Bazaar: Fabulous at Every Age

practically tear my Harper's Bazaar apart when it comes in the mail each month. January's was no exception, particularly "Fabulous at Every Age" which got me psyched for spring's graphic prints, bright colors and florals.

"Even though it's technically still winter, there's no reason you can't get excited about spring. There are so many trends to look forward to, from the futuristically charged ensembles seen at Calvin Klein and Balenciaga to the balletic pieces shown on the runways of Michael Kors and Vera Wang and the requisite LWDs seen all over (but perfected at Versace and Stella McCartney). So why not start making your wish list now?"

Here are their recommended shades:
30s - KEEP IT CLASSIC WITH A CLEAN NAVY-AND-WHITE PALETTE FOR DAY OR NIGHT


Vogue 3552 S:
Cost: $99
Colors: Black, Gold
Retailer: Sunglasshut.com


40s - TRY BOLD PRINTS IN SOPHISTICATED HUES AND SMART CUTS

Giorgio Armani 317/S:
Cost: $200
Colors: Shiny Black, Havana, Bordeaux (as seen at left), Blue
Retailer: SunglassSpecialist.com


60s - TRANSFORM NEUTRAL BASICS WITH VIBRANTLY HUED YET REFINED SHAPES

Dita Lotus:
Cost: $150
Colors: Tortoise, Red, Black
Retailer: 80sPurple.com


70+ - EMBRACE THE NEW CROP OF ELEGANT AND ALLURING SEPARATES

Blinde by Richard Walker - Oh My Ooh Me:
Cost: $260
Colors: Black, Red, Tortoise
Retailer: Saks Fifth Avenue


I personally think any of these sunglasses would be lovely for a woman of any generation, but I am certainly looking forward to spring.

i tear apart my bazaar too. i always love their fabulous at any age, it's funny i'm young, but i'm always coveting the stuff from the 60+ section.
