PUTTIN’ ON THE GLITZ

’Tis the season, and women’s specs are right on trend, with a heaping dose of layered-on sparkle and glitzy details.

Embedded glitter and crystals amp up the glam factor of both optical and sunwear styles. Tech-infused spectacles, like suspended lenses in oversized, geometric sunwear, are show-stoppers. And, special accents like laser cuts and mixed-material treatments lend a future-forward element of enticement.
