Things are looking warm and bright for 2011. From uplifting honeysuckle to the cool hues of blue, eyewear styles are rich in color this season – even the lenses.

When it comes to eyewear this spring, color is showing face in a big way. From colored lenses to sultry specs, eyewear is definitely a statement piece that will add an instant wow factor to your wardrobe.

Here’s a look at some of the hottest hues in lenses and frames for the coming season:

The highly anticipated 53rd Annual Grammy Awards will kick off this Sunday night in honor of the music industry’s best. We know that the presenters, performers, nominees and attendees are frantic getting primped and prepped for the big night, but at least they can rest assured knowing they’ll be showered with luxurious goodie bags that will include some seriously stylin’ eyewear.

As you may have guessed, no celebrity gala is complete without a signature gift bag. Guests, including the likes of Lea Michelle, Leann Rimes, Faith Hill, Kristin Chenoweth and Seal, will be delighted with the BCBGMAXAZRIA Silk sunnies by ClearVision Optical tucked in their tote.

Color Me Pretty in BCBGMAXAZRIA Specs

28 Jan

Feel like you’re always wearing black during the winter? Whether it is reflecting your mood or hiding a few pounds left over from the holidays, it does seem to be the signature color during the colder months.

Don’t get us wrong, black is fabulous, but it always looks best with a pop of color. Consider swooping up a pair of BCBG MAXAZRIA specs by ClearVision Optical to punch up your black ensemble. Each new style is bold, avant-garde and available in hot spring colors.

Artsy ladies might want to try the Adalina frame with its soft cat-eye shape and open pierced temples. We love the vibrant teal color, but Adalina is also available in black and brown.

For a stylish, but more subdued look try Belinda, a metal, semi-rimless butterfly frame with bi-laminate temples donning the BCBG logo. This luscious plum tone and colorful temples are fun and feminine. It is also available in black and brown.

Vintage vixens can revel in this vivacious acetate Catarina cat-eye. Featured in a ravishing red, Catarina is also available in softer colors like olive and tortoise.

Sheer Elegance in New Ellen Tracy Specs

Calling all you spexy ladies out there! ClearVision Optical has added four new tantalizing optical frames to the Ellen Tracy collection that we know you won’t be able to resist. These new additions are fitting for any occasion – a day at the office, an interview, happy hour or special event—so you might not want to settle for just one. Find out more about these specs and how they’ll recharge your look below:

The luscious cranberry Bali frame is a soft cat-eye with subtle inlaid copper wire detailing that is sure to glam up your everyday garb. If you’re not into the bold color, try tortoise or black instead—it’ll still have the same great effect.

Don’t be fooled by the simple frame front of these semi-rimless Barcelona specs. One peek at the temples featuring an intricate python foil print and you’ll want these frames in all three colors – aubergine, black and brown.

For a more modest look, try Gistel, a milled flat alloy frame in brown, crimson or eggplant. The rhinestone accent on the temples will give the sparkle you need to get through any day.

Feminine yet edgy, the Positano metal stainless steel cat-eye will certainly draw attention. The temples are accentuated with micro chain pattern cut outs and a glossy finish, contrasting nicely with the demure matte frame front. These indulgent specs are available in eggplant, brown and wine.

Eyewear at Fashion’s Night Out

16 Sep

Fashion’s Night Out, the brainchild of Anna Wintour, was created to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping. On September 10, New York City and twelve other cities around the world, designers, celebrities, models, and fashion editors staged exciting, one-of-a-kind events in stores open after-hours to the public.

Eyewear, being the hot accessory that it is, made an appearance too…below check out how two brands celebrated FNO.

William Rast

Justin Timberlake used to be known solely for being a popstar sensation, but now is just as well known for being a fashion icon. Being that fashion is his passion, Timberlake and his childhood best friend, Trace Ayala, teamed together to create the William Rast label (which will soon launch its eyewear collection).

To kickoff FNO, there were two William Rast events hosted in L.A. During both events, models paraded around wearing the new F/W 2010 collection along with the limited edition eyewear designed specifically for FNO. These aviators go great with the line’s rocker chic look and add an element of glamour to even the most casual outfit.

BCBGMAXAZRIA

BCBGMAXAZRIA and ClearVision Optical joined forces to battle breast cancer during Fashion’s Night Out at national BCBG retail locations. The scene, filled to the brim with fashionistas and shopaholics, was hustling and bustling as customers sipped champagne and mingled with celebs while they perused the store and checked out the BCBG Dream frame displays.

The BCBG Dream frame is a stunning, limited edition pair of sunglasses that raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We can’t think of anything better than fabulous sunnies for a fabulous cause!
