This year is all about you and your success. You want to score an internship, impress your new teachers or focus on your start-up. Whatever your specific plans for the new school year, the overall goal is to move a bit closer to your dreams.
That’s why you put a lot of thought into your smart, professional look. Finding the perfect frames to convey this goal is an essential on your checklist.
Goal-oriented students need to pair their first-day ensemble with glasses that give them a polished look. You can achieve exactly that with a professional back-to-school outfit topped off with a sophisticated pair of frames.
The Clubmasters frame is the go-to accessory for a grown-up feel. If you’ve decided to dress like an adult and take the professional style approach, then these frames definitely need to be part of your everyday wardrobe.
There’s no better accessory to make you look determined, serious and professional that a pair of high-quality glasses.
Cat-eye glasses, thick frames or Clubmaster glasses are a must have if you are prepping to make your first steps in the professional world. Not only are they sexy and feminine, but they emphasize your facial features, and demand respect.
A nice pair of designer glasses will liven up your face in an instant. This can cut down on your prep time each morning, making getting ready for school a breeze. They also complement your face and your eyebrows.
A professional look requires savvy shirts, heels and dresses. For the greatest fashion statement, mix and match colors. Remember: you’re still in college; it’s not yet time for the dull black and white. Don’t be afraid to go for a V-neck blouse or striped shirt. Try patterned dresses and colorful heels.
For the future business partners, a rectangular shape glasses frame in bright colors will add a pop of style to the traditional suit and tie.
Get all dressed up in a serious, professional manner. Break out the button shirt, sweater and suit, and get ready to impress your teachers and managers alike.
In terms of accessories, a watch is essential. Bowties are optional. If you carry a laptop, a simple, solid color backpack will serve you well.

The tortoise shell pattern is beautifully timeless, and it’s also making a comeback this fall. If you are a true fashionista, take heed. Tortoise shell glasses have become the must-have accessory in the world of fashion.
Your eclectic style will get a major boost once you add these beauties to your collection. Tortoise shell frames come in a range of colors. Choose fall colors for your back-to-school selection, with options that include orange, brown or yellow.
Mix and match with accessories that align with the tortoise shell tone. For example, brown and honey tortoise shell frames look dashing with gold necklaces and earrings.
Here’s where style meets imagination.
You have been probably wearing aviator and oversized shades all summer. But now you can include them in your back to school outfits with these classroom-appropriate takes on your beloved sunglass shapes.
The mix between tortoise shell frames and the aviator silhouette creates a new style that is bound turn heads.
Break out the fall shirts, cardigans, and coats. The tortoise shell colorway goes best with solid colors, so you might want to consider adding more solids to your wardrobe.
Stylish and dapper, the tortoise colorway is a fantastic choice for any fashion enthusiast.

Ladies, if you want a cute college outfit that gives you the smart, geeky look, you need a pair of thick, round glasses frames.
Opt for a pair of round thick frame glasses, like the Vint & York Owl, and you will turn heads around campus. These geeky eyeglasses are playful and fun. You can easily mix and match them with many back to school outfits without missing a beat.

