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.

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.

4 Jan

It seems like summer can’t come fast enough once the holiday hustle and bustle is over. Though we can’t guarantee warmer weather, we can help you escape the winter doldrums by showing you hot new sunnies from Kensie by Kenmark Group. Adding nine new styles to its current sunwear collection, Kensie has everything from flirty wayfarers to sleek aviators.

Paying homage to the modern, carefree girl, these new styles were designed with textures, patterns, luscious colors and magnificent shapes. Recognizing that girls are always changing their style (and mood), Kensie didn’t miss a beat and brought effortless variety to the collection.

Sneak a peek at one of our favorite styles—Funky Fresh. Taking the traditional wayfarer to the next level, these shades are two-toned with a spunky pattern on the brow bar making this one fierce frame.
