Remember when this used to be a style blog? Just because I haven't been posting about fashion and trends doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about them! Take the clubmaster sunglasses that have, of late, pervaded the hipster scene (blarg). Its roots lie in the 1960s and 70s, when they were called "browline" glasses for the way they mimicked the straight-across style. And with trend pioneers like Malcolm X and Colonel Sanders repping their style, it's hard to discount their influence on modern society. Ray-Ban added to its wayfarer frame fame and brought the design back in the late 80s and renamed them "clubmaster." They're retro, classic and perfect for a California summer. How would you style your clubmasters?
