When it comes to summer, one accessory we all should have at all times are trusty sunglasses. So look to Warby Parker for their latest collection, which is both super trendy & super protective. What’s also great about the brand’s sunglasses is that they have a special “Buy a pair, give a pair” initiative, meaning for every pair of sunglasses sold, a pair of optical glasses will be distributed to someone in need, working alongside VisionSpring. With their wayfarer styles, this SS14 Collection is full of beautifully trendy designs for both men and women. The brand is also loved by supermodel & Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss, who collaborated with them to create a unique and charitable collection in aid of Edible Schoolyard NYC. So which sunnies do I recommend to you? And how would I style these beauties? Well read on for all the Killer Fashion details, and the low-down on the exclusive Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker collection.
These sunglasses are perfect for everyday wear as you can pick the subtle grey & dark brown version or the all-brown version. Pair with your favourite jeans, a chic t-shirt and comfortable flats for the ultimate laid-back look. Available in Sea Smoke Tortoise or Striped Sassafras, at €70/$95 or €111/$150 for Prescription Glasses.
These chic glasses are a nod to the vintage era with their rounded curves and wood-like frames. Polarized lenses in either blue or green, they’re great for the beach with a summer dress and sandals. Available in English Oak or Whiskey Tortoise, at €70/$95 or €111/$150 for Prescription Glasses.

Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker
As mentioned above, this Karlie Kloss X Warby Parker collection is exclusive and unique as Warby Parker donate to an organization that’s close to Karlie. All sunglasses are €107/$145 each and also feature ultra-strong yet lightweight Japanese titanium frames.
Just like Karlie, the three new sunglasses are graceful, polished, and full of personality. We worked hand-inhand to impart her genuine warmth and go-get-‘em energy to a trio of distinctly feminine classics: Julia, Marple, and Clara. They’re versatile and insanely flattering. Edible Schoolyard NYC works with low-income New York City public schools to build kitchens and gardens where they teach students to develop lifelong healthy habits. The donation will benefit two community farm stands in Brooklyn and East Harlem, where kids learn about food preparation in their own neighbourhoods. And as always, for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
“Collaborating with Warby Parker on this capsule collection was an amazing experience. I’ve always admired their commitment to social enterprise and am so excited that our partnership is supporting Edible Schoolyard NYC’s inspiring work.” – Karlie Kloss
