In honor of NYFW, I’ve partnered up with Visionworks for my latest post. They sent me three fabulous frames to style (from Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, and BCBG), and I’ll be basing my looks off of their Spring/Summer runway shows! Now, why runway to reality? As much as I adore ensembles hot off the runway, I’m an everyday girl so it’s my goal to share what I think is cute AND wearable on a day to day basis.
Before I dive into my outfits, we’re gonna touch on eyewear trends. Spring/Summer 2017’s gonna be all about exotic glamour, tropical iridescents, and floral tones. You guys will see a ton of deep & rich tones that give a lush quality for early summer – teal, pomegranate and cobalt blue round out a wandering wardrobe, while silver metals are key in both men’s and women’s accessories. Saturated tones will mirror tropical destinations.
When planning for your summer getaway, consider slate, sand, amethyst and ceramic blues. Liquid-looking finishes and iridescent plastics are updated with pearly synthetics in pastels and shell tones to add a lustrous shimmer to plastic accessories. Last but not least, the classic petal print is modernized with shades of turquoise and pomegranate. Opaque colored acetate is used to confirm bold accessories, and sheen emphasis + layered acetate evoke a retro feel. Which trend are you guys feelin’ the most?
Look 1: DVF
I’ve always been a huge fan of DVF! Her Spring/Summer 2017 line was so on point. In fact, so much so that I had a rough time figuring out which looks to share, but I settled on the ones above. As you can see, she’s all about fabulous prints! Here’s my take on her flowy, goddess-like garb.
I centered my look around a comfortable but stylish printed mini-dress and paired it with an oversized cardigan to cover my shoulders – hey, it’s hot, but AC can be brutal indoors. I carried my new Madewell tote – it’s seriously big enough to carry my life – and threw on snakeskin sandals to add personality! To finish off my look, I wore fabulous DVF frames to match.
Next up, BCBG…
I pretty much love everything they design, and by “pretty much love,” I mean, “shamelessly obsess over,” ha. For this look, I went with the color scheme pictured on the top right. To me, a BCBG girl is effortlessly fashionable so I decided to style a casual but comfortable look with trendy touches. I started with my favorite faux-leather skirt and paired it with a cool cutout knit. I accessorized with a BAMF statement necklace and incorporated a pop of color with my pomegranate frames.
My third and final look: CK all the way, baby!
Calvin Klein’s Spring/Summer 2017 line oozes sophistication and polish! Therefore, I styled a classic menswear-inspired look for y’all. I started with a simple ruffled tank and paired it with high-waisted pants. I threw on a pinstripe vest and carried an animal print tote to elevate my look, and to finish things off, I accessorized with CK frames.
Alright guys, that’s a wrap! Which look did you like the best? Oh, and which glasses were your faves? I love them all, but I think I’m leaning towards the CK frames. Anywho, If you’re looking for new glasses, head on over to Visionworks STAT. Their products are super accessible – you can purchase ’em online, pick them up in person or select delivery to any destination nationwide. There are 2k+ frames available online so I can pretty much guarantee you’ll find a design you love.
