Frame Friday and Cyber Monday Favorites

Don’t get so distracted as you comb through this weekend’s deals that you forget about yourself! Below are three of our top selling frames, which are all curiously classic in design. (Each of these can be ordered with standard or tinted lenses.)
 
Treat yourself to a new pair for the New Year!
 

Frame #270416
 
Our classic wayfarers are always popular, even with those folks who aren’t into geek-chic. Even better, while you can certainly buy these frames in basic black, they also come in light blue, green, and even a transparent/orange model.
 

Frame #270416
 
Standard wayfarers are distinctly unisex, which is just fine, except when you want to wear something that’s a bit more ladylike. Here’s a set of cat eye frames that still echo the classic wayfarer look. Basic black goes with everything, but try the tortoise shell for a bit of fun.
 

Frame #612921
 
Zenni recommends these wayfarers to customers who want to look serious. While there is something to this recommendation, I’d also say that these square-ish frames could also be deeply ironic when paired with a neck beard and trilby. Give the look a try and see what happens.
 
Don’t forget: Zenni sells e-gift cards! Our  gift cards allow recipients to choose and customize their own glasses (or sunglasses) right on Zenni’s site.

Holiday Frame Friday

Not a Christmas sweater person? We don’t blame you. And even if you are, your boss may have a few things to say about your wearing one to work. Still, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit and we have some fun, but work-friendly frames that celebrate both Christmas and the New Year!
 

Frame #284718
 
Santas and snowmen. What’s not to love? We have here a wayfarer frame in scarlet red with some holiday cheer painted on the temples. You could save these for the office Christmas party, but I’d suggest wearing them beginning December 1st to get everyone at work or at the gym excited about Santa, egg nog, and claymation specials.
 

Frame #284521
 
Here’s a similar concept, Christmas images on the temples, but in a black, rectangular frame. If you are the serious type, wear these throughout the day and watch people’s reactions when they realize you are wearing Christmas glasses.
 

Frame #624816
 
If you are into subtlety, check these out.  A deep blue frame with white stars and outlines of holiday gifts, people will have to look long and hard to guess what you are wearing. This is great if you don’t mind being stared at. Otherwise, choose something else.
 

Frame #450014
 
Do you play Santa or Mrs. Claus each year? These gold wire frames are just what you need. Even better, they are incredibly inexpensive. Stock up now!
 

Frame #276517
 
Want to celebrate 2015 in style?  Try these festive purple frames with peacock feathers. These would go wonderfully well with a basic black ensemble. In addition, these deep, rich colors will carry you through the rest of winter in style.
 

Frame #608772
 
Not only will these  floral and paisley prints look great on New Year’s Eve, they’ll also look fantastic at brunch the next day. Plus, they’re a cheery accessory while you wait for the days to get longer during January and February.

Movember is On a Roll With #ZenniMo!


Earlier this month we announced our Show Your Mo’ contest: Take a picture of your Movember stache, upload it to Twitter or Instagram with hashtag #Zennimo and get entered to win Amazon gift cards. The grand prize winner gets a $300 Amazon card while three other lucky winners get a $100 card.
 
Just in time for the holidays, too!
 
We’ve got some excellent entries so far, and we wanted to show them to you:
 

 
These Zenni frames are rocking that stache. Who knew that Ron Burgundy wore glasses when not on camera?
 

 
I dare you to walk up to this lady and say “That’s nacho mustache!”
 
Or maybe not.
 

 
This may be my favorite of the bunch. A perfectly executed tiny stache!
 

 
This fellow appears to be wearing a hoodie, but it is so easy to imagine him in a red velvet smoking jacket. Carry on.
 
While  Show Your Mo’ is all in good fun, Movember is about men’s health and that is a very serious issue indeed. Movember is all about getting men to change their appearance for one month so that everyone can change the way they think about men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
 
Learn more about Movember and men’s health at the Movember Foundation website and send us a picture of you rocking your mustache and glasses!

Frame Friday: Even More Fall Frames

We’ve got even more fall frames to show you, but this time I’m mixing things up a bit. In my previous Frame Fridays, I’ve shown off dark, rich colors. But for those who you like to keep things bright and cheery all year ’round, these are for you:
 

Frame #666918
 
I admit that these plaid glasses aren’t a look that everyone can pull off. But they are gorgeous and would look great paired with a solid black or dark blue shirt or dress.
 

Frame #306416
 
These unisex rectangle frames are made from transparent blue acetate and are great for days when you want to lighten things up a little. Try pairing with an ivory or cream colored shirt and a contrasting black or navy blue jacket.
 

Frame #662919
 
You are in the pink with these transparent frames! The wayfarer style flatters most faces, as does this shade of delicate pink which gives you the look of having a healthy glow – even as the days get shorter and you’re staying inside more and more.
 

Frame #297716
 
These frosted, gradient blue frames scream “ladies who brunch.” You could wear them to work, and they’d look great, but I’m more inclined to suggest pairing them with a warm cardigan, your best jeans, and Bloody Marys with friends.

Famous Glasses And Staches


November is Movember, a time to raise awareness of men’s health! Here at Zenni, we want to celebrate Movember with two promotions:
 

  • Show us your ‘stache on Instagram and Twitter with hashtag #zennimo and you can win the grand prize of a $300 Amazon card or one of three $100 Amazon gift cards.
  • Every time you use the hashtag, we donate $5 to The Movember Foundation. We have a goal of donating $10,000, and we hope you’ll help us reach it!

 
Need some inspiration? Check out these iconic staches:

Tom Selleck as Magnum P.I.

 

Magnum P.I. not only needed to look cool, he also had to protect his eyes from the sun. These aviators in brown alloy with an amber tint  give you plenty of sun protection while going just so with your Hawaiian shirt.
 

Frame #559615
 

Anthony Edwards as “Goose” in Top Gun

 

 
While Goose came to a sad end in Top Gun, we can take comfort in the fact that his alter ego went on to an illustrious career in emergency medicine. His sunglasses were aviators, naturally, and these silver frames blue lenses will take you from aircraft carrier to medical center (and everywhere else) in style.
 

Frame #419111
 

Freddy Mercury

 

 
Nobody had pipes like Freddy and nobody has ever captured his incredible style. Here we have a pair of titanium aviators (it seems to be a thing with mustachioed men), but with an extra bar over the nose. Add some blue tinted lenses for a serious rock and roll look.
 

Frame #217212
 

Burt Reynolds

 

 
Burt Reynolds was mega, mega man in the 70s and nobody wore a stache like him: On the rare occasions when he appeared clean-shaven, something always seemed off. To capture his look, try these black aviators with a yellow tint.
 

Frame #236025
