Girls Who Wear Glasses

June 24, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I should wear glasses more. I’m so used to wearing my contact lenses, but I know glasses are better for me. I have one fantastic tortoiseshell pair that I picked up in Denmark, but I’m always on the look out for a new pair.

So I was very excited to see a new eyewear collection from one of my favourite labels, Country Road. There’s 24 in the collection for women and men, a mix of classic blacks and browns, as well as colours like redcurrant and deep purple. Better yet, Country Road have partnered with Specsavers to offer two pairs for the price of one, starting at $199.

Henry Roth, mentor of Project Runway Australia and one of our favourite spec wearers, has chosen his favourite frames from the collection:

“Beauty and the Geek: ‘Geek chic’ is still massive in the fashion world and it is eyewear that’s really leading this trend. We’re still seeing those classic Clark Kent frames, but not as thick as last season to give a more refined feel.”

Country Road SKU number: 25176889

“Simply Natural: Nudes are back, seeing earthy neutral tones on runways all over the world. If you do dare to bare this season, contrast is key to avoid looking washed-out. Accessories, such as eyewear are great for this; rich, warm colours, bold patterns and thicker frames really help to compliment
this look.”

Country Road SKU number: 25160710

“Detail, detail, detail! Fashion designers are focusing on fine features and tailoring more than ever before, which is particularly important for delicate eyewear. Look for added texture and dimension, including patterned arms and indented frames to bring your look up to date.
