If you’ve got it, haunt it! Halloween is just around the corner & we see no better reason to rock a pair of your favourite frames. Make a spooky spectacle of yourself with the help of a few easy-to-pull together costume ideas that incorporate a fun pair of eyewear.
Rectangular shapes complete the look for plenty of our favourite modern characters & vintage inspired costumes. Think Clark Kent (aka: Superman), funky Austin Powers, intelligent and hilarious Leonard, Bernadette or Amy from the ‘The Big Bang Theory’, stubborn yet kind Carl Fredrickson of Disney’s ‘UP’, Velma of ‘Scooby Doo’, or Jim Cutler and Roger Sterling of the smash TV drama ‘Mad Men’.
A flirty Cat Eye is a staple for any 1950’s or 60’s era costume, and found on many television and movie stars of the time. Pair your frames with a little black dress, sparkly tiara and a high bun for the classic Audrey Hepburn – ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ look, or rock a poodle skirt and side pony for a perfectly feminine throwback!
Round shapes were a very influential look in the 1920’s, and again in the 1960’s and 70’s – they’re also an identifying feature of some our most beloved characters, surely recognizable to party-goers at your upcoming Halloween party! Own a red and white stripped sweater and tuque? Ta-da, you’re ‘Where’s Waldo’ ready! Looking for a more glamorous costume? Pair a sparkly dress, round frames and dazzling jewelry for a seductive ‘Great Gatsby’-esque costume. Don’t forget, gentlemen – round frames were also a staple during the decadent 1920’s era for the men too. Pair a vintage suit, dapper hat with round frames – and you’re Leonardo Dicaprio ‘Gatsby’ ready!
Retro perfection – you can’t go wrong with aviators at anytime of year, and especially at Halloween! Our picks for Halloween costumes made complete with a great pair of aviators include Maverick of ‘Top Gun’ (ladies, don’t be afraid to rock the pilot look!), Walter White of ‘Breaking Bad’, or Irving, Richie & Sydney of ‘American Hustle’.
With so many icons we know and love who rock some pretty awesome frames – the possibilities for a talk of the party costume are endless! Pair a floral dress and fun accessories with your boldest frame, and rock the look of eccentric Penelope Garcia of ‘Criminal Minds’. Pair a black turtle neck and black pants with a classic black or wire frame – to emulate the timeless Andy Warhol.
Do you have a perfect frame-worthy costume in mind this Halloween? Be sure to share with us on our Facebook page, we’d love to hear your awesome ideas (and pictures if you are rocking a pair of our one of a kind frames!).
Wishing you a spook-tacularly fun and safe Halloween!
