1960 Jantzen Ad

National Jewelry Day is March 13 and lets celebrate by wearing iconic eyewear with earring temples. Eyewear is fun. Costume jewelry is fun.  Why not bridge the gap between the two and create double the fun! The concept of earring temples is not all that new; case in point: this 1960s advertisement for Jantzen eyewear. This vintage sunglass collection demonstrates a colorfully fun way to wear charms dangling on the temples of your sunnies.

Everything is coming up roses with these superbly retro oversized round lens! The light brown ombre hue of the lenses is not just a quintessential 1960s eyewear trend throwback, is a very nice compliment to the cranberry colored frames.  Of course the piece de resistance is the substantial circle tags creating the leading edge earring temple look.

Designer Jeremy Scott always has a way of bringing playfulness to his high end designs.  We can’t help but be nostalgic for the candy apple red heart shaped frames paired with the dangling heart earring temples in this 2012 design.

Cat got your tongue? That’s a shame because there is so much to say about these Cat Lenses (not to be confused with “cat eye frames” by “I Still Love You NYC”.  These 2013 sunglasses are a statement maker at a forward facing glance, but the unexpected large ornaments dangling behind the ears might just steal the show.  The mixed mediums of dark gray lenses, gold chain ear arms with the pewter pentagon flower leave these sunglasses for only the most fearless fashionista to employ!
