The name of the game is to be bold this season, from head to toe, and your eyeglasses should be no exception. Warby Parker’s new spring line is just that: bold and beautiful, boasting colorful hues and tortoise shell patterns. I walked around the corner to WP’s Shaw location in Washington, DC to check out some of their new line and immediately fell in love with the new frames. All of the frames are delicately placed on shelves in the bright corner store, neatly organized and just waiting for someone to lift them up and try them on for size. Chandni Sandhu, Store Leader, explained that the display is meant to resemble the inviting feel of library. You are supposed to pick up the frames and try them on as you would pick up a book and flip through the pages. The beautiful space, comfortable couches, and reading material all contribute to a pleasant experience while spending some time at the store.
I gravitated toward the straight brow line and blue fade of the Welty glasses, but I’m going to try some of the fun larger frames and tortoise patterns too when I choose 5 frames online! Our neighborhood is lucky to have a store, but in case you don’t have one nearby, the Home Try-On program is a great option to test out frames before making a larger commitment. I’m looking forward to getting mine in the mail, and to see what WP comes out with next! Sleek metal frames are next on their lineup, which are sure to stand out while complementing their blue and blush companions. Follow me on Instagram to see the frames I am trying, and which ones I pick! I’ll be back to the blog to share my experience with the Home Try-On program and how you can make an impact with your purchase.
