25 Apr Matchy-Matchy, Color Me Happy
If you’ve ever seen my Instagram, you’ll know that I love COLOR. So, it’s no wonder that I am flocking fast to pick up fresh, bold colored frames with see-through lenses. Even if the shape is a classic or throwback silhouette, the bright-as-a rainbow, candy colors help to keep the look modern.
Here, I’ve picked up a gorgeous Karen Walker pair handcrafted of glossy orange acetate and put together a monochromatic look. When paired with my tangerine bodycon Chiara Boni La Petite Robe dress, with it’s clean lines and it’s asymmetric neckline with a keyhole cutout, my matchy matchy sunnies just take the look above and BEYOND. Ms. Walker’s oval shaped Castaway sunglasses are equipped with matching lightly tinted orange UV protective lenses that don’t hide your eyes. Orange tints in eyewear enhance contrast and depth perception, making them helpful for overcast, hazy, and foggy conditions. Wear these on a day when you need a little pick me up, or when your already feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed to put an extra little pep in your step!
For my second look in this series, I kept on with the colorful palette by choosing super fun tone-on-tone transparent aqua Celine frames with matching solid transparent aqua lenses. Bluish tints such as this one help reduce glare and enhance color perception. Blue tinted lenses have also been said to have a calming effect for those with anxiety or “visual stress.” The thick circular acetate frames up the retro allure of these spectacular sunglasses fitted with brightly tinted lenses. While I’m sure you can tell I’m not exactly a boho type of gal, the shape is definitely a throwback to the ’60s and ’70s. Groovy baby yeah!
I’ve coupled my shades with this amazingly flirty ruffled linen aqua colored mini dress by Alexis, with it’s perfectly frayed edges and a precise fit. Pretty soon, I’ll be blending in with the turquoise waters on the beaches of Turks and Caicos in no time. Can someone say vacation mode?
