(Even if school is a distant memory, we can all claim “back to school” as an excuse to make fresh choices.)  Everyone’s getting new clothes, but new GLASSES can really make you feel reborn. Here’s to a clean slate and clear vision: four super-fresh eyeglasses, stacked like library books, from our favorite brands.

Kate Spade

Jaydee eyeglasses

Kate Spade creates classy eyewear, but they still know how to have fun. Available in 4 pretty color choices, including classic black and ballet slipper pink, their Jaydee glasses are a perfect example of this. The blue is most unique, but a flirty cat-eye shape, and temples featuring a mottled, animal print (or translucent pastel) guarantee you will get noticed no matter what color you choose.

Ray-Ban

RX6365 eyeglasses

Ray-Ban eyeglasses are known for their statement-making, geek-chic styles. But don’t think there isn’t a more grown-up side of Ray-Ban. These RX6365’s are sophisticated, but you still get the trademark shark fin temples and an array of colors to choose from. Perfect for someone who has matured over the summer.

Oakley

Pitchman R eyeglasses

These Oakley Pitchman eyeglasses are for that intellectual guy with a serious sporty streak. They’re a unique combination of high-tech materials and rugged detailing with an old-school shape (round lenses and keyhole bridge.) For some reason these remind me of when Ned Flanders takes his shirt off  – and he’s ripped. oakley pitchman R eyeglasses

Prada

PR 27SV Eyeglasses

Here’s the easiest piece of advice to follow if you want to look too cool for school – just get a pair of Prada glasses. The two-tone colorways on the maroon and grey versions of the PR 27SV are particular appealing, as are the triangular metal rivets on the end points.
