Summer Looks That Pair With The LA Collection

summer looks

Channel the ultimate Cali-cool look this summer with styles from Zenni Optical’s LA collection. Inspired by the city’s eclectic clash of glam and grit, these frames have unique silhouettes and artistic details to put the finishing touch on any summer look. With everything from throwback browlines to zany pop color frames, you’re bound to find the perfect pair (or pairs!), no matter what style you’re going for. Not sure how to work these into your ensemble? We turned to some Instagram fashionistas to get a few inspiring summer looks that we think pair perfectly with our latest collection.

Black sundress with boho headband and bag

This look comes from Bohemianbythebay. Just throw on a breezy black sundress and some eclectic accessories for the perfect complement to our Venice glasses, one of our boldest cat-eye frames. Go for a colorful bohemian headband and fringed bag to turn heads in these dramatic glasses. Make the look your own with your favorite color scheme – the Venice frame comes in soft brown for a more neutral look, matte denim blue for a laid-back cool, and a translucent glossy yellow for a sunny finish – the choice is yours! Throw in some metallic bangles to finish off your look with a little extra shimmer.summer-looks-sunglasses

Playful Printed Sundress with Neutral Accents

Play up the drama of our retro, quirky Melrose frames with this adorable summer look. These frames are full of personality, so why not have an outfit to match? Build your look around a flouncy patterned sundress – like Rdulay’s adorable watermelon dress! The bright pops of pink on navy are perfectly suited for these two-tone cat-eye sunglasses. With an outfit like this, you’ll definitely turn heads. To tie it all together, mix in some beauty neutrals like a straw bag and camel-toned leather wedges for a look that’s one-of-a-kind and ready for any occasion.summer-glasses-style

Crop top and cut-offs


Here’s another one from Bohemianbythebay. For the ultimate summer casual outfit, you can’t go wrong with classic distressed cutoffs and a crop top with a wide-brim hat. With a worn-in feel and breezy finish, this is the perfect California-girl look – especially when you rock it with some beach-ready espadrilles. Want to show off a little more skin? Choose a crop top with an off-the-shoulder neckline for a look that’s totally on trend for this summer. And for an outfit this iconic, our Sunset aviators couldn’t be a better match. Rock these angular aviators with your ensemble for an effortlessly cool look that’s perfect for a day at the beach, lunch with friends, or even a night out if you throw on some chunky heels. summer-aviator-sunglasses

Floral button-up and slacks


Our wire-framed Sepulveda eyeglasses are a match made in heaven for tropical florals and bright colors. These minimal, round frames add a subtle retro edge to any outfit. Pair these vintage-inspired metal frames with a bold, botanical-print button up and crisp petal pink (or any coordinating color) khakis for an outfit that easily works for a late brunch or evening cocktails. Dress it up with white patent leather shoes for an eye-catching finishing detail. This look from Blueperk is a new take on old classics and definitely makes a statement.round-sunglasses-for-summer

Floral tank and white skirt


Our dramatic cat-eye Venice sunglasses call for an outfit just as vibrant. Show off your tan with a bright white skirt and colorful floral tank for a look that’s fresh and bright. No matter which color Venice frames you want to rock (blue, yellow, or matte brown), a bold pattern and white accent make the perfect complement. To get the look from Fashionlingual, try a white slim-fitting or pencil skirt that hits above the knee and pair it with any darker-colored floral print top that fits close to the skin. And don’t forget a colorful clutch to tie it all together!beach-glasses

Daisy Sundress


Aviators are iconic for a reason: they’re an ultra-flattering, always-cool finishing touch on any ensemble. Our Ventura frames maintain the classic aviator silhouette and have the added striking detail of a colorful mirror lens. With this classic masculine frame there’s no better contrast than a flirty floral sundress. We love the textured fabric incorporated into this look from Letswearblack and the chunky white heels – perfect for a lunch date or early cocktails. Don’t have something floral and textured? We suggest to either go for a white-forward floral print or a white eyelet dress for a similar airy, fresh look.aviators-for-summer
