LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Rose-Colored Glasses

I am a college graduate. I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut and I could not be prouder or more honored to be a husky. I have grown with my fellow huskies for the past four years, some of my best and most cherished friends. I can't begin to tell you all how much I'm going to miss this place, and before my mascara starts running and the shoulder of this borrowed crewneck sweatshirt starts to moisten, I will end the nostalgia here.

I was scrolling through my pictures last week when creating a presentation for campus club Sneak Technique, and I noticed that I have never photographed a four-eyed Fashionisto. Considering glasses are no longer known for being nerdy and embarrassing, it is quite the shock that I don't have a pair staring at me through a post. Places like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 are selling glasses for people who don't need them to see and strictly want to look the part of a nerd. Who would have thought it would be an “it” thing to not have good eye sight? Not “eye,” my friend.

I spotted this Fashionisto and had to stop him. He was dressed well with a deep cobalt blue button-up, navy undershirt, khakis and brown dress shoes. It was nice to see a button-up more relaxed with an unbuttoned top button and rolled-up sleeves. 

Scanning over his glasses, I was happy to see their shape and style. The sleek black wayfarer style gives this pair of glasses a Mad Men appeal, something a lot of people are trying to incorporate into their wardrobe, including myself. Fashion right now is all about the little details, whether it's two buttons instead of one or elbow pads. The two tiny raised silver studs bring just enough to these glasses to make them interesting and aesthetically pleasing to look at. Regardless if this Fashionisto is sporting real or fake glasses, you can't tell and he is certainly making a statement. 

Hint: Add a classic color or style to the frame like these tortoise readers from Urban Outfitters.
