Lady Gaga and Sean Lennon show us how to wear retro frames

As well as the 40s being a major player in the style-games at the moment, the soulful sounds of the 50s have been making a comeback too. With the deaths of three very talented artists; Etta James, Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston this year, soul music isn’t just finding its voice again, it’s becoming hugely vocal in the fashion industry too.

There has been a plethora of celebrities going for the retro eyewear option. Lady Gaga (seen above with John Lennon’s son, Sean) really prettys up a pair of aviator frames, whilst Sean Lennon showcases his family jeans, looking timelessly handsome in a classic wayfarer style. More recently, US songwriter and singer, Raphael Saadiq has been snapped working a pair of retro spectacles into his sartorial attire very nicely.
