Singer-songwriter, Avril Lavigne, has kept herself busy over the years. Not only has Avril Lavigne’s music career achieved multiple number one albums, she has also founded her own charity, “The Avril Lavigne Foundation”, launched her own clothing line, Abbey Dawn, and just recently announced her engagement to Nickleback front man, Chad Kroeger.
Avril’s deliberate and bold punk rock style which is mimicked in her Abbey Dawn clothing line is also hard to go unnoticed, especially when it’s accessorized with edgy eyeglasses designs such as the thick black acetate eyeglasses shown above or the feline inspired clubmaster design seen below.
When asked what inspires her Abbey Dawn designs, Avril Lavigne replies:
“Pretty much my closet and what I’m wearing. I like to be casual, I like to be comfortable. I like rock and roll elements like plaid, studs, skulls, stripes. I like classic, kind of rock and roll patterns and prints, like leopard and zebra. I just make it girly and do fun things with sparkles, pink and purple.” – Style Bistro

Avril Lavigne’s bold design philosophy, as seen with her own Abbey Dawn designs, translates with her eyeglasses style choices as well. Avril is commonly seen around town wearing over sized black Retro-Wingtip frames, as well as fire engine red eyeglasses in the same exaggerated shape. Avril Lavigne wore these exact red Retro-Wingtip eyeglasses to the launch of her Abbey Dawn clothing line (below right).
