So with Coachella coming to an end late April, it signals the beginning of other music festivals happening around the world. Although Coachella might be one of the most well-known in North America with celebrity-driven fashion and lineup, Vancouver is a great place to be if you are a lover and a fan of music festivals. To get you ready for all the sun-splashed fun (1) and wanderlusts moments, Clearly created the Derek Cardigan x We Are Handsome collection, an exclusive collaboration between the eyewear giant and swimwear and gym brand to help you see clearer while staying chic during this festival season.
Excited to partner up with Clearly again, this time I got a pair of frames from their Derek Cardigan brand which is a more sophisticated and laid-back line. Perfectly paired with the bold and custom styles of We Are Handsome, a swimwear and lifestyle company beloved by celebrities and influencers alike – I chose this geometric pair adorned with holographic tortoise details to fully embody a festival feel. With a strong retro flavour, this narrow browline frame is great for flattering a wider jaw and angular features and really gives you the illusion of thick full brows. Not only flattering, this exclusive pair is lightweight and easy to wear and oh so stylish with a touch of subtle gold metal. Like all their eyewear, these frames come in a hard leather case along with a custom DCxWAH pouch inspired by the theme of Palm Springs. If you are having trouble finding a great fit for you, Clearly has a great tool called MyFit, which narrows down frames that best fit you based on measurements from an existing pair of eyeglasses. It is an easy tool that will help you find your perfect frame quickly and effortlessly.
To style these fun retro frames, I was inspired by the classy manner of the tortoise shell and went with a more traditional approach to the festival look. No festival outfit is complete without a chic fedora hat, fun fringe details and fresh floral patterns, so I included all three into this Coachella-inspired outfit. Whatever you decide to wear, whether more elegant and pared-down or wild and expressive, the most important thing to remember is to be comfortable in your own skin. So this festival season make sure you have a good survival kit, comfortable boots, a great attitude and a fashionable pair glasses to help you see your favourite band closer and better.
Thanks for reading and enjoy festival season!
