Since getting glasses a few years ago I’ve stuck to a simple black frame, but there have been occasions where they just don’t work with my outfit as they’re a bit too heavy and contrasting. They’re very office chic but not so much summer soirée. I realised a lighter coloured pair could work better with the more neutral colour palette in my wardrobe, and wouldn’t contrast as much as the original black pair.
A brown tortoise shell in the classic Ray-Ban wayfarer shape seemed perfect. Similar in shape to my other pair as I know this shape works for my face, and with Ray-Ban the leaders in cult classics that stand the test of time, it felt right. Also, for the first time in Australian you can now buy the Ray-Ban logo prescription lenses, available exclusively through OPSM.
As soon as it warms up in Australia I’m instantly drawn to whites and neutrals, like this dress that I’m also mentally packing away for my honeymoon, so some lighter, neutral toned glasses are going to be nice option to have on hand to finish off my look.
