent the frames from getting too loud, but the unexpected color still keeps them exciting.
My next selection is the Daisy frame in striped molasses. The thinner rounded frames are absolutely gorgeous! While it does come in a brighter color option, I think the neutral tone really lets you focus on the shape rather than being distracted by too much color.
My final choice is the Brooks frame in striped pacific - I'm clearly into the striped detail for this seasons frames. This more square frame with wire detail comes in a beautiful sea green. In this shade, the stripes give the rippling effect of the ocean over a beautifully white sandy beach.
The best part about Warby Parker's frames, aside from the beautiful selection, is that they give back to communities. What I love about the non-profits they work with, is that they don't just give away glasses, but they teach locals the skills needed to provide their own eye exams as well as sell affordable eyeglasses. They are doing more than giving the gift of sight, they are providing people with a sustainable future by creating jobs in their local communities.
