My sunglasses are the last accessory I put on before I leave my house. They are the final touch that ties together each carefully selected piece of clothing into an outfit. My go-tos have always been my wayfarers, from matte blue and matte nude to tortoise shell and classic black. But once in a while I like to mix it up with a more fashion forward, avant-garde set of frames that are runway ready but still affordable.
Enter Framed Glasses, an e-commerce sunglasses brand from California that does just that. Hip? Check. Trendy? Check. Affordable? YES. Not only does Framed Glasses offer a variety of frames, colors and finishes mixing avant-garde with modern and classic, they all are only $8.99! When the Framed Glasses team contacted us at Stitch & Strut, it was a match made in Carrie Bradshaw's closet (that's fashion heaven after all, right?).
My favorite pair from the line has to be the Casablanca in black. These shades are classically cool with their cat eye frames yet modernized with their rounded purple lenses. I felt both Audrey Hepburn and Eartha Kitt, styling my outfit around these sunnies with a black Forever 21 dress and Capsule by Cara statement necklace from Target.
Fonzi opted for the Polcarbo frames in black. These edgy, matte frames are an avant-garde, contemporary take on the classic wayfarer with a rounded base and more straight-lined top. For details on his styling, checkout this week's Menswear Monday post.
