Seeing White in Sicily

September 8, 2010

Throw away your black glasses, guys, and get with the program.  White is the new black, at least when it comes to eyewear.

Italians always have the last best word on design, so you can bet these will soon be popular in Peoria.

How Italians love their glasses. Don a pair and voilà: you’re an aviator, Grand Prix driver, star.

Women here are wearing them, too. And you, dear Reader? Maybe you’re already wearing white?


Here’s Lucy, a reader from Canada, who’s been wearing white for quite some time–she got them at the Dollar Store!!! Way to go, Lucy!

  • Jann, You are becoming a regular fashionista trend spotter, and my only source for this sort of news (matching outfits, speedos, white-framed glasses…what next?)! How’s it going with the garbage guys and your antique collecting?

      Aysha–it’s a contagious disease in Italy, focusing on fashion…. who knows what will turn up next? I certainly cannot predict!
      My garbage man found an old chair for me, and I’m patiently waiting for more treasures to turn up. I don’t think I can open an antique store yet!

  • I like them, they do look good with a tan! I also like the bigger buggy like lenses too!

  • Jann, I have seen the white glasses too!! I wanted to mention how much I enjoy each and every one of your posts. You manage capture the true sicily:)

    I’m not so sure I like that trend! To me, they do look a little like they are all from the dollar store! And…..after all, it is after Labor Day!

      I can tell you they look awful on me–maybe you have to have a good dark tan and Mediterranean face to pull it off?

    I’m wearing white sun glasses here in Turkey too,Jann.

  • OMG! I have been wearing white rimmed glasses since last winter, I found them at the dollar store! lol…I have to post a picture and then relate back to your post tomorrow!
