PRETTY, IN SYNC.

Women’s eyewear is utterly alluring this season, with classic inspirations that are amped up with a purely unexpected edge. Think cat-eyes crafted in mesh-patterned acetate, butterfly shapes gone wild, animal prints galore, glitter-encrusted optical styles, and enough color to please any palette. The choices are bold and abundant—and, today, it’s a woman’s prerogative.
