Corner Collection by Warby Parker

Sunglasses and glasses are always a staple no matter what season you’re in. Maybe you want to buy sunnies for the fall or ditch your contacts for the new school year. If you’re someone like me, I have a hard time finding a sleek and chic pair of sunnies that are absolutely perfect and flexible to wear year round. Finding the perfect pair of sunnies or everyday glasses lies in the shape in the frame and if it’s flattering for your face shape. If you fall into that category, I am pleased to announce that Warby Parker has released the Corner Collection today.

The Corner Collection experiments with traditional shapes with unique shades of horn-inspired acetate and stainless steel. The collection consists of five new frames—Hutton, Topper, Goodney, Teddy, and Quentin. Each of these frames have a really cool aesthetic, yet gives a classic and effortless vibe. Each of the styles come in two new hues as well—Rhubarb and Quartz. These two colors are perfect and flattering for the warm and cooler months as well.

I’ve recently come to terms that a lovely classic cat eye looks great on me. The Goodney has a cat eye shape, yet it is revamped in a way. This frame will bring together and polish any look. The Goodney readers would look amazing for someone who’s going back to school or for someone who wants to revamp their look. A stylish pair of readers or everyday glasses will start your school year or a job on the right foot. I centered this look around the Goodney glasses, keeping it simple, yet classic and trendy. I’m in love with the oversized coat trend, so I thought this grey Purity coat from Weekday was perfect. To complete the look I also opted for a white Slit Blouse from Weekday, Paisie Peg Leg Trousers from John Lewis, Miu Miu sneakers, and a Mulberry Mini Cara Delevingne Nappa backpack.

Embracing Pink, the Punk and Grungy Way.

Hello everyone! Thanks for tuning in for this weeks Trendy Tuesday.

Image

Surprisingly, blush is in for the fall and winter. Many people have been scared to incorporate pink into their wardrobe because it can come off as extremely girly. Since it’s a trend for the fall/winter, the task at hand is to make sure we incorporate pink in a darker and cooler fashion. I have have seen many looks with blush overcoats and jackets, so I thought it would be awesome to switch it up a little. These looks were very polished and sophisticated. The looks I have created have a dark element to them and are grungy, while keeping the chic aspect.

ImageThe first look was something very affordable and reminded me of like a super cool street style look. Keeping in mind all of the students, interns, and employees who have a tighter budget, should be able to embrace this trend, while sporting quality looks. I thought this outfit was perfect because every garment pulls this look together. The statement piece, the blush skirt, in this look is the circle skirt. I decided to pair the statement piece with a light colored sweater as well as a chunky black suede moto jacket, black bowler hat and chelsea boots. If you live on the East coast don’t be afraid to wear some black opaque tights under the skirt. The dark elements of this look balance out the lightness of the skirt and sweater. Here’s where you can get these items:

  1. Quilted Panel Suede Jacket from Mango
  2. Hatch Knit Sweater from weekday.com
  3. Pink Mini Skirt from fashionunion.com
  4. Flora Boot from Aritzia
  5. Cambridge Satchel Company 15′ Satchel from piperline.gap.com
  6. Topshop ‘Pork Pie’ Bowler Hat from Nordstrom
  7. Givenchy Beauty Dahlia Noir Eau de Parfum from Barneys
  8. O.P.I Coney Island Cotton Candy Nail Lacquer from liberty.co.uk
  9. Michael Kors ‘Runway’ Chronograph Watch from Nordstrom

ImageThe second look I’ve created is something for people with a wider budget. Just like the first outfit this look is still perfect to wear in the workplace, at school, or out with some friends. The statement piece of this look it the pink cashmere sweater with the black collar and the stud detailing. This was a great piece because the black collar and stud detail sets this sweater apart from the rest. It already has an edgy and grungy feel to it. I paired the sweater with a pair of wool shorts, black boots, black tote, silver jewelry and some black cat eyed sunglasses. As said previously, if you live where the climate is colder don’t be afraid to pair with a pair of black opaque tights and a wool overcoat. I think the pieces I paired with the sweater completes the outfit by continuing the grungy and punk theme. Here’s where you can purchase these pieces:

  1. Moschino Cheap & Chic Stud Collar Cashmere Jumper from my-wardrobe.com
  2. Carven Boiled Wool Shorts from my-wardrobe.com
  3. Alexander Wang ‘Prisma’ Skeletal Lunch Bag from shopzoeonline.com
  4. KENZO Tiger Nappa Neutral Gray Lace-up Leather Boots from jades24.com
  5. Valentino Garavani Rockstud Sunglasses from lindelepalias.com

Best, Jair xx
