How to style sunglasses for summer (feat. new styles from Warby Parker)

Originally published on Haley Marie Blog in August 2018, this post represented a collaboration between Haley Fritz and nationally recognized eyewear brand Warby Parker.

Hello, beautiful! Haley Marie Blog is proud to present this amazing collab with Warby Parker, the stylish prescription frames company that's perfect for glasses-wearing gals. I am excited to help WP announce its latest collection for Summer 2018 with this blog post featuring the brand's newest styles of sunnies.

Sunglasses are one of those functional items that every girl needs for summer - ya know, so you can shield your eyes from those harmful UV rays - but they present a plethora of problems for the average consumer. Me personally, I have trouble finding frames that fit my petite bod (#ShortGirlProblems).

However, the biggest problem I find when shopping for sunglasses is finding a pair that stands out from the basic black. That's a problem that WP's new line happily fixes! Their sunglasses are as unique as you are as an individual, so you'll never have to blend into a boring sea of shades ever again. Plus, their styles are all available with prescription lenses, so you don't have to do the awkward layering thing in 2k18...if you wear glasses, you know what I'm talking about.

Check out my top four picks from WP's line below and how I style these unique shades for summer! And, as always, be sure to share this post on social media - and tag @haleymarieblog and @warbyparker - if you love what you see :)

Peplum x Classic Frames

As much as I rambled on about my hatred for basic black, I've got to admit that classic frames still have a special place in my heart. WP's newest black frames, however, are anything but boring! They come with a cute red, white and blue stripe detail that's perfect for soaking up those USA rays all summer long. 

Thanks to that classic color scheme, I paired these frames with a peplum tee from Tommy Hilfiger - because what better way to wear red, white and blue than the king of RWB himself? The peplum on this top is perfect for adding curves to petite frames, and masquerading any muffin top you might be concerned about.

Um, vintage T-Swizzle anybody? But seriously: these millennial pink cat-eye frames are the perfect throwback to a bygone era. They're perfect for adding the allure of a horizontal line to oblong faces. Coupled with their totally-kawaii take on tortoiseshell, you'll feel like the belle of the beach in these shades all summer long. 

As for this swimsuit, you have retrowear company ModCloth to thank for its adorable butterfly print and flattering figure. With its high-waisted bottoms and supportive top, this outfit is perfect for beach bumming it at any size.

Pulitzer Prints x Lenses a la Jackie O 

You might recognize the silhouette of these latest frames from our late First Lady Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy - aka the beloved fashion saint Jackie O. These frames from WP are perfect for balancing and slimming round faces, without overwhelming petite gals. Pair them with a shift dress from our lady Lilly Pulitzer and you'll have an outfit that Jackie O herself would approve of.

This shift dress will outfit you in a classic silhouette that couldn't go better with these vintage 1950s glamour shades. And better yet: this LP print is limited edition, from the designer's collab with Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle brand Goop. Pretty pinks plus lacy pom-pom trims? Gwyn, can I just say...I hope you're here to stay.

All jokes aside, let's stick with our theme and return to our vintage look of the day, aka a Sandra Dee-inspired ensemble featuring WP's cherry bomb frames. This shape is perfect for slim faces and adds the perfect pop of color to an all-black uniform. If you're a gal like me who struggles to incorporate color into your closet, you might consider opting for a pair of punchy frames like these! 

As for those infamous leather pants, you can feel good about this pair from Free People - because they're completely vegan. That's right, no animals were harmed in the making of this style! So, feel free to enjoy your Broadway moment guilt-free. After all...you deserve it!
