Retro Summer Daze

Vintage-inspired fashion is all the rage this season, so it’s no wonder the eyewear realm is following suit by unveiling specs ‘n’ sunnies reminiscent of yesteryear! When it comes to frames, old-school silhouettes and traditional hues are revisited, but with summery modern twists. Adding a touch of retro flair to your wardrobe has never been easier with glasses and shades, not to mention accessories and garb, that’ll totally transport you back to the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Take a looksie at the pieces we’re currently coveting below.

For guys, teardrop aviators from Kingsley Rowe and geek chic rounds from MILK Eyewear take center stage. With quintessential keyhole bridges and brightened tortoise patterns at the forefront, these frames pay homage to celebrated classics of the past. A dapper woven fedora, a funky tropical print top and a leather analog watch with an antique face are wardrobe must-haves for gents who dig vintage style. A spritz of original musk cologne will put the finishing touch on any dude’s retro ensemble.

For gals, chunky geometric glasses from Leon Max and hippy-esque, metallic gold round sunglasses from Chloé epitomize the “old is new” sentiment. To boot, a high-waisted, black-and-white striped skirt, cutesy ankle-strap pumps and a thick headband flaunting a Hawaiian-like pattern are definite essentials for any woman this summer. And of course, nothing screams feminine retro beauty like bright red lipstick!
