Get on Trend: Tim Gunn Says that Glasses Are Your Wardrobe’s Secret Weapon

Tim Gunn isn’t trying to make glasses great again: They never were out of style.

The Project Runway judge partnered with Transitions lenses to persuade eyewear skeptics into “Seeing Life Through a New Lens” by protecting their eyes from harmful exposure to UV rays and blue light that’s emitted from technology. For instance, did you know that 75% of Americans claim to be concerned about UV eye exposure, and yet only 31% actually wear sunglasses when they go outside? We’re hypocrites, but why should we be when Transitions lenses can fit into virtually any frame as a bold fashion accessory and are available in nearly any prescription? And if you don’t believe us, take this photo of our editor improperly hailing a taxi, shot by Vogue street style photographer Phil Oh, as evidence that Transitions lenses are not your dad’s eyewear technology.

Transitions block 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays, and their tint adjusts to accommodate natural and blue light from our cell phones, laptops, iPads throughout the day. Gunn suggests that when you finally commit to using Transitions lenses, you should consider round frames, vintage square frames, and browline frames as fashionable options.

“There’s a lot that goes into picking the perfect frame, but picking the perfect lens is a snap. Transitions bring function to the fashion world,” says Gunn. “They fit seamlessly into any lifestyle and keep you seeing and looking your best in any light.”
