warby parker home try-on (take 3)

This post contains a few affiliate links.

Warby Parker has come out with a bunch of new frames and colors since my last home try-on, so I ordered 5 new pairs to sample. I had much better luck this time around (you may remember I pretty much hated everything last time) and will probably order something from this batch.

With the try-on program, you order 5 pairs of frames free of charge and get to try them out for 5 days before sending them back with a prepaid label. If you find something you like, you simply input your prescription during the order checkout process and Warby Parker will send you a new pair of prescription glasses. Prices are reasonable, materials and production are comparable to anything else on the market, and Warby Parker works with vision care facilities around the globe to help people see better.

This time around, I ordered (left to right, top to bottom):

Chalmer in Striped Beach, $145.00

I like these, but I don’t look very cool in them. And obviously, I want to look cool.

Chamberlain in Crystal, $95.00

Very square. Very crooked on my face.

Newton in Striped Molasses, $95.00

It’s amazing how much darker these look against my pale skin compared to the product image. I really like the slight cat eye reference here.

Haskell in Crystal, $95.00

These fade into my face pretty well and the rounded shape is more appealing than the square-ish shape of Chamberlain. These are in the top 2.

June in Moonstone, $95.00

These look more brown in person, but they’re really cool. Maybe too cool?

I think I’m going to go with Haskell or June, but I want to do a bit more exploring on the website and see what other color options they have for the frames I tried out.

    Thanks! My current pair of frames are black, so I was thinking I'd mix it up, but maybe dark frames are best.

    Thanks! I'm leaning toward June.

    I don't think you could go wrong with either the Haskell or June. Very cute!

    I like the third pair best on you. I think that contrast is really cool!