Nerd glasses work best with elegant outfits. Style smart nerd eyeglasses with an equally smart outfit. Opt for buttoned shirts, ties, and tweed for a more professional look, or jean jackets and pre-washed jeans for a dash of casual. Don’t forget to comb your hair with a notable part on the left or right.
Pretentious outfits have never been your cup of tea. Neither has tea. You feel most relaxed enjoying a drink while hanging out with friends. Your wardrobe consists mainly of T-shirts, jeans, boots, and sneakers.
You love the casual life. It fits you and we understand. But just because you’re laid-back in general doesn’t mean you can’t make a stellar impression in the new academic year. Vint & York glasses are your best back-to-college-accessory. You get a new look without having to try too hard.
Choose a simple clear frame because it goes with every single one of your fall outfits.
Clear frames are stunning, and they also complement your facial features. Because they have such a gorgeous look, you’re sure to get a lot of attention and admirers.
The clear frame is exceptionally versatile, which means it can be easily matched with all yourfall outfits.
Casual, trendy glasses for women align well with jeans, blouses and leather jackets. But you can pretty much wear them with anything. Just wear what makes you feel good, and the frames will do the rest.
College guys are known for loving their beer drinking and their relaxed outfits. Often consisting of only an unbuttoned shirt and a pair of loose pants, the casual style is something of a trademark for the college man.
We recommend a casual pair of eyeglasses to go with your standard back-to-school-outfits. Vint & York has just the right look you need.
The Vint & YorkAstor browline rectangular eyeglasses are stylish and discreet. They are incredibly lightweight, made out of metal and acetate. So light, you won’t even know you are wearing them.
Wear what makes you comfortable, but don’t forget the accessories rule: too much is not good. Too many accessories can lead to overkill, with an outfit that’s confused and busy. It’s better to carefully select a few key accessories that work together to make a smart statement.
A hat, for example, looks fantastic with the Vint & York Astor’s narrow frames. A cap would look equally as dashing.
When matching your outfits to this frame, take colors into consideration. A white, black or red shirt will go well with the black browline eyeglasses, while a green one won’t.
College is a great place to engage in sports. Some college students are specifically focused on sports as part of their college career, while others just like to wear comfortable sports outfits.
Regardless of which type are you, sports eyewear trends are hot. They feature a thick, resistant frame that is able to withstand shock and an active lifestyle.
Our favorite sporty glasses for women consist of those with square, oversized, thick frames. Not only are they bound to make you look good, but they’re also designed to survive in your bag.
While we don’t advise keeping your glasses in your bag without an eyeglass case, we know how hectic college life can be. Your eyeglasses may end up in your bag without a case, or in other places where they can be damaged — like on your face after you fall asleep. Choosing a strong frame is a wise idea to ensure your glasses stand up to whatever comes their way.
The colorful colorway of sporty eyeglasses for women makes it ideal for sports outfits. The Vint & York blue and yellow frame can be matched with nearly any tracksuit and sneakers. If you’re thinking about joining a sports or cheerleading team, these glasses can help you give it your best shot.
You can also match this colorful frame to your casual outfits, especially those that involve wearing sneakers or sports/college jackets.
If your top fall outfits involve raincoats and shorts for your time in the gym or on the field, you’ll appreciate a thick and durable acetate frame you can rely on.
You might not spend all the time in the gym, but even outside of it, you need an eyeglass frame that fits your personality and style.
The Vint & York rectangular browline eyeglasses can also be a terrific accessory for your lectures and seminars, as they also give you a smart look.
Besides your regular sports outfits, you can style these frames with V-neck T-shirts and sweaters, casual jeans and college jackets.
When it’s time for exams, pair your designer glasses with a crisp shirt and cardigan for a super smart look. That way you’ll have the right attitude and vibe for acing the tests.
We just couldn’t leave out those who dedicate their lives to help others build theirs. Thank you, teachers! Teachers set an example for their students, which makes it crucial that they look the part.
We love the teacher look. It’s simple yet elegant, practical but with a note of distinction. Since a lot of professors wear glasses, we decided to help them update their fall outfits.
The wood finish eyeglasses are an ideal fall style for professors. The look aligns fabulously with tweed jackets, ties and Oxford shoes.
These vintage-inspired Vint & York frames also go perfectly with the fall weather. And imagine how keen they’ll look sitting on your desk? It’s surely time for professors to give these designer glasses a try.
Female professors have an equally amazing option here at Vint & York. We recommend an ultra-feminine frame, such as the Cat’s Meow, that will convince students to never forget their assignments.
Because this season’s top colors are dark, choose frames in a softer, lighter hue to add contrast to your outfits.
Though the cat-eye shape will make you look more serious, the soft colors will suggest you are open to compromise. You’ll have a look that makes it clear that students can always visit you for advice.
Vint & York truly appreciates teachers, and we’re showing our appreciation this fall with a special discount code teachers can use for their back-to-school eyewear purchases.
