Sunglasses That I Think Should Be On Your Radar

Some of our favorite celebrity icons are remembered very well for a particular pair of shades that they constantly rocked (think Kurt Kobain in his 90's shades that are coming back in style). But if you're still looking for that pair of "it" sunglasses for your face, I've found a website, Warby Parker, that has a couple of cool frames to check out.

I have a heart shaped face and tend to focus on shades that compliment that, so Warby Parker's sunglasses have a couple that work for me.

Tilley Sunglasses
These "Tilley" Sunglasses stood out to me immediately upon scrolling through the website because of the fact they are colorless. I have a lot of shades of different colors, but will usually invest in neutral hues to make sure I can wear them with any outfit. This clear pair was cool to me because they will pair well with anything I wear but they also will stand out compared to a regular shade of black. The frame seems vintage-y, but I can rock it with a modern all-black outfit and still make a statement.

Clementine Sunglasses
Speaking of making a statement, another pair I enjoyed looking at was this pair of "Clementine" Sunglasses. If you need a pair of bright colored sunglasses to match with your bathing suit this summer, I feel like these Coral ones will probably go with any pattern. Most of my bikinis inevitably end up having pinks and blues in them, and I would love grabbing this pair of shades before I headed out the door to the pool with some friends.

Sheridan Sunglasses
Finally I thought I would mention a pair of glasses that I could see myself wearing throughout the year, the "Sheridan" Sunglasses. If you read any of my CollegeFashionista articles, you'd know that I predicted oval sunglasses would be the go-to this season. This pair is pretty sleek and professional, taking you from looking like a student to a sophisticated working girl. Since I just graduated college, I'm looking to invest in pieces that will help me look like I have my "ish" together, and this pair of shades along with a fresh leather bag and blazer will make me look more mature. Because let's face it, people are always mistaking me for a high schooler.

Warby Parker doesn't only sell shades for Women, they cover so many Men's styles too. I'll be recommending them to my little brother who just pledged a fraternity this spring and will need appropriate eye-wear for any tailgating or weekends out on the boat with friends.

This company also has Men's and Women's eyeglasses too, so if your need for amazing frames goes beyond protection from the sun, you can check those out too.

Spring Is Here!

Spring Is Here

Mary Katrantzou striped tank top, $340 / MSGM mini skirt / Topshop red tight / Black ankle boots / Gucci handbag purse / Flower hair accessory, $4.94 / Shinola Soft Linen Journal / Palomino Blackwing Pencil 602 Pack of 12

Previously, I've been known to be a minimalist when it comes to dressing up. Last year I studied in Florence, Italy and learned a lot about making the most out of a small, capsule wardrobe. Learning this was extremely influential to my outlook on fashion because it taught me that combining clothes and layering is everything.
My outlook in Spring 2017 is completely different. This spring is all about breaking out of minimalism and finding the colors and prints that match what your mood is. I was feeling pretty inspired after checking out some of Bonobo's newest collections, including their Men's Collection. Every day is a new day to pick the clothes that express who you are.
Some trends that I have incorporated in this post include:
1. Ruffles- Recently I've seen many fashion shows including the inclusion of ruffles. The best way to flaunt this look is to work it into a style that may have already included this before, like a skirt.
2. Florals- While florals in the spring aren't exactly "groundbreaking," this is the perfect time to wear florals of any color depending on the day during the unpredictable spring weather.
3. Fishnet Tights- I've included the fishnet tights that have become increasingly popular this season, but picked out red ones that are colorful and will stand out more on the streets.
4. Statement earrings- Earrings can really make or break an outfit. I've seen the most amazing outfits be ruined with the choice of an earring that doesn't compliment the look. A quality pair of earrings is something that I would splurge on because you can wear them with so many outfits.
5. Bold Stripes- The purse and the top were only picked to be a part of this outfit because of the stripes. Even though they don't match perfectly, they coordinate and would be spotted by any street-style photographer.
This look is perfect for the streets of New York, the city that I hope to live in one day. When I think of spring, I think about new beginnings and getting ready for the summer, so I'm happy to make a post about an outfit I'd like to wear this spring.
