With back-to-school season upon us,
now’s the time to stock up on frames

A little goes a long way. That’s true of many things in life, and with back-to-school season on the horizon, it’s time to freshen the frame offerings for your youngest customers. Great kids’ eyewear is on the rise from high-end to value, with many brands launching or adding to their children’s lines. The latest children’s models offer more than meets the eye, too. Start with flattering tones, logo treatments and decorations. Then discover the hidden benefits: These are tough eyeglasses, each one built to endure a little more than the average adult frame. Look for flexibility, robust construction and lots of design details for improved comfort and fit. — CLODAGH NORTON
