Eyewear: Colorful Frames


Jump-start spring with a fresh new palette
of colorful frame choices.

Remember the excitement of getting a new box of crayons when you were a kid? Shopping for eyewear is a little like that these days, since glasses have become a playful and fun accessory as well as a fashion statement. Popularly priced frames and flex spending accounts mean more people than ever can build an eyewear wardrobe, switching shades to suit their moods and outfits. Happily, the era of trying to make glasses as inconspicuous as possible is over. Whether they want to go big and bold or a bit more muted, open your eyewear box of crayons and help your customers discover the difference color can make in their lives. — MARISSA WALSH
