Bold and Sophisticated
Love the look of tortoiseshell glasses? This style is for you. Gold rimmed, with a geometric patterned brow in rich caramel hues, this frame takes the classic style to the next level. With handmade acetate and a light metal base, these glasses compliment round faces and slightly wider cheekbones (like mine!).
I've been wearing glasses since i was ten. and I've been a fan of Clearly for years, buying my contacts and eyeglasses from them. I LOVE THE RANGE OF STYLES AND COLOURS WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR SELECTION OF FRAMES. NOT TO MENTION HOW AFFORDABLE THEY ARE! IT MAKES IT SO EASY TO CHANGE UP YOUR LOOK. and whether it's clothes or accessories, come spring and summer, who doesn't love to try out fresh new styles? needless to say, I was excited when I saw their new collaboration with swimwear line, We Are Handsome. when clearly asked me to review the new capsule eyewear collection, I jumped at the opportunity.
A perfect fit for summer, I love this capsule collection. Jeremy Somers, the Creative Director behind We Are Handsome, took three classic Derek Cardigan styles and put a fresh, fun (and in some cases fruity) spin on them. Each has a sophisticated and playful side, and are available as eyeglasses and sunnies as well. Of the three styles, I really loved the Geometric Gold frames that I'm wearing in these photos. All the frames are handcrafted in Mazzuchelli's handmade Italian acetate so the quality is stellar, and so is the price (only $95!). And as with any glasses you can buy from Clearly, each come with free standard air lenses. I work in front of the computer for hours and hours each day, so I opted for the Kodak BlueReflect™ lenses which help any glare and strain caused by your screen or office lights. And let me tell you, they make a huge difference.
If you haven't shopped for glasses online before, fret not. Clearly has a couple tools and tricks that will guide you along the way. The Face Shape Guide helps you decide which frames will suit you best. Oval, heart, round.. it's the perfect guide to finding a flattering fit. And if you have a current pair of glasses, you can enter your measurements into the MyFit tool to have Clearly recommend a selection of great fitting glasses.
VINTAGE WITH A TWIST
Who doesn't love a classic 60s cat eye frame? Sophisticated from the front, this style is bold, with a punchy print on the along the arms of the frame. And the angled frame is so well suited for rounded jaws and soft features.
STYLE 7044-55 FRUCTOSE
