30s Style Glasses

It was the era of the Great Depression, but despite people making do and mending, there were a wide range of glasses available. Metal, gold and round shell frames were popular but so were rimless, Prince-nez and even the monocle, rocked by the androgynous German actresses Eva Eras. Hair was usually short and set, brushed out to give a wavy effect, then clipped at the ears. Make up was more subtle than the 40s Hollywood glamour era to come, with thinner brows and no eyeliner cat eye wings. To get the look, pair a bright round pair of sunglasses with a sailor suit or some beach pyjamas for that Riviera style.
