The summer of love brought together a new generation of social activists looking to spread love, not war, and their sentiment was reflected in the music of the time. It was only a couple of years later that Woodstock, arguably the most famous music festival of all time, took place, bringing together more than 400,000 people for a celebration of life and love, and setting the stage for festivals to come.
These days, summer festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly, Summerfest, and Lollapalooza are a lot more organized than nearly half a million people crashing a dairy farm in the Catskills. With food, tents, restrooms, and music on multiple stages, you’re going to have the time of your life when you attend one of these funky festivals. Before you go, though, you want to get your festival style just right with cut-off shorts, a gauzy kimono, embellished braids, a panama hat, and of course, stunning eyewear.
Whether you plan to turn your look up to 11 when hitting the summer music fest scene, or you simply want to look your best while chilling with good friends, microbrews, and your favorite vinyl on hot summer nights, throwback glasses are just the way to get your groove on, and Peepers has you covered with a slew of retro styles to choose from.
High-fidelity, or hi-fi, recordings feature the very best sound quality, delivering Robert Plant’s every warble and Adele’s every breath, sound so phenomenal you can almost hear the ridges on Eddie Van Halen’s fingers sliding over the guitar strings. When you want the same great quality from your eyewear, you can’t go wrong with the classic appeal of Hi-Fi frames.
The round, painted wire front face offers the vintage appeal of college preppiness paired with a bold pop of shiny blue, green, or purple to really amp up your summer style. Temples are touched with gold, tapering to a soft matte tip in tortoise that hugs your head in comfort. The party’s up front with these stunners that are sure to get noticed wherever you go.
Lightweight frames are great for daily wear, but sometimes you need a bit more bulk to express your personal style through eyewear, and this is where Dream Weaver frames really deliver. Earthy tortoise encircles your eyes in soft ovals that taper up to subdued cat-eye corners. From there, the temples are wrapped in the ethereal romance of traditional Japanese Shibori textile dye patterns in your choice of green or blue. Go Boho with these far-out frames.
Tie-dye isn’t just for t-shirts, as the Flashback frames aptly illustrate. Hues of pink or blue punctuate the temples of these tie-dye masterpieces, while semi-translucent frames in matching colors outline the eyes in the slender and lightweight rectangles of retro readers. If you’re looking for the perfect marriage of comfort, design, and hippie haute couture, you’ll find it here.
Wayfarers don’t get much cooler or more colorful than Good Times glasses, which practically beg you to let the good times roll. Succulent berry, jazzy blue, and snappy tortoise fronts are bordered by temples in matching tones arranged in a herringbone pattern edged in metallic gold. Shine and sophistication highlight these tantalizing frames that will give you the confidence to rock out to your favorite tunes all summer long.
