White glasses could give you the fresh face you’re looking for!
As new season updates are more desirable than ever (after months of lockdown dressing) striking out with a fresh image is on many people’s minds. Among the colour directions on course to make a mark for summer 21, a predilection for black and white (or a crisp clean white with nuanced tones of the season) appears to offer a fine and elegant solution for fashion and frames – a statement of simplicity, with a nod to Chanel and the runways of the 90s.

The US family-owned label Erker’s has just announced some of their fresh looks for the season. One of the favourites we identified is model Maplewood, a classic American-style half-rim shape, with contemporary ‘angular’ top rim. The stainless steel base with pristine white upper rim offers a chic interpretation of the monochrome palette. www.erkers.com
From the free-spirited French Woow Eyewear line, where colour is always fun and fascinating, the model Brightside1 is part of new releases designed to refresh and energise. The tri-colour variation featuring white on the upper rim and salmon pink on the lower section, combined with a gold metal bridge offers a mood of playfulness and intrigue, with which to take on the new world.

STYLING ADVICE – a note on wearing white on the face: white glasses suit many complexions and we advise to try both all-white and white with metal or other colours to see how the mix effects the look. All-white glasses – just like sunglasses – can look really stunning on many skin tones and particularly olive and black tones. For paler complexions, you can also try off-white – cream, blush and ivory tones are slightly warmer and easier to wear as are the transparent crystal tones which are elegant and timeless. The black and white combo is also one to try if you want a statement look that is very much on-trend in fashion, and if you are coordinating your look with a monochrome outfit, head to toe.
