Everyone has a personalized version of the go-to “Oops, I hit snooze too many times” outfit. Mine happens to be more of a uniform, because despite the fact that I work in the fashion industry, my overall vibe is based on effortlessness minimalist style. I generally embrace a minimalist wardrobe, often wearing some version of jeans and a simple shirt, then accessorizing accordingly.
For those of us who adhere to the minimalist wardrobe philosophy, shoes serve to easily set the tone of an outfit, thus are an essential part of the equation. However, I would argue that there is another remarkable yet criminally underrepresented accessory that possesses similar superpowers when going minimalist. Many of us wear them, but we don’t all take full advantage of the opportunity. I’m talking about eyeglasses, folks. Spectacles. Fashion eyewear. Lenses that help you see clearly. You know, to read, or drive, or decide whether to swipe left or right. Eyeglass frames are an absolutely untapped goldmine of accessorizing potential.

When wearing my beloved Stella McCartney flares and a cropped white tee, I can transform from farmers market to date night by merely swapping my Birkenstocks for some groovy platforms. So why not embrace the chance to put on cat-eye designer eyeglasses and bring some extra seventies flare (pun intended) to your high-rise bellbottoms and crop top? To add a geometrical pair of eyeglass frames to a bodycon dress for a bit of modern edge? To don a streamlined, ovoid style of fashion eyewear with some Levi’s 501s to completely dominate the über trendy nineties vibe?
