If you’re a true vintage fan, then the Blue Ribbon collection is right up your alley. Think 1970s vibes, a time when eyewear became oversized and frames got experimental with colors. Gone were the bold blacks and classic brow line specs. Glasses started to incorporate Havana, nudes and mottled browns, as well as peachy tones and transparent acetate designs.
Lenses got larger and frame fronts provided even more coverage. This was a time when boho took over the world, and granny glasses were totally chic.
This unique range of eyewear brings back nostalgic influences of seventies fashion and accessories, and every design encapsulates real vintage style from this era.
Yes, Gucci produced seventies inspired campaigns in recent years and sure, Chloe has been doing oversized frames and gradient lenses since the beginning of time. But there are fewer eyewear collections out there that are as true to the decade as this one.
Blue Ribbon doesn’t just draw inspiration from this stylish time in history; it emulates the 1970s look to perfection. So channel your inner hippie chick and check out some of the latest spectacles from the beautiful Blue Ribbon eyewear collection.
Blue Ribbon BR11
These BR11 spectacles from the Blue Ribbon collection feature a pretty pink translucent frame front, gold metal detailing at the temples and an oversized lens.
There are 3 sizes to choose from so you can find your perfect fit, and there are also 3 other colors available.
Blue Ribbon BR5
With a lens size ranging from 53 to 59, these Blue Ribbon BR5 frames are seriously oversized and are the perfect pair of specs for the ‘glam granny’ look.
Blue Ribbon BR25
Mottled browns and patterned frames were all the rage back in the 1970s, which is why we love the blue Ribbon BR25 glasses so much.
They feature a unique brown mosaic print throughout the frame front and temples, and the design combines luxe gold metal for that designer finish. Truly sophisticated and a must-have style accessory for vintage loving women.
Blue Ribbon BR16
For a cool toned frame color, opt for an icy grey/blue like this one. The BR16 frames feature a subtle frame and slimline temples for a ‘barely there’ appearance. This style of spectacle frame will blend in seamlessly with anything in your wardrobe, making it the ideal accessory to team with an eclectic wardrobe.
