1950’s eyewear

August 16, 2010

If you are a regular reader of our blog you will know that the fifties were the time of fun and fashionable accessories and the eyewear or spectacles as they were known were no exception to this!

The 50’s spectacles were daring and delightful, inlaid with diamante stones, covered with glitter dust or patterned like these ones here, which are actually vintage replicas sold by Vintage50sEyewear on Etsy .   But really it was the shape of these glasses that defined their personality.

The glasses had strong high wings at the top of either side.  Like the ones that Dame Edna used to wear.  Here is a great picture of a range of 50’s glasses that I found on Sweeney Kat Pyjamas blog.
