Embracing the charm of retro styles has become more than just a trend; it's a statement. And what better way to make a statement than by adding a touch of sparkle to your outfit? For those who swear by the timeless appeal of retro glasses, this is your guide to elevating your style game throughout the year. Let's explore creative ways to infuse a bit of glitz into your wardrobe, making every day a fashion celebration.
Frame the sparkle:
Retro glasses are already an iconic accessory, but think subtle rhinestones with metallic details that catch the light just right, like our classic Bettys, or super shiny crystals such as Marilyns. Both the Aurora and Gloria frames effortlessly transition from day to night, giving you a versatile accessory that adds a touch of glamour to any ensemble.
Mix and match eras:
Who says you have to stick to one retro era. Embrace the eclectic charm of mixing and matching styles from different decades. Pair your cat-eye frames with a '70s-inspired jumpsuit or rock some glittery aviators a '90s slip dress. By blending the best elements of various eras, you create a unique and eye-catching ensemble that reflects your individual style.
Accessorise with glam hats, scarfs and belts:
While your retro glasses steal the spotlight, don't forget to complement them with equally dazzling accessories. A vintage-inspired hat adorned with sequins, a silky scarf with metallic threads, or a classic brooch can add that extra touch of glamour to your overall look. The key is to strike the right balance between bold and understated, allowing each accessory to play a part in creating a cohesive, sparkling ensemble.
Play with colours:
Retro fashion is known for its vibrant colour palette, and adding sparkle to your outfit is the perfect excuse to embrace bold hues. Opt for frames in bright, standout colours like ruby red, emerald green or sapphire blue. These colours not only make a statement but also amplify the sparkle factor, ensuring you shine from head to toe.
Who says sparkle is reserved for the evening? Break the rules by seamlessly transitioning your glitter-infused style from day to night. Pair your retro glasses with a glittery daytime sweater or a sequined jacket for an evening out. This versatility ensures that your sparkling ensemble is never out of place, regardless of the time of day.
Adding sparkle to your outfit is not just reserved for the holiday season. With retro glasses as your signature accessory, you have the perfect canvas to express your style and infuse every day with a touch of glamour. Embrace the timeless allure of retro fashion, experiment with eclectic combinations, and let your outfit sparkle year-round. After all, when it comes to style, there's no such thing as too much glitter.
