Alright so maybe you don’t want to look like a Rapper, but maybe you have wanted to look like a Surfer, a cast member from Jersey Shore, or a night club DJ. There are thousands of styles of frames on the market right now. A certain style of frame paired with the perfect outfit and you’ll have no trouble duplicating any of those styles. Let’s break it down a little bit and find the perfect shape frame to create the appearance you desire for the day.

Do you want to look like a Naturalist or Tree Hugger perhaps? I’ve got two really cool brands for you: Wood U? and Earth Wood. For those of you that follow our blog Larum recently talked about the Earth Wood brand so I’m sure you already know all the beautiful details, if not go back and read it! Both of these environment friendly brands use real wood to make their frames. You can get them with lots of different lens colors and wood shades. Any of these frames paired with a fitted white tee shirt, some worn out Levi’s, Chuck Taylors and a pony tail would be a complete Tree Hugger look. Check …

When heated, it becomes a reddish brown and is called burnt sienna. It takes its name from the city-state of Siena, Italy. It was one of the first pigments to be used by humans and is found in many cave paintings. Now that’s cool! Second, I immediately noticed the trademark silver arrow often referred to as the “Supreme Arrow”. The gracefulness of the iconic and glamorous brand of Persol. Therefore I knew it combined the highest quality materials and …
