We’re excited about the new gorgeous, mesmerizing shades by Warby Parker in Grapefruit soda and Amaretto. Cooler than the coolest thing ever on this planet, Tilley, a classic cat-eye frame, is designed for drinking cocktails by the pool or stealing hearts when you are just out and about.
A lesson from history
Cat-eyes are one of the most popular frames in the history of sunglasses (and even eyeglasses). With their roots dating back to the early 50s, these glasses were originally created to be worn only with optical lenses. Things changed when Audrey Hepburn kicked off the trend (revolution if you may), for these feline eyed sunglasses in the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffanys.
Prior to the iconic movie, winged glasses were worn by Hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor (a rich legacy, if you ask us).
Unlike the original cat-eye glasses of the 50s and 60s, which were exaggerated in shape, the modern versions have larger, rounder lenses and gentle winged out frames. However, when it comes to Tilley by Warby Parker, expect their creative twists to classic styles (which we have now fallen in love with!).
Feline eye fashion
These works of art are your purrfect solution to go from ‘meh!’ to ‘oh wow!’ in a fraction of a second. Get ready to turn heads and bask in the attention drawn by these slightly oversized frames and feel like a star. Designed for breakfasts at fancy places, shopping trips, poolside lazing and everything in between, Tilley is sure to make you feel like a celebrity!
Presenting the iconic cat-eye frames in two playful and creative variations –
- Amaretto with Classic Grey Lenses
An impressive and attractive silhouette, this version of Tilley is for days when you want to make a statement about your extraordinary yet classy fashion sense and personality.
- Grapefruit Soda with Amber Gradient Lenses
A translucent frame so delicate (only in terms of looks though!), artistic and lively, be prepared to receive plenty of compliments!
It’s time to be mysterious like a movie star (or hide that hangover *wink*) in the coolest way possible! Arm yourself with an impactful style weapon to make you picture-perfect in an instant!
A frame for thought
Whether you are into retro fashion or you just want to have a unique style statement, the Tilley sunglasses work like a charm- protecting your peepers from the sun.
These vintage-style beauties are designed in-house by Warby Parker and crafted from custom cellulose acetate which is sourced from a family-run Italian factory. The temples are joined by Akulon-coated screws for durability. What does that mean for you? A flawless pair of glasses which is sturdy, flexible and lightweight! This makes Warby Parker Tilley your ideal partner-in-crime when you feel like recreating the magic of the 50s.
When it comes to lenses, these sunnies offer 100% UV protection and are resilient to scratches and flaking off. You also get the option of selecting from prescription and non-prescription lenses. Prescription lenses are made from polarized polycarbonate, making them impact-resistant. Non-prescription lenses are made with CR-39 for maximum clarity and color. The lenses are also available in limited edition flash reflective coating! So, what are you waiting for?
A shape for every shape
These adorable cat-eye sunspecs are an absolute must-have to go bold and classy this season. But then, how do you pick the perfect pair? The Tilley sunglasses look good on bottom heavy face shapes such as triangular, round and square (though anyone can rock the cat-eye look, trust us!) as they balance out the features. These timeless creations can add a touch of vintage glam to your wardrobe.
We know that a perfect pair can flatter and highlight your facial features. Wondering whether the fit of Tilley will fit your face? Let’s help you out. This Warby Parker piece of art comes in a wide sized frame. The measurements are printed on the inside of the temple arm and follow the format of 52mm (lens width) – 19mm (bridge width) – 145mm (temple arm length).
Still don’t feel confident about wearing these trendy shades? It’s time to pick out your absolute favorites and try them on from the comfort of your home (with a little help from your girl gang!). To make it easier, you get the option of picking out 5 frames for home try-ons! Isn’t that exciting? Make sure that you (or your gang), don’t fall in love with all those beauties. Breaking up with them is hard *sigh* (we say this from our experience).
A pricey affair? Not really!
We have good news for you! You can still manage to look like a trend-setting celebrity without having to empty your life savings! Starting at just $95, you get a 30-day ‘no-questions-asked’ return policy on these gorgeous shades! You also get a one-year no-scratch guarantee on the lenses. Talk about being economical, yet stylish!
