Just because the seasons are changing doesn’t mean we lose our fashionable styles. We’re constantly looking for a great deal, me as a mom of soon to be four kids, and Blythe, as a copywriter who’s constantly on the computer. Well, Readers and Sunglasses Warehouse has you more than covered! They have a ton of different styles, colors, shapes, and lens power to fit every need. From funky to fun, and lens type to tint, both sites help you find your perfect pair at a great deal.
I was given the opportunity to try three different pairs of sunglasses and Blythe was given the chance to try four different pairs of glasses. We both can’t wait to share them with you!
First two pairs: The Joel & The Pike Place Computer Reader
The Joel is ideal for anyone who likes a very simple, semi-rimless frame. They have a very sporty look, though on me the kind of look like I’m trying out my best Sarah Palin. I do like their lightweight feel and the textured grips around the ears, which help to keep them from slipping.
I chose The Pike Place Computer Readers to help reduce eye stress from my computer. I’m either on my computer, phone or tablet all day long so sometimes my eyes feel strained. The Pike Place was designed with an amber anti-glare coating to help block blue light and tone down the computer screen. While I like the look of these reading glasses, especially in the tortoise, the glasses gave me a headache every time I tried to wear them.
Both of these frames are stylish and would work perfectly for a day at the office:
Bottoms: Dark jeans or leggings
Tops: Long sleeve tee with a bell sleeve, or a long, casual sweater or sweatshirt.
Shoes: Boots, flats or a simple sneaker.
Second two pairs: The Blanche & Brookside
The Blanche is my absolute favorite pair of the four I tried. If I have to admit to finally needing reading glasses, I want them to be fun and funky. I love the retro style of the two-toned patterned, square frames. The green and purple really pop against my skin tone and hair. I also think the square frames are super flattering on my face.
Coming in at a close second, are the Brookside frames in blue, and not just because blue is my favorite color. Again, I really like the square frames. I think this style is the most flattering on my face. Because of its classic style, the Brookside works well for both men and women. The lightweight frames are very comfy so again, I don’t feel so bad about needing a little extra help seeing the small print. Although they are a narrow frame, I do think these are the most versatile of the readers I choose because of their style and color choice.
Both of these frames are funky, yet wearable. They would work well for casual days or fun nights out:
Bottoms: Your favorite jeans, pants or LBD
Tops: Sequined or bling top or a fitted sweater or flyaway cardigan
Shoes: Booties, heels, or flats
First Pair: Arcadia Matte Tortoise
The Arcadia Matte Tortoise are by far my favorite pair that I received. I love the color and how they go with everything, from just a basic look to dressing it up. The lenses are polarized and have 99% UVA/UVB sun protection. I prefer the rectangle look versus your new “bubbly” look of most sunglasses that you find out there today.
These you can dress up or down really easy, how to pair them:
Pants: Dark jeans or slacks
Shirts: You could go for casual with a nice tee or spice it up with a fun and dressy blouse. Throw on a long sweater or cardigan to give it that extra flare. I think warm colors would go best with the brown in the sunglasses.
Shoes: From Boots to flats, these sunglasses could complete any outfit.
Second Pair: Copa with Gray Tortoise
The Copa are so fun, they remind me of something coming straight out of the 60’s! These have a unique metal brow bar across the top. These funky frames can spice up any outfit.
How to pair them:
Pants: I think khakis or olives would look great maybe in a carpi pants.
Shirt: Choose a solid tee or long sleeve in a nature-based color, and throw on a jean jacket to finish your look.
Shoes: Flats or a basic sneaker like chucks or converse.
I think the more simple the better for this pair of sunglasses since they have a variety of colors in them.
Third Pair: Morant Gray Lens with Silver Frames
The Morant are great for guys or gals, and let you look extra sharp. They also give you that crisp look you get from wearing mirrored lenses. I find the Morant Grey Lens perfect for any look, especially since they come in many different lenses and frame colors.
How to pair them:
Pants: Dark or light wash jeans or any black pants would go great too.
Shirt: For this, almost anything would work, you can pull off any color or style shirt with these glasses. I even think a dress would look great with these.
Shoes: Flats or heels.
You can even throw on a beanie to finish off your look!
As you can see, we are loving all our new glasses. Their affordability makes it easy to constantly change up our looks for every occasion, mood, or season.
