Chanel Unveils an Online Optical Boutique

Just in time for hittin' the books.

Whether you're diving into an old classic or a new release, there's no better way to soak up the last days of outdoor reading than with a new pair of glasses. Now, Chanel is inviting you to level up your frames with the launch of their online optical boutique (bespectacled online shoppers, rejoice!).

Aside from sweatpants, these may be your most practical fashion purchase of the year. A chic pair of glasses are easy on the eyes (no pun intended), especially if you're usually a contact lens wearer, and now there's no excuse not to do it in style. From cheeky cat eyes to the understated cool of an optical aviator, the maison's optical offerings don't fall short. For the fashion-forward and absent-minded, there are even ones that come a pearl strand or chain, so you don't have to worry about them going missing in the exact spot where you "swore you just saw them."

Priced from $370 to $1170, the range of styles are certainly investment eyewear, but for something that's designed to be put on daily, the cost per wear checks out. Shop below for our favorite styles to bring your best bookish look straight into fall.
