The Easiest Way To Add Color To Your Winter Looks Is Through Your Eyewear

In partnership with Pair Eyewear.

I don’t know about you, but when the temps start to dip, and the sun starts setting at 4:30 PM (which should be illegal) it gets harder and harder for me to get out of bed in the morning. It’s cozy! It’s warm!! And once I’m up, it means I need to think about wtf I’m wearing that day — an impossible task that I can’t be expected to complete when there is frost on the ground. 

On mornings like this, I tend to gravitate towards basic looks that I can dress up with some funky accessories. They’re formulaic enough that I don’t have to think too much in order to put them together, but the colorful accessories give me a serotonin boost I need more than my morning coffee. 

The easiest way for me to add a little oomph is with fun, funky eyewear — and that’s where Pair Eyewear comes in. They pair classic shapes with creative colors and patterns to create truly one-of-a-kind glasses that are so much fun to mix and match. With their huge line of colorful toppers, you can customize your base glasses to match your favorite look, giving you endless ways to change up your style.  And from now through December 3, you can save 20% on your Pair Eyewear order with code Holiday20. That way, you can stock up on oodles of designs without spending a fortune. 

Need some inspo? Scroll on for the colorful looks I’d wear with my new Pair Eyewear.

Winter Blues (No, Not THAT Kind)

I consider blue a neutral, tbh, which makes The Reese glasses in blue tortoise a top contender for your daily glasses. I’d pair them with the outfit I throw on when I want to *feel* like I’m in pajamas, but want to look a little more polished. That means a cropped sweater, oversized jeans, and a silk scarf that I can wear around my neck or in my hair (depending on whether it’s been washed). Want a little more pop? Say hello to The Iridescent topper.

A Neutral Twist

Don’t discount your browns once Thanksgiving is over. I love pairing different tones of the shade together for a look that’s warm without being too stuffy. (Bonus: All of the shades in this outfit pick up the browns in The Ella eyeglasses in tortoise.) And for a true vintage throwback, grab The Mahogany Woodgrain topper. 

See Clearly

In the pre-holiday crush, I’m guessing you’re running a ton of errands while also trying to juggle plans with your friends. An easy, yet impactful, outfit like this one is comfortable but also super sleek. (I love that black floral bag!!) Some clear eyeglasses, like The Kirby in crystal clear, give you a fun, modern pop. And for more of a statement, The Chrome Stars topper is a winner.

Pretty In Pink

The easiest way to incorporate a bright pair of glasses, like The Soto in pink clear? Keep the bones of your outfit neutral and incorporate some fun accessories in a similar tone. It gives a flirty little twist without being too over-the-top. But if you’re looking for a little more pop, try The Masquerade topper for a funky twist.
