It’s one of my favorite times of the year again! And no, I’m not talking about fall. I’m talking about New York Fashion Week, where all of my most-adored designer brands will be showing off their latest and greatest collections for the Spring ’15 season!
You know who’s also showing off a new collection? Everyone’s go-to glasses brand, Warby Parker, who debuted its Fall 2014 collection just this morning. Featuring nine new shapes in a number of different shades—including Crystal (for a more modern look), Striped Pacific (for a rich, sophisticated effect) and Petal Tortoise (for a soft, earthy feel)—the collection has a lot to offer in terms of great style.
Available online and in Warby Parker stores and showrooms, you can pick up pieces from the new collection today (and starting from just $95!).
To celebrate the new collection, the folks at Warby Parker asked me to pick out a few of my favorite shapes and shades. And because no glasses can be chosen without an outfit in mind, I thought it would be fun to design a lineup of fall outfits around each pair. Take a look at my picks:
What to wear with the Chandler Ti in Newsprint Grey:
I love the thought of rich hues like navy and deep charcoal grey for fall, especially when they’re paired in a casual-cool look that can go from a Saturday of shopping to a lazy Sunday brunch. Throw on a layered sweater with a pair of rugged-chic distressed denim, and dress it up with a statement bootie, crystal-drenched necklace and metallic clutch for a look you’ll never tire of all season long.
What to wear with the Coley in Crystal:
Practically made for the office, this black, white and gold color combo would look gorgeous when paired with the mod Crystal glasses. Add a ribbed sweater to a pair of tailored-but-loose trousers, then complete the look with luxe booties, a statement neckline, a simple shoulder bag and another touch of lucite for a modern look that will never get old.
What to wear with the Greenleaf in Woodgrain Tortoise:
For those fall weekends when comfort is key (but you don’t want to look lazy), throw on a printed dress and accessorize with heels, sweaters, bags and jewelry in earthy tones of tan, brown and burgundy (which couldn’t match the Woodgrain Tortoise shade any better!).
What to wear with the Durand in Whiskey Tortoise:
There’s something about tortoiseshell that feels so classically luxe to me, so naturally I would want to wear it with a look that reads feminine and polished. And what better way to achieve that than with a ladylike skirt, gilded accessories, leopard-print pumps and a swipe of deep red lipgloss?
