THREE TRENDS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RIGHT NOW

Q) WHAT SUNGLASS TRENDS ARE BIG FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2014? 


MIRRORED LENSES What better way to do a mirrored lens than in an Oliver Peoples classic frame like "Benedict"? You are capturing the trend, but in a classic/timeless shape.


TONAL FRAMES AND LENSES I love our collaboration with Isabel Marant ("Daria") because it’s glamorous and sporty. It’s really like a piece of jewelry with the beautiful rosegold frame gold plus pink lenses (and check out the temple detail!). This gives a very ’60s-to-’70s boho vibe. I instantly think "American Hustle".  


TEXTURE OR PATTERN This is a new color of ours called "faded" sea. You can really see the texture of the greys and blues in the acetate of this frame. This color adds dimension, which is flattering against any skin color. 

IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY JUST ONE FRAME

WHERE TO BUY

ISABEL MARANT PAR OLIVER PEOPLES Matt aviator metal sunglasses, saksfifthavenue.com 

 

Q) IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY ONE PAIR OF FRAMES THIS SUMMER, WHICH PAIR WOULD YOU GET AND WHY?


The Isabel Marant par Oliver Peoples "Matt" aviator. It is a perfect aviator shape and size. I love to wear aviators during the summer; the comfortable nose pads lift the frame off your face for comfort and fit, and the metal is so lightweight. I also love that subtle peach mirror as the lens color. 

HEAD TO TOE DAY-NIGHT

Q) HOW WOULD YOU STYLE THE AFOREMENTIONED PAIR FOR MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND?

 

I am totally into the whole white-on-white trend. It’s so crisp and clean looking and has a 'dressy' element that suits most casual situations. Plus, white is the perfect color during warmer temps. This dress could be worn for so many different occasions, you could dress it up or down, plus, it's in a classic white. These [rings] layer perfectly with jewelry you already own. A classic sneaker with a beachy twist is both comfortable and cute. Or you could try a sandal. This Givenchy is my absolute favorite city bag. You can wear it multiple ways, it’s super lightweight, and the leather is as soft as butter! I love it in the deep blue, because it’s a neutral color without doing black. If it's hot, I love sporting a messy braid or top knot using one of these cute hair ties. They won't damage your hair and they are tie-dyed. I always recommend Nars lip pencils. You could wear a nude color for day and then switch up to an orangey-red for evening. These pencils are great because they don't dry out your lips and the color is long lasting. Plus, they don't take up much room in your cosmetic bag or purse.
