Frame Friday: Summer Whites
Not so long ago, white outfits were restricted to the time between the Memorial and Labor Day holidays. Times have changed and the season for whites is not so rigid, but there is something about the hot days of summer that makes cool whites an appealing choice.
Here at Zenni, we offer a bunch of incredible white frames year ’round, but find that our top season for selling them is summer. Check out these lovely specimens and let us know what you think! Also, feel free to reference our latest infographics if you’re ever curious about finding out your frame size or measuring your PD.
This pair of full-rim glasses makes me think of Devo, even though they wore black-rimmed glasses. Maybe it’s the unisex, classic styling, but I suspect that it’s the metal hinges that reinforce the pomo look.
These beauties aren’t the least bit bit unisex: Every lady will feel absolutely gorgeous in these white and gold frames with a decidedly old-fashioned charm. Not only will this frame look great with a tan, the gold knotwork at the temples make these wonderful glasses to wear to formal events.
Another retro look that is positively sci-fi: You could definitely wear these to a con, while working in a lab, or even to the beach if you wanted to add an air of gravitas to your ocean-side frolicking. Seriously, though, this mix of white and silver isn’t to be trifled with.
On one hand, these are classic, full-frame wayfarers. On the other hand, the metalwork on the temples makes them stand out. Try them as sunglasses, if you wish, but they’d also look great as regular glasses and worn an aqua blue or coral pink sundress.
There is no need to make the touch choice between white frames and wood frames. This pair has wood grain temples that bring birch trees to mind. Try them with a plaid shirt and jeans or denim shorts for a cookout in the woods.
Ladies who are looking for a no-frills, yet feminine look should check out these oval frames. Pure white, with no embellishment, the gentle curves of these glasses are saved from looking masculine by their gentle curves.
If all-white isn’t your thing, check out these oval-shaped full-rim glasses. They’re trimmed in red, giving them a distinctly sporty look. Keep it casual and wear them to a softball game or a barbeque.
