Since her High School Musical days, actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens has been busy. She’s starred in various movies and TV shows, released albums and become somewhat of a flawless fashion icon. Whether you like her films and music, you can’t deny the girl’s got style and amazing looks to go with it. The Disney star has debuted some gorgeous get-ups, from sleek street fashion to perfect red carpet glamour.
Just a few days ago, Vanessa shared an Instagram snap of a new look she’s been trying out, combining some retro fashion choices with a pair of cool, vintage-inspired specs. Doesn’t she look amazing?
Teaming a black lace top with a choker style necklace, Vanessa channeled a nineties look, which is so on trend right now. She continued the theme with a slick of burgundy lipstick and black eyeliner.
Not wanting to stick to one era though, she took inspiration from a few decades, teaming her nineties ensemble with a vintage-style hair do. Her voluminous curls add a very fifties edge to her look. Vanessa captured the image “Hot rollers got me feelin ma self”, revealing the secret to how she got her hair so big and bouncy – rollers, of course!
Combining two looks like this is a difficult one, but she’s certainly pulled it off, we think you’ll agree.
Finally, she really got into the retro theme with a pair of classic glasses. Her horn-rimmed browline frames finish off the look to perfection.
If you want to copy this style for yourself (and who wouldn’t?!!) it’s so simple to achieve. Just pair some vintage specs with a nineties-inspired lace top, then add some dark lipstick in a purple shade. Next, add some eyeliner and style your hair into loose curls with a large barreled curling iron or rollers to really nail the look.
While we think Vanessa’s make-up and styling skills are on-point, it’s the glasses that really make this look. Browline glasses are so on-trend right now, combining a sexy librarian look with a vintage vibe.
Horn-rimmed or Clubmaster glasses can add a smart and sophisticated look to your wardrobe, and their pared-back design is easy to style with any type of clothing, from smart to casual. Just a few of the reasons we love them. Browline’s come in a range of designs and colour, but Vanessa has gone for a classic version, with black frames and clear lenses.
If you love the look of browline glasses, SelectSpecs have some great styles to choose from.
Ray Ban RX6295
Steal Vanessa’s style with a pair of cool Ray Ban Clubmaster glasses. Clubmasters are often considered the original horn-rimmed design, making this retro style popular again today. The Ray Ban RX6295 glasses have an iconic look, finished with brushed black frames with Ray Ban branding on the lenses.
For a more affordable take on this trend, check out the Hallmark F3026 glasses, which are a steal at just £25. This stylish pair are very similar to the pair Vanessa is wearing, with rounded lenses, glossy black frames and silver detail at the corners, so you can get the look without breaking the bank.
Marc Jacobs MJ543
Finally, for a designer twist on Vanessa’s look, we love the Marc Jacobs MJ 543 glasses. Staying true to the style with bold, black horn-rimmed frames, they feature a more feminine cat eye shape and smaller lenses.
