Friday Fashion Debate: Spectacles

I may have lost half of you before you even got past the title, so I will explain. This is not a post about corrective eyeglasses or your cute grandpa with reading glasses that sit on the edge of his nose. We are talking about Snapchat Spectacles because I am obsessed! The Spectacles are sunglasses that record video from the perspective of the wearer.

After launching our Snapchat account in March 2016, our followers grew rapidly! We had no idea if the start of that account would work well or if students would even care to follow what we were posting there but the feedback was wonderful!

Now that we know Snapchat is beneficial for us, I am determined to get a pair of Snapchat Spectacles.

Are you thinking “just go out and buy some then”? Well that’s the problem. Spectacles are being sold via vending machines that get dropped off at random locations across the country. There is a countdown page and once the new location is announced you better get there quickly because the lines get outrageous and they do eventually sell out!

Ok so how does this relate to Fashion? Well some people love the style of these but others say they are hideous.

These are the three colors for Spectacles. Matching lipstick not included.:

They come in three different colors but only one style/shape. Personally, this particular shape wouldn’t be my first choice if I were buying everyday normal sunglasses. However, they could be much worse. I think consideration that they need to be slightly fashionable was put into the design of these but others disagree completely.

What do you think? Are the acceptable as a trendy fashion accessory or simply only for technology trends?
