Introducing the Spring Collection

We’re diving right into spring. And why not? The sun is shining, there’s blue water somewhere, and we’ve all got warm weather on the mind.

We’re diving right into spring. And why not? The sun is shining, there’s blue water somewhere, and we’ve all got warm weather on the mind. It feels like a good time to introduce some fresh frames.

This season’s eight new shapes and six new colors have some added depth (literally). Classic at first glance, but look a little deeper and you’ll discover nautical design details borrowed from the open sea: anchor-hued titanium blended with blue coral acetate, sandy shades modeled after rippled ocean floors, saltwater matte finishes, jellyfish-inspired tortoise, and more—including a handful of solid standbys.

Introducing the Annual Report Generator

Ever wondered what your spirit animal is? Or which emoji characters best represent your temperament? Or how many muscles you’ve acquired?

We can help with that.

Ever wondered what your spirit animal is? Or which emoji characters best represent your temperament? Or how many muscles you’ve acquired?

We can help with that.

Our make-your-own Annual Report Generator gives you your very own customized ’n unique Annual Report to share with friends and family. All you need to do is answer a few simple questions and we’ll transform your data into colorful, decidedly non-scientific (yet highly specific!) output.

It’s a fun way to learn a bit more about your past 365 days. Let’s go!

New Year, New You (or something like that)

Or maybe New Year, Do You is better? Either way, it’s January 6—and there’s still time to make a New Year’s resolution if you like. (Or break your existing one.)

Enter these beauties.

Or maybe New Year, Do You is better?

Either way, it’s January 6—and there’s still time to make a New Year’s resolution if you like. (Or break your existing one.)

Enter these beauties.

Remember those postcards your dentist’s office would have us address to ourselves when we were younger? You’d write out your name and address, and the office would mail it back to you later in the year to remind you to book your next check-up.

In that spirit, but with zero novocaine and less cavity stress, we had the talented Julia Rothman (follow her on Instagram) illustrate a postcard featuring hyper-determined (resolute, if you will) fellow on a self-improvement bender.

Come by our stores and fill out your New Year’s resolution, then hand the postcard back to a retail employee. We’ll hold onto them tight and send it back to you later in the year—postage is on us. It’ll be a nice little treat in the mail.

Everyone’s a winner

Here’s one of the gifts up for grabs in our stores this season: a fold-it-yourself fortune teller. Download your own, print it, and start playing.

Starting this weekend, we have a little something in store for you and yours, inspired by Good Luck Omens for the Modern Era, the first publication from our very own Warby Parker Press.

Swing by a store near you to take a turn at our Wheel of Good Omens—completely free, completely fun—for a prize (and a nice break from last-minute holiday shopping stressors). Oh, and everyone’s a winner, did we mention?

If you can’t make it, here’s one of the gifts up for grabs: a fold-it-yourself fortune teller. (Maybe you know it as a cootie catcher.) Download your own here, print it, and start playing.


DIRECTIONS

1. Grab a friend.

2. With the printed side facing down, fold diagonally each way across the paper.

3. Fold along the lines so the points meet in the middle. The numbers and colors should be facing up now.

4. Flip over and fold the corners into the middle.

5. Fold in half both ways.

6. Insert fingers into the pockets.

7. Play. (Or Google “how to play fortune teller.”)

8. Share your fortune and see what others got with #warbygoodomens.

Can’t wait to see what happens!
