“Frame Friday” Roundup: The First Week of Spring

  • BY Dave Schreiner

Welcome to actual Spring. If the first day of the season left you struggling through more snow and cold weather than the April flowers we’re all dreaming up, a splashy, colorful pair of new glasses might be the right thing to celebrate the Vernal Equinox in your life. Warm colors – whites, reds, oranges, and yellows – infused into full rims in colorful patterns liven up the face and ensure that you don’t leave the house in the same dark winter garb that you’ve been dragging around all year.

And if you live in one of those blessed parts of the country that is already warm, you’re probably looking for new ways to make your outfit pop with seasonal style and energy. Interesting frames that literally sparkle are a perfect fit. You get the best of both worlds, because when they match your clothes, people will be subtly impressed that you look so put-together, and when they don’t match, nobody will notice. They’ll be too busy commenting on your fun eye wear.

Some people continue to insist that their glasses are exclusively functional. As long as they work and don’t get in the way or distract, these people are happy. Well, these frames certainly don’t fit that definition. They are colorful, they embrace retro designs and modern aesthetic sensibility, and they are meant to be enjoyed. You might even find a shape that compliments those beautiful peepers in a new way. There’s nothing better for a boost of confidence.

So perhaps it’s time for you to embrace a hipper image of yourself and get with the Spring stylings with a reliable, attractive pair of color, full-rim framed glasses. Go ahead and try one. Whether you’re battling through end-of-March showers or reveling in another sunny day, it will be fun. I promise.
