I keep seeing photographs of celebrities in Westward Leaning sunglasses (Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Emily Blunt, Natalie Portman, the list of globetrotting Rovanesses goes on …) popping up all over the internet. And the brand is really doing something right, because their glasses look good on everybody.
One of my favorites, the No. 3 Mercury 7 on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley:
Kate Bosworth in No. 2 Louisiana Purchase:
The company’s concept is pretty cool: For every pair they sell, they donate $10 to a charity represented by a stripe of material on the frames. In fact, Westward Leaning only has one frame design and the sunglasses vary in the unique material (brass, wood, antler, etc.) representative of the cause it celebrates.
I’d love to get a pair of these in time for my next vacation. Since the design is so classic without being boring, they’re the kind of shades that could look good with just about anything, whether I’m doing some casual sightseeing or heading to an early evening dinner with my date.
What do you think? Chic, no?
