We’ve had a good thing going with Wayfarer-style sunglasses for years now. The thick frames have been our go-tos for protecting our gaze from the sun even at the most formal of occasions. But today marks the day that we officially break up with our ultra hip eyewear. It’s true! There’s a new summer sunnies romance on the horizon — designed by supermodel Karlie Kloss for Warby Parker — and they’re gonna make you want to ditch your Ray Bans, too.
The exclusive three-frame collection brought to you by the Victoria Secret Angel + Taylor Swift bestie is as flattering and versatile as your ‘Bans, just way chicer. Made of lightweight Japanese titanium, the ready-for-summer line refreshes signature styles like aviators and cat eye glasses with ultra thin metal frames and upswept wiring details.
If the subtle detailing isn’t enough to win you over, then the ombre lenses in luxe copper, indigo and forest green will for sure. Each style is oversized to perfection, making the retro-inspired specs breezy enough to wear to patio brunches + beach-bound escapes and sleek enough to accessorize the rest of your warm weather wedding outfits.
Don’t feel too bad about your Wayfarers’ summer FOMO, though. Like always, eyewear do-gooders WP will donate a pair of frames for every one sold. For this special collaboration, they are also donating proceeds from Karlie’s creations to Edible Schoolyard NYC, an organization that provides urban gardening and cooking classes to students in low-income schools. Pick up your own pair for $145, or $195 with prescription.
