Boys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses

With a burgeoning collection of obnoxious sunglasses and fake specs between us, we were thrilled to receive an email from Kaki Read, a fashion coordinator at Warby Parker, suggesting that we collaborate on a post together. Disproving the old adage, “boys don’t make passes in girls that wear glasses”, Warby Parker vintage inspired frames are super stylish. What’s more they even give you a warm glow inside, as for every pair of glasses sold, another pair is distributed to someone in need – helping the less fortunate has never been so appealing. Below, Kaki shares her tips with us on how to look stylish at work and during the weekend. Based on her tips, we have compiled some ensembles and paired them with our favourite Warby Parker frames.
"When going on a day trip, looking the part of a tourist is half the fun. This doesn't mean that one should dress in a souvenir t-shirt and cargo shorts, like so many unfashionable tourists do [Circle of trust confessional; we are actually really rather partial to a souvenir t-shirt! - RF]. Dressing up a bit to celebrate a day free from work and life's other obligations sets the tone for the adventure. If the weather is warm, a high-low dress is a great look for a giving off an air of being on vacation, albeit a short one. High-low dresses are short in front and taper down to longer lengths in back. Many are made out of flowing fabrics like chiffon, which cause their hemlines to flare out whenever their wearers walk more than a few steps, creating a glamorous effect. This glamour can be increased by also wearing over-sized sunglasses. Sunglasses by Warby Parker add retro allure to the contemporary style of a high-low dress and a pair of wedge or high-heeled sandals can complete this ensemble.”

The Jasper Violet Magnolia Sunglasses are particularly lovely!
“Dressing stylishly for work requires careful consideration. You have to find a careful balance between sharp style and modest maturity if you want to inject some edge into your office wardrobe without losing the respect of your peers. An easy way to overcome this obstacle is to embrace androgyny. A crisp, fitted blouse makes a great impression, especially when worn with tailored slacks…A short blazer is an edgier alternative to a sweater vest, especially when wearing eyeglasses like Warby Parker's frames.”
