Girls in Glasses
You’ve seen them. You know who they are. The Girls in Glasses. They traipse the halls as if it’s their own personal catwalk; their long legs swathed in black denim, their stunning tresses pulled into tight chignons. And perched upon their perky noses? Big, dark, round Chanel sunglasses. You can try to mimic their style. Perhaps befriend them in the Bendels dressing room. But you’ll never be one of them. You can, however, own them. In the form of illustrator Danny Roberts’ beyond irresistible Girls in Glasses tee. A charming collaboration between the artist and London ’s Borders & Frontiers based off of his Girls in Glasses Print (which I need hanging in my bedroom!).
Starring the stunning Sasha Pivovarova, the gorgeous Gemma Ward, and the breathtaking Jessica Stam, Roberts (known for his illustrations depicting various “IT” Style Bloggers) has truly outdone himself with this chic, yet truly affordable, creation. What do I plan on wearing it with? Hmm...let’s see:
♥For shopping Black opaque tights, a flouncy black mini, and leopard print ballerina flats.
♥For socializing Dark wash skinny jeans, sophisticated black pumps, and a cropped black blazer.
♥For relaxing Black skinny jeans, and black Converse.
A requirement for each look? A Giant Balenciaga City, and the one item that pulls it all together...Chanel sunglasses, of course. This tee is such a splendid way to add a little splash of pizzazz to otherwise understated ensembles.
Though let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I suppose that I should first obtain a tee of my own before planning the many ways I will wear it.
Thanks to Refinery 29 and Igor and Andre for the pictures.
