Back in April, I put the style spotlight on frames in rainy blue and aqua hues, drawing inspiration from the seasonal weather conditions—aka, April Showers. What do April Showers bring? Yes indeed, they bring May Flowers! While the pattern isn’t the most groundbreaking concept, it’s certainly rooting its fashionable flare on many of Pearle Vision’s frames this season. So we’ve come full circle from April to May, and once again, I’m letting my surroundings influence my spec style choices—and right now I’m putting the petal to the metal with flower print and blossom embellished frames.
These deep purple plastic frames by Rims have some light airbrushed petal designs at the temples and arms with small embellishments at the center. The subtle floral inclusions are good for those who prefer to refrain from bolder designs.
A studious tortoise frame in a pillow shape brings some glamour with gold rose appliqués at the temples in front, and at the sides. A rose by any other frame wouldn’t be as sweet.

High contrast black and white metal frames escape their plain-jane fate with the luxe addition of a studded single-stem blossom adorning the sides. They’re business casual from the front, but easily dolled up for trendier occasions.

A crystal-petal blossom embellishes the sides of these happy purple frames by Vogue Eyewear. The metal material tames the bold color—and with spring in full bloom, who can resist the poppy hue?
Vera Bradley Claire
A dual-pattern combo is refreshingly stylish and unexpected—especially with the surprisingly harmonious partnering of colorful floral patterned arms with tortoise rims of Vera Bradley’s Claire frames. Who knew tortoise and flower prints were made for each other?
Essential Eyewear EN8658
A raspberry pink metal frame handles the addition of flower features with balance: rather than a print or added color which might potentially overwhelm, Essential Eyewear’s EN8658 eyeglasses have small laser-cut-out blossoms lined along the arms.
Sunglasses take on a lose interpretation of the flower with a round blossom-like embellishment comprised of small round studs at the temples. They are blooming with style!
Vera Bradley Kate
Super bright floral print pops against a black background of the plastic Vera Bradley Kate glasses. They’re lined by a contrasting bold red translucent hue that make these frames a total garden party.
