It’s been more days than I can can count of rainy, grey days and I’m over it! Just when I feel like spring is right around the corner another cold snap slaps me back to the reality of winter on the west coast.
As winter wears on all of us, my complexion is as fair as it will ever be (translation: a nicer way to say pale), as summer sun kissed skin is only a distant memory. And even though spring feels a long way away; all the gloomy days seem to be subconsciously inspiring my wardrobe, as I find myself gravitating towards grey knits and cozy faux fur day after day.
Although darker colors and layers typically dominate a winter wardrobe, those same characteristics are not in the forecast for frame trends this season. Lighter, thinner, shiny metal frames are making a style resurgence. Not to be discounted as discreet, these frames are maintaining a strong style statement and presence with larger 1970’s inspired frame styles and bolder geometric shapes. When metal frames are designed in rose gold there is no better way to brighten up your fair winter complexion. Regardless of your skin tone, rose gold gives just the hint of warmth you need, to get you through the cold winter and will be the perfect spring eyecessory.
The “Brigitte” rose gold frame by Andy Wolf instantly caught my attention for it’s unique shape and delicate design details. The almost triangular frame shape, perfectly set architectural bridge and intricate embossed edge trim give plenty of style through subtle details and while still keeping them very lightweight, making them so comfortable to wear.
In my option Andy Wolf is the gold standard in uniquely designed, quality crafted independent eyewear. From design inception, often created over a meal by the founders Katharina, Andreas (Andy) and Wolfgang (Wolf) and sketched on a napkin, Andy Wolf is disrupting the status quo in the optical industry. Handmade in Austria, Andy Wolf features three collections with their own unique personalities, SOUL, LOVE and WHITE HEAT. Andy Wolf glasses and sunglasses can be spotted on trendsetters and celebrities around the globe.
A rose gold frame in a stylish, trendy design was typically a rare find. But since the Fall season, rose gold is making its mark in fashion eyewear. Designers such as Andy Wolf and Etnia Barcelona are taking minimal frame designs and making them showstoppers by finishing them in this feminine, complexion enhancing metal tone.
No matter if the winter weather has you feeling drab, a new pair of glasses can have you feeling fab! A pair of rose gold minimal, metal framed glasses can be just what you need to brighten your winter complexion and mood and are certainly a frame trend to watch and wear for spring 2018.
