Retro Peepers: Vintage Glasses to Make Your Eyes Pop!
Retro Peepers is the place to go for that cute, 1950’s librarian look known by its stylish cat’s eye frames and reading glasses.
Eyewear doesn’t need to hide your gorgeous gaze behind boring frames and Retro Peepers firmly believes that glasses can and should be a stylish accessory to any outfit. With a range of men’s and women’s designs to choose from, their unique retro look is anything but plain.
Founded over a decade ago by entrepreneur Annie Towler, Retro Peepers began modestly as Jeepers Peepers Retro Eyewear. Towler was looking for some stylish reading glasses for herself and could not seem to find any that matched her classic pin up style and fun-loving fashion. So she did what any artsy gal would do and designed them herself. Twelve years later, her one-woman business ships worldwide from Scotland, offering hundreds of designs and rolling out new ones every year.
Peppered with fun quotes by vintage icons like Marilyn Monroe and Vera Wang, Retro Peepers’ site is fun to browse while shopping for the perfect rockabilly reading- and sunglasses. You’ll find women’s styles inspired by the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s, all of which can be reglazed to your specific optical prescription. Each design is named after a different beloved pin up girl and can be ordered in a variety of colors to suit any rockabilly or vintage outfit.
Also be sure to check out their new collection known as, “The Edge.” With men’s and women’s glasses, these designs are all handmade and limited edition. They aim to recreate classic vintage looks using modern materials for a firmer and longer lasting construction than the old-fashioned originals.
While these are available with a variety of different reading glasses’ prescription strengths, any prescription can be added to the lens for a small surcharge to make them right for you. As Retro Peepers’ founder likes to point out, you don’t have just one pair of shoes, so why would you only own one pair of glasses?
With the huge variety of stylish retro options to choose from, there is no need to settle for just one pair. Make every outfit fabulous with the eye-popping designs of Retro Peepers!
