If someone from the future took a peek inside our closet, they'd have a pretty hard time determining what year it is. We've got '70s flares,'80s puff sleeves all thrown together, ‘90s squared sunglasses and now, we're adding another decade to the mix: the 1940s. Another hint will be that the Golden Age of post-war cinema comes back to life on Netflix, starring in the tv mini series “Hollywood”. From cardigans to loafers, from sparkly and long silk gowns, there's just something about '40s fashion that makes us buzz with excitement when it comes to sunglasses. 1940s styles were indeed fun to wear! Red, blue, white, black, green, and yellow were not uncommon shades among frames. Tinted lenses added more intrigue to the options. In some cases, colored lenses were also thought to correct a certain mood or medical illness and the sunglasses were advertised as the swing mood moderators. The shape of lenses started to include a deep triangle shape, similar to an Aviator style (a true icon of those years) where the top was wider than the bottom of the lens. The harlequin shape, one of the decade’s key shapes, was a rectangle lens with a thick frame and a slight uplift at the outside corners. Another important debut is believed to have happened in the late 40’s: the cat eye. But not as narrow and pointed as they became in the 1950s. Small details were added to the corners such as little gold stars that were advertised to ladies with grey hair. The gold brightened up her face, they said. Which is true at every age, and still today. More than ever it is the perfect time to embrace this aesthetic, adding some glamorous elegance to your new look, and the essential glasses too!
