There’s no denying glasses are a unique accessory that’s always front and centre. Literally, if you wear glasses, it’s likely they’re on your face during all waking hours.
All the more reason to find a pair of frames that suit your face, feel good to wear for long stretches of time, and, all around, elevate your look — even if that look is 8 am class in your sweats.
Hailing all the way from Australia’s Bondi Beach, Bailey Nelson is on the pulse of what’s trendy and affordable, without compromising on quality. Frankly, we can’t envision a better way to use up those health benefits than on chic back-to-school eyewear.
If you’re a student or an educator, you might not be aware that you actually have extended benefits through your institution — which means you can look good without paying a fortune. You can also use the discount code BACKTOSCHOOL online to get your paws on a pair of frames and lenses from $100 until September 30.
Here’s a look at some of our favourite styles for the 2020 back-to-school season.
On top of having a cool Aussie name, these round lenses are a Bailey Nelson staple. The keyhole bridges, bold accents, and wider fit are all part of its signature hallmarks.
A perfect blend of classic shape and modern design, the Bronte’s dual acetate upper frame with metal fitting and bridge have a seriously retro vibe. This style is also available in crystal, black, camel, and cherry blossom colours.
If you’re looking to achieve that stylish, slightly oversized look that’s so hot right now, we’ve got you covered. Wells’ sculpted corners and keyhole bridge also give the frame a playful and witty flair.
This style is the apex of comfort meets functionality, and it makes a statement without being too bold. You’ll find these frames in peony, galaxy, and mahogany colour schemes.
This style of frame is making a comeback after being worn by the likes of John Lennon in the 70s. With these frames, you’ll have your pick of gold, rose gold, and bronze. Wider fits are also available to suit larger faces.
A classic set of frames is all about bold, clean lines. This style is a gentle nod to the resurging fashion of mid-century menswear.
Palmer’s versatile look will take you from office to beach without seeming out of place. The frame’s relaxed lines and rounded angles were designed to convey an air of friendliness and openness. Not a bad way to make new friends, if you ask us.
These oversized frames will help you achieve a dainty look due to the big, bold cat eye lenses. It’s a nostalgic design that’s reminiscent of the 50s, but with a modern twist thanks to the translucent acetates.
The Frank serves up a simple and refined aesthetic that turns heads. This elegant style is unisex and available in green camo, cumin, and mahogany.
If you’re a student, teacher, or faculty member, forget spending your hard-earned money on glasses and use your school’s optical health benefits instead.
You’re also eligible for frames and lenses from $100 until September 30 by using the discount code BACKTOSCHOOL while shopping online.
