Top 6 costume ideas for this Halloween to pair with your favorite glasses!

New York, NY, 2019-Oct-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — Spooky Season is upon us, which means two things for me; binge-watching Hocus Pocus and Halloween!

But with Halloween comes the age old question, what am i going to wear? It’s the one time out of the year where you can go all out, whether you’re serving looks or serving spooks, Halloween is Christmas for Jack Skellington and some creative fans! But as someone who wears glasses and doesn’t enjoy wearing contacts, it can be hard to find the right costume where my glasses actually makes sense with the character!

Every year finding the perfect costume is a real struggle it’s always the same dilemma and every year I hear the same rambling of ideas “I want to wear something sexy, but like also something scary that shows off my curves but also covers me up and just something that breathes but is also really heavy but it HAS to be creative but also really simple…” Someone who ends up going as a sexy cat.

But Halloween shouldn’t be about looking sexy, I mean wow you’re going as a sexy nurse? No, a medical professional would know to put clothes on in this weather.

See? It’s just not realistic. But if spooky isn’t your thing, I’ve got you covered.

Instead the best looks are when you fully committed to the look, be the Meryl Streep of Halloween, as long as the final look is BEWITCHING!

Here are the top 6 Halloween costumes perfect for fellow glasses wearers:

  • Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, we recommend this pair of Anoushka Tom Ford to have your own Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
  • The iconic rocket man, Sir Elton John. Get this Spitfire Hype Gold/ Red Mirror pair and be ready to make some tiny dancer moves.
  • Our favorite wizard Harry Potter, buy the Emerson by SmartBuy collection.
  • John Lennon, this round Polaroid come in every color. Just need to find your other 3 beatles.
  • Hop on the mystery machine and put this SmartBuy collection Polly to get Velma’s look.
  • Wear the timeless Ray-Ban wayfarer and get some Campbelle’s soup … Voila Andy Warhol.

Hopefully you’ve found some costume inspiration here, they’re not spooky but I guaranteed you will turn a few heads. Find all this eyewear options at Smartbuyglasses.com and get the Halloween special offer on glasses, not only for your costume but your daily wear.

Debenhams reveals British tourists are marking their territory on the beach

Debenhams, the high street store, has revealed that super-sized beach towels, able to occupy extra room on crowded shores and sun loungers are soaring in popularity.

Debenhams logo - links to home page

Customers are using them to mark out more territory during holidays, providing a better defence against incursions from rival tourists fighting for space in the most popular resorts.

The new towels http://www.debenhams.com/home-furniture/towels are up to 65 per cent bigger than normal, and designed using distinctive, bold, bright colours, making it obvious that the space is already occupied, even when the owner isn’t there.

Debenhams spokeswoman, Michelle Dowdall, said: “We’re calling it The Churchill Factor. British tourists have never forgotten his war time rallying call.

“They’re more determined than ever to ‘fight them on the beaches’ but this time they’re doing so using an entirely new Maximum Occupation technique.”

Just two of these beach towels http://www.debenhams.com/home-furniture/towels/beach-towels , side by side, will occupy and block off more space than three normal sized towels did in the past. This means that a family of four British tourists, each armed with a super-sized towel, is now able to mark out up almost two thirds more prized beach side territory than before, putting competitors at a distinct disadvantage.

Applied on a national scale, it means that British tourists could be occupying up to 65 per cent more room on many of the best holiday beaches across the world this year.

Michelle Dowdall continued: “We don’t believe that rival tourists will take the introduction of bigger British beach towels lying down. It’s bound to spark the equivalent of an arms race in the beach towel industry, with a trend towards even bigger more vibrant models. However, none of this should create any extra tension during the family break. Experts tell us that the main reason for arguments on the beach is the lack of space between rival factions.

“Bigger towels will ensure that each holiday maker has greater personal space. They will be a force for peace rather than conflict.

“The key, as always, will be to get to prized areas early.”

Sales are increasing an average of 10% week on week, as families get set for their summer holidays.

The supersized towels measure 180cm by 90cm. Until now, beach towels have measures just 150cm by 70cm – a 65 per cent difference.

Kaenon Polarized Releases New Sunglasses For Holiday ’09

Kaenon Polarized™ , the Newport Beach-based maker of lifestyle and performance sunglasses, proudly announces the Holiday arrival of three new Luxury Performance frame designs for men and women.  The men’s and women’s sunglass styles will be available November 1 and launched to retail in limited release through Kaenon’s premium dealer network, including 20 southwest Nordstrom locations.

