I like to think of Fall as the “Grown Up” Season, at least when it comes to fashion. The bright colorful summer accessories and clothing are slowly being put away until next year, and the darker colors, layers, jeans, and boots are making their way back into the wardrobe rotation. While many of us start thinking about the warmer clothes as we hit the stores for some back to school shopping and see the racks lined with pants, long sleeve tee’s and blouses, sweaters, and cardigans, we often completely forget about the accessories. I like to put away my playful summery bags for more sophisticated styles, as well as of course retire the flip flops, wedges, and espadrilles in favor of wedge boots, platforms, sneakers, shiny neutral flats, and gorgeous black heels. I also trade in some necklaces in favor of a light airy scarf.
The one thing I haven’t put much thought into in the past? My sunnies! Sunglasses should no doubt be worn year round, even in the winter, to help protect eyes and ward off those wrinkles so don’t go tossing your summer sunnies into the back of the closet just yet! However, an update on the sunnies might be a great way to usher in the cooler weather.
If you want your warm cozy, often times – more neutral fall wardrobe to be cohesive with your fall accessories, now is a great time to look for a more sophisticated, yet simple, polished frame. I like to put the mirrored frames, and big oversized sunglasses away for the time being, and go with a more relaxed, classic style for Fall.
For my more classic Fall look here, I paired a chic super soft black and white off-the-shoulder striped long sleeve top with some of my favorite pair of light washed skinny jeans, added some 6-inch platform boots and some trendy round dark lens Woodies Sunglasses.
All Woodies sunnies are polarized and made of real lightweight wood so they are super comfortable to wear all day long! Each frame comes with a hard case, soft case, and cleaning cloth too, so you’re glasses stay safe when you’re out enjoying fall activities, and you can easily keep them clean while on the go too! Oh, and in case you’re worried about those poor trees when you buy these real wood sunglasses, Woodies plants 3 trees for every pair of sunglasses sold!
I love these glasses in particular because they easily carry me from summer to fall, thanks to it’s classic (and currently on-trend round frame) and its cool wood arms (made of real lightweight zebra wood) – which totally says summer, but still keeps my look fall-ready too, thanks to the black trim top of the lenses, and pretty gold frame detail found along the bottom of the lenses.
Wayfarers and Aviators are also some other great styles for Fall. Just be sure to keep the lenses and frames classic metallic and/or dark, such as black or dark brown. You want to save your bright blue mirrored and rose pink lenses for Summer! [Read more…]
