Getting to Know Hue

30 Mar

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:

Take a Tint
Lenses in blue and green pack a punch while amber and rosy tints add femininity.
