Specs and Sunnies to be Thankful For: Eyewear for Every Thanksgiving Get-Together

Thursday marks the beginning of the holiday season for many, and whether you’re spending the day one-on-one with a loved one, in a full house of family, or trying out a “Friendsgiving,” you’re gonna want to look your best. As always, we’re here to help! Finding the perfect frames to pair with your Turkey Day garb – whether you’re going comfy or chic – can be a challenge, but we’ve gathered a few options that will surely guide you over the river and through the woods to the perfect outfit for your occasion. Take a look at some of our go-to casual and dressy outfits (complete with festive eyewear) below. Dinner is served!

Guys’ Casual – Comfort is key, especially with all the turkey and mashed potatoes you’ll be eating! Opt for relaxed dark wash jeans and a loose-fitting, long-sleeved tee for a cool vibe. Add a pair of Shaquille O’Neal specs for that quintessential pop of autumnal orange. Comfy shoes and a warm jacket will set you up perfectly for a little pre-dinner touch-football. Don’t forget to pop on a pair of Islander Eyes classic aviator shades to shield your eyes from the sun so you can score the winning touchdown.

Gals’ Casual – Nothing says “comfy fall outfit” like a plaid wrap to snuggle up in on a crisp day. Pair it with a dark teal pair of sunnies from Swarvoski for just a hint of sparkle, and cute camel booties for the ultimate laidback-chic look. Medium wash jeans, plus a classic black satchel are simple yet stylish additions. When you head inside to chow down, pull out a pair of essential round specs with a keyhole bridge from Peepers by PeeperSpecs to really pull the outfit together.

Guys’ Dressy – A more formal occasion calls for a smart ensemble. Start off with a simple pair of gray slacks and snazzy oxfords. Add in a blue plaid collared shirt and sleek Calvin Klein Platinum sunnies for a little pizazz. A masculine gold watch is the perfect addition to keep an eye on the time so you don’t overcook the bird! Finally, finish off the look with iconic square glasses from TOMS Eyewear in a bright tortoise print for an unexpected twist on a model frame.

Gals’ Dressy – Festive garb in sassy metallics is perfect for this time of year! Pair a pleated silver skirt with a rich fuchsia sweater, which highlights a pair of two-toned pink specs from Geneviève Boutique. Black strappy velvet heels beg to be the center of attention, but that spot has already been spoken for by modified cat-eye sunnies from Cazal in luxurious black and gold. Lastly, a statement bejeweled necklace adds an extra special touch of glam.
