Eyewear Color Play
Written by Sami, Managing Optician
Strikingly different looks–all done simply with color. Unlike clothing, shoes, or accessories–frames are not often chosen to pair with your wardrobe — but rather to wear day in and day out. It can be tough to get creative with the pair you wear on the daily! We are challenging you to change your perspective on your everyday pair and to start seeing in color.
AMPLIFY YOUR FRAMES
Frame: Moline in Rosewood
If your frames are of the darker variety and you are in the mood to make your frames pop, wear lighter hues from head to toe. Cream, white, caramel and beige color families all work with our Rosewood frame color. The striations contain dark brown, cream, caramel and hints of orange which provide you with a great palate. I’d suggest throwing on a cream top with a pair of light wash jeans and a beige mule for a more casual look — you’ll be good to go!
Frame: Mia in Teak
To make your frames effortlessly chic, try a column of darker (lighter if your frames are light or translucent) to create a solid color block. Your frames will blend more with your entire ensemble yet, create a powerful look. Teak has similar color components to our Rosewood color-way without as much orange — more caramel tones. To play up the caramel, I’d suggest a brown suede dress similar to the one seen in the image above or a brown silk top with brown wide leg pants and open-toe block heels.

There are many opinions on mixing and matching metals, for me, I prefer to match. Match the metal rivet detail on the frames to your jewelry/watch, handbag or shoe grommet. It can be difficult to find the exact match, but do the best you can to stay within each color family — the closer the better! These details are small, but the subtleties are what make a good outfit, great.
