    There's no doubt - celebrities in the past sure had style! With Hollywood stars emerging as the major power of style and appeal in the 1950's and 60's, they set the stage for almost all the trends and styles of the era. Luckily for us, this period in time had wonderful taste that we still can't get enough of! In today's post, we want to share some of our favorite bespectacled celebrities from the past and show you how to get their timeless looks.

Demure yet filled with class, Grace's glasses effortlessly lend her charm while not overpowering her gorgeous features!

     

    To grab some of Grace Kelly's style, we picked two of our favorite vintage frames that have charm yet are neutral enough for daily wear. Starting off, our first pick has a great shape that's true to fifties form while staying neutral in chic black.

    Our second pick has some more pizzazz with a tortoise shell coloration and some detailing over the temples but stays true to Grace Kelly's effortlessly understated style – making them a perfect fit for even today's vixen!

    lucille ball eyeglasses

    Iconic and hilarious, of course Lucille Ball had to make it somewhere in our Top 5 list! Stealing the number 3 spot, Lucille delighted everyone with her character on I Love Lucy -very memorably in the above pair of chic, bold vintage glasses. Carrying a thicker frame, these specs were a great way to accent Lucy's larger-than-life personality and give her some real sass!! We love how much of a key piece they are to her outfit and picked two great, authentic options for any gal who wants to nab this look!

    First off, we love the bold frame on our first choice for obvious reasons! Carrying a green hue, these frames are bold without being too much and have a great shape that helps them accent the wearers eyes perfectly.

    Then, we went for a classic look with our second frame that's effortless to match to any outfit in a sleek black cat eye. Rocking slightly thicker frames again, these glasses are a great focal point for any outfit and they're filled with a dose of sass that makes them utterly irresistible!

     

    Audrey Hepburn cat eye glassesEasily recognizable, we couldn't forget about the iconic lenses of Audrey Hepburn in her 1961 hit Breakfast at Tiffany's. A memorable accessory, Audrey's classic sunglasses are still a fashion icon today and we couldn't resist sharing our favorite, classic frames that embody this glam style. What many people don't know is that because our frames are all in great shape, they're easy to turn into sunglasses at any optometrists office. All you have to do is take them in! To help narrow your search, we've picked 3 choices that we think you'll love!

    First on the list is a stylish pair of vintage cat eyes that perfectly mimics Audrey's with a bold frame and minute detailing.

    Second we chose a pair that has the same style and coloration but has a little extra something with a rhinestone studded lower temple. MEOW!

     

    Finally we chose another great pair of tortoise shell eyeglasses, but this time that has a slightly different shape for a more laid-back accessory!

    James Dean vintage eyeglasses

     

    Still a symbol today, we couldn't leave out one of our favorite male celebrities who wore glasses with all the charm of a true Adonis - James Dean! Both a classic bad boy and sophisticated actor his glasses made him even more handsome (something that we didn't think was possible!). For both men and women, James Dean made the horn-rimmed shape super popular, and we're happy to have some authentic frames to share with you to finish off our list!

     

    First off we love the shape and fade of this pair of glasses. With a little decoration from the screws on the temples, these vintage eyeglasses are a wonderful unisex option.

    Then, we chose our second match based on the fact that we just couldn't get enough of their redwood upper rim that fades perfectly into a translucent body. With a rugged grace, we think even James Dean would approve of these specs!
