Turning your back on color to embrace a neutral palette doesn’t mean you have to turn your back on style. Or fun, for that matter. Neutral colors—for Street Seen, that means white, crystal, gray, black and brown—offer more variety than you may think and have serious style staying power. Stepping away from bright hues brings the focus to shape and structure, with the bonus that these frames will complement anything you pair them with. Find the perfect face-flattering style, and you’ll stay neutral in any eyewear debate.
