Warby Parker: 2013 Winter Collection


IMG_3927

 

More than 38 million Americans wear glasses or have had corrective lenses prescribed to them (which accounts for hmm… 64% of the population, while 12% of the country wears contact lenses). And you should care because….??? Well, I’m glad you asked because the odds that you wear glasses or know of someone who does is highly likely- which means, this one’s for you (and the plot thickens).
For as long as I can remember, I was always that kid that told the optometrist that I could barely read the exam chart, (which to my credit was probably very true) so I was always able to score the coolest frames from the over-sized red Sally Jessy Raphael glasses to the more fashionably non-prescription flip-up Dwayne Wayne glasses.  So it’s no surprise that my love for glasses has grown fonder over the years into my adult hood (enter Warby Parker).
You may remember my Warby Parker review back in 2012 which I received great feedback from my readers! So naturally, the  ‘rustic meets modern’ 2013 Winter Collection prompted another review to pair your cold weather-hues with your favorite  winter past time activity. The collection features six new shapes in five colours, including two-tone acetates all for $95-including prescription lenses! Curiosity got the best of me, so I decided to partake in the ‘Home Try-On’ program for an up and close personal look of five of my favourite frames for the perfect fit (note: I only tried on five frames-two being very similar in shape in varying colours but the full collection can be seen here). I’m already feeling like a Warby Parker model…here goes!

Fab Five Frames!

Welty | Plum Marblewood

The curved brow line and slim acetate construction of Welty’s keyhole bridge frames gives a first-class combination even this casual winter puffy vest.

 Lyle | English Oak
 For a day and evening look, the English Oak is a classic round frame which creates a great contrast with your favorite winter turtleneck.

Available in two different colours, these assertive yet bold frames have a strikingly square shape with a sturdy bridge that is versatile enough to accentuate a low-key office look by day and a hipster look by night.

The epitome of classic, these 1940s-inspired keyhole frames feature slender temple arms, crafted from Japanese titanium for retro lovers looking for a good vintage piece to incorporate into their wardrobe.

Overall, my favourite feature of all the frames is that although Warby Parker offers frames for men and women, their frames are adaptable enough for either gender. Whether you’re looking for a gift for yourself, or for one that truly keeps on giving, consider purchasing a pair (or pairs!) from the Warby Parker Winter Collection.
