As you guys know, I am always on the hunt for the coolest new collaboration. I think it is really special when two companies can come together to produce something totally unique, all thanks to a collaborative effort. I was recently contacted by Warby Parker, and was asked if I wanted to help announce their latest project with Kill Screen, a major video game arts and culture company. In addition to creating a totally free video game, Warby Parker X Kill Screen is releasing a limited-edition pair of glasses in the popular Burke frame, featuring an embossed Kill Screen logo in their signature red. While I don't wear prescription glasses, I like that this exclusive pair can even serve as an additional accessory because of its simplicity. If you want to check out Warby Parker's other frames, click here to see them all!
I thought it would be fun to style a couple of outfits around this new collaboration, including splashes of red to tie in the color on the glasses. Both companies believe in embracing the unexpected and letting loose, and I think these looks perfectly embody that state of mind. Tell me in a comment which look is your favorite, and how you would wear the Burke frame in Glacier Grey. xoxo Isabelle

This first look is definitely the dressier of the two, but it can easily be taken from day to night. While my favorite elements are those dressier pieces (the strappy heels, patent-leather bag, etc), this outfit can totally be paired with a pair of sneakers, like those used in the second look. More importantly, each item above is a wardrobe staple in and of itself, as they're all versatile for fall attire. I can't get over how cool this denim jacket is, from the font to the pairing of the pink and red for the text, which goes perfectly with the Warby Parker X Kill Screen glasses. I know how fall can be quite fickle in nature, so I went with a knit top, which can keep you marginally warm when it's too hot to wear the jacket, but too cold to just be sporting a short-sleeve top.
Although I aspire to dress in the style of the first look, I'll admit that I'd go for this second outfit without hesitancy (heels are not my thing, as much as I'd like them to be). Pieces like leather jackets and black high-waisted skirts are just so easy going, and can be transformed based on what style you're feeling that day. The best part of this set is that you can wear it through the winter, just adding knit tights to keep warm. Where this outfit shines most, though, is the accessories. The clothing alone isn't too exciting, but the red cross-body, printed scarf, and black and white sneakers add some pizzazz to an otherwise boring outfit.
