ST. LOUIS from Krewe
Committing to a frame can be difficult, especially for those looking for the middle ground between conservative and cutting edge. When a neutral frame is too quiet and a colorful frame is too overpowering, the solution is an obvious one: Combine them. Two-tone frames are the answer for all sorts of optical questions. Are these black frames too heavy? Fade the black to crystal for a lighter look. Are these tortoise frames too traditional? Blend with matte blue to create a unique combination. Are these chunky cream frames screaming too loudly? Bring tortoise in to calm things down. Some may accuse two-tone lovers of being indecisive, but here’s another question… why choose when you don’t have to
