So, I never got aboard the Wayfarer trend train with all of young Hollywood. Frankly, I couldn't figure out how the same sunglasses Crazy Cruise wore in "Risky Business" would work on my face. And when Kristen Dunst started rocking the retro shades in red, I immediately stashed them in my "Do Not Wear. Ever." file.
But — and there's always a but — that was before I saw the album art for The Kills' fabulous new disc, "Midnight Boom." There's the painfully chic Alison Mosshart in a black-and-white photo — a pair of teal Wayfarers adds the only punch of color to the shot. How cool.
I can't find the photo online, so use your imagination while you peep these:
Who knew that Wayfarers come in such great colors? White, hot pink, purple, tortoise shell — ooh-la-la. But be careful: Embracing the teal Wayfarers is the start of a very slippery slope towards liquid leggings and poodle bangs. Stay strong.
