Dress with Style and Confidence for any Event with Kaki Read

Your glasses should be a reflection of you, and here at Warby Parker we love the idea of having glasses that you can tailor to your own personal lifestyle to fit the personality of any occasion.

Showing up in the right outfit can turn any event into a pleasant experience. Comfort counts, but knowing you look effortlessly put together will make an even bigger difference in how you feel. Others will pick up on the mood you create with an air of confidence and a fashionable combination of lines, textures and colors.
For instance, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to a garden wedding, you have the rare opportunity to create a vintage look that is both dazzling and elegant. You want to avoid competing with the bride or looking like one of the wedding party, but choosing an asymmetrical hemmed maxi dress in a gauzy, flowery print would be both appropriate and stylish. Ankle strapped pumps or dressy wedges would make it easy for you to glide among the other guests, and jewelry as well as sunglasses like a pair of blue marblewood Paley frames should allow you to sparkle quietly, but still make a statement. This is a case where a hat would indeed be your crowning glory, and choosing a floppy one with touches of color should complete the picture.

A less formal occasion such as a visit to museum or art gallery calls for a specific kind of planning. You can’t go wrong with one of the many designer shirt dresses that range from simple to safari. Adding textured leg wear and a metallic belt can better express your personality and keep the look from going too plain Jane. An understated pilot shoulder bag should suffice to tote your camera and phone along with tortoise readers such as the Ainsworth frames to inspect those difficult to see pieces. Since you will be on your feet most of the time, comfortable platform tee-straps with chunky heels or mixed media booties should keep the spring in your step and the “you” in your style.

Shopping should be a more laid back event, but informal can go beyond yoga sweats and sneakers. An all day trip to the mall is the perfect time to break out those daring skinny pants you’ve been itching to wear whether they are floral ankle jeans or brightly colored crops. Top these with a loose fitting, color coordinated tunic top or your favorite lacy cami and that classic blazer with a casual eternity scarf and a pair of Sims frames in burgundy fade. Shoes are key items here since you will be doing a fair amount of walking. Leopard ballerina flats or tooled leather loafers can be easily kicked off as you quickly shuffle in and out of fitting rooms.

After visiting Warby Parker and browsing their website, I am now a HUGE HUGE fan! 
They are also having a promo called "Buy A Pair, Give A Pair," where FOR EVERY PAIR PURCHASED, A PAIR IS DISTRIBUTED TO SOMEONE IN NEED.

So, if you are looking for a good quality pair of eye glasses, give Warby Parker a chance and help support an extremely great cause. :D
