Lizzy - Stripping It Back

At this time of year, I’m drawn to simple shapes, soft colours and gentle styles. In my mind, accessories are as important as the outfit. I choose them carefully to compliment the aesthetic and the mood of the look I aim to achieve. So, my eyewear must also be pared back. Cue timeless basics and simple lines.

Here, I’ve accessorised my relaxed denim jeans and white shirt with its broderie detail with three pieces of STEPPER EYEWEAR. Each one is beautiful, and timeless. They are styles that whisper rather than shout and we all need a quantum of quiet at this time of year.

Model SI-30137 in colour F230, a translucent nude pink, has a touch of filigree detail at the temple and the side. It is a perfect day-to-evening style in a flattering soft shape. As with all STEPPER eyewear, it is supremely lightweight and comfortable. It feels as though it’s barely there. And as with any translucent frame, it highlights the undereye area to optically minimise the appearance of dark shadows, helpfully disguising the fact that Christmas merriment has taken its toll. 

Model SI-30148 is in colour F150, a flattering grey which suits every skin tone because the shade is neither too cool nor too warm. The slightly upswept style draws the eye upwards, again detracting from dark shadows. There is subtle patterning at the temple which adds interest and visual texture.

The detail on model SI-30128 in colour F440 comes courtesy of its metal sides. The mid-brown shade is mellow, soothing and easy on the eye. It is sophisticated and chic; understated elegance at its finest. This one is going straight onto my favourites list.
