Spring into style with the SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION from Warby Parker

Warby Parker Spectrum Sun CollectionThe weather is finally warming up here at the beach after a brutal winter and much to my relief I am able to finally pack away my heavy sweaters and coats for lighter apparel and accessories. I have been on the prowl for some really stylish and affordable eyeglasses and sunglasses to jump-start the season and to be honest my D&G’s have seen their best days and I’m not sure I am willing to part with another $300 for frames this year. I recently came across Warby Parker and their SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed with both the style and the price points of the line. The designs include some of the hottest trends for 2014 and they are definitely worth a peek.

I have compiled a mash-up of some of my favorite picks from the SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION to give you just a few styling ideas for Spring 2014.

The ‘cat-eye’ is a nostalgic style that has re-emerged for 2014 and Warby Parker has nailed it with their PIPER model. The PIPER’S shape is more rounded than earlier cat-eye frames and it is available in two awesome color options: Revolver Black and Woodland Tortoise. It is shaped in such a way that you can still show off a perfectly shaped brow line.

I opted to pair the Woodland Tortoise pattern with a sunny yellow dress and gold hinted accessories to complement the frame’s accents. Finish the look with a great transitional pair of faux leather boots, a popular trend this season.

2). Think Pink, Go Green

Pink is going to be a hot color this season and Warby Parker’s MINNIE in Eucalyptus is the perfect accessory. Nothing screams “spring” more than pink and green so for this dose of fashion flavor, I paired this pink sleeveless top and embroidered shorts available at BellaDulce Clothing Boutique along with the MINNIE for a simple, fresh look.¬† The lenses are large and round offering the ultimate glam look. The MINNIE is also available in the color Striped Sassafras.



3). Mix it Up

Spring 2014 will bring plenty of mixing, matching, and contrast. I paired Warby Parker’s DEAN in Striped Olive with a contrasting black and white top, retro style palazzo pants, and in the spirit of pastels, a pair of mint green pumps. When it comes to accessories this season, the more the merrier, layer bracelets, rings, and necklaces for added bling. The DEAN is also available in the color English Oak.

4). Live, love, layer

Warby Parker DowningI absolutely love the look of layered tees but actually layering garments can get pretty uncomfortable as temperatures rise but the great thing about them is that you can peel them off one by one for maximum style. I am a little on the lazy side so I like my layers all-in-one. I dressed up this one-piece, contrasting tank top with Warby Parker’s DOWNING lens from the SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION. I brought out the color accents in the shirt and shorts with a few accessories and in preparation for hot weather, added in a mesh flat.




5). Black & White and Cherry BlossomWarby Parker Hall too

While pink is a popular choice for 2014, black and white is holding strong withstanding the fashion test of time so why not join the two in fashionable matrimony? I love adding colorful accents to black and white styles and figured that the HALL frames in Cherry Blossom from the SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION would make for a savvy collaboration. For this fashion fix, consider a basic black short set with a white blazer and silver accessories or a simple white romper, nix the blazer, add a pair of accented pumps and finish the look with off with the popular HALL frames for a look that is candy sweet and divalicious.

I am so looking forward to updating my specs this season with some pieces from the SPECTRUM SUN COLLECTION.