Designed in California and made in Italy, PINO™ and BURNET™ are modern, west coast interpretations of retro-period designs that are pure Luxury Performance to be worn equally, by both men and women.  JOSS™ was inspired by, and designed with racecar-driving pop star Danica Patrick for women looking for something feminine and stylish, yet comfy and sporty in a women’s sunglass.

The initial Holiday 2009 release will make each style available in a rich, gloss black frame with the company’s patented SR-91 polarized lens in Grey 12™ as well as a new frame color the company calls Havana – a beautiful tobacco brown accented by deep, dark rich tones.  Each frame is hand painted and assembled in Italy following Kaenon’s creative direction and strict quality control.  Joss will offer Havana with Copper 12™ SR-91 polarized lenses, while Burnet and Pino will house G12 lenses in Havana.  Each frame is Rx adaptable with Kaenon’s SR-91 prescription lenses – in Single Vision or Freestyle™ Progressive.

PINO
Simple, clean, and stylish, PINO is a modern, west coast take of a 50’s-period classic to be worn by both men and women looking for a moderately sized fun, yet functional sunglass.  Designed in California, made in Italy, Pino’s injection molded TR-90 8-base wrapped frame is pure Luxury Performance.  Old school styling with low-key Kaenon branding engraved on a decorative metal inlay, all defy Pino’s light weight, performance fit.  Only further enhanced by our patented SR-91 polarized lenses that provide unsurpassed razor sharp optical clarity and glare reduction.  Pino comes with a protective metal case and is Rx adaptable.  MSRP begins at $229.

BURNET
BURNET is a subtle reshaping and condensed interpretation of our popular, retro-inspired Burny™ frame style.  Designed to be worn by both women and men equally, it’s a timeless, classic design that features subtle, yet distinctive styling with the performance and comfort Kaenon Polarized is known for.  Easy to wear for a wide variety of face shapes, and featuring a throw-back temple design highlighted by discrete branding and logo detailing in a pure metal inlay, this durable, performance-wrapped TR-90 frame houses 8-base SR-91 polarized lenses for razor sharp optical clarity and unsurpassed glare reduction.   Made in Italy, BURNET comes with a protective metal case and is Rx adaptable.  MSRP begins at $229.

JOSS
Inspired by Danica Patrick, and designed with input from the racecar-driving pop star, JOSS is the shapely sister to our popular Georgia™ frame style that Danica has been so instrumental in popularizing.   Joss is distinguished by a slightly oversized round lens shape, enhanced by supple, curvy surfaces that taper aft into thin sleek temples that support our female-fit geometry.   Made in Italy using TR-90 frame material, Joss is light weight, durable and super comfy, with buried Variflex nose pads for additional comfort and security that come standard as do the wrapped 8-base SR-91 polarized lenses for maximum protection with unsurpassed razor sharp optical clarity and glare reduction.  Complete with a protective metal case and Rx adaptable, Joss is the choice in women’s sunglasses that begs to be worn…and loves to play!  MSRP begins at $209.

Kaenon Polarized has quickly become the luxury performance choice of those who live the Southern California lifestyle to its fullest. Superior lens performance is the engine that differentiates Kaenon Polarized sunglasses, verified by scientists and validated by professionals in both land and water sports such as, sailing, golf, baseball, snow, surf, paddling, fishing, cycling, climbing and driving, as well as celebrities in film and music.

At the core of every Kaenon Polarized sunglass is the company’s proprietary and patented SR-91 ® lens material. No other lens on the market offers better clarity, impact protection, and glare reduction, all in one ultra-lightweight lens. Every SR-91 polarized lens carries a Lifetime Guarantee against delamination, cracking or splitting – including Kaenon Polarized prescription sunglasses made from SR-91 prescription polarized lenses.

With an initial 20+-store launch that started in July, Nordstrom will sell all three new Kaenon Polarized sunglass styles in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, and Hawaii – including its four flagship locations at South Coast Plaza, Fashion Valley Mall, The Grove and Scottsdale.  Including Nordstrom in this initial Holiday launch of Burnet, Pino and Joss, demonstrates the success both companies have enjoyed since partnering in July – with sales of Kaenon Polarized sunglasses out-performing Nordstrom expectations.

“Nordstrom has always been the first to recognize true leadership and trend direction in fashion and sensibility, and we’re very excited they’ve shown such confidence in Kaenon Polarized to once again demonstrate their knack for quality product and ability to differentiate themselves with distinctive brands,” said Steve Rosenberg, Co-Founder and CEO of Kaenon Polarized. “Nordstrom not only understands the trends, they have exceptional insight behind the product that drives those trends,” he added.
