Round-framed glasses aren’t just for John Lennon and Harry Potter. This season’s hottest shades emanate the future while paying homage to the past. With unique specs from Ralph Lauren and Urban Outfitters, there are many ways to rock this trend and set you apart from the world of wayfarers.
This first look has been splashed across magazine ads nationwide. These Pink Python Sunglasses from Ralph Lauren are as classy as can be. Priced for about $250, this investment piece is a bit steep; but you can be guaranteed that their classic edge is timeless.
If you like the style of the Pink Python but don’t like the price, then Urban Outfitters offers a great alternative. The UO Spotlight Sunglasses in coral have the same chic-vintage feel but cost only $16. These sunglasses will successfully block the sun and also allow you to inconspicuously eye the cute boy across from you.
Perhaps you seek all things classic, and are not completely ready to give up the wayfarer style? Ray-Ban, the original wayfaring masters, created a look that combines the classic style with round, modern lenses. The Rounded Wayfarer retail costs about $135 and comes in a variety of colors.
Want to make a real statement? These handmade hexagon glasses from ASOS have a futuristic vibe. The cobalt-blue lenses pop in the sunlight but still provide necessary coverage. Created by Mauricio Stein, these glasses go for around $75.
