Color can be intimidating— trendy colors can get tiresome, punchy colors can feel overwhelming—but resigning oneself to a wardrobe of neutrals isn’t the answer. Color comes in many forms, especially with eyewear. Vivid frames are always an option, but softer hues like dusty pink are just as unique, yet not overpowering. Bright details provide a pop of color against deep shades like black, and tinted lenses keep classic styles from being too predictable. Options abound for even the most color shy.
