Our Favorite Frames for Fall

Some might argue that fall and winter end sunglasses season – but we beg to differ – and not just because we’re in sunny LA. The trick is to find sunglasses that won’t hinder your vision when it’s not that bright out (and make you look cool, of course). Ultimately, sunglasses are an accessory, and can help to complete the perfect look. And of course, we need to protect our eyes, even in the fall and winter! Which pair is your favorite?

Our friends over at HiStyley and Sainte-Marie Vintage have come together to create an amazing online pop-up shop with an incredible curated selection of vintage pieces. “Highlights from the collection include a Thierry Mugler prism jacket, Pierre Cardin lurex pullover, Lagerfeld-era Chloé blazer, and vintage pieces relevant to contemporary runway trends. Shipping is free on all domestic orders.” The shoot for this awesome collab features frames by The Guise Archives: the Marlo and the Stein.
