Jenna Lyons of J. Crew is our fashion hero. She’s got brains, taste, and knows how to turn chunky black frames into a sexy affair. This week, Glamour recognized her as one of the most inspiring women of the year (alongside other strong females such as architect Zaha Hadid and writer Lena Dunham).
If you care to take a page from Jenna’s book with signature black frames, take a peek at Moscot eyewear, which has strong cuts like the Grunya frame. eBay also has a variety of black-frame eyewear to reinvent your look. Get comfortable with having brains and beauty.

No longer do you have to be in New York, Paris, London, or Milan to be at the forefront of fashion. Warby Parker is democratizing the experience, bringing their showroom full of super cool glasses on a tour around the United States. To accomplish this goal, the Warby Parker team has transformed a big yellow school bus — “knitted out” as they say — into a wood-paneled showcase lined with their vintage-inspired eyewear and shelves full of books.
They’ve already hit New York, Boston, and Philly, but there are more stops to go. If you live in Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego, or Los Angeles, you’re in luck. They’ll be on the road until February 19th, 2012. To learn more about the Warby Parker Class Trip, visit their website.
