Published on February 01, 2021

Pantone’s 2021 Colors of the Year: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating convey a message of strength and hopefulness that everyone needs to face this new year’s challenges. EyeBuyDirect, the leading online eyewear retailer, is bringing this inspiration to its new Retro Acetate Collection, giving consumers a chance to express and spread optimism through their eyewear options.

Characterized by the iconic 60s look, the Retro Acetate collection includes oversized glasses, funky frames, and oval styles with yellow-tinted lenses that help make your vision brighter and your fashion style “far-out.” The collection includes 11 frames for men and women starting at $32 and qualifies for two-day shipping. Some of the most popular styles include:

  • Ellen: A bold frame with an impactful punch, featuring a multidimensional tortoiseshell finish highlighting the full-rim acetate construction. The expansive square lenses and thick face front make for a decidedly retro style, while the spring hinges offer an extra comfortable fit so you can look fabulous all day, every day.
  • Kit: This mid-century inspired look is full of style, featuring rectangular lenses surrounded by a chunky acetate face front. The full-rim design is complete with a translucent green finish and double stud rivets — the perfect frame for those who love to stand out. Designed with spring hinges for an extra comfortable fit.
  • Sonny: The vintage vibes are real with this retro-inspired frame, featuring striking square lenses and a bold acetate face front. But that’s not the only thing to note — Sonny’s distinct flat brow makes for a look to remember, especially when paired with the glossy black finish. Complete with spring hinges for comfort.
  • Bree: Bree is a vintage-inspired frame featuring soft oval lenses and a chunky acetate face front. The translucent beige finish brings out the soft curves and delicate features — perfect for those who prefer to make a statement without saying too much. Complete with slightly tapered temple tips and molded nose pads for comfort.

All glasses can also be customized with prescription options and blue light blocking lenses; additionally, all frames are part of the Buy 1, Give 1 program, allowing customers to donate a pair of glasses with every purchase to someone in need around the world.
