Readers with Style: Get Inspired for Spring!

Around our office, reading glasses are more than just a necessity — they’re a style statement, too! Long gone are the days of wearing boring, basic readers, and here to stay are cute cat eyes, thick frames, and an assortment of reader embellishments. To help you make the most of your spring wardrobe, we’ve asked a few of our favorite female bloggers to style their favorite frames.

See how they dressed each pair to perfection, and be sure to grab a few of your own this season!

Patti of Not Dead Yet Style

We love Patti’s authentic, classic style with a touch of sass — think silk scarves, trendy prints, and fun jewelry. Patti chose to style The Nelson, a refreshing take on the everyday reader. We love how Patti kept her look modern, by pairing the glasses, a silk blouse, timeless blazer, and leather boots with a leopard print skirt. She added a personal touch with a rose pin that she made into a necklace. This is the perfect look for springtime work attire!

Crystal is a fan of vintage fashion, which is why she chose our quirky cat eye readers in aqua. We love how Crystal mixes modern and retro pieces for a look that’s uniquely her own! Here, she gave her readers a nautical update by pairing them with red loafers, tailored pants, a crisp button-down, blue cardigan, and red sailboat tie. The entire look definitely makes us want to spend a sunshine-filled day on the lake this spring!

Rebecca‘s style is effortless and fun, and we love her trendy accessories and jewelry; they’re perfect for perking up any desk attire! Rebecca styled our Heritage computer readers not one, but two lovely ways. In the first look, Rebecca chose contrasting black and white (a big Spring 2013 trend!), stripes, and polka dots to complement her readers, and in the second look, she added chic gold jewelry to a classic dark tee and cardigan.

We love any excuse to go bold, and Shelley has styled our round readers to bold, beautiful perfection. Shelley paired our smart-looking Elton readers and our oversized Architect readers with standout sweaters, rich hues, classic blacks, and dramatic hats for two eclectic-cool looks that’ll surely get you noticed this spring.
