It’s a little bit retro. It’s a little bit nerdy.
A consistently re-emerging mainstay of eyewear,
the preppy style (some call it a P-3) is right on target. And it’s better than ever. Colors are of the
moment—tortoise, crystal, skin tones.
Shapes are quietly streamlined.
But it’s undeniably the preppy shape.
