I've been a wearer of glasses since I was about seven years old, so you can bet I've had my fair share of frames. And, well, there's not a great way to say this... sometimes glasses don't look that great.
But Warby Parker has found a way to make glasses, well, cool again. Their new Beacon collection - four styles of eyeglasses and sunglasses in all - is inspired by all the best parts of being young, wild, and free.
From their one sheet:
"Our Beacon collection is inspired by impromptu, can't-duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities. [...] The collection name is a hat-tip to the morning star, which you can catch just after sunset or just before sunrise, depending on the time of the year. We designed our Beacon collection frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between."I just love that! It sounds like my Pinterest boards come to life. So, I thought I'd share a few ways to style these fantastic new frames, since Warby Parker is making brainy the new sexy. (Sherlock reference anyone?)
Geek Goes Grunge
I just love the flannel shirt/combat boots combination, and I honestly can't wait til fall to start rocking it again (don't hate me).
The frames featured here are Warby Parker's McKee style in Whiskey Tortoise.

Prep School Drop Out
I love all the fun, preppy details in this. And I'm really digging that cardigan, no lie.
These frames are Warby Parker's Garrett in Oak Barrel.
New Century Nancy Drew
Okay, I had a little bit too much fun with this one. Yes, that is a magnifying glass necklace. I would straight up wear this every day, though. And I really want that dress.
These frames are Warby Parker McKee in Moonstone.
