GIRLS WITH GLASSES

I haven’t been shopping for clothes in a long while (frugality and pregnancy combine to create the perfect anti-retail storm) but was inspired to do a little virtual wardrobe scouting when Warby Parker reached out to me about their beautiful new Fall collection.

In case you don’t know about Warby Parker, their ethos is great – for every pair of glasses purchased they distribute a pair to someone in need.  Through their partnership with VisionSpring they have, to date, distributed over 500,000 pairs around the world.

I don’t actually need glasses, but you have to admit that the right pair can be a pretty chic building block to base an outfit off of…  Here are three Autumn outfit interpretations for girls with glasses (guaranteed to get you passes, natch).

(above) GIRL ONE: quirky + chic

1.  Nash glasses in crystal by Warby Parker (I especially love these frames!).

2.  Dotted fox print dress by Tsumori Chisato, via La Garconne.

3.  Ovid faux fur vest by Sunday Best, via Aritzia.

4.  Slate blue oxfords by MM6 by Maison Martin Margiela, via La Garconne.
