Androgynous, tom boyish, cool and casual…whatever you want to call this look, Gwen Stefani certainly knows how to pull it off with style. The fashion icon and singer is usually known for her glamorous get ups, but recently she shared a selfie with her Instagram followers which showed her lounging around in a cute hat and eyewear ensemble.
The laid back look was complemented by braided hair and au natural make up which is a change from her signature cat eye and red lip combo. Simply captioned “good morning”, we think Gwen may be hinting that she “woke up like this”.
The snap received a lot of attention, not just because Gwen looks great but because the hat she’s wearing may confirm the current relationship rumours between her and The Voice co-presenter Blake Shelton. Her camo print country-style baseball cap is very similar to one he’s regularly seen wearing.
Of course, here at SelectSpecs it wasn’t Gwen’s hat that caught our attention but her amazing statement specs. Her style of choice was a pair of over-sized thick-rimmed wayfarer style glasses in black. While her frames are quite masculine (especially when teamed with a trucker cap) we think Gwen looks fabulous. The large black glasses frame her eyes beautifully and add a cool, contemporary (and even sexy) edge to her look.
Gwen is no stranger to great eyewear, in fact she’s launching her own collection of designer glasses next year, so it’s no surprise that she’s opted for such a fashion-forward pair. Want to get Gwen’s off-duty style for yourself? We’ve got three pairs of glasses for that borrowed-from-the-boyfriend look.
Ray Ban RX5121
We don’t know where Gwen got her gorgeous glasses from, but you can copy her look with this pair of Ray Ban RX5121 glasses. Ray Ban are legends when it comes to eyewear and the wayfarer style is one of their most famous designs – it’s actually where the term wayfarer came from. This classic pair keeps things simple with thick, over-sized frames finished in glossy black with Ray Ban branding on the sides.
Want to get the Gwen Stefani look but don’t have her millions in the bank? For a cheaper alternative, check out the Savannah P2249 glasses. These sassy specs look extremely similar to her pair but (presumably) cost a fraction of the price at just £10. These bargain frames even feature the same silver dot detail on the side, making it almost impossible to tell the difference.
Finally, add a unique twist to the standard wayfarer style with this pair of fantastic frames from Guess. The GU2333 glasses feature simple black frames and are finished with a subtle patterned finish on the arms. Perfect for adding a feminine touch to this androgynous look.
As Gwen has proven, accessories are key and a pair of specs can add a cool finishing touch to a plain and simple look. What’s your favourite style of glasses for relaxed days? Let us know in the comments section below.
