Introducing the Warby Parker Winter Collection

Winter’s best diversions—layering thermals under oversized flannel tops, watching your breath steam up the window as you watch snow fall, snuggling under a pile of blankets with a mug of hot cocoa—deserve a proper pair of glasses to bring them into focus.

Warby Parker’s new Winter Collection is rustic meets modern.

With great new shapes and colors, these new glasses are perfect for the holidays and beyond.  The new collection features six new shapes in five new colors, including two custom two-toned acetates, in addition to some of their most dependably stylish frames in cold-weather hues.   These glasses make good companions for rooting around a bookcase, dashing through the snow, or otherwise getting up to indoor mischief. The possibilities stretch on as shorter days give way to longer nights.

All frames are $95, including prescription lenses.

Of the new frames and colors available, I’ve chosen 5 I’d love to have on my face.  I’m totally digging the Welty in Plum Marblewood, the Edgesworth in Sage, the Nash in Greystone, the Web in Saddle Russet, and the Watts in Newsprint Grey.  Check ’em out…

They’re very classic frames with subtle modern twists that just take them an extra step farther, but they still have that natural feel that just makes you think of cozy fires, pine trees, and warm wool sweaters.  I really like the Pum Marblewood color–it’s a neutral, but still has a little pop of color.  The whole collection is very unique, and perfect for winter… or year-round.

Warby Parker isn’t just another online glasses store.

There are two things that separate Warby Parker from the rest.  The first is that Warby Parker has a home try on program, where you choose 5 frames to try on, and the send them to you for 5 days.  You get to wear them around, see how they feel, get feedback from friends and family, and actually see how they look on you.  Even the brick and mortar eyeglass stores don’t let you test-drive 5 different frames for 5 days, and that means that you’ll really like the frames you get from Warby Parker.  And if you don’t, they still offer a no questions asked, 30-day return policy from the day you receive your order.

But the real thing that sets Warby Parker apart?  The Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program.  Warby Parker understands the impact glasses can have on a person.  Glasses can increase one’s income by 20%, enable students to see a blackboard and offer dignity to those with poor eyesight. Because of this understanding, Warby Parker works with experienced non-profit partners to ensure that each sale of our frames will give someone in need access to affordable glasses.  Pretty cool, right?

Oh, and one more thing?  If you’re in the market for a monocle, Warby Parker has one.
