Fifteen Pairs of New and Stylish Spectacles


There are two types of people in this world: those of us who rely on our contacts to make it from the bedroom to the kitchen without smashing our faces into the wall, and those blessed with perfect sight — or surgery that provides it. The two tribes used to be divided like a modern-day Montagues versus Capulets, but thanks to a resurgence in the popularity of “vanity frames” (we’re squinting at you, Jenna Lyons), both houses have come together in union. Anyone can wear glasses now! With or without a prescription! And no one will judge you, because glasses make everyone look just a little bit more intelligent. Channel Johnny Depp in a pair of Super’s Panama frames, or get Anne Hathaway’s bespectacled red-carpet moment in tartan Warby Parker. Stars, they’re just like us: blind, or possibly not blind. Just people in search of a yet another accessory.
