As a kid, I always looked forward to the fresh slate ushered in by a new school year. Amidst the excitement of newly sharpened pencils, unopened packages of supplies and a few key wardrobe additions, like many kids I took my seat on the first day of class looking at the blackboard genuinely eager to learn and ready to make straight A’s. That confidence that so many kids exude at the start of the school year is undoubtedly a result of preparation, the promise of a new beginning, and my favorite element naturally—style. Feeling great about how you look as a kid is a big factor in self-esteem (especially fragile in adolescence), and for glasses wearers, owning a fantastic and fashionable pair of quality frames gives kids one less thing to worry about, and one more thing to feel good about. Seeing clearly and doing so with style will absolutely contribute to your child performing at their best.
Consider today’s post your seat in Back To School Eyewear Style 101. Take notes as you will, and read along dutifully as savings opportunities are bound to spring up like a pop quiz. Lesson One, the trend-right look of the moment is a movement I’m titling:
Le Geek, C’est Chic!
One look that is all the rage for every age this fall is the geek chic frame. Looking scholarly has become the new standard for cool, with sleek black and/or tortoise frames being the staple necessity. Your kids will look stylish and studious when they go back to school in our current Spec-Of-The Month: Converse Jump black frames! With a sturdy rectangle shape and fun, subtle turquoise accent color, your kid will surely give these specs (and you) an A+ in the classroom of cool.
Smart style translates to adults in statement thick black frames. Try the bold rectangular DD1168 style from D&G. If the black is bordering on being too bold for your personal taste, try them in classic brown tortoise. (Tip: Use Pearle Vision’s Try-On-Tool to test how they’ll look on you!)
Now pay attention class: you can send your kid back to school in style and SAVE! Receive free kid lenses with the purchase of youth frames from now thru October 2, 2011. AND take advantage of the Share The Pairs event, also ending October 2: buy a complete pair of eyeglasses and get a second pair free! That means you can get your kids set for class in a pair of new glasses and then indulge in a pair for yourself for free. Your kids will look totally smart—and you will feel incredibly clever.
